Lalgudi Sankara mutt is uniquely distinction for the first mutt to be installed by Periyava with Adi Shankara Prathishtai after taking sanyasa. Time flies – this mutt just finished 100 years! Till 1995 HH Pudhu Periyava has been personally attending the kumbabhishekam of this place. The next kumbabishekam with 100 years mark is yet to be conducted. Angarai auditor Sri R Venkatasubramaniam (RVS) (click here for his experience with HH) is taking the lead in this effort. I talked to him and renovation work is going on and hopefully in mid-April, the kumbabhishekam would happen with His blessings. Although all vaideeka expenses will be assisted by Kanchi matam, Shri RVS wants to collect the renovation expenses (nearly 4 lakhs) from the public. One of the Periyavas has agreed to come and bless this event.
While this is going on, in Chennai, Smt Revathi Kumar, an ardent devotee of Mahaperiyava also known to Brahmasri Vedapuri mama has come up with first volume titled “Thayumana Mahan”. This book captures several incidents from Mahaperiyava’s life as witnessed by Brahmasri. So many lessons, so many interesting events – not heard before. As I mentioned in my earlier post, this is a great book….Priced very nominally also…As a first volume, this is a very small book. Due to great response to this book, she is planning to come up with a second volume sometime soon. As a great devotee, she has decided to send all the proceedings from this book towards Lalgudi Sankara mutt renovation effort.
Pl contact Smt Revathi Kumar at 9789082269 to get your copy. Hope Shri RVS conducts this kumbabishekam as planned with the blessings of all periyavas. Please read this flier and contact Shri RVS if you wish to donate.
Let us pray Him to help complete this effort smoothly.
Jaya Jaya Shankara Hara Hara Shankara
