uttarāṣhāḍhā bhikśhāvandanam – Time-sensitive

Dear readers,

Thanks to Sri Rajesh for the opportunity for us to participate.

Thanks to Sri Guruvayurappan for sharing the details for contributions in India.

https://kanchimuttseva.org/pujas.php – This is a beautiful site created by Sri Matam (I forgot about this site) – where one can donate for various pujas and other causes.

The Uttarashadha bhiksha vandanam this month falls in the holy month of margazhi. Suffice it to say that any saatvik act done in margazhi is magnified multiple times. Since many of you might have performed bhiksha vandanam in the past and continue to do, please consider this as a reminder in participating in this Bikshavandhanam. 

Please go to https://sites.google.com/view/uttarashadha-bhikshavandanam/home and you can offer bhiksha there.

In the link above, there is a section that talks about how a Bikshavandhanam is offered to Periyava – to me, it was very helpful to know our tradition.

Important information

  • Uttarashadha Bhiksha will be offered on Guruvāram Shukla Trittiya Thu Dec 17th AM IST
  • Please make sure to have your information (paypal will redirect you there – So PLEASE do not close the browser tab after payment) by Wednesday 9AM US EASTERN TIME. We have to send that information to Kanchi Peetam so that they can add to the sankalpam list.  
  • Some people have asked what the minimum amount is – it is explained in the page – but for brevity it is $51.00. Kindly keep that in mind when you transact on paypal..

  1. Can we offer any day for the rest of margazhi month?

  2. Is that PDF article given at the end of the website https://sites.google.com/view/uttarashadha-bhikshavandanam/home a part of some book? If yes, can the entire book be shared here? (Pages from 35 to 40 are given there.)

  3. Namaste –

    I got a dream last night where I was in conversation (don’t exactly remember what it was) with Sri Sri Bala Periyava and this morning I see this message. What a great coincidence?

    I have done my bit towards uttarāṣhāḍhā bhikśhāvandanam
