I regret to let you all know that Brahmasri Parasuramachar , a Nithya Agnihothri merged with Mahaswamigal today. He lived in Sirugumani and managed the Sirugumani Patashala as directed by Him. Being a madhwa, he had great respect for Periyava and lived by His advice and direction. He is one of the rarest and his loss is a great loss to sanataria dharma. One who had seen his interview would tell that he had poorna anugraham of Mahaswami. He has been going through some heart ailment – had surgery in the past. As you could tell, he is not that old but for some reason, Mahaswami decided to keep him with Him.
Every time when I chant Narayana Suktham and chant this line “padhe parame madwa utsaha”, I think of him. Only those who have listened to his interview would know why!
Our blog’s veda rakshana fund was used to support his patasala in the past. I will talk to them to understand the current needs and see if we can consider supporting them for some more time…
