Another interesting fact is that adhyayana utsavam of
tiruvengadamudayaan at tirumalai preceeds that of Govindaraja perumal
of tirupati (keezh tiruppati) by 2 pakshams. I vaguely remember that
anadhayana calendars themselves are shifted accordingly (I am not
sure on this one).

Let me take this opportunity to congratulate Chicago community for
taking up the pious task of divyaprabandha parAyanam. This effort is
certainly towards, as swami desikan said, ".. thondaimandala vEdhiyar 
vaazhavE, thooya thenmarai vallavar vaazhavE".
