  Sri Anand's criteria for joint action are more than
  adequately met as the appeal was published in
  Sri Nrusimha Priya.  Sri Jaganath has pointed
  this out and I wholeheartedly concur.

  This theme of support for our Achaaryaas is preferrable
  compared to individual action was earlier expressed by
  Sri. Sumanth Kaushik.  I am in complete agreement with this.
  There is no better way to do this than support the fund raising
  drive that is in full swing in India for the 71st thirunakshathram
  of the Sri Lakshminrusimha Dhivya Paadhukaa sEvaka srivaN
  satakOpa sri naaraayaNa yatheendhra maHAdhEsikan.  The current
  issue of Sri Nrusimhapriyaa highlights the contribution of
  Rs. 1 lakh by Sri Sellappa of Nungambaakkam and a house he
  jointly owns with his brother.  The magazine also notes that
  such a contribution by a middle-class individual is actually
  worth several crores.  Let us draw inspiration from such
  great souls and participate in this unique opportunity to
  serve our achaaryaa.  Like Thirumangai AzhvAr says, "kulam
  tharum selvam thandhitum," it is our Lord Sriman Narayana
  who has given us the dollars and provides us the opportunity
  to serve our Acharya.  Let us make use of this opportunity.
  If you are persuaded, make your tax-deductible check to
  to Sri Ahobila Mutt, and mail it to Sri. Jaganath Bharadwaj,
  5539 Columbia, Arlington, VA 22204.

  BTW, the magazine also reports the award of 4 Gold Medals
  and a cash award for Sri. K. Muralidaran, by University
  of Madras.  Sri. Muralidaran is a 93-94 Siromani graduate
  from the Sri Mutt's Sanskrit College at Madhurandhagam.
  Our Acharya, Srimad Azhagiya Singar, has announced that
  He is taking up direct management control of this college.
  Srimadhazhagiya Singar has also expressed His committment
  for expanding the campus to include an Arts College and a
  Polytechnique Institute.  Needless to say that all these
  require a tremendous amount of financial resources.
