Thanks to Sri Sivakumar for sharing this. The concept of doing Bikshavandhanam in Sri Matam by different sects of people is an age-old practice. While these have been happening without any break till today, the level of participation by everyone has been very poor. I know in some Bikshavandhanam, there were handful of people who go to Sri Matam and participate.
On one hand, we talk about voting for BJP, protecting our culture, Hinduism etc and on the other hand, we fail to show it in action. Sri (Bala) Periyava is taking lot of effort in energizing people to take part in strengthening our culture by bringing people together. Unity is strength. Participating and bringing our next generation into this is very important in today’s context – when there are very serious threats against our religion. These kind of bikshavandhanams are great avenues to offer our bakthi and service to Kanchi Acharyas! So, please do your best to register and show in large numbers for the Bikshavandhanam and make it a grand success!
Hats off to you Sri Sivakumar for taking lead on this great kainkarya!
Now read on Sivakumar’s message…..
Goal: We have 4 subsects in Brahmin lineage namely-Brahacharanam, Vadamal, Vathimal and Ashtasahasram . PujyaShri Vijayendra Periyava has ordained Shri Siva Kumar of Califormia to collect information about Brahacharnam sub-sect brahmanas , so that they are included into Brahacharana Bhiksha Vandanam. The intention of PujyaShri Periyava is to be more inclusive and get contact with more Brahacharnam from a Shrimatam Perspective. Please find attached shrimukham that specifies name and full details of this effort.
