Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara – As usual Sowmya sent me her drawings for Sri Sankara Charitham posting this week. As many of you aware, her drawings are based out on the crux or the key message of the chapter. In the upcoming chapter Sri Periyava talks about Bhagawadpadhal’s Avataram as a Sannaysi and how Adi Aacharyal went across Bharatha Desam to reestablish Dharma wiping out 72 non-vedic religions in the process. We all know that Bhagawathpadhal also covered many Kshethrams and sang immemorable slokas and sthothras on those devathas. Below are some of the important and popular Kshethrams that Bhagawath Padhal visited which Sowmya has captured fabulously in her drawing.
Can you list the names of these Kshethrams starting clockwise (from bottom left to bottom right)? I failed miserably in this test and take it as a lesson to visit these Kshethrams to indulge more in Bhagawath (Padhal) Smaranai 🙂
Will post the answer on Saturday’s Sri Sankara Charitham post. Rama Rama
Pancha Prana Linga Kshetrams a.k.a. Pancha Sankara Matha Kshetrams – (From Top to bottom in clockwise direction around Bhagawan Adi Sankaracharya Swamygal)
