I am sure at this point, across the globe, most of us would have completed 2015 yajur veda upakarma.. I am sure there are so many children who are having their thalai aavani avittam today – very special for them. Tomorrow we all are going to go sahasra gayathri japam.
Isn’t this a great time to take a sankalpam to do sahasra gayathri japam on every Sunday? I just got off from the event where there were about 40+ people gathered for upakarma. I talked to them for a minute or two about Mahaswami’s point on Sunday sahasra japam and how there are folks all over the world doing this in different groups. . Right then, two people wanted to start from next week. I talked to few kids who are having their thalai aavani avittam and they also agreed to do this….
As elders, we need to lead by examples. As devotees of Sri Periyavas, our responsibility is to follow the very basic upadesams of their Holinesses. Let us start this yagna from tomorrow onwards. 1008 on Sundays are not hard at all. When I started I was too frightened but after few weeks, it becomes naturally.
Lets do it.
Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara!
