Dear lord,

A lot of time has passed since I have written to you on the cyberspace. But in this time adiyen has only grown in love for You. Is it ever enough to love You as much as I do today? No, I need to grow my bhakti even more. At the same time is it even possible to love You as much as the Azhwars did… is it achievable? I do not know. But life in this Bhuloka is definitely worth living if adiyen keeps trying, and growing in affection for you… oh lord Krishna!

I have missed out on individual posts on special events in the past month.

Jai Ram, Seeta Ram! Sri Rama Navami happened on the 12th of April for the year 2011. Oh lord Ram, You are the ultimate truth and a guiding force for all of humanity. I cannot imagine anyone to have an exemplary personality, than an avatara of Your own self – perhaps as seen in Sri Kuresa. Ram naam satya hai!

Sri Rama Navami 2011

Rama Lakshmana Janaki, Jai Bolo Hanuman ki!

Another event was Tamizh Putthaandu/Varsha Pirappu on the Chithirai Day, which occurred on the 14th of April – marking the beginning of the ‘Khara’ year. Subsequent to that was the birthday of Madhurakavi Azhwar on the 18th. I am mighty thrilled that adiyen shares the nakshatram (Chitrai) of this azhwar! As devoted as the Azhwar was to Nammazhwar, adiyen shall strive to be of service to all the Azhwars and Acharyas. And of course. anyone in need of help in this Bhuloka. Service to the devotees is afterall service to the lord Himself!

There was Varaha Jayanthi this weekend, on the 30th of April. It marked the birth of an avatara of Vishnu due to which Bhumi Devi was saved from being submerged. And of course, I am waiting with bated breath for the nakshatram birthday of my favourite, supreme, mahaan.. Bhagavad Ramanuja! Emperumaanar Thirunakshatram (Chitrai month, Thiruvadirai Nakshatram) for the year 2011 falls on May 7th. Adiyen hopes to be able to do justice for the day.

Narayana, Sriman Narayana… forever at your service, forever longing to be united.

Adiyen Ramanuja Dasyai
