My name is Jaya Tirtha Charan dasa I'm a member of Iskcon since 1973-74,
spent some four years in India, have visited all over the south; Sri
Rangam, Rameshwaram / Dhanushkoti, Melkote, Kumbakonam, Swamimalai,
Mangalgiri, Upper & Lower Ahobalam, Yatgiriguta, Mantralayam, Udupi,
Guruvayur, Madurai, Parthasarathi - Triplicane, Tirumala / Tirupathi,
Trivandrum PadmanabhaSwami, Simhachalam, Vijayanagara (Hampi), etc., and
similarly in the north Kali Gandaki, Vyas Goofa, Saligram tirtha, Dwaraka,
Vrindavan, Mathura, Navadwip, Kurukshetra, Haridwar, Ayodhya, Prayag,
Udaipur, Jaipur, Jagannath Puri, Remuna, Bhubaneshwar, etc., etc. 

With our Gopal Bhatta Goswami coming from Sri Rangam I very much appreciate
the philosophy, rituals, and overall mood of the Sri Vaishnavas, who always
so kindly assisted and welcomed us whenever visiting a temple in the
Dravidadesh, or visiting friends that I've made over the years.

I really appreciate the Bhakti list, and while not contributing much, I
eagerly read all the postings every day.

thank you all.

Chari Vaishnav sampradaya ki jaya
