Dear BhakthAs of Bhumi Devi SamEtha ThiruviNNagaran :

It gives me great joy to thank every one of you
who have sent checks (21) or in the process of 
sending checks (6) for the Mutthangi MahA kaimkaryam 
for the Uthsavars of AakAsa Nagaram .

The total amount of funds received sofar 
from 21 BhakthAs is $1,388 ( Rupees 51,356 at
the exchange conversion rate of 37 Rupees to a Dollar ).
We are awaiting additional checks to the total of $255 from 
six more BhakthAs , which is equivalent to Rupees 9435.
The total would then be Rupees 60,791 , when all the 
remaining checks are received . I will forward this
amount in  a week's time or send whatever that is received 
by that time. Today , we have $1,388 ( Rs.51,356 ) on hand .

I can not thank you enough for your generous support of this 
magnificient Kaimkaryam . It is just like the squirrels 
collecting sands on their bodies to help build the 
Raama Sethu. In  this instance , it is the pearls instead of 
the grains of sand that goad the Oysters to create 
the pearls . 

May the Divya Dampathis' blessings
be with all of you and your families . May their 
blessings be with every member of this precious
group , which supports so many kaimkaryams ,
many times anonymously . May MahA Lakshmi 
continue to shower wealth on every one of You to continue 
your tradition of Bhagavadh/Bhaagavatha Kaimkaryams.
