Mahaperiyava Jayanthi_AtiRudram@Echangudi_May 15th-24th, 2013

AtiRudram invitation

Sree Chandrasekarendra Saraswathi swamigal kaingarya Trust will be performing an Ati Rudram on the occasion of Mahaperiyava’s Jayanthi from May 15th to 24th , 2013 @ Echangudi. You can get a glimpse of the 12 AtiRudrams conducted by the Trust in this video. All the devotees are invited for this event.

The Ati Rudra Maha Yagnam is very sacred and it drives out the calamities and difficulties of mankind. The Sri Rudram describes various atributes of Lord Siva, THE SHIV TATVA or SHIV RAHASYA. Through the chanting of the Sri Rudram, Lord Siva’s various attributes and aspects are invoked and worshipped. In the Taithareeya Samhita, 4th skanda (chapter) – the 7th sub-stanza is known as ‘Chamaka’. In this section, the letters ‘cha’ and ‘mey’ appear repeatedly and it is hence known as Chamaka.

Eleven recitations of the Sri Rudram followed by one recitation of the Chamakam is called the Ekadasa Rudram.

Eleven Ekadasa Rudram recitations make one Laghu Rudram.

Eleven Laghu Rudram recitations make a Maharudram

And eleven Maharudram recitations make an Ati Rudram!

Thus, in an Athi Rudra Maha Yagnam, the Sri Rudram will be recited 14,641 times and the Chamakam 1331 times, with the performance of 1331 Rudra Homams by 121 Ritvik priests. It is said the each word of SRI RUDRAM has hidden meaning and posses various remedies for incurable diseases.

  3. amazing video – vibrations are quite seen/heard even in watching this video – think about physical presence. I recommend all folks in Tamilnadu to attend this event somehow…..For folks living outside India – like me – these are distant dreams – how unfortunate we are! I was so close in attending Tiruvottiyur Atirudram and suddenly my plans changed and couldn’t attend!!! If you can’t attend, please send your contribution (no matter how small it is) as the entire crowd is cream of Mahaperiyava devotees and not a penny would be spent unnecessarily.

    Jaya Jaya Shankara Hara Hara Shankara

    • If the earlier comment on this topic came across as offending anyone, really sorry. It wasn’t meant to offend. hope you got the message.
      Think I should stop visiting this blog if I expect an ideal world where all mahaperiyava devottees will one day respect HH Pudhuperiyava also.

      • Dear devotee,

        I am also waiting for such a day.

        Is any of your comments missing from being approved? I did not see – may be there is a miss…..

      • Earlier comment: If this activity has been endorsed by mutt and periyava, please try to put add a picture of pudhu periyava. He isn’t going to gain or lose anything if we do so. But, guru anugraham and guru bhakthi is very important in everything we do.

        During moderation if the comments are filtered, we should accept it. I always believe in the concept of stithapragnya as advocated by Gita and aim not to react. But – certain basic things are important. Thanks for being kind enough to at least know what was that post.

        On a general note: I request you to conduct a poll and see how many of the million visitors to your blog actually respect Jagadhguru? May be you should try to ask it in a subtle way to understand how the faith has changed off late. You will be surprised and one may feel disappointed too. I just don’t know when will this jigsaw puzzle be solved. Just look at the so called faith in us. First in place, we don’t respect Guru parampara, then we fight with other mutts, other communities, other religions. People mayn’t accept this and I am also not going to be the loser. I know that I’m not standing on the right battle ground here. Everything starts with one person’s mind and his opinions on someone and something. Idhu kali yugam. Dharmo Rakshathi Rakshakaha.

      • Made some edits to avoid hurting others’ feelings… For the record, I have the holy padhukas of HH Pudhu Periyava and it is the very first padhuka to come to US. So that explains my devotion to Him. Your points are well-taken by me. I share the same feelings. On the same token, I can’t enforce bakthi into someone else – it has to come naturally. People who do not give their respect to HH Pudhu Periyava do not bother me – I have seen a lot of them. Also this blog’s objective is not to find them and convince them. Also there is no need to conduct a poll – it is not my job too. You can wake up a sleeping guy but not someone who pretends….

        The million/billion numbers dont mean a thing…..Once a devotee approached Baghwan Ramana and told that his japam towards one crore rama nama stopped. Bagawan was very happy to know that and told the devotee that he is blessed. Devotee was clueless. Baghwan explained, “if you had finished the last stretch and achieved that 1 crore number, your ego would have multiplied in billions – thank Rama that He stopped you right here so that you still stay normal”. This is the story that comes to my mind every time I think of reaching some milestones 🙂

        Let me continue on what I started off with. Let them do what they have to.

      • Yes – I agree to your views. But – at some point may be you should consider inspiring guru bhakthi and I see this blog doing it already through posts.
        Just shared an apathy out of the uncontrolled passion for mutt (and may be small bhakthi.. not to your level).
        Polls traditionally create chaos in these cases 🙂 and there has to be a difference.

      • Dear “devotee”,

        I know that the id you’re using is not a real one. Dharmo Rakshathi Rakshakaha and using a fake email id – dont rhyme well 🙂 you may want to use your real id going forward. Pl take this comment constructively.

  4. Much blessed to see this video. Have the blessing of seeing so many Mahan athishtaanams, many I never visited, only heard about. Maha Periyava giving Dhashan in Poornahuthi Homam is a Blessing to allof us. Looking forward to the Athi Rudram at Echangudi in May 2013! Jaya Jaya Shankara, Hara Hara Shankara! Sambhoo Mahadeva!Om Nama Shivaaya!


  6. Ganapathi Agraharam is a well known place, located about 3 km from Eachangudi, and you may quote it as a reference to reach to the yagna sthalam.

  7. Echangudi is near Kumbakonam. There are facilities to reach that place. It would be a great blessing
    if one makes it. Jaya Jaya Shankara Hara Hara Shankara
