Dear SriMaan MahaVishnu Swami,
		There is small correction in your posting regarding the
Swyam Vyakta Kshetrams.They are 10 Kshetrams and not 8 as you mentioned.

They are as follows.
	(1)  Srirangam  (Also called Yoga Mandapam)
	(2)  Tirupati   (Also called  Pushpa Mandapam)
	(3)  SriMushnam (Lord Varaaha Swami temple in
			Villupuram-to-Ariyalur Area)
	(4)  Vaanamaamalai (South tamilnadu)
	(5)  Naimisaaranyam  (Near Lucknow)
	(6)  Pushkaram (Pushkar) (Near Ajmer)
	(7)  Saalagraamam    (In Nepal)
	(8)  Badrikaasramam  (Badrinath)
	(9)  Kanchipuram    (Dhyaana Mandapam)
	(10) Melkote (Thiunaarayanapuram)  (Gnana mandapam)

These Shrines' perumal fotos have been inscribed as a painting in the
wall in Srirangam temple in a place called "Kili mandapam" which has its
own significance,which is just left side of Sanctum Sanctorium and is in
the "Pradakshinaa path" next to Thiruvannaazhi Pradakshinaaa path ,called
as Raaja Mahendran Thiruchchutru in tamil.

	I was told by my elders to have a Darshan of all Kshetrams in one
place after I worship Lord Sri Ranganatha.People used to Pray to those
Swayam Vyakta Perumals when they were in a state of Distress which I had
watched as a resident of Srirangam.

	Daasadaasoham,
	Adiyen,
	Parthasarathy.
