Dear SrI VaishNavas,

Quote Begins:
In three days, we have lost three mahAns of our sampradAyam ! Its a signal
that the present generation (elder and the young) should not waste more time
and should indulge much  more positively in various kai~nkaryams in
association with the current mahAns. Otherwise it would too late and there is
no point in lamenting later that "I missed the great oppurtunity of learning
under this mahAn and I don't have proper guidance now" etc. Lets not make
mahAns be merely glorious historical personalities of great merit and fame ;
instead lets devote more time to imbibe a lot from the current mahAns in
whatever capacity of an individual. While kAlskshEpam is the most important
aspect, there are many other things that needs to be learnt, attended and
served too.

These words are really worthy to be pondered. He who wrote these words is
absolutely doing the anushtAnam (practice) of the same. While I always think
of him as reincarnation of SrImath abhinava dESika swAmi, I also feel very
much depressed on hearing about the loss of three great scholars of our
sampradAyam. Also, separation from great vidwAns and thus lack of opportunity
for further pUrvAchArya granta kAlakshEpams makes me feel further depressed in
this context. I am waiting for Bhagavath sankalpam such that I go back to
India and continue with kAlakshEpams at the divine feet of SrI VaishNava
vidwAns. I pray at the lotus feet of SrImath Lakshmee hayagreevan for the
same. The words of SrI Anand are sharp and 
guiding as usual. Expressing highest regards for the words of SrI Anand, I 
request everyone to kindly consider the same.

Thanks & Regards
