Dear Members of the Prapatti group:

I would like to bring to your attention the existence of the above journal, if
you are not already familiar. I write often for that magazine, becaue it has  a
theme, which is about Adi Sankara"s Shanmathas and also about the Hindu Dharmas
and Shastras. The Editor has now moved to Edison, NJ as a part of the efforts to
Internationalize that Journal and also to manage the Newly created Sringeri
Sadhana Center in Poconos, Pa. At that center,the Icons of Sri Sarada Devi,
Ganesa and Adi Sankara have been consecrated and most recently , they
celebrated Navarathri in a magnificient fashion with Chandi Homam etc. Last
week, I am told that they had a Maha Gayari Homam in the prescribed manner.  Two
of the members of our group had  asked me for the address of the Editor Of
Tattvaloka to get the back issues on Hindu Samskaras.I thought some of our
members from the Saivite Tradition might also be interested in this Information.
You may  get  additional Information on the above center or the Tattvaloka
Journal (25$ per Year  subscribtion) at the following address:
Mr.T.R.Ramachandran, Editor,Tattvaloka
C/O Silverline Industries, 
53 Knightsbridge Road
Piscataway, NJ 08854
