Another way to promote Sandhyavandhanam and Gayathri Japam

Thanls to Shri Muthusubramanian for sharing this….

There are many methods to encourage but Prohit Shri Ramji at Nungambakkam takes a sifferent approach.

Normally he conducts avani avittam at a place called Ashramam in Nungambakkam,Chennai every year. Four years earlier He told all those who have attended avani avittam that he will accept Dakshina only from those who are doing sandya vandanam incl Madyanikam and Bramayanghyam regularly.  Others can simply attend Avani avittam ,wear new Poonal and go.This had brought changes in lot of people and they have started doing sandya vandanaam and etc.

Last year He has asked everybody to do 1008 Gayathri japam atleast on Sundays.

This year He is giving srimad Ramayanam Book in 7 vols from his own funds to all those who are doing the 1008 Gayathri on Sundays. 

It is very rare to see someone like this and we all pray for his health and well being and may Maha Periava shower his HIs full Blessings on to him and motivate all of us to do our nithyakarma without any break…

Jaya jaya sankara hara hara sankara

  1. For the past few years I make it a point to perform ‘trikaala sandhyavandanam’ (that too with proper pronunciation, as far as possible) daily . It gives me ‘Atma-shakti’.

  2. It is nice to read all the comments bout doing sandhya vandhanam and maadhyanikam. I have 2 elder brothers, I wish they should also do this and chant rudram. I told them several times, and one brother has started to do but not regularly. Maha periyava should bless them to do the regular karma.

  3. Rama Rama

    Sama – dana – Bheda – Danda ar Four Upayams to get the things done.
    When Maha Swami used Sama way of preaching, hardly a few percent of transformation took place.

    Devotees like Raju Ramji Sastrigal use the second way ie Dana by way of distributing Ramayana books etc.

    Sometimes, Bheda also used by a few gurus expressing clearly as No Nithya karma means unfit to claim as their guru.

    (I heard that Maha periyava condemned using his name in wedding invitations, if dowry played vital role)

    Last but not least, if all the above three things got failed to bear the effects, nature will itself apply auto correction by fourth upayam ie, Dandam.

  4. Suresh Sir .. if you have the will you can .. set alarm 4am and wakeup at Brahmma muhurtham .. after brusing teeth make your own cup of tea .. chant om namasivaaya for half an hour and jaya jaya sankara hara hara sankara next half an hour .. 5.30pm .. take bath and start sandhyavandhanam keeping in mind suryodhayam time .. all it takes 20 minutes including 108 gayathri japams .. after sandhyavandhanam you will find lots of spare time ,, especially between 4am to 6am you will find so refreshing .. once this becomes a habit, even with alaram you will wakeup at 4am .. this is my experience .. just try ..

    • Dear Sir,

      In the early morning, taking bath irrespective of all seasons is very difficult !! Can we perform Pratha:Sandhi without taking bath?? Pl share your views..

  5. excellent service .May god bless him with good health

  6. Nameskaram. I am struggling to do once a day. May be MahaPeriyava would help me, get over from my laziness and no other reason.

    My Nameskaram to all the Yaghobavidhis this Avani Avittam and Gayathri MahaMandhra Japam.

  7. Anyone with contact details of Sri Ramji Sastrigal ? Thanks.

  8. Very nice effort. Maha Periyava ThiruvadigaLee CharaNam!

  9. In addition to my earlier comment, Sri Ramji conducts Vishnu Sahasranama Parayanam on every saturday evening and Sooriya Namaskarams on Sunday Mornings at the Ashrams. I am blessed to have him as muy Guru and guide. Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara.

  10. Sri.Ramji, author of Athma Vidya Samajam Trust and founder trustee of Pidi Ari Thittam Nungambakkam, has been advocating all his clientale to perform karmanushtana. He is in the footsteps of his father Sri.Raju Sasthrigal an ardent devotee of Mahaperiyaval.
    Sri.Ramji facilitates by giving CDs for Sandhyavandhanam and other pujas free of cost. He also gives required samiths free to brahmacharis to perform Samithadhanam. He does not insist on any sum of money for performing rituals and takes care of economically downrodden in his own way.
    Mahaperiyaval had asked the devotees to do 1008 Gayathri Japam on holidays that would benefit them. Sri Ramji who follows the teaching of the Guru motivates. Last year he conducted Gayathri Mela on the day of Avani Avittam and gave full set of Deivathin Kural to about 20. During Snkara Jayanthi about 30 people participated in a special programme to perform 1008 Gayathri Japa. This year during Avani Avittam he shall give full set of Ramayana to all who do the Japam 1008 times every week. All the costs are borne by him personally.
    We his followers pray the Almight for his health and cotinued guidance.
    Trustee of the above mentioned trust.

  11. Great to hear about this. Truly a different approach to make everyone perform the anushtanams.

    • Can we perform ‘Prathah Sandhyavandanam” at the appropriate time, say before Sun rise in the morning without taking bath??

  12. If people can do Sandhyavandanam twice a day — morning and evening — and Maadhyanikam on Holidays it would be great. But for a officer goer to perform trikaala SV plus Brahmayagnyam…well, if one can do that, I am sure our Sri Achchaaryals of our Matam and Sri Mahaaperiyavaa would be immensely pleased with us, no doubt!

    • Dear Sir, it actually takes less than 15 mins to finish Maadhyanikam and Brahmayagnam. If any office goer says he doesn’t have 15 mins to spare, it is a lame excuse.

      • very true. Sri Mahaperiyavaa has told that noon starts after 8.30 AM and hence even office goers can finish Madhyanikam. I have been doing this for several years now. No Excuse ! Jaya jaya sankara hara hara sankara

  13. Really good one. Guru dakshina is very different. Definitely maha periyava bless him.
    Jaya Jaya Sankara
    Hara Hara Sankara

  14. Sri Ramji Sastrigal s/o Sri Raju sastrigal gave away more than 25 people Ra Ganapathy”s DEIVATHIN KURAL (7 Vol) last year on the day of Avani avittam, to all those who do 10008 Gayathri Jabam every Sunday. He requested all of them to share their experience on doing it. Grate service.

  15. I had been once to that place along with my Chittappa for Avani Avittam
    and he makes excellent arrangements. Let us pray Maha Periyava to bless him
    with all the best.

  16. Great Effort jaya jaya sankara hara hara sankara
