Thanks to Sri Kamakshi Seva Samithi for putting together a very nice calendar under the guidance of HH Balaperiyava.
I will be making posting of Jaya Gosham and Cauvery pushkaram separately as they deserve special attention.
Sri Rangarajan narrated his experience with HH Balaperiyava in making this calendar.
Pujya Sri Bala Periyaval: ” Can you make a one-page table indicating Shanmatha days in each month and also Sukhla Panchami day for Adi Sankara, Anusham day for Maha Periyava and Avittam day for Our Periyava?” “Also, the Aradhanai days of all our Parampara Gurus – each month?”
I said, “If Periyava says, it should be possible”.
The attached one-pager was created! This last page of the Calendar contains Aradhana dates of each Guru in each month. There is a page listing our Guru lineage in the sequence of the Guru-peetam to refer to (it was there last year too). The shanmatha dates are given monthwise.
On my next trip, Bala Periyaval aked: “Can you add just one more page in the Calendar?” Only one page”. I said, “Periyava knows how to add a page!”.
He said : “Two things to be added – 1. Writeup about Cauvery Pushkaram, which will happen in September ; and 2. Jayaghosha. A set of shlokas, recited when Sankaracharys embarks on Yatra, arrives at a venue, ascends Simhasana, during temple honours and Puja & Annadana.”
I said reluctantly, I will try. Then He said, ” Otherwise print this in a separate sheet and distribute alongwith the calendar!”
Now, JAYAGHOSHA is part of the calendar. And a brief writeup on Cauvery Pushkaram as well.
Thank you sir for sharing the experience and this fine calendar for all of us.
