Dear BhakthAs:

It is with great happines adiyEn reports back to you 
about the celebrations of Swamy Desikan Thirunakshathram 
at ThiruvahIndhrapuram yesterday .

A large group of Veda PaarAyaNa GhOshti , Dhivya Prabhandha 
GhOshti participated.Sri Krishna Premi Swamy attended from
what I could gather from a participant.

Swamy Desikan's SthOthra Granthams and Prabhandhams were recited 
in front of Swamy Desikan . 

Swamy Desikan ascended Oushadha Giri for MangaLAsAsanam of
Lord  HayagrIvan in great haste(Dwarai) and returned from 
there to the Sannidhis of Lord DevanAthan and HemAbhja Valli 
ThAyar (Taranga Mukha Nandini) to offer His mangaLAsAsanam.

At that time , the Specially prepared NavamaNi Maalai
and MummaNikkOvai were presented by Swamy Desikan's 
hand to the dhivya Dampathis with the accompaniment of 
MangaLa Vaadhyams.

Lord DevanAthan thru His archakar took the Nava Mani maalai 
from His neck and let it shine on the neck of His dear Child , 
Swamy Desikan for the rest of the day as His MaryAdhai.

There were a large number of BhakthAs assembled from
far and near . Next , Swamy Deikan blessed the central
Ruby stone for the RathNaangi Kaimkaryam for Lord
DevanAthan for whom he composed Achyutha Sathakam , 
DevanAtha PanchAsath , NavamaNi Maalai, MUmmaNikkovai
and other Sri Sookthis at ThiruvahIndhrapuram. The Ruby
stone is back at Chennai now to initiate the RathnAngi 
Kaimkaryam now. 

Video and Photos were taken of the celebrations.
adiyEn will place selected images on the net as
soon as I recieve them here.

Sri Desika MukOllAsa SabhA and GodhA Sahasram Committee
of Chennai is grateful to all the BhakthAs , who contributed
towards this Kaimakryam along with the ThridhaNDa samarpaNam 
earlier in the Month at SriperumbhUdhUr.

The RathnAngi Design will be completed in two to three 
weeks and the estimate of cost for that Kaimakryam will
become known by then. It will take us a while to complete
that major Kaimkaryam . With the dhivya dampathi's blessings 
and Swamy Desikan's anugraham , the two sabhAs with the help 
of the participating BhakthAs of Swamy Desikan all 
over the world  , we hope to complete this Kaimkaryam 
before the next Thirunakshathram for Swamy Desikan .

May all the BhakthAs , BhAgavathAs and Mahaans
bless the final stage of this Kaimkaryam (MahAnthO

Please let me know of your interest in participation
in this MahA kaimkaryam .Pleas ejoin in and recieve
the Dhivya Dampathi's blessings .

DaasOham ,
Oppiliappan Koil VaradAchAri SatakOpan
