Dear Bhaktas,

I have recently learned that ``The Way and the Goal,''
Prof. Vasudha Narayanan's book on early Sri Vaishnava
bhakti, is being republished and is available for
purchase.  This was one of the first books that I
ran across in the UC Berkeley library on Sri Vaishnavism,
and I must say I found it very enlightening. There
are presentations and discussions of the works 
of Yamunacharya, Ramanuja, Kuratthalvan, Parasara Bhattar,

Those who are interested can contact South Asia books
at (573) 474-0116.  The price should be about $16 including
shipping, but I am not sure.
