Dear Friends, Saturday September 13 is Ekadashi and Sunday Sept 14th is Sravana Dwadasi and the fast is supposed to be broken on Monday morning September 15th. A two day fast is difficult under the best of circumstances and certainly not easy in this country. However since hardly anyone observes a total fast, a two day abstinence from rice and abstinence from salt on the dwadasi day is recommended. Sriman Sadagopan or Sampath Rengarajan maybe able to highlight the speciality of a Sravana Dwadasi vratam and the relationship of this vratam to Oppaliappan Perumal. Srimate Srivan Satakopa Sri Vedanta Desika Yateendra Mahadesikaya Namah: Srimate Sri Lakshmi Nrsimha Divya Paduka Sevaka Srivan Satakopa Sri Narayana Yateendra Mahadesikaya Namah: Jaganath.
