Dear Bhagavathas,

namo nArArayaNaa. adiyen's pranamams.

adiyen is pleased to inform all of you that our Bahrain Srivaishnava
goshti will be celebarating Thiruvenkadamudaiyan and Swami Desikan
thirunakshatram few hours from now at adiyen's residence.Every bhagavata
is eagerly looking forward for a wonderful evening and we are planning
to recite Hayagreeva stotram,Daya sathakam,Bhagavad dyana sopanam,
nyasa dasakam,Sristuti and Sudarshanashtakam from desikar stotras
and adaikkalappaththu and pillai andhadhi from desika prabandham and
Ozhivil kaalamellam and ulagam uNda peruvaaya from Thiruvaymozhi from
Azhvar's srisukthis.

Most of you are now aware that we are maintaining a Web page that updates
the bhagavathas around the globe about our srivaishnava activities in
Bahrain. We have announced about the site on this year's thiruvadipporam
day and that time the site was not fully completed.

Now we have updated the site for swami desikan's thirunakshatram and
you may like to have a look at the improved version at

We have also included divya prabandham in devanagari script and hope this
will be of use to those who can't read tamil script. Our experience is
that devanagari script is better than english script and please
let me know whether this kaimkaryam is of use to bhagavathas. adiyen has
provided all nityanusandhanam in devanagari at this time.

Similarly the tamil version of desikar stotrams are with consonants
marked with a subscript number 2,3 or 4 along with the tamil letter,
since tamil doesn't have ka,kha,ga and gha etc.. Of late we are
using this tamil version in our satsanghs and it helps to improve the
pronounciation. adiyen would appreciate your feed back and comments.

adiyen has included a FAQ section trying to answer Frequently asked
questions on our sampradayam in a simple way with help of bhagavathas
who has learned sampradaya granthams in a traditional way from our
acharyas.If you have a question please feel free to email me and adiyen
will try include them in FAQ section.

adiyen is happy to say here that the response is good for adiyen's
humble attempt and we have 900 plus visits in the past 3 months.
Please let me have your invaluable comments to serve you better with
the blessings of sriya:pathi and Acharyas.

Srimad Azhagiya singar thiruvadigale saranam.


adiyen dasan,

Venkataraghava dasan
