Message from Tamil Raligious magazine ' Vainavan Kural "

Sreemathe RangaRamanuja Mahadesikaya Namaha

Members are aware that the Tamil religiuos magazine " Sri Vainavan Kural " is devoted to bring all world vaishnavites under one umbrella. This magazine started with the blessings of all of Ramanuja Sampradaya Acharyas a few years back is doing a great service through their monthly Tamil Magazine.

 They are now engaged in a project in bringing out a book on Tamil Vyakyaanam of 1102 Tiruvoimozhi verses of SRi Nammalzhwar, earlier written by Sri Dewan Bahadur V K Ramanujacharya who is a prominent disciple of Srimath Therazhundur Andavan.

 An appeal made by the publisher in this regard is attached with this. A similar request was made by them earlier several months back and a few of our members have already taken action to support the publication.

 In a speech on the occasion of Tirukkudantha Andavan's 106th Tirunakshtram, H.H has made a special appeal to the devotees to extend finacial support, as the total cost for bringing out the two volume, 1600 pages of work, comes out to Rs. 15 lakhs.

 H.H. has made an endorsement on their appeal also, which you can see at the bottom of the attachment. Please also read the speech of H.H. delivered on this subject on Tirukkudanthai Andavan's Tirunakshtram, wt which time H H has strongly made an appeal to the devotees to support the project.

 Both Sri Oppiliappan Sadagopan and Sri Anbil Ramaswamy have appreciated this effort of the brothers Sri KalyanaRaman and Sri Rangarajan.

 The members can also support in booking pre publication offer of this two volume book at Rs 2000 per set, which itself will be a great support.

 The books are scheduled to be released on 76th Tirunakshtram of Prakirtham Srimushnam Andavan on 24th May, 2012

        Srimath Andavan at Tiruvaheendrapuram
                               Sreemathe RangaRamanuja Mahadesikaya Namaha

Tiruvaheendrapuram Sri Devanatha Perumal Koil Mahasamprokshanam was performed on 25th April, as scheduled already. Our Acharyan Srimad Andavan could not do Mangalasaasanam on that day, due to heavy rush of pilgrims. This was scheduled yesterday, but it did not happen , as some local issues are still to be sorted out.

H. H. made a visit to nearby place Sornavur, the native village of Sri Upendra Reddiar, our Ashramam devotee as well as President of Sri Paduka Charities.

Due to different issues, H.H. visit to Velamur and Kanchipuram are postponed to a later date.

I got the news that H H will be leaving Tiruvaheendrapuram on Sunday morning, proceed to Madyaranagam via Tirukkoilur and  visit Aviyur, then return to Chennai Ashramam late in the evening.

I will be posting again , if there are any more changes in the programme.

H.H.Sri RangaRamanuja Mahadesikan is now on a visit to Tiruvaheendrapuram, hwere we have an Ashramam as well as a Veda patasalai. He will be attending Mahasamprokshanam of Sri Devanathaswamy Temple scheduled on 25th April,2012.
On completion of Mahasamprokshanam, H.H is scheduled to visit Velamur, a place which is very close to His heart being the place from where He went on to take Sanyasa Ashramam at Srirangam.All of you are aware that through our Achryan's initiative, a 3 tier Rajagopuram has come for the Temple there, besides renovated Sannathi of the famous Velamur Acharyan, Upanishad Bhashyakarar Sri RangaRamanuja Mahadesikan, whose name He is now adorning.
Being the place, where Sama Vedam flourished in those days, H.H. took the initiative to build a Sama Veda Patasalai at Velamur. This has come up at a site adjacent to the TEmple,and Grihapraves Vastu Homam is planned to be held on 26th April, 2012. After that H.H. will be performing Aradanams on that day as well as 27th April. From Velamur camp, it is likely that he will make flying visit to Kanchipuram Ashramam, where the old buildings are getting renovated, along with Perumal and Therazhundur Andavan Brindavanam. Adjacent to this an Ashramam cum Patasalai complex has come up replacing an old tiled structure.
Most probably H.H. will be back in Chennia on 27th evening. But , I will give an update subsequently. If any of Ashramam sishya, who is travelling to these places around this time,is welcome to post mails to our group members, if any change in programme is happening

Video links for Tirunakshtram function of Srimath Tirukkudanthai Andavan

Sreemathe RangaRamanuja Mahadesikaya Namaha
Please find the youtube video links for the 106th Tirunakshtra function of Srimath Tirukkudanthai Andavan held at Chennai Ashramam. These links have already appeared in the yahoogroups mails. I have now consolidated all the links, so that you can store and access whenever you have time to watch.

The credit for all these goes to our Ashramam devotee and yahoo group member Sri Ramesh Ramanujam, who has flown all the way from Dubai with all his latest gadgets and had all the patience to be in front of the function area to cover the whole event. Not only this, but taken all efforts to put them in a movie format in youtube, for the benefit of all of us. Another good news is that he is planning to do a similar exercise for the forthcoming Vaikasi Tiruvadirai Tirunakshtarm fiunction of Prakirtham Andavan also. All our fellow group members must be thankful to him for this service .
