Dear BhakthAs :

Yesterday was AvaNI hastham , the birth day
of one of the greatest yathisvarALs , who
sat on the throne of AhObila Mata Peetam 
as the 44th SthAnAdhoathi Of Sri matam .

He is the great AchAryA , who built the southern
Gopuram for Sri RanganAthA .His parent's name in
this world was Sri RanganAthan and Srimathi RanganAyaki.
He performed the loftiest Kaimkaryam to Sriranga
Divya Dampathis , Sri RanganAyaki SamEtha Sri RanganAthan 
at a ripe age as Kaimkaryam by a vayOvruddhar 
to another vayOvruddhar . His unlimited mercy 
and dayA are well documented . At our house in 
ThiruviNNagar, our family had the great BhAgyam 
of receiving his Ponnadi , when he stayed twice 
for a few days .It is my great bhAgyam to dedicate 
a small samashti Kruthi in Raagam Hamsadhvani for 
this Parama hamsa MahA Purushar , a Vaazhi ThirunAmam and
Vandhanam . May this Sri Vaikunta Vaasi continue to bless
us all for all times to come !

AdiyEn places at the sacred feet of this
Azhagiya Singar my humble salutations .
AdiyEn will have another posting to cover
the meanings of these salutations .
