Dear Bhagavad bhandu's,
I am called Ravi and I am from a Andhra Srivaishnava family originally from Korukonda agraharam(near Rajahmundry in AP). I was an active participant in the activities of H.H Sri Sri Sri Tridandi chinna Jeeyar swami and learned whatever I could during my 12 years of participation. I am currently working in chicago as a Software Consultant and might have seen some of our esteemed bhagavatha's at Aurora temple. During my close association with H.H Tridandi Jeeyar swami, the amazing thing I have seen is his will to revive the Srivaishnava tradition that had a predominant spell in Andhra along side shaivism during and after Bhagavad Ramanuja's period. The way he succeded and the Charisma and respect that he has in Andhra, Tamilnadu and other states is NABHOOTO NABHAVISHYATI. His Holiness strongly beleives and true to the fact that We Srivaishnava's (Thenkali& Vadagalai) should unite in spirit and strength to propagate Srivaishnavism for the good of all the four types of creations, for we are the children of the DIVYA DAMPTHY. If you need any more information that I can provide please send mail.
