SrI sri lakshmi narasimha parabrahmane namaha: Dear devotees of sriman Narayana, namo narayana. adiyen's pranamams. adiyen had been to india and the trip to the mother land after a gap of three years was very refreshing and it was indeed memorable. adiyen was fortunate to visit various divya desams esp in and around chennai. Most importantly, adiyen, adiyen's wife, little daughter and aged parents were performed prapatti at the holy feet of Srimad azhagiya singer at Thiruvahendrapuram where HH is camping for chatur masyam. We excluding adiyen's parents also underwent samasrayanam. Srimad Azhagiya singer gave upadesam for more than forty minutes explaning the glories of prapatti with lot of lowkeka examples and this day is the most happiest day in adiyen's life. Sri Anand's father Sri K G Krishnan has provided all the help that is required and he was kind enough to accompany us to Thiruvahendrapuram and introduce to Srimad azhagiya singer. No words can express our gratitude for all their help. Finally, it is this email satsangh that has helped adiyen to understand the glories of our srivaishnava sampradayam and guided us to perform prapatti. Although born as a srivaishnava adiyen was ignorant of our sampradayam, and without the scholarly articles in net by by various regular contributors adiyen would not have known about prapatti. Special mention is required about sri Anand for patiently clarifying adiyen's doubts privately and his samasrayanam article was the eye opener. As prapannas we have visited Tirupathi, Kumbakonam,oppiliappan koil, Thiruvallur, Thirunindravur,Thiruneermalai and other divya desams in and around chennai. Although adiyen had been to most of the temples earlier, but this time the experience was different. We have throughly enjoyed the perumal and having darshan of perumal with a thought of azhvar's/acharya's anubhavam makes all the difference. Thanks for your patient reading. This innovative form of email satsangh is very effective and let it long live and guide the ignorant souls to became prapannas to do eternal kaimkaryam to sriman Narayana at srivaikuntam.
