Dear Bhagavatas

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Swami Desika Darsana Satsangam and the 
Editorial Board of "SaraNAgathi" Electronic journal, I wish you all a very 
happy DeepavaLi.

May the festival of lights --  light and delight our hearts, homes, families, 
friends, the great and growing Srivaishnava community and indeed the entire 
Universe we live in!

SarvE janA: SukhinO Bhavanthu

Let us nurture the spirit of mutual respect and understanding.

Let us live up to the RAmAmuja DivyAgnaa -
"Sriman Sriranga Sriyam anubadravAm anudinam samvadhaya"

Let us celebrate the "SamprOKshaNam" of "BhoolOka VaikunTam" at Pomona, New 

Let us vow to do whatever is in our power to make the world a better, more 
peaceful and happy place to live in -- in the new millennium than ever before.

The new millennium is beginning with a bang, what with the MadurAntakam 
SwAmi's Tirunakshatram to be celebrated under the direction and guidance of 
our AchArya SArvabhouman, Yathivarishta H.H. ParavAkkottai Sri GOpAla DEsika 
MahA DEsikan SwAmi of PounDarikapuram Ashramam, Srirangam - vide the 
announcement of Sri Sudarsan Parthasarathy. I join him in appealing to every 
one of you to contribute liberally for the celebrations.

May I also request that all Sishyas, AbhimAnis and well wishers of this great
AchAryan, His Holiness ParavAkkOttai Sri GOpAla Desika MahA DEsikan SWAmi to 
come together in a concerted effort RIGHT FROM NOW ON to arrange for the 
celebration of his "SathApdhi" coming up in March-2001 on a grand and fitting 

Please feel free to send any suggestions on how best we could organize this. 
Of course, the actual implementation will be after obtaining the seal of 
approval and acceptance by His Holiness.
