Blessings from the great guru Adayar K Lakshman sir for his disciple young Ananda on Ananda's mridungam arangetram in 1987.
Dr.Ananda says, "The blessings of my Bharatanatyam and Nattuvangam Guru Padmashri Adyar K Lakshman Sir on my mridungam arangetram in 1987. This letter has spurred me on to do my best at all times and is a classic example of how a guru can mold the sishya to become themselves. Such generosity of spirit and sharing of love is unparalleled and one of the reasons why Lakshman Sir is a role model and a manifestation of the divine to me and so many others around the world. May i always be worthy of your blessings sir."
