Salem Brahmasri Sankaran Sastrigal reached the abode of Periyava


I am extremely sad to let you all know that Sri Sankaran Sastrigal, son of Sri Salem Ravi mama and sishya of Musiri Dikshitar died of a massive heart attack in Bilaspur. Apparently, he went there to attend a Maha Rudram event. As many know Sri Bilaspur Swamigal is very close to their family and often stays there for chaturmasyam etc. Many Periyava devotees know him through his devotion for Periyava and his wide contacts in social media also sharing lot of messages on sanatana dharma etc.

It is devastating to see young Veda pundits facing a sudden end. No one can I shine what the family is going through at this time. We all pray Periyava to give lot of strength for the grieving family members and bless the departed soul.

Our deepest condolences to the family.

Periyava Sharanam.

  1. There is a saying that ” those whom God’s love die young” and their presence in this world is decided by their present & past karma. With his attachment to Paramachatya and devotion His Holiness would have decided his existence. Let us all pray to Maha periyava to give enough strength to bear the loss to his family and nargadhi to the departed soul. Jaya Jaya Sankara.
