Dearest Srivaishnavas,

Sri U Ve Seva Swamy has attained AChAryan Thiruvadi. I was not fortunate to see
him.
But I am blessed to have read many of his articles- all on Swamy Dsikan and his
granthas.. His bhakti for Swamy Desikan
is unmatched and used to breathe only Swamy Desikan's granthas. Smt Praveena had
written 108 posts about two years ago
for Swamny Desikan Thirunakshathram (one post a day), and when I asked her as to
how on earth she is able to get such depths
of material and that too everyday, she simply replied, "it is all due to Sri
Seva Swamy's great book on Swamy Desikan.."

Our list member Sri Damal Patthani KaNNan Swamin (who is at Singaproe now with
his daughter) had written the following
on Sri Seva Swamy:
=============================
SRIMATHE RAMANUJAYA NAMAHA:

SRIMATHE NIGAMNTHA MAHA DESIKAYA NAMAHA;

Deeply shocked to know about the sad news of the passing away of Sri  Seva
Swamy.He was one of the illustrious torch bearers
 of of Sri Desika Sathsampradhayam.He did yeo men service to our Sampradhayam
and notably during the 700th birth
 anniversary year of Swamy Desikan in 1967 when he used to publish one grantha
of The Great Acharyan every day
and started the Sravana uthsavam at chennai.His Acharya bhakthi is matchless. He
 was a tireless publisher of
Swamy Desikan's Divya Srisukthis .He had done lot of kainkaryams to our Sath
Sampradhyam and a notable
 one is the publication of yearly Desika Dharsana Diary .Apart from being a
Diary it is a veritable treasure house
of information regarding naimithika, nithyakarmaunushatnams for the
SriVaishnavites including Sandhyavandanam ,
Bhaghavath Thiruvaradhanam and Amavasya darsa Sradhams and the procedure for
doing these. He was very
 practical in his day to day life and was one of the guiding spirits behind the
Desika Darsanam. His loss is irrepairable
 and our deepfelt condolonces to his family and ardent followers like adien,may
kindly be conveyed.

Adiyen Ramanuja dasan,

We join Sri Kannan in expressing our heartfelt condolences to the entire gamut
of Srivaishnavas
