Sri Krishna Kalale (CA) is giving lectures on Sri Ramanujacharya's Gita Bhasyam every Sunday evening and these lectures are transmitted all across USA by a conference call bridge. We have had two such lectures so far and the response has been...well...overwhelming. Here is what one of the participants had to say: The classes offered by Sri. Krishna Kalale are very informative, well structured & well rendered - something I look forward to eagerly every Sunday evening. Also the technology that is being used to deliver this is very impressive because of its easy accessibility and quality of lecture delivery. - Smt. Bharathi Srinivasa, NJ. Sri Kalale who has learn the Gita Bhasyam from his acharyas has planned this as a 20 hour lecture series. He has already covered the introduction and first chapter in two lectures and is ready to start talking about the various yoga-rahasyas that our beloved empuruman, Sri Parthasarathy, has bequeathed to mankind. The remaining 18 lectures by Sri Kalale will cover the remaining 17 chapters and then summarize the salient points in the final concluding lecture. Every lecture is for one hour. So friends, don't delay any further and come and register. This is not-for-profit and is done purely on a voluntary basis by Sri Kalale. If you decide to register, the only charges you will have to pay is for the conference call bridge connection. This comes to $8.00 per hour per line + local phone bill (which will be $3.00 if you have the AT&T / MCI 5cents/min weekend deal). So for approx. $10 you can listen to these lecture form the comfort of your homes and also record them if you want to reminiscence at a later date J adiyEn rAmAnuja dAsan Ramesh Sarangapani Here are some FAQ's: 1) Any contact people information? To register please contact Sri Parthasarathi Dileepan: Dileepan@utc.edu For more information, please contact Sri Krishna Kalale: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com 2) How to register? There are two steps to register. [a] Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with CC to email@example.com. In your e-mail, please include your name, address, phone number, and a list of the names of the participants and their respective ages. [b] In order to cover the cost of this scheme each caller will be charged a nominal fee of $8 for each 1 hour session. To keep the paper work to a minimum we request that the fees for 4 sessions be sent at one time. That is, if you sign up, please make a check out for $32 in favor of Sri Ahobila Muth and mail it to 1908 Preswood Dr., Hixson, TN 37343. This fee is for one caller. At the receiving end with a speaker phone any number of people may listen. The fee is still only $8 per session per caller. However, to keep track of the audience we request that all the participants register with us. 3) How to dial into the classroom? At the time of your registration you will be given a phone number. Dial this Class-Phone number no earlier than 2 minutes before the class. You will get a ringing sound as if no one was picking up if you call earlier, since you will be the first caller. In that case just call back after one minute you will be on there. 4) What to do if there is any problem? Here are some phone numbers that will be handy.
