As Periyava devotees, instead of trying to do lot of things that are out of our reach, why can’t we follow some of His simple advices? For instance, reading daily panchangam – Periyava clearly mentions the benefits of reading this. I know that in most of the WhatsApp groups, someone posts daily panchangam that says today’s thithi, nakshatram, Ritu, yogam etc. If you are an android user, download an app called “Daily Panchangam” from mypanchang.com. (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.puraks.panchangam). I use this app daily. Use it for your Nithya puja (if you do) for sankalpam. If you don’t do Nithya puja, start one from tomorrow! There is no excuse for not doing one. This doesn’t have to be elaborate running for hours and it could be a quick 10 Mts puja – do it with sankalpam, do ashtotram and offer neivedihyam.
For prasadams, the list is simple for most part except chakarai pongal and wheat halwa etc. It is ok to skip them if they are difficult – at least we can do the rest.
For non-Tamil readers – Periyava had told few daily things to do too Brahmasri Vedapuri mama. This was taken from Dr Shyamala’s book but the source is from Smt Revathi Mami’s book.
- Sunday – Wheat Halwa – for Surya
- Monday – Ksheera (Milk) Annam – for Shiva
- Tuesday – Tamarind Rice – for Ambal
- Wednesday – Pongal – for Vishnu
- Thursday – Curd Rice – for Guru
- Friday – Chakarai Pongal – for Ambal
- Saturday – Sesame Rice – for Sani Bagawan
Benefits of reading daily panchangam:
(When you do proper sankalpam or read daily panchangam, you will have to read each for every day)
- thithi – for aishwaryam
- Vaaram – for long life
- nakshathram – for removing sins
- yogam – for removing health issues
- karanam – Kaarya Siddhi
This reading of daily panchangam takes under a minute!
Deivathin kural has everything. I am sharing whatever I read. You all watch interviews where devotees have shared what they learnt from Him. This is enough for our lifetime to follow. Instead of wasting time going around the world to explore new roads, let us start to walk on the road laid out by our acharyas – that will help us to get moksha. That is the easiest way to be their real devotees.
