Story of Jaimini Patasala at Thoghur

When I visited this patasala / gurukulam last month, Brahmasri Makarabooshanam handed over this written papers to me and asked me to read this before giving this to Shri Chandramouli. This was actually written by his wife and signed by him. He has provided so much details about all the incidents – includes date, time etc on whenever he met Mahaperiyava – amazing memory. While reading one can understand how Periyava loved to recognize very rare sakas of our veda and keen on producing more vidhyarthis from such ones. For Brahmasri Makarabooshanam Mahaperiyava is Lord Narayanan!

This is one of the patasalas I am considering for supporting through our drive. Please refer to my picture album for this patasala….

One can’t resist noticing mami’s awesome handwriting!!!  Thought for a minute that this was a printed article.

  2. Thanks for the enlightenment about the word ‘zha’.
    After all the language Tamil also came into existence
    after Sanskrit. Thanks Mahesh.

  3. That’s got to be a wise decision Sri Mahesh, after all, you have visited the place in person and interacted with the teacher and the taught. Just one doubt: That tin shed for housing the cows, don’t you think it would be too hot during summer?

  4. மிக அற்புதமான, ஆத்ம நிறைவு தரும் பதிவு. தமிழில் மட்டுமே இருப்பதாக நினைக்கப் படும் ‘ழ’, ஸம்ஸ்க்ருதத்தில் எழுத்துவடிவில் இருப்பது ஆச்சரியமல்ல! ஸம்ஸ்க்ருத்தில் இருந்துதான் தமிழ் உருவானது என்பதை நிருபிக்கிறது. தங்களின் சேவை தொடரட்டும்.
