Brahmothsavam Help To Lord Brahadeeswara Temple @ Gangai Konda Chozhapuram

Many Jaya Jaya Sankara to Shri.S. Ravisankar, Annabhisheka Committee member of this grand old temple for the latest updates. Devotees please participate and do the needful for Brahmothsavam. Rama Rama

Brahmothsavam From 20-Feb-18 to 01-Mar-18

By the grace of Ambal Brahannayaki samedha Lord Brahadeeswara, benign blessings of His Holiness Maha Periyava, Sri Matam Periyavas, the Maha Kumbhabhishekam of the Gangai Konda Chozhapuram Ambal Brahannayaki  Sameda Lord Brahadeeswara temple was performed strictly as per Aagama sastras, a year back on  2nd February 2017, nearly after a period of 85 years.  All  bhakthas spread over all different  continents, Sri Kanchi Matam devotees along with local people and elites joined to perform the Maha Kumbhabhishekam.

Every one of us know that Annabhishekam , initiated and instructed by H H Mahaperiava  is performed year after year uninterruptedly from 1985 onwards  in this temple. Many articles covering all these were published at different times in our “Sage of Kanchi”, Kanchi Periyava forum, etc.

Dwajasthambam (Kodimaram) was erected during kumbhabhishekam in this temple nearly after 400 to 450 years . As per Aagama  sastras , it is necessary that Brahmotsavam is to be performed every year for 10 to 12 days to such temples.

Recently Rajatha bhandanam (adoring Peetam of Swamy and Ambal) was  also done to Swamy and Ambal  with approximately 16 kgs of silver before Sammasrabhishekam  was performed. Sammasrabhishekam is to be performed every year for 12 years after which next Maha Kumbhabhishekam is to to be done.

The Brahmotsavam starts with grama (village) Devatha pujas for two days on 18 th and 19 th  February’18,  followed by 10 days Brahmotsavam, Swamy, Ambal and other deities Nagarvalam, on different Vahanas, etc. as per Aagama sastras completed with final day  Thirthavari utsavam.

As of date there is no record to show that  Brahmotsavam  was conducted to this temple, which probably were there centuries ago. Being  such a BIG TEMPLE , dear to the heart of H H Mahaswamy, we are blessed to start as an Angam of dwajas, 10 days brahmothsavam  starting from 20/2/18 with KODIYETRAM  and ending with Theerthavari on 01 st March ‘18.

Annabhishekam committee  and other Sri Kanchi Matam devotee groups also participate with first day and many days  utsavams along with other bhakthas  from different places.

We invite all devotees to participate  physically and probably with valuable contributions at least few days during this festival .  It is our privilege to share all details with you .  In case you require further information please do call any one us ,whose phone numbers and E Mail Id’s are given below.

Let us all make this a great event, a  beautiful “World heritage monument  temple” under UNESCO and HR&CE , identified by our HH Mahaperiava.

Cauvery Pushkaram Update & Next Steps

Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara – An update on Cauvery Puskaram activities from Smt. Mahalakshmi Mami. Next activity planned on April 15 for Loka Kshmam. Let’s support her as much as we can. All details are below. Rama Rama

Dear Devotees,

We are happy to announce the inaugural function of Cauvery puskaram Varuna Japam and other parikara Japam  went off very well 21st. March 2017.  Both Periava’s were kind enough to gave their blessings and Bala periava inaugurated the Varuna Japam at Thiruvaiyaru Cauvery Pushya padi thurai on 21 St March 2017.

Our next Varuna Japam ,  Berjanya Shanthi Japam etc will be held on 15 th April at Kumbakonam Bhagawath Padithurai.  We have invited both  Periyavas and adheenams to grace the occasion.

As you are aware this year Cauvery puskaram starts from Sep 12th to sep 24th and it is called Aadhi puskaram.  30th.Sep to 11th.Oct  2018 Anthima Puskaram.  This puskaram is Maha Pushkaram and we have more benefit if we take bath in the river during that period. Sep 12th guru changes his position from Kannya to Thulam and Thulam to Virichikam.  Cauvery rasi is THULA Rasi  it is planned to celebrate in all the places during that time in Cauvery banks. Since Mayavaram is the only place having THULA Kattam  it is decided to celebrate Cauvery puskaram in a grand manner at Mayavaram.

With the blessings of both Periava’s  Cauvery Pushkaram 2017 Mayiladuthurai charitable Trust is organising Varuna Japam, Barjanya Shanthi japam, and kareeri Ishty at Nerur,  Hogehanekal, Tirichy, and  Mayavaram.

This Guru peyarchi is beneficial for all the rasi’s.  It is said even though this peyarchi is good for Kannya Rasi,  THULA Rasi and Virichikam Rasi  they have to do parikaram. Next, Mesham,  Mithunam, and Meenam  also has to do pariaharam.  Effect Madyamam.

Under the leadership of  Sri. Thyagappa Deekshider from Chidambaram  all Vedic activities are planned. Shri.  Sitaraman Ganapathy Printers Mayavaram and Sri Narayanan  kumbakonam are incharge for all Vedic activities.

It is planned to organise Athirudhara homam at Mayavaram during Pushkaram days.

Our Tamil Nadu Govt. Nagai collector and Ministers are most helpful to us.

Both Periyava’s are inagurating the Cauvery Pushkaram function at Mayavaram on Sep 12th.

Yagam,  homam, Veda parayanam. Thirumarai parayanam. Sahasranamam chanting cultural activity. Theerthavary  (from all temples swamy will come to Cauvery ) Cauvery Aarthi and elaborate Anna Dhanam are also planned.

Swamiji Ramananda President Cauvery Pathukappu Kuzhu is President for Cauveri Pushkaram trust. He used to travel by foot from Thalaicauvery to Poompuhar every year and create awareness among all the people about the importance of Cauvery. Detailed Post will be send about the importance of Kavery Pushkaram later.

Support needed for Brahmasri Krishnan Sastrigal, CA

Our sanatana dharma followers in US would have seen Sastrigal mama in various vedic events like Maharudram across US for the past several years. He had attended Chicago maharudram in 2009 and I have seen mama in various other maharudrams as well…It is very unfortunate that he has been diagnosed with kidney failure and hospitalized for treatment. Folks here in US would know  how expensive it is to get treated in US even if you have insurance. I am not sure about mama’s health insurance situation.

I got this email from someone about a fund-raiser to cover mama’s medical expenses. I am posting it here only for North American readers. If you can contribute even a small amount, it would help mama.

Let us pray our acharyas for mama’s speedy recovery.
