Today September 14th, 2013; Vijaya Aavani pooradam is the 55th day of HH 46th Srimath Azhagiyasingar, Srivan Sathakopa Sri Ranganatha Yathindra Maha Desikan’s Chathurmasya sankalpam. Abhigamanam was done at the usual time. Theertham, Sri Sathari and Prasada viniyogam were done systematically.
As mentioned earlier last week, there was a vidvat Sadas for HH Mukkur Azhagiyasingar’s thirunakshatram. Here is a short write up about Vidvat sadas. Knowledge is meant to be shared and when there is a congregation of like minded people or people in the same field expansion of knowledge happens. When this is true of mundane sciences, literature, music etc. It is even more so in the case of Adhyatma Vidya. It is to facilitate, share and understand scriptures in the right way that 42nd Srimath Azhagiyasingar Injimedu Azhagiyasingar started “Sri Malola Vidvath Sadas”. .Like Ramanuja’s fulfilment of three promises this Srimath Azhagiyasingar made three promises: 1) Establishing a Vedha Prabhandha, Shastra Patashala, 2) A sadas (meeting) of Vidvans well-versed in Desika Sampradhya and 3) A magazine from Ahobila Muth containing scholarly articles and also the happenings at the Muth, Panchangam etc. HH fulfilled all 3 wishes. The Nrisimha Priya magazine was started and reached the houses of bhakthas. The Maduranthakam Patashala was opened and Sri Malola Vidvath Sadas was started.
Srivaishnavas have to kalakshepam of Sri Bashyam, Geetha Bashyam, Bhaghavadh Vishayam and Swami Desikan’s Magnum Opus Srimath Rahasyatrayasaram. Those who mastered these 4 granthas are called Kalakshepa Adhikaris and they in turn conduct Kalakshepams to shishyas. Thus kalakshepam is done several times. Such scholars gather and discuss nuances and finer points in several aspects thereby clearing some doubts that may rise. Such Vidvath Sadas are held by all Vedic sampradhyas and even if one cannot understand just being with the Vidvans evokes a thirst to do kalakshepams and seek Gnanam.
Yesterday, 13th of September 2013 Srimath Azhagiyasingar and Doali kannan blessed the Tirumaligai of a shishya. At the invitation of Shishyas Srimath Azhagiyasingar visits their house for Dolai or Ponnadi. This happens in the late afternoon after Ijyai and generally before Panaka Aradhanam. A house becomes a home when bhaghavathas visit them and purify the house. In the days of yore when Vaishvadevam was done in every household Sanyasis were allowed to take cooked prasadam from them as bhikshai. But that cannot happen any more. But they can come and purify with their presence.
The following are some of the photographs taken earlier today…
