Dear Srimathi Gita:

Dr. Vasudha Narayanan , Professor of Religion 
at U.Florida is at Gainesville. She could help you
gain knowledge about the meanings of the Gadhyams.
SrI Madhavakkannan of Singapore has also posted excellent
articles on the three gadhyams. You can access them at
Bhakthi archives and SrIman Elayavalli's extensive home pages. 

Please do not hesitate to recite the Gadhyams .
It s perfectly fine , since SaraNAgathi anushtAnam 
is not exclusive for men or varNam or Aasramam.

We released a Multimedia CD ROM on AchArya RaamAnujA 
few months back. That also contains excerpts on the three
gadhyams in addition to the other 6 SrISookthis of AchArya
RaamAnujA as well as his vaibhavam .
