Yesterday, while I was driving I suddenly though about Athirudram Ravi and wondering why I haven’t heard from him about his annual event he conducts for all Jayanthi. I was slightly worried if he had canceled the program due to his health etc. Today I got the invitation from Ambi on Sri Ravi’s behalf.
As you all know, Ravi’s selection of venue for each of these Mahotsvam is so unique. More than the event, I was curious to know the venue. This time they have chosen this temple and the reason is mentioned in the invitation itself. Sri Ravi & his team have been doing these mahotsvam for more than a decade now. From blog, we have been lucky enough to offer our simple contribution to them for them. Regardless, knowing how authentic and sincere Ravi conducts these events with the blessings of our acharyas, I encourage you all to offer your contribution – no matter how small it is – to the event.
All devotees near Trichy, Thanjavur should attend this yegnam to receive the blessings of Mahaperiyava.
Hara Hara Shankara Jaya Jaya Shankara!
With Prayers to the lotus feet of Shree Chandra Sekarendra Saraswathi Swamigal and
Shri Kanchi Acharyas, the trust proposes to conduct
SriChandrasekarendra Saraswathi Swamigal’s 126th Jayanthi Mahotsava with Athirudram – Sathachandi Mahayagnyam at
the Holy abode of Shri Soundaryanayaki Samedha Uyyakondeswarar Temple complex alias the Mummoorthy Temple located at New Kariapatty village near Sengipatti on Trichy-Tanjore highway. The programme commences on 20th May 2019 and concludes on 30thMay 2019.
With the fervent anugrahams of HH Mahaperiava, the trust has organized these AthiRudrams and Sahasrachandis at every other known Adishtanams of the revered Acharyas of Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam and other Holy places related to Kanchi Mutt . And also at Ichangudy village the venerated birth place of Mahaswamigal and at Irulneeki village, the birth place of His Holiness Sri Sri Jayendra Saraswati Swamigal besides the programme was also organized at SheshadriSwamigal Adhishtanam, Thiruvannamalai and the recent one at Shri Jagathguru Vidyasthanam,Thiruvanaikoil.
Now we are fortunate to arrange this programme at this sacred village New kariapatti. While visiting the temple, one can see from a distance, a viswarupa of IYYANAR welcoming and blessing the devotees. The temple itself maintains its ancient glory with surrounding trees and earthly flooring inside the temple. The banks of the nearby pond left with their natural formation is serene and the lotus flowers give a calming effect. The road leading to the temple ends with the temple, indicating there is nothing beyond other than surrendering to the mummoorthies of the temple. At the entrance of the temple the guru peetam is consecrated from where Shri Gnanananda Giri Swamigal, Shri. Poondi Mahan and Shri. Maha Periyava bless devotees.
This temple became more sacred due to the visit of Sri. MahaPeriyava in 1947 , who had his snanam and Anushtanams at the Temple pond. The Living God had said that the temple theertham is more sacred than that of Kasi. He had distributed Sivapuranam books to the devotees of the village. Even today the humble devotees recite parayanams from those books during Prodoshams.
This 126thJayanthi Mahotsavam will be held at the Holy Feet of all the three Mahans.
