66th Shankaracharya’s Aradhana — Feb 22nd, 2014

66th Shankaracharya2
The Aradhana of the 66th Acharya of Shri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham His Holiness Pujyasri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati VI Shankaracharya Swamiji is today the Magha Krishna Ashtami.

The Acharya was born in Udayambakkam Village in Chengelpet District in Tamilnadu. He established the Advaita Sabha for the preservation and encouragement of the studies of Advaita Vedanta Shastra.

He was the son of Sitarama Sastri. This Acharya’s poorvasrama name was Swaminatha. He was a native of Udayambakkam. He attained mukti at Kalavai in the year 1907 on Krishna Ashtami in the month of Magha of the cyclic year Parabhava (1907 AD).

Mahaswamigal had darshan of this Acharya in 1906 when the Latter was in His Chaturmasya Vratham. It seems that at that time itself the 66th Acharya did a Sankalpam in His mind that Mahaperiyava would be the future Peetadhipathi of Kanchi Matam!

Let us invoke Him in our minds and pray to Him and be blessed on this holy Anusham day. Shankara.
