Chanting of Divyaprabandham the great devotional pasurams of Alwars and 
Andal will not only please the Lord Srimannarayana but also get rid of all 
the sins committed by us, gives us a lot of boons and blessings as assured 
by Alwars themselves and improve the sanctity and divinity among the 
devotees. Even though it is in Tamil, Divyaprabandhams are the essence of 
"Four Vedas" and is called as "Dravida Vedam".  All devotees irrespective of 
caste and creed have the right to learn, chant, experience and enjoy the 
glory of Divyaprabandham.

All Srivaishnava Acharyas, and Sri Kanchi Paramacharya have enlightened and 
hence  prescribed the chanting of Divyaprabandham as very holy and important 
for all human beings. Many western scholars have found it a great divine 
text and are reading and experiencing the divinity in them.

All devotees are welcome and are requested to participate in the chanting 
and make the holy event a grand and memorable one in their time of living in 
America. There will be an exhibition on Alwars, Andal, Divyaprabandham, 
Divyadesams, and Acharyas. Please bring your children without fail to 
explore the possibilities of better understanding on our Vedic heritage, 
tradition, and culture.

Please note: There are 28 divyaprabandhas and therefore 28 types of 
prasadams will be offered at the beginning of each prabandam and distributed 
to devotees. At the beginning of each prabandham there will be a briefing 
about the prabandham. Devotees can sponsor the prabandham/ prasadams and or 
booth. For details of prasadams, and registration of names for participation 
and or sponsorship, please call the following co-coordinators in your area 
and register your name. Check/draft should be in favor of JET U.S.A. Inc.
