Dear BhakthAs :

This wonderful Kaimkaryam by Srimaan MadhavakkaNNan
is racing towards its finishline. Through the weeks 
and Months , we have been blessed to reflect upon 
the depth of meaning and the anubhava sukham of 
Our Kulapathi NammAzhwAr's Thiruvaimozhi. As NammAzhwAr
in his aarthi calls the Lord to give Baahya SamslEsham in 
His Sri Vaikuntam , the Lord is rushing forward to
unite with him .The  complexities of emotion that NammAzhwAr
goes through are a treasure house of the experiences of
the soul in its journey towards the safe harobor of 
Sri Vaikuntam celebrated in the third and the fourth 
sections of the Fourth Chapter of Brahma Sutrams of
Sage BadarAyaNA for which Bhagavadh RaamAnujA wrote
the commentary int he form of Sri BhAshyam . 

The essence of this final decad teaches us that 
our Lord is the truly tested Sadhgathi , KlEsachith
( One who destroys all anxieties ) , Bhajathbhi: SuprApan 
( One who is ease of access through Bhakthi) , 
Vividha Bhajana prakriyan ( One who gives us 
many ways to practise Bhakthi towards Him ) , 
SdhsaraNi ( the auspicious ladder to Parama Padham
via archirAdhi Maargam ) and finally Apunar janm
Saayujyan ( One who blesses us with Moksham so
that we never go through the cycles of Birth and 
death cycles ) .These are the conclusions of 
Swami Desikan in His DramiDopanishadh Saaram .

This four week period is indeed an auspicious period 
consisting of :

Navarathri Beginning ( Sep 21 )
Srimadh Adhi VaNN SatakOpa Jeeyar's birth day (Sep 27)
Srimadh Thirukkudanthai Desikan's Birth day ( September 29)
Hayagriava Manthra Japam ( Sep 30)/Sarasvathi Poojai
Swami Desikan's 730th birthday ( October 1)
DipAvaLi ( October 19) 

The Thiruvaimozhi Kaimkaryam will get completed during this
period  with the Divya Dampathi's blessing by 
Sri MadhavaKKaNNan.

I will join in this last lap of this race to join
in this mahA Kaimkaryam .May our SaraNya dampathis bless
Sri MadhavakkaNNan and all the BhakthAs with
every souubhAgyam .
