Dear Bhagavathas, 

With the grace of HH Sri Rangaramanuja Mahadesikan and the blessings of Sri Ranganatha Divya Dampathi, Sri Ramanuja Mission of Sri Rangam Srimad Andavan Periyashramam is extremely pleased to announce the release of the last three CD-volumes (of a six-volume set) of Sri Desika Sthothra Mala.  These slokas were beautifully and elegantly rendered by Srimans Shyam Sundar Sreenivasan and Venkatanathan Sreenivasan.  Each title is preceded by a short introductory commentary in English.  These three CDs were released during Sri Ramanuja Jayanthi Celebrations at Sri Venkateshwara Temple, NJ  on April 28 and  at  Sri Ranganatha Temple, NY on April 29, 2001.  These CDs will also be made available online at for the benefit of all bhagavathas.  Please stand by for further announcements on these CDs.    

It may be recalled that this project was started by the Mission in the November of 1997 and the first three CDs were released during Sri Ramanuja Jayanthi Celebrations in the August of 1999.  Sri Ramanuja Mission thanks all bhagavathas for the overwhelming response to these first three CDs and takes it as an indication of your respect and dedication to Swami Sri Desikan.  We hope that this four-year project is a fitting tribute to Kavitharkika Simha, Sarvathanthra Swathanthra, Vedanthacharya Swami Sri Desikan's works.
Sri Ramanuja Mission wishes to thank Vaikuntavasi U.Ve. Sri Kannan Swami of MD (who is not with us to see his dream project come true) and Oppiliappan Koil Varadachari U.Ve. Sri Sadagopan Swami of NY for their wise insight and valuable guidance over the years.  There are no words to express our gratitude and appreciation for their time and efforts.
Sarvam Sri Krishnarpanamasthu!
