Dear Members:

The Bhagavath AaarAdhana Kramam and the Manthrams
for the different stages of AarAdhanam for the Lord 
are housed in the AchArya RaamAnuja Multimedia CD ROM
with the appropriate manthrams and sanskrit pronunciations.

You are welcome to access the information there.
Thirumanjanam for AchArya RaamAnujA at His shrine
in ThirunArAyaNapuram as well as the descriptions 
of the nine SrI Sookthis of AchArya RaamAnujA are
also archived in this interactive CD ROM.
