We in Chicago are very fortunate to have Sriman. U. V. Srinath, a priest in
the Rama Temple who is very learned in Ubhaya Vedanta. For the last fifteen
months he has been giving discourses on Tiruppavai (once a week) which was
attended by a small band of interested devotees. His discourses are entirely
based on Sri Vaishnava vyaakhyaanas and it has been a great spiritual
experience to the listeners. He is going to begin discourses on
Tiruppalliyezhucchi shortly (actually this evening).
