Dear BhakthAs :

It is my great bhAgyam to let you all know
that adiyEn has now received THE FINAL version 
of the AchArya RaamAnujA CD ROM here from
India . Today marks the end of all these days of trials , 
tribulations and soul searchings on how to bring 
closure for this most important project .

AdiyEn wants to take this opportunity to thank 
all the BhagavathAs , who have supported this
Kaimkaryam as well as those , who reviewed earlier
versions of this pioneering CD ROM aimed at spreading
the message of Bhagavath RaamAnuja darsanam . 

There were many problems in coordinating  
a project of this magnitude and complexity 
from here including cost over runs, due to the stop 
and go nature of this project overseen by volunteers
like adiyEn . We have learnt  a lot in the process. 
The bottom line is that we have in our hands 
an excellent CD ROM with a rich assembly of materials 
that would enrich the homes of Sri VaishNavA families . 

This interactive  Multimedia CD ROM has copious
images on the Life and the nine Sri Sookthis of
AchArya RaamAnujA as well as audio texts ,anugraha BhAshaNam 
of a revered  AchAryan , Sri NaarAyaNa Yathindhra 
MahA Desikan , the Thirumanjanam video of
the Archai ThirumEni of AchArya RaamAnujA at
ThirunAraayaNapuram , Quizzes (50 Q&A ) for
the Young people , life history of AchArya
RaamAnujA and a hyperlink to the Ahobila matam 
'home pages for one to hear the authentic SaatthumuRai
at the Sri Matam and enjoy the rich content of
Ahobila matam home pages . The various steps in Bhagavath
AarAdhanam has been clearly explained in a step by 
step fashion . There is a treasure trove of information
assembled in this CD ROM after the final fixes 
completed since the beginning of this month.

We have now seen the light at " the end of the tunnel".
The project is complete and it is being placed now
with reverence at the sacred feet of AchArya RaamAnujA 
today .

AdiyEn's next duty  is to replicate this CD ROM 
and send it first to all those BhakthAs , who
have placed faith in our efforts and stood by 
patiently for the many revisions to be completed .
It is anticipated that some of the reproduction effort 
will be done at Singapur and the rest here .I will 
keep you posted on the progress and it is my fondest 
hope that all these remaining matters can be settled 
in the next two to three weeks so that you can receive 
the copies that you have been anxiously waiting for 
before too long .

Prior to concluding this happy news posting , 
let me place on record adiyEn's sincere thanks for
the most significant help received from the officials 
of Ahobila Matam North America at different stages of 
this project .
Namo NaarAyaNA !
