I was blessed to participate in Maharudram event in Detroit over the past weekend. It was such an amazing event, extremely well planned, conducted in a very grand manner…12 vaidheekas were driving the event while 140+ chanted Sri Rudram under one roof – great vibration….In the evening we had Krama archanai – outstanding one….Rudra Homam was great the next day – unfortunately I did not capture photo/video of that 🙁
As a highlight, we were blessed to have Mahaperiyava padhukas there and we received prasadams from Sri Matam for this event. Sarvam Periyava mayam!
Although we can’t compare ourselves with the events in India, here all efforts are made to the best extent possible to set and meet a specific standards…
I have posted some videos for your view….
Video is bit shaky as I took with my phone camera….pl bear with the headache…..
Incredible Mahesh. So proud to see your son recite the Mantras nicely.
NAN Enrum thangalukku kadamai pattavan / I am very great-full you and your associates
adhellam romba periya vaarthai – certainly i am not worth anything for that…..we don’t take pride in doing this…. we feel happy to do this as you are happy to read and enjoy the articles – thats all.
Dear Mr Mahesh
Thanks a lot for the video as It made me experience the event once again at home. It was nice to have met you there. Nevertheless to mention here that my husband had a dream on that Saturday night that Bala Periyaval was sitting there and gracing the event. When he shared this dream we really got overwhelmed.
Blessed all we to have the Padhukas there. Thanks to whosoever(from Omaha?) brought the same.
Sir, This site could not be opened. With kind regards, R.Venkataramanan
Thank you Mahesh for sharing this…wanted to check if such events happen in the NJ vicinity…Are there any forums where i can identify such events for participation…Pl let me know.
There is one coming on June 1st and 2nd at http://www.svbf.org – I intend to attend that too…..About 2 miles from this temple is Swami Dayanadha Saraswathi Swamigal’s gurukulam is located. I have already written about this place earlier.
Thanks Mahesh. I think svbf is the Sarada Peetam koil in Stroudsburg….The other temple you are referring to, I guess, is the Dhakshimamurthy Koil…
Thanks…I look forward to…
I am staying one extra night to see the 5.30AM abishekam for Lord Dakshinamurthy on Sunday!
மலைப்பாக இருக்கிறது வெளிநாட்டில் இவ்வளவு பிரமாதமாக ஸ்ரீ மகாருத்ரம் பூஜா நடத்த முடியுமா என்று? முடியும் என்று சாதித்து கட்டிவிட்டார்கள். போட்டோ ஷேக் ஆனாலும், நம் மதம் மீதுள்ள பக்தி ஷேக் ஆகவில்லை என்று நினைக்கிறேன் ! பதிவுக்கு மிக்க நன்றி !
Mahesh, I second to what you have experenced. This is my first Maha Rudra and I am very glad I had grabbed this opportunity. I am still feeling the vibrations. Last night I was dreaming about rudram. I am feeling very lucky and happy that I got chance to sit along with all ritwiks and ganapati’s. OM NAMA SHIVAYAA!!
Thank you Mahesh for Sharing. Sorry did not link up with you. I was there. Thank you again for sharing
no problem…i dont get noticed normally 🙂 However, if you recall a tall guy with a beard with a 10-year old boy with him, that was me! you may see me in the video for few seconds, when my son shot…..in fact my son also attended the first day and chanted. this is his 3rd maharudram to participate…..
