I had a great opportunity to visit all of the pancha bootha thalamus in this trip – a van arulale avan thaal vanangi. In fact just today I completed the last one (Thirukalahasti).
Last week I was at Thiruvanaikka. We had a wonderful darshan and a superb time at our Sankara matam. One has to visit this place to see how old and historic and majestic this place is. This place is so vast – amazing! Our matam provides all the thraviyam to temple’s uchchi kaala puja for a very very long time.. Also there is a pancha muka shiva lingam that was found by Mahaperiyava and did prathishta there!
This matam is close to Mahaperiyava and Pudhu Periyava. In fact, Pudhu Periyava studied here at this patasala.
Currently, there are about 15+ vidhyarthis and few folks from the vrudhaashramam. We had dinner and lunch – it was such an amazing food 🙂 It was a pleasure to sit with the vidyarthis and eat with them. It was extremely delighting to see that the kids get very good food.
Although we have a vast place etc, this place requires quite some financial support and HH Pudhu Periyava had asked few key folks to reach out to many folks to get support. From the blog we have pledged to support them from next few months.
Here are some pictures from there! – enjoy…
In one of the photo, you will see one elderly person sitting on the floor. He did amavasya tharpanam for several folks that day and he is blind! I was just amazed!
Jaya Jaya Shankara Hara Hara Shankara
