Very valuable material. I have been gifted to see Shree Srivatsa Somadeva Sarma and used get his mandrippu for any small ailment during my childhood days. The golden days cannot be forgotten. Later in Dubai I happen to attend Shri.Kuppusamy and Shri.Venkat’s Sandhyavandanam event conducted at weekends and get much information for Nityakarma. At that time I happen to see a book with my Veda Class friend “Sandhyavandhanam” written by Srivatsa Somadeva Sarma which was used by my friends father and given to my friend. If I remember I had a copied it for my use. The detailed information as that he is conducting a pravachan is remarkable. Those books are really a guidelines and masterpiece which should be protected at any cost for our Dharma and Nityakarma anushtanangal.
Can I get a copy by e-mail, I was trying to buy but could not able to buy, bought a book written by Sri. Anna, still require the book, kindly help in sending the same.
Dear Mr. R.S Sarma,
I also live in Dubai and would like to know if there are anyone who is conducting such classes during the weekends ? I am trying to improvise my dictions and pronounciation and the correct Dik Vandamans on the course of Sandhyavandhanam..
Dear Shri Mahesh, Excellent material on Sandhyavandanam in Tamil – I can send you/anybody, who can contact me in my gmail “email@example.com”, a similar material written towards the end of 19th Century in English, which may be of interest.
Namaskaram, I would be interested to get a copy of the material “for the 19th Century in English”. firstname.lastname@example.org. —R.S.Sarma
CAN ANY PERIYAVA BHAKTA TRANSLATE THIS BOOK IN TO ENGLISH AND PUBLISH FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL OF US ??
This is a good book. The introductory portion [ பீடிகை, பக்கம் 16 வரை] gives the essence of the Vedic observances succinctly. The book also gives the meaning and explanations of the important words. Some of these explanations are uncommon, and hence valuable.eg. explanation of the name Vishnu.
An important feature of the book is the number of stotras it contains. These are usually not found in current publications. [Incidentally, impression of some of the pages is not clear/complete.]
There have been many publications on the subject. A generation ago, the book by Srivatsa Somadeva Sarma was considered authoritative, but it contained many items that could only be practised by a professional. One of the popular books people now follow is by Anna Subramanya Iyer , published by Sri Ramakrishna Math, Chennai. Its merit is that it simplifies matters, explains the prayoga ie how exactly the words are to be accompanied/followed by mudras or other actions., and explains things in such a way that they can be practised in the present day. It gives the meaning of all the mantras. There are of course minor differences based on family traditions
All things considered, this book by Chidambara Iyer is valuable , and some of its features are not found in other publications. We had not known about this book. Thanks for bringing it to our notice.
Jaya Jaya Shankara Hara Hara Shankara. An Excellent material. Thanks for sharing. May God bless you.
Do you have a English version or Telugu Version of the book.
