Dear Sri Krshna,

                 Can you please e-mail to me the contact address / phone
number of Sri yajna-nArAyaNa dIkshitar at Dallas?

                 Sri Krishna Premi has long since settled down in
Srirangam and continues with his very sensitive 'upanyAsa-kAinkaryam'
(service through discourses) for the 'sampradAyam'.   The following
address should do, to contact him:

Sri Krishna Premi, North Chitra Street, SRIRANGAM-620006 (Tamil Nadu).
