  SRI   ANDAL   THUNAI     -        SAFE



Dear Friends:  A controversy has arisen because a donor from Hosur wants to
gift a golden chariot to Lord Ranganatha at Srirangam for devotees to
fulfil vows (nerthi-kadan).  The Sthalathar and other eminent people
associated with the temple and its history are not happy and say the image
of the Lord cannot be brought out in procession as and when one likes but
only according to the centuries-old rules laid down by Sri Ramanuja and
traditions.  The Executive Officer (appointed by the Government) feels that
 golden chariot processions of the Lord for devotees to fulfil their vows
would augument the income of the temple.  I would like to have your
reactions, if any.  Prema Nandakumar

                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                           
                                                                       
..........ALL THINGS CAN BE DONE IF THE GOD TOUCH IS THERE ............

        WITH BEST WISHES                         PREMA  NANDAKUMAR
