     Dear  bhaktAs of VeerarAghava PerumAL,
    
     Namo NArAyanA . kindly accept adiyen's pranAmams. 

    Our dear rAghavan must have been highly pleased by the way in which
the bhAgavathAs of bhakti list responded , when they were given an
oppurtunity to serve Him. Within a very short span of 5 days , around
$1215.0 were contributed by 24 bhAgavathAs , with the highest contribution
by an individual bhAgavathA being  $253.0. The exact amount contributed
will be informed soon after adiyen receives few more checks.

     
       Our VeerarAghava perumAL has blessed these bhAgavathAs with
varieties of prasAdams. Sri K.G.Krishnan swAmy kindly requested PerumAL, 
through the temple authorities ,to give the VERY PRECIOUS "PerumAL
Vastram" for the bhakti list bhAgavathAs for their timely help in the last
minute.Our rAghavan having pleased with the bhAgavathAs ,has blessed them
all with His "Udduthu KaLaindha Vastram". 

  
 ( Uduthhuk kaLaintha nin peethakavAdai uduththu kaLaththathundu 
   Thoduthha thuzhAi malar soodikkaLainthana soodum ith thondarkaLom... )
  
    
    Its a very rare benediction from rAghavan.Usually ,this PRECIOUS
prasAdam is  distributed only to VERY SELECTED devotees . Its our
bhAgyam that rAghavan has arranged this through His instrument Sri
K.G.Krishnan swAmy (adiyen's father). Needless to say , all the bhAgavthAs
will be preserving this Udduththuk kaLaintha vastram of perumAL with
great devotion in their PerumAL Sannidhi. During ThiruvArAdhanam , one can
certainly remember rAghavan by making the vastram bless(contact) our eyes
("BhavyamA Kannula Otthikkondu vaithuvidalAm". Sorry for a poor
expression in english). Atleast on very auspicious days , one should get
the blessings of perumAL's vastram (if one is not performing
thiruvArAdhanam unfortunately ).


 ( Very sorry to address the lord directly as  'rAghavan', without any
prefixes & suffixes like 'Sri' ,'Lord','PerumAl'etc . From
adiyen's childhood , it has become a habit to call our VeerarAghava
perumAl as 'rAghavan' itself. adiyen is more comfortable (more personal
relation )  in calling the lord directly as 'rAghavan'& this habit stems
from adiyen's father. ) 


       All the prasAdams were despatched by Sri K.G.Krishnan , who took
the kainkaryam (sponsorship of $1000) of PrasAdam distribution. He has
taken enormous  efforts to distribute the prasAdams to all the devotees
(including bhakti list devotees) who participated in the kainkaryam. The
mailing charges were taken care off by Sri K.G.Krishnan himself. So , the
the amount contributed by the bhAgavathAs goes directly to PerumALs
kainkaryam.

    Please do unpack the prasAdams when you are very pure (external +
internal) & kindly remember the dayA of rAghavan (reflections from 
pAsurams , slokams etc).
