Jai Srimannarayana!

 

Dear Andal Goshti Hosts,

 

This month is Dhanurmasam/ Margazhi month. It is a very auspicious month. This year like previous years, with blessings of HH Sri Sri Sri Tridandi Srimannarayana Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji, Sri Ashtalakshmi Temple is giving us a unique opportunity to host Sri Andal Goshti at your home.

 

Our Acharya Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji is preaching the importance of Tiruppavai all over India. People in thousands are attending when Sri Swamji chant one Pasuram (Song) a day in his distinct style and repeat after him, thus making all places as Nanda Gokulam. By hosting this event, we are also contributing to Sri Swamiji's overall mission in increasing awareness of Tiruppavai.

 

For this Goshti it is important to invite as many guests as you can to the Goshti and facilitate participation in this event to increase awareness.
