Dear BhakthAs of AchArya RaamAnujA :

Sri Ramanuja Mission is doing yeoman service
(release of Swamy Desikan's shtothra CD ROMs
and many other kaimkaryams)in supporting many 
Sri Vaishnavite causes dear to Sri Bhagavath 
RaamAnuja SiddhAntham . 

The anchor AchArya Purushan for this great 
Munithraya SampradhAyam is Thirukkudanthi
Desikan .His devotion for Sri KomaLavalli
SamEtha Sri AarAvamudhan is exemplary .
Out of that devotion was born the great 
"Sri AparyApthAmrutha DhyAna ShOpAnam "
modeled after ThiruppANAzhwAr's AmalanAdhipirAn
and Swamy Desikan's own Sri Bhagavath DhyAna
ShOpAnam . 

The rare Sri Sookthi on Lord AarAvamudhan by
HH THirukkudanthai Desikan was given to me by 
Thirukkudanthai Sri Rengarajan , whose uncle is
a descendant of Thirukkudanathai Desikan . 

AdiyEn had the bhAgyam of posting  a series of 
articles on the 13 slOkams of HH Thirukkudanthai
Desikan's auspicious Sri Sookthi in Bhakthi archives
over a time period of October 1997 to May 30, 1999.
May I refer the readers to these postings to
pay reverence to HH Thirukkudanthai Desikan 
on this Thirunakshathram day ? The HayagrIva 
Archai worshipped by HH Thirukkudanthai Desikan
is currently at PoundarIkapuram Aasramam . 
Sri Rengarajan has written (Oct 20, 1997 ) 
archives about this venerable ArchA Moorthy 
and his family connections to Thirukkudanthai
Desikan .

Here are the references in the Bhakthi List 
on the postings on Sri AparyApthaamrutha 
dhyAna shOpAnam of HH Thirukkudanthai Desikan
for those , who wish to browse the Bhakthi archives :

1. Introductory Articles : Part 1&2
   ( October 19, Nov 25, 97) & SlOkam 1

2. SlOkam 2: ( Jan 22, 98)

3. SlOkam 3: ( Jan 29, 98) 

The many delectable anubhavams of HH Thirukkudanthai
Desikan are covered in later posts during 1998-99
and concludes with the final posting on the 12th and 
13th slOkams that appeared on May 30, 1999.
