A couple of weeks ago, HH Sri Jayendra Saraswathi Swamigal, Shankaracharya of the Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham, informed that the consecration of the famous Kamakshi Amman temple in Kancheepuram would be held on February 1, 2017.

Preparations for the event have been on since then. On Saturday, the Endowments Commissioner of the state government asked the temple authority to immediately change the consecration date to February 9.

Although no order was issued on this, the Commissioner made it clear over the phone that ‘February 1’ is not auspicious, but did not say for whom it is inauspicious. “We received a call from the endowments commissioner on Saturday morning. He demanded that we change the date. We don’t know why the government is interfering in this matter that our Acharya Jayendra Saraswathi Swamigal…

  1. Namaskaram,
    First we should believe in almighty the Lord, at the end Dharma will prevail. Now everyone knows what happened. Pranams

    Most importantly, the official Kamakshi temple website still lists only as Feb 1 as the date.

    Let us not head over heels to some news that we do not know the authenticity of. By giving importance to unreliable/unofficial news we may set up a platform for some unpleasant news which would not occur in the first place if we remain silent.

    There should be no need for any petition through Swami or Modi at this point.

  4. We can’t expect the govt. To respect temples, and our feelings. They must our Acharya’s decision and keep their business with polical affairs. I feel that kanchi madam or their followers should not listen to govt. In this. Matter.please be strong else they’ll interfere in every affair.

  5. Am repeatedly saying, dismantle HR & CE Dept. and repel the Act. The Dept.is destroying Temples. It is filled with people who have no knowledge of Hinduism.

  6. PERIYAVA paarthuppa… Ellaam avar seyal…
    Andanallur Kamala & vedanarayanan

  7. Mahesh- I think we should start a petition and submit to Modi Ji. Government has not jurisdiction in the matam.

  8. Let us all pray to Mahaperiyava. He is the only one deciding athority

  9. Let not Tamil Nadu Govt. get into trouble interfering with religious matters! Let AcharyaL’s opinion be final. Maha Periyava ThiruvadigaLe CharaNam! Hara Hara Shankara, Jaya Jaya Shankara!
