Dear Bhagavathas,

Sri Ramanuja Mission of Srirangam Srimadh Andavan Ashramam is very much
pleased to announce that you can now make an automatic monthly
contribution towards acharya sambhavanai and for other projects
undertaken by Srimadh Andavan Ashramam, some of which is listed below.
You can do this by authorizing Sri Ramanuja Mission to do an automatic
monthly debit from your bank account for an amount specified by you.

This facility enables you to contribute with ease for propagating Sri.
Ramanuja?s Srivaishnava sampradayam and for sambhavanai for one?s
Acharya. As an acknowledgement of your subscription to this service, we
will send you a  laminated 11 x 14 size photo of prakrutham Andavan HH
Sri Ranga Ramanuja Mahadesikan with manthrakshathai.

Acharya sambhavanai:
With the grace of an Acharya one is sure to reach higher heights in all
his/her endeavors. Although one cannot repay by any means the service
rendered by an acharya to the sishyas, we can do a little by offering a
sambhavanai to the acharya, which is used for various noble kaimkaryam
as commanded by the acharya. Since we are so far away from our acharyas,
we are unable to participate in these physically. Through our
contribution, we will be able to participate at least virtually in all
these kaimkaryams. With this thought in mind, we urge every bhagavatha
to contribute their mite using this monthly contribution facility

Veda Patasala Project: Srimadh Andavan Ashramam is running a Veda
Patasala where a student starts at a tender age of 6 staying at the
patasala and completes the studies in 6 years. Our ashramam requests the
bhagavathas living abroad to sponsor one student for the full period of
6 years. There are currently around 50 vidhyarthis studying in this
patasala and 10 pandits teaching them, and is run in a traditional
gurukulam. It costs only $700 per year per student including the
boarding, lodging and stripend for each student or just around $60 per
month. This is one of the greatest kaimkaryam for our sampradayam as the
knowledge of our rich vedas is preserved and passed on to future
generations with the financial help of a sponsoring bhagavatha.

Azhwar Thirunagari Project: His Holiness Srimadh Andavan swami has
undertaken a project to construct a mani mandapam and an ashramam at
Azhwar Thirunagari which is the birth place of Sri Nammazhvar.  This
projects is estimated to cost around Rs. 20 lakhs (around $40,000)
