Dear Members; It was just  great Joy to read Sri Rengarajan"s
deeply researched article on Sri Bhooma Devi Sametha 
Sri Oppiliappan"s Sthala Puranam and Sravana Mahaatmyam.
Even though  I am a native of this Divya Desam, there were 
aspects about the Sthala Puranam and its traditions that I did not
know about. Thankk you Sri Rengarajan.It is clear that the constant
chintana about the Divya Dampathis and the Vrathams associated with them
blesses one in special ways and they keep your company , wherever you are.

Our dear Members have quickly responded to my appeal to join in 
the participation in the Oppiliappan Ratnangi Kainkaryam. Some of you 
have written to me directly. Others have expressed their interes to 
participate in this rare event and have advised Sri Rengarajan. 
The composite list from the input to Sri Rengarajan and myself is as 
follows alphabetically. Please forgive me if I have forgotten to include
any one , who has written to me or Sri Rengarajan.
