Periyava Golden Quotes-13

சூர்ய கிரணம் இருக்கிறது. ஒவ்வொரு கிரணமும் நெருப்பே. ஆனால் ஒரு துணியை வெய்யிலில் காட்டினால் அதில் தீப்பற்றிக் கொள்ளவில்லை. லென்ஸ் என்ற பூதக் கண்ணாடியை வெய்யிலில் காட்டி அதன் கீழ் ஒரு துணியைப் பிடித்தால் அதில் தீப்பற்றிக் கொள்கிறது. பூதக்கண்ணாடி அனேக கிரணங்களை ஒருமிக்கக் குவிக்கிறது. அப்படியே எங்குமுள்ள ஈச்வரனுடைய அருள் நமக்குக் கிடைக்கும்படிச் செய்ய ஆலயம் அவசியமாக இருக்கிறது.
– ஜகத்குரு ஸ்ரீசந்திரசேகரேந்திர சரஸ்வதி ஸ்வாமிகளின் அருள்மொழிகள்


We have solar rays. Every solar ray is a fire in itself. But if we show a cloth in direct sunlight it does not catch fire. However, when we show the same cloth under a lens through which the Sun rays pass through it catches fire. The lens amalgamates the power of all solar rays together. The same way Ishwara’s grace though exist all over gets conglomerated in temples. – Sri Kanchi Maha Periyava

  1. It is not enough to do daily pooja and prayers at home but also should go to the temple to get the Ishwara’s grace.

    Sri Periyava Saranam for guiding us.

  2. Analogy and Analytical ability Of Maha Periyava which is simply very great has to made known to all ouryoungsters,Especially to those living away from India about our lineage, heritage, tradition and never to go out of the fold. Mahaswami had said in one of his books that muslim children at the age of 5 are taught that only their religion is the best and how we fail to educate our children on our values and greatness about our religion and our way of life which is more than 5000 years.

    • Ram Ram Sir, For Sanatana Dharma is not time bound and has been there from the day of Srishti (Creation). I’m not sure where you are getting the calculations from. Even this yugam Ramayanam happened around 18 lakh (1.8 million) years ago. Just a simple calculation of our yugas is listed below.

      Who is Manu and what is a Manvantara, or the Hindu calculation of time ?

      ‘Antara’ means “space” or “duration between.” Therefore, a ‘Manvantara’ is the period of time or duration that a Manu (the archetypal human being) rules the entire creation. Hindus calculate time based on ‘Manvantaras’. Western scientists and archaeologists later discovered that these ‘Manvantaras’ are based on accurate astronomical calcualtions.

      One ‘Manvantara’ is calculated as follows:

      1. 360 human years make one ‘divya varsha’ (celestial year)
      2. 4,800 ‘divya varshas’ make one ‘Satya Yuga’, or ‘Krita Yuga’
      3. 3,600 ‘divya varshas’ make one ‘Treta Yuga’
      4. 2,400 ‘divya varshas’ make one ‘Dvapara Yuga’
      5. 1,200 ‘divya varshas’ make one ‘Kali Yuga’

      All the ‘yugas’ together total 12,000 divya varshas, and this one cycle of all the ‘yugas’ make one ‘maha-yuga’ or ‘chatur-yuga’.

      One ‘Manvantara’ = 71 ‘maha-yugas’, or 306,720,000 human years.

      One ‘Kalpa’, or cycle of creation, preservation, and destruction = 14 ‘Manvantaras’.

      Thus, the cycle of time continues.

      At the beginning of each ‘Manvantara’, a Manu appears and codifies all ethical and social regulations to be followed during the ‘Manvantara’. The Manu whose code is currently being followed is ‘Vaivasvata Manu’, who is the seventh in the line of the cycle of 14 Manus. The six Manus who preceded Vaivasvata Manu were : Svayambhuva, Svarochisha, Uttama, Tamasa, Raivata, and Chakshusha. The seven who will follow Vaivasvata Manu are : Daksha-savarani, Brahma-savarni, Dharma-savarni, Rudra-savarni, Deva-savarnai, and Indra-savarni.
