Sri Venkata Gurave Nama:
Srimathe Ramanujaya Nama:

Respected Members Of Bakthi list,

I am  a member in our  bakthi list since 19 months. I am learning more and
more out of this association
which has to its  credit well informed and well learnt scholars our great

in the coming weeks, i would like to share with our members one of the
important rahasyas of our sampradayam, an excellent work of  Swami Pillai
Lokachar, called " Mummookshapadi".

Our Bakthi group has renowed members who have in-depth knowledge in our
If at all I venture in to a deep and serious rahasya grantham like
Mummookshapadi", it is due to thir presence and confidence that i shall be
corrected and guided in the whole process.

I invoke the blessings my Svacharyan, Paramapadavasi. Sri.Kumara
Venkatachar Swamy(sri.Mudaliyandan) and prostrate at all your feet
requesting you to guide me and correct me in the whole process.

As a lowly self, i shall limit myself to free translations of the original
work and those whatever i could retain from
Anubhavams of our elders. It is Emperuman's ThiruUllam that He always
places me in association of his sweet Baghavatas
in spite of many disqualifications.

I am also  planning to use freely explantions given by vaikundavasi Sri.
T.S.Rajagoplan (retd, Head master, Hindu High school, Triplicane) in his
book on Mumookshapadi.

Should there be any mistakes in my postings, it has to be misconceptions
from my end. I am sure i will be corrected by you.

At this juncture, I would like to Thank Sriman.Mani, Sriman.Sadagopan and
our "Dearest" Madavakannan swamy whose presence has  inspired me to venture
in to a work like this.

I seek the blessings of all our members for this endeavor.
