Seetha Rama Kalyanam at Buffalo

I want to thank Mr. Sadagopan for sharing the history of Sampradhaya Bhajans.  
As I already mentioned in one of my previous postings on Ekadashi, nothing can 
equal the pleasure of group-singing.  It involves every one equally.  Presently 
we are making some efforts to bring in Alwar's pasurams as part of the 
programme.  I sometimes wonder how come the Sri Vaishnavas have missed this 
aspect of worship.  Perhaps it might have been lost.

  I would also like to mention about a great Mahathma Sundara Kumar, whose 
audio-tapes have a profound influence in turning us all towards our roots.  
Please recall the recent posting of Lakshmi Narayana about the need for setting 
aside time for contemplation.  Many members of the Buffalo community perform 
sandhya vandhanam etc., very regularly after hearing and contemplating on Shri 
Sundara Kumar's upanyasam.  Among other things, the part I like most in Shri 
Sundara Kumar's lectures are his affectionate reference to Swami Desika and 
Bhattadhry (Narayaneeyam).
