Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara – Here is the answer to last week’s question. Many bhakthas got it right some did not. The question was what was Periyava’s regret not what a Sannyasi cannot do per sastras 🙂 There is a whole section in Vol 7 on Namaskaram where Periyava feels a lot that he cannot do Namaskaram and asks us to as much as we can to Bhagawan and elders.
Periyava’s Position – Peetathipadhi and Jagadguru title has prevented him from doing one of the following which he has regretted deeply. Since he cannot do, he urges us to do this as much as possible as it is one of the greatest privileges to do so. What is it? Answer with a succinct explanation.
Ans – Namaskaram. Click HERE-1, HERE-2. Read these two chapters and it is really moving. If you have more time try reading the entire section where Periyava emphasizes the importance of Namaskaram and does a thesis on it.
