It is enough if He sees us!


av223_pointing_at_the_camera.jpg

Yesterday, I attended a satsang where Sri Kamakshi Swamigal, peetathipathi of Sri Swarna Kameshwari Peetam, Nanganallur, Chennai, was giving a discourse on a topic -“Acharam”. He was explaining how our puja and other anushtanams alone aren’t enough and why we should pay equal attention to acharam also. He shared some pramanams from veda, upanishad, bagawad Gita etc on this topic.  He also talked about how Mahaperiyava spent His entire life insisting us all to follow acharam on top of whatever we do. Sri Kamakshi Swamigal has a background of a vaideeka and associated with our Sri Matam & all three Periyavas for quite some time.

During that discourse, he very nicely said that today the whole universe is trying to catch Mahaperiyava’s feet – many still feel that they didn’t take advantage of the opportunity when Periyava was in sthula sareeram and many have lifetime disappointment of not having His darshan ever. Swamigal nicely concluded that more than we seeing Him, it is sufficient and very important that He sees us. The word “see” has a deeper meaning – not just the physical action of seeing during His lifetime. It goes beyond that – even today.

How will He see us? Doing things that are of important to Him…By doing our achara, anushtanams as per our sampradayams, doing sat-karyams as per our dharma, being socially and religiously participative. He talked about doing anatha-pretha-samskaram.

He also talked about Brahmasri Vedapuri mama and his bakthi towards Periyava and how offering our namaskaram to mama itself is a great blessing from Mahaperiyava.

Let us pray Him to bless us all vairagyam to have undeterred faith and bakthi and maintain the acharams.

I saw someone recorded the discourse – I will try to collect them and share if possible.

Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara!

      • SORRY.’SIR THERE ARE NUMEROUS INSTANCES OF PERIYAVA APPROVING PERSONS GOING TO FOREIGN PLACES. IN ONE CASE PERIYAVA HELPED ONE TO GET FUND’S FOR ANNA MALAI COLLEGE STUDIES.,THE PERSON WENT ON FOR FURTHER STUDIES IN NYC. WITH SCHOLARSHIP WITH BLESSING OF PERIYAVA. IN ONE CASE PERIYAVA DIDN’T APPROVE THIS.!!!! PLEASE REFER TO H. H. JEYAR. INCIDENT.

  4. Please give contact number of Sastrigal if you know in Pittsburgh,PA. for Avani Avittam.

  5. Come to think of it, from the moment we wake up , to going to bed, all activities are aacharam related. It was/is so beautifully practised as a habit / way of life. Even now ok only by reading or through teaching. But model? Already because of various contrainsts even the elders have accustomed to diluted practices. Its like one of the treasures lost, sadly. But still discourses/upanyasams are available on Aacharam, anushtanams by scholars to be made use of if one is seriously interested.

    BTW, any Periayava / kamatchi temple /sathsang in or around Pittsburgh, PA ? Have seen Sri Venkateshwara temple .

  6. மாமி நமஸ்காரம்
    நீங்கள் கடை பிடித்த ஆசாரத்தை
    எங்களுக்கும் கூறினால் நன்றாக இருக்கும்.உங்கள் மெயில் ID முடிந்தால்
    தெரிய படுத்துங்கள்.

    நன்றி

  7. என் போன்ற முதியவர்களுக்குத் தான் ஆசாரம் என்பதின் அர்த்தம் அதனை எப்படி நடைமுறைப் படுத்தவேண்டும் என்பது நன்றாகத் தெரியும். ஏனெனில் சிறு வயது முதலே அதற்குப் பழக்கப்பட்டிருக்கிறோம்…பழக்கப்படுத்தப்பட்டிருக்கிறோம்! எங்களின் வாழ்க்கையின் ஓர்ப குதி ஆசாரம் என்பது! காலை எழுந்ததிலிருந்து இரவு உறங்கச் செல்லும் வரை கடைப்பிடிக்க நிறைய
    விஷயங்கள் நமக்கு இருக்கிறது. இந்தக் காலத்தில் அதன் அர்த்தமோ ,முக்யத்வமோ யாருக்கும் தெரியாது. விஞ்ஞானமும் ஆசாரமும் ஒன்றுக்கொன்று தொடர்புடையது, சுத்தமான பழக்க வழக்கங்களைத்தான் ஆசாரம் என்று வேறு முறையில் சொல்கிறோம்.
    யாரும் கற்றுக்கொள்ளவோ புரிந்து கொள்ளவோ முன் வராதது பரிதாபத்துக்குரியது! சங்கரா…பெரியவா நம்முடன் சூக்ஷ்ம ரூபத்தில் ஸதா நம் நடவடிக்கைகளைக் கண்காணித்து வருவதுடன் நமக்கு அருள் பாலிக்கவும் செய்கிறார்! மஹேஷ் நீ இப்போது இந்தியாவில் இருக்கிறாயா?

  8. It will be great if you could write up and share what was spoken on acharam. Thanks a million in advance.

  9. For the past few months we have been publishing what Maha Periyava said on Aacharam in Periyava Golden Quotes. Many key points can be taken from there. The first and foremost Aacharam Periyava emphasizes is Aagara Niyamam (regulation of our food). Strongly condemns eating out. If we can follow that the rest will follow suit. Rama Rama

  10. Darsan can be possible in one day. First Tiruvarur Then, Nagapattinsm Vedaranyam,Tirunallar,Tirukarayi, Tirukolili then Tiruvaimur

  11. The audio would be nice but could you pl share some key issues of aacharam listed by the Sri Kamakshi Swamigal, Say at least some 10 daily items and 10 periodic items

  12. Hi everyone. We are planning to visit the Saptha vidanga sthalam in nov/ dec this year. I understand it can be done in 1 day. We plan to halt in Thiruvarur see Thyagaraja/ kamalambal first. Where do we go next and then subsequent ones. We plan to go to Thiruchendur from there. Please advise the best route to follow and also the temple timings. Thanks.

  13. Very nice to attune to acharam described by Mahaperiawa. We should emulate from his Devine voice.

    Please inform if any anushtana mandapam to adore Sri Maha Periawa in Fremont in California.

    Thanks to know
