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.

Support Needed-Athi Rudra Sahasra Chandi Maha Yajnam @ Bilaspur

athi-rudram
Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara – Dear All – There are so many chapters in Deivathin Kural where Sri Periyava has talked about the significance of performing Yagnas. Especially, the one’s like this, “Athi Rudra Sahasra Chandi Maha Yajnam” purely performed for lokha kshemam and attaining Moksha. This “Athi Rudra Sahasra Chandi Maha Yajnam”  has been organized by Pujyasri Bilaspur Swamigal with the blessings of Sri Matam and our Periyava’s. The ‘Athi Rudram’ event is happening right now but they are tight on funds and need our help and support. Hence this request. Please see below the invitation (in both Tamizh and English) on what their requirements are. PLEASE NOTE – This Yajnam ends in another week or so (Jan 26) so what whatever we can contribute let’s do so right-away.

While we all should pitch in and help, I humbly request Periyava devotees who have not contributed so far for this kainkaryams to consider helping here.  The account details are provided below the invitation. Ram Ram

ஸகல லோகத்துக்கும் பலனை உத்தேசித்துத்தான் இங்கே நம் தேசத்தில் வைதிக கர்மா செய்வது. ஹ்ருதயத்திலிருந்து ரத்தம் சரீரம் பூராவுக்கும் பாய்கிற மாதிரி இங்கே செய்யும் வைதிக அநுஷ்டானங்கள் லோகம் முழுதற்கும் க்ஷேமங்களைப் பாய்ச்சிவிடும். அதாவது வேதம் இருந்தால்தான் லோகமே நன்றாக இருக்கும்; லோக க்ஷேமமே இங்கே நம்முடைய தேசத்தில் செய்கிற வைதிகமான யஜ்ஞ கர்மானுஷ்டானாதிகளில்தான் இருக்கிறது. அதைப் பற்றிக் கொஞ்சங்கூட ஸந்தேஹப்பட வேண்டாம். அப்படி லோகத்தையே வாழ்விப்பது யஜ்ஞம்; வேள்வி என்பது. அதற்கு இரண்டு அவசியமானவை. ஒன்று யஜ்ஞம் பண்ணுகிற கர்த்தாவான ‘யஜமானன்’. இன்னொன்று யஜ்ஞத்தில் உபயோகமாகிற அதி முக்யமான த்ரவ்யங்களைத் தருகிற கோதான். – ஜகத்குரு ஸ்ரீ   சந்திரசேகரேந்திர ஸரஸ்வதி ஸ்வாமிகளின் அருள்மொழிகள்

Vedhas are recited only in our country and only if Vedha karmas are performed here in Bharatha Desam, which is the Karma Bhumi, they are fruitful. But the fruit is not only for this country. We do Vaidheeka karmas here keeping in mind the welfare of the entire world. Just as the blood flows from the heart to all parts of the body, the Vaidheeka anushtanas we observe here bestows welfare on the whole world. In other words, the world will be there only if the Vedhas are there. The welfare of the world depends on the Yajnas and other Vaidheeka karmas done here. There need be no doubt about it. Yajnas give life to the whole world. Two things are very necessary for the same. One is the person who performs the Yajnam (kartha) and the other is the cow that gives the important materials to be used in the Yajna. – Jagadguru Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswathi Swamigal

Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara,

Couple of weeks back we posted about this historic majestic temple Maha Kumbabishekam on Feb 02. This temple was built by the famous Chozha King Sri Rajendra Chozha more than 1000 years back. In this great Kshethram Maha Periyava initiated Annabishekam to Lord Brahadeeswara along with Mettur Swamigal 32 years back. It is now after 85 years Maha Kumbabhishekam is planned to be held on Feb 2. 2017

**The Annabhishekam committee finds it  difficult to generate required funds, just 14 days away for Kumbhabhishekam.  The support  and participation of all our Bhakthas and Periyava devotees will definitely see the function is well  done  in dharmic, agama sastra way dear to our Maha Periyava and our Aacharyas.**

As the Maha Kumbhabhishekam  is carried out after nearly 85 years, the Yagasala pujas are performed over 8 kaalams (4 days) commencing prior to Kumbhabhishekam with 51 kundams,19 Vedikais, 85 Sivacharyas, 20 Vedic pundits from all Vedas apart from 20 best Othuvars to chant Devaram, Thiruvachakam, Thirumurai, etc. The expected Bhakthas  to visit are about  25,000 everyday and 1 Lakh on Kumbhabhishekam day.

