Shri Balaji who recently visited Sri Matam sent me this info to share with all as per Bala Periyava’s instruction….It is an outstanding speech from HH Bala Periyava…Must-watch…..Please listen, visit the site and spread the word….
Thanjavur Parampara is a website (http://www.thanjavurparampara.com/) that’s being developed by Sri Matam to re-instate the importance of Thanjavur district. In a nutshell, the website tries to capture and share the following:
1. Temples – Provide key information about significant temples in this district. What is the presiding deity in each temple? History about temple (Sthala Varalaru), Sthala Vriksham, Distance of the temple from junctions, bus routes, near by temples and other places of historical significance. Once this repository is built out, it would enable people to reference this website and be able to plan their yaatra (pilgrimage) accordingly.
2. People – Share the experiences of people (who have lived in Thanjavur dt) and what is it like to live here, how was this district before, how has it changed recently, what are some of their experiences while living here, any important/notable things or places that they might have come across.
3. Your Experience – If you or anyone elderly in your family have got something to share which would add value to the website, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and share your information for them to add to this website and also for others to benefit from it.
4. Re-Connect – Last but not least, we should re-establish the connect with our native place for all it’s spiritual glory and history by contributing to this website and also by regularly following it.
Also, there’s a Anugraha Bhashanam video of HH Sri Sri Sri Bala Periyava on the home page (when you scroll down). It’s an absolute gem and is a MUST WATCH for everyone.
JAYA JAYA SHANKARA HARA HARA SHANKARA.
