  1. A scholar of exemplary penetration into philosophical subtleties. As a teacher he was unique. I had come to know him personally during my long stint of service in the capital. Very gentle in his approach . His humility was touching and moved the hearts of people who came close to him. Only in February last we had an audience with him for some time. Despite his health, he was scintillating in his comments. A great loss indeed.

  2. Adiyen Ranganathan from Bangalore.
    Bangalore Shishyas have been blessed to have been with Acharyan in Bangalore for nearly ten days. Many Shishyas had Pancha Samskaram and Prabhadhi during his mangalasasanam and also many devotees had ponadi in their houses. I am very fortunate to be blessed with Acharyan’s presence in my factory also, which is my almost Bhagyam. What else do we need in life?

  3. The report about HH Sriman Poundarikapuram Andaman SwAmigal’s attaining Acharyan Thiruvadi came as a shocking unforeseen and unexpected news. It is a great loss for all his sishyas. Please provide more details.

  4. Fondly called Dr. Sir in New Delhi days. He was fond of teaching young children for doing daily parayana shlokas. I was one of them who attended his classes for many years. Blessed are those who learnt from him in New Delhi days.

  5. I had the pleasure of the acquiantance of Sri Raghuveera Maha Desikan in his poorvastram. We met during our visits to my Acharyan Paravakottai Aandavan. A scholar who never exhibited his knowledge, was humble and devoted to Paravakottai Aandavan. He took charge of Tiruneermalai Aandavan Ashramam during construction and was instrumental for its proper construction. His elder brother late Sri. Vu.ve Varadan swamigal was also a scholar who worked in Beneras University and later settled in Delhi. Aandavan swamigal was very strict in his anushtanams. It is a loss to all our sishyas of Poundarika Aashramam.
    Aandavan swmigal now joined Paravakottai Aandavan in Vaikundam doing nitya kainkaryam to Lord Sriman Narayana

  6. GLAD TO SEE THE ABOVE ARTICLES…..

    HE TOTALLY FRIGHTENED AND CRIED AND ALSO….ANUDINAM DOING THE SEVAN WITHOUT ANY COST BASIS PURELY WITH SINCERE AND GOOD INTENTION TO SHARE WITH SRI VAISHNAVAS….BUT, THESE PUPIL HARASSED ME AND ALSO ABUSED THE ANUDIANAM IN SUCH A MNNER..HE NEVER HAD A SUCH BAD EXPERIENCE PREVOUSLY IN ANY OF ASRAMAM OR MUTT…EVEN, BEFORE THIS, POUDRIPURAMA ASHRAMAMAM TOO….THAT ANDAWAN SO POND ON HIM…HE USE TO CALL HIM PERSONALLY TO COVER ALL THE RITUALS AND BLESS HIM WITH BALAMANTRA AKSHADAI…..
    TE REASON BEING GIVEN THAT SO CALLED AND SO SINCERE SRI VAISHNAVAS THAT…IF HE TOOK SNAPS AND PUBLISH….THER IS A CHANCE…IF ANYTHING BY MISTAKE ANYTHING WRONGLY DONE THE RITUALS…IT WILL CREATE PROBLEM FOR THEM…..MY QUESTION IS WHEN YOU PUPIL SO PARTICULAR ABOUT THAT…INSTEAD OF CHECKING THE CAMERA MAN…INSTEAD OF DOING THAT KIND OF WATCHMEN DUTY…IF YOU ARE SO PERFECT ON HAVING KNOWLEDGE ON THE RITUAL BEING OFFERED…YOU SHOULD WATCH AND TRY TO CORRECT IF ANYTHING GOES WRONG…INSTEAD OF MAKING HUMILIATING AND HURTING ONE SRIVISHANAVA BHAGAVOTHAMAR…WHO IS RENDERING FREE FUND SERVICES TO SRI VAISHNAVA COMMUNITY…
    AFTER THIS INCIDENT I HAVE WITNESSED, I HAVE HAVE CONSOLED sRI.sRINIVASN PERSONALLY AND REQUESTED HIM…TO LEAVE THAT PLACE ONCE FOR ALL AND UPDATE ABOUT THIS TO HIS HIGHER UPS…TO KNOW ABOUT THAT SO CALLED SRIVISHNAVAS….
    SIMILARLY, I HAVE ALSO LEFT ON HALF WAY BY NOT DIGESTING THE HUMILIATION IN PUBLIC ONE SRI VASIHANV BHAGVOTHAMAR…AND NOONE COME FORWARD TO HELP HIM OR COMPROMISE THAT SO CALLLED SRIVAISHANAVAS ON THAT PLACE….EVEYONE, LOOK MUTE SPECTATORS…..WE SHOULD ASHAME OUR SELF TO CALL OUR SELF AS SRIVIAHNAVAS…..