Please treat this appeal as a “Priority”. Let us all join hands and contribute our mite for this Maha Kshethram Kumbabishekan where Annabishekam was initiated by Maha Periyava.Interested Periyava devotees please transfer funds to the following Bank A/C and drop a note to Shri Ravisankar, Annabisheka Committee member.  (nivartyravi@gmail.com)

A Colossus Maha Kumbabhishekam-Lord Brahadeeswara temple at Gangaikonda Chozhapuram on Feb 02 2017

annabhiskam-1

Ram Ram,

For all Sage of Kanchi devotees this is a MASSIVE opportunity to participate in one of the lifetime Maha Kumbabhishekam’s.  We had already posted about this great Kshethram and Maha Periyava initiating the grand “Annabhishekam to Lord Shiva” few decades back. Click HERE to read those articles. Below are the key points. Let’s join hands and participate in the great Sathkarma as much as we can.

Annabhishekam was started about 32 years ago by the initiation of Kanchi Maha Swamy with guidance and physical presence of Mettur Sri. Rajagopal (later Shri Mettur Swamigal ) and a group of committee members.    In spite of best efforts, cooking even 100 bags of rice, the Lingam portion was not getting covered as, this portion is more than 6 feet height.

Kanchi Kamokotipeeta Annabhishekam committee is blessed to undertake the Kumbhabhishekam works of  Lord Brahadeeswara temple at Gangaikonda Cholapuram ,in Tamilnadu Ariyaloor district.  The  proposed  date is  on 2 nd February 2017 .

It’s a world famous  1000 years old living monument with Nithya Agama Puja . This temple is under ASI and one of the  UNESCO monuments. HR&CE is managing the temple, pujas, etc.

We had many articles  in our Sage of Kanchi earlier about how Kanchi Mahaswamy initiated  and instructed to perform Annabhishekam  every year on Aippasi Pournami day to Lord Brahadeeswara in this temple in 1984.

It is 32 years now we continue and GKC Annabhishekam is a world famous festival .
We invite all Kanchi Kamakoti Peeta and other bhakthas to participate in a big way in whatever capacity they can .

As per HH Mahaswamy saying “Even a brick is your contribution in a temple Kumbhabhishekam all our pithrus , this generation present and  future are liberated . The satisfaction we obtain in this holy task has no bounds with lot of prosperity”.

The Maha Kumbabhishekam invitation is below.  In case any one requires English translation it can be sent E mail.

Thirueragaram Unnathapuriswarar Temple Kumbabishekam on 19th Jan 2017.

thiruegaram-1

Show your support as much as you can by participating in this kumbabishekam and also by contributing whatever you can. These are ancient temples that need our support.

Brief Key Points about this Kshethram

We are happy to announce our next kumbabishekam on 19th January 2016 at Thirueragaram Sathiram, Thirueragaram, Moopaakoil (via), near Kumbakonam. There is a belief that Lord Murugan goes to Swamimalai from here. Great Saint Arunagiri Nathar also mentioned Swamimalai as Thirueragaram.

Here Lord Siva was in the hut serounded by paddy field for a very long time with out name. Once upon a time there was a big temple existing here (few remains were there now).

With the great help of villagers and Mrs. Kalyani Sridhar of Pune the temple has been built and Maha Kumbabishekam is fixed on 19th. Jan 2016. We need sponsors for completion of the renovation and kumbabishekam.

To know more details about this Temple, Sthala Puranam, Address, Contact Info., and Kumbabishekam invitation and schedule both in English & Tamizh, click the following link. Contact Info is also given below.
