Re: [ramanuja_society] Acharya Vaibhavam - Denver Oct 27th & 28th - Report.

Respected Ramanuja Bhaktas,

Madhuri and I, along with my brother-in-law, Ranganath, feel truly blessed to have had the opportunity to
engage in this wonderful celebration of AzhwAr-AchArya vaibhavam with our fellow devotees from Denver,
Chicago and Houston.  My sincere thanks to all those who participated  for all your hard work and support
in making this conference so successful and spiritually inspiring.

As Sri Mukundan has so well described, the highlight of the occasion was the processional (porrapAdu) for
Sri Rama pariwAram, that brought bhaktas from both kalais together with Gaudiya Vaishnavas, and a host of
interested devotees from the Asian Indian and Western communities to rejoice in the beauty of the Lord on
His palenquin.  To me, it served as an unprecedented example of the unifying and all-inclusive nature of
Sri Ramanuja sampradAyam.   The atmosphere of pure service and devotion shown by all who accompanied the
Lord through the busy streets surrounding Sri RadhaGovinda Temple brought to my mind and heart images of
utsavams in divya dEshams.  At times, it was difficult for me to hold back the tears of joy that I felt.

A wonderful play highlighting the importance of simple faith by the young children of our community only
added to the joy of this occasion.

With the Grace of our Divine Couple, Sri RadhaGovinda, the Denver community looks forward to hosting
another conference of this type in the very near future.
