  1. Hello

    I noticed you wrote “Acharyas” why? Does it kind of demeans your current peetathipathi ? We say gurubyo Namah and not in plural , right?

    Maybe elders can opine on appropriate way with backing from our sruthi and smrithi and sampradaya

    • Dear Anon, let me explain.

      While we say ‘Acharya’ in Tamil as ஆசார்யா அவர்கள், ஸ்வாமிகள், etc. When we use plural in Tamil it becomes a respectful word. As a practice, ‘Acharya’ also becomes ‘Acharyas’ and there is nothing to do with Struthi, Smruthi, Samparadaya, whatsoever. Hope this would have convinced you!

    • In fact when we say Sri Gurubhyo nama:, it is plural according to samskritam grammar. If it’s singular we have to say Sri Gurave nama: One of the reasons is royal plural. When we refer to elders it’s custom to refer them in plural. Another reason is because of Guru Parampara. In our tradion, there is no Stand-alone guru. A given guru will always have a guru for himself and the parampara will begin with Bhaghavan himself. That’s why we always refer to Acharyas in plural, especially when they belong to traditional Acharya Peetham.
