Dear BhakthAs of the SaraNya Dampathis of ThiruviNNagar:

Your support for this Kaimkaryam has been overwhelmingly
positive . Most Recently , following bhakthAs have pledged 
or sent additional contributions beyond those acknowledged
in earlier progress reports :

1. Sriman R.Deepak and Srimathi Priya Deepak of 
   Marietta , Georgia
2. Sriman K.R.Srinivasan of Niwot, Colorado
3. Sriman Cadambi Sriram and Srimathi Kalpana Sriram
   of Toronto, Canada 
4. Sriman Lakshmi Srinivas Of Michigan and five of 
   his friends as a group from acros sthe USA
5. Sriman Kesavan Kannan of Gaithersburg, Maryland 
6. Srimathi Indira Prathivadi of Maryland 

A total of 40 BhakthAs have now joined together to raise 
$1650 against the original target of $1,400. The extra
$250 raised can only add to the creation of even more 
beautiful Mutthangis for the Uthsavars , Sri Ponnappan
and His consort , Sri Bhumi Devi . We hope to send the 
consolidated check to the Kaimkarya SabhA , which is 
supervising the colelction of contributions from 
BhakthAs in India and the construction of the Mutthnagi
by the well known artists , who have created similar 
Mutthnagis for Srirangam , Kanchi , Thiruppathi 
EmperumAns . The uniqueness of the AakAsa Nagareesa 
Mutthangi Kaimkaryam is that both the divya dampathis 
instead of Just the PerumAL will adorn the Mutthangis
presented by their children from wide and far .The check
for $1,650( Rupees 61,050 at the exchange rate of 37
rupees to a dollar ) will be sent during the first week of
April , 98 to Chennai . 

I expect the presentation of the Mutthangis to be made
on Kaisika EkAdasi or Iyppasi SravaNam day ,when their
KalyANa uthsavam celebration takes place . 

Once again , our thanks to Sri Sampath Rengarajan for the 
reproduction and distribution of the two special tapes 
to participants in this Mutthnagi Kaimkaryam . These tapes
celebrate the glories of the Divya Dampathis of 
Oppiliappan Koil in text and song .It is a lot of work 
for him and he hopes to get done in the next three 
or four weeks . Thanks for your patience .
This kaimkaryam is  being closed successfully as of 
Next Tuesday , March 31 , 1998 .
 
With prayers for the kshEmam of all BhakthAs 
at the sacred feet of Sri Bhumi Devi 
Sametha Sri Oppiliappan ,
