Sri Gurubyo Namah:
This Jaya varusham is Mahaperiyava’s birth year, HH Pudhu Peruyava’s Peetarohana year (if I am not mistaken). In this great year, with all Periyava’s blessings, an Atirudram and Satha Chandi Mahayagnyam is going to be conducted in Villupuram, birthplace of Mahaperiyava between May 15th to 25th, 2014.
This trust has been successfully conducting 12 atirudrams in all adishtanams for the past two years.
Some of the readers have written to me about contributing to good cause etc. For those, please consider supporting this event.
Whether you contribute or not, please attend this great event to receive the blessings of Lord Parameswara and Devi who have manifested in the form of our Periyavas.
With the fervent anugrahams of HHMahaperiava and other Periyavas, the trust has been spearheading this AthiRudrams and Sahasrachandis at every other known Adishtanams of the revered Acharyas of Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam and other Holy places related to Kanchi Mutt and it is fortunate to arrange the next one at this Holy town made holier on the birth our Holiness.
A full fledged AthiRudram is conducted for a continuous 11 days and a total of 180 Ritwiks/veda pundits participate in fullest mode of dedication and focus. Specific counts of experts on each of Rig, Krishna Yajur, Suklar Yajur, Jayamani Saka Sama, Atharvana veda participate strictly following their own self discipline and anushtanams as clearly defined in texts. In fact no Ritwik moves out of the place for the entire 11 days. Also a Satha Chandi Yagnyam to propitiate Goddess Devi is done in the morning along with the parayanam on each of the 11 days. Until now, the Trust has been successful in conducting AthiRudrams in the 12 Adhistanams of the former Peedathipathis of Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam and also at Ichangudy village the venerated birth place of Mahaswamigal besides those conducted at Kariapatti and Ponnur villages.We were also fortunate to conduct a similar Adirudram and a ShasraChandy at Irulneekki village the birth place of His Holiness Jayendra Saraswathy Swamigal.
The entire 11 days right from early morning to late night is soaked in bhakti with the ritwiks, volunteers organizing the day to day operations and the visitors thoroughly becoming engrossed in every other ritual. The following table highlights the key activities on each day.