    ALTHOUGH, I HAVE STARTED MOVING AFTER TELLING TO LEAVE…EVEN THAN, HE SAID, I SHOULD NOT LEAVE AS THESE PUPIL VERSION OR INSULT….THESE GUYS ONLY VISIT ONECE IN BLUE MOON TO NAY ASHRAMAM OR MUTT…BUT, AS FAR ME, I WILL DO MY SERVICE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, AFTER DISCUSSING WITH ANUDINAM HIGHER UP….I WILL DO ACCORDINGLY…..
    I BOW MY HEAD FOR HIS SINCERE KANIKARYAM…I SPITE OF GREAT HUMILIATION…STILL HE IS NOT BOWED DOWN…

    I DON’T KNOW…WHETHER, THIS INCIDENT COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF TOP PUPIL ANUDIANAM…MAY BE… THEY MIGHT BE…BUT, STILL THEY ARE CONTINUING WITH REAL SPIRIT OF AND PRINCIPLE OF SRI VAISHNAVISIM…..ANUDINAM IS GREAT….

  7. adiyen is blessed to have been swAmy’s neighbour and shishyai in his PoorvAshrama days. A very great scholar ( in Tamiz, Sanskrit and Hindi) , he who would readily help me out with clarifications regarding pAsurams from AnDAL’s TiruppAvai and guide me to present them with richness of the poetry along with the musicality. DR Sir ( as he was known in his poorvAshrama days) was having an organisation called ‘SriRangaSri Vidya Samiti’ , in Harinagar, Delhi, in which he would conduct a TiruppAvai utsavam every mArgazhi month. And, adiyen had the bhAgyam of singing all the 30 pAsurams in a kucheri format, every year for about 6-7 years . He also conducted Sampradayic classes for gents , teaching sandhyAvandam mantrams , Tiru ArAdhanam krama etc , stotra paadams for ladies and children. The above , were among several other upanyAsams which he himself did during RAmanavami utsavam etc. His contributions during his poorvAshrama days to all those who benefitted , has sowed the seeds for their growth spiritually and sAmpradAically. A true mArgadarshi! AchAryan tiruvadigaLe CharaNam.🙏🙏.

  8. adiyen was blessed to be HH SwAmy’s neighbour and shishyai in his poorvAshrama days. SwAmy would be always ready to help with improving the poetical renditions in TiruppAvai to present it better , both poetically and musically. DR Sir ( as swAmy was known during his poorvAshrama days) was a great scholar in Tamiz, Sanskrit, and Hindi. He was having an organisation known as *SriRangaSri Vidya Samiti* ( in Harinagar, New Delhi in his poorvAshrama days), for promoting SAmpradAic vishayams. And ,adiyen was asked by swAmy himself to present TiruppAvai ( all 30) in a concert format every year for his organisation. He also conducted classes to teach SandhyAvandhana mantrams , ArAdhana kramams etc for men, and Stotra paadams for ladies and children. Apart from these he had periodic upanyAsam sessions , during AzhwAr tirunakshatrams, RAmanavami and other utsavams etc, where he would himself deliver elaborate upanyAsams packed with anecdotes and sadh-vishayams. For all those *Harinagar* vaasis who benefitted from this exposure , by being associated with him during the 1990s is simply divine and it has definitely sowed the seeds for their spiritual growth in the present times. AchAryan TiruvadigaLe CharaNam!🙏🙏
