           All Bhaktas, my humble Namaskarams. 
                       First of all I introduce myself as
R.Padmanabhan, working in ENRON Oil and Gas India, Ltd, at Bombay
offshore platforms, and operating on 14 days ON/OFF duty. My family is
settled in Madras, staying in West Mambalam. I am very much intetested
 in Srimad Bhagavatham. In our family all of us read Srimad
Bhagavatham. I am having two kids, one daughter 7 years old and son 13
years old. Both the children also takes interest in Bhagavatham. We
are a disciple of Sri SRI KRISHNA PREMI SWAMIGAL of Paranoor. We are
having long association with Sri.Sri Krishna Premi swamigal who is
famouly known as ANNA amongst the Bhaktas. 
             In our family, myself and my elder brother have conducted
Srimad Bhagavatha Sapthaham twice independently in our homes for the
last two years. Parayanam and discourse by Sri.Hariji, Anna's elder
son, who is 21 years old. He is MA literature and studying the vedas
at present. Sri.Hariji is going to give three lectures in London in
March and April this year. It is worth hearing. Those who are
interested, please avail this great opportunity. It is said that only
with Poorva Janma Punya, we get Bhagavath. "BHAGYODAYENA BAHU JANMA
             I got all your address from the Bhakti archives and very
much impressed by the active participation of the Bhaktas. I would
like to know more about Srimad Bhagavatham and I can share my
experiences and knowledge of Srimad Bhagavatham. Please give me more
             I read the Kannan & Hanuman similarities. Very
informative. I would like to share butter story of Bhagavatham. In the
Dasama Skandam in Bhagavatham, during the Navaneetha Chora leela, God
Krishna is giving the stolen butter to all children and monkeys.  He
is giving the monkeys the butter, because of the Poorva Janma ReNam (
Kadam ) to Hanuman. In Ramayana, Sri.Rama is saying to Hanuman, "NA
KURMI SADRESAM PRIYAM",  meaning  I am not able to give the
compensation for your service. That compensation, GOD is fulfilling by
giving the butter. The butter story never appears in the Ramayana, but
it appears in Bhagavatham, in Dasama Skandam, " MARKAN BHOKSHYAN
             Similarly there are lot of interesting subjects, like
etc. I will write after hearing from you all.

             Thanks and regards.
             Again Namaskar.
