Adiyen,Srinivasa Sarangan, joined the Bhakti group
last October.It has been a great experience
in knowing so many aspects of Vaishnavism from
several learned scholars. I only wish I had joined
group much earlier.
It was indeed a shocking news to hear about the
passing away of Sri Mukkoor swamiji. I have heard
lot about him and  read some of his articles in Sr
Nrisimha Priya.  It was indeed a great privilage
for me and my wife to see   the great scholar when
he made an unscheduled visit to Balaji temple
complex here in Nerul,New Mumbai early last month.
The occasion was the Samprokshanam of the
Sri Laksmmi Nrisimha temple in the Balaji temple
complex, which incidently is  developing fast into
magnificent religious centre. The swamiji gave a
discourse on Lord Lakshmi Nrisimha  for about an
and the big gathering of devotees was spellbound
by his command over Tamil and Sankrit. The swamiji

went into trance at the end of discourse and was
in that state for more than an hour in front of
perumal sannadhi.  Many of us felt that Sri
Lakshmi Nrisimhsa Himself had descended over the
new temple to bless the devotees.  My wife and I
can never forget the incident. We were looking
forward to some other occasions to listen to his
discourses. Hence the news of the swamiji reaching

Acharyan Thiruvadi  suddenly last week at Kakinada
is stunning.  Strange are the ways of God
and we can only hope and pray that we will
continue to have the blessings of the great soul.
