I must say since my move to the Sri Vaishnava Sampradaya, I thought I might have to roll with the punches, wait and wait and then prolly not found what I was looking for, as with the Ramanandi's. While trying to break into the Ramanandi Sampradaya, I met some really great people and quite blessed to know them.
My post today though is to say the people at HH Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji's JET are bloody amazing! I am moving from Seattle to Indiana for work and stopping in Chicago on my way to receive Samasrayanam with Swamiji. I have been afraid that due to my economic situation that I could not do this. Hotel rooms and the like are expensive and would be in a town where I would not have transportation nor know how to get there if I had. They have been working with me including helping me with setting up lodging and a way to the events. I am blown away at their hospitality and good will towards this ol' avarnic mleccha dog-eatter ;)
I strongly urge anyone with a leaning toward Ramanuja's Sri Sampradaya to come to this group with me. I am amazed at how open, warm and welcoming they have been. Whether I am talking to representatives of JET from NJ, DC or Il. they are all brilliant.
Well in a month I will have my panchasamskarams and this blog will certainly a lot more interesting I assure you, and I hope to have pics as well. Until then please bear with me as I get moved.
