Corporate Life to Vedic Life by Sri Shankar Ganesh

Thanks to Sri Sarma Sastrigal for the share. Big salute too Sri Shankar Ganesh for a big or monster step into the Vedic path. While making many of these changes the first thing that come in our way is our ego. Particularly coming from corporate life, having managed several millions of dollars of business, interacting with CxOs, adapting the ming is very hard. You have done that….Like Brahmasri Mani Dravid mama says, huge recognition and respect to Shankar’s wife to be supportive of this decision.
Wish you all the best and I am sure Mahaperiyava’s blessings are with you without which this wouldn’t have been possible.
Periyava Sharanam
ஸ்ரீ ஸ்ரீ மஹா பெரியவா அவர்கள்:
” மனஸ் இருந்தால் எதுவும் செய்யலாம். வேதம் என்றால் என்னவென்றே தெரியாமலிருந்து விட்டு, அப்புறம் ஒரு ஆவேசம் வந்து நாற்பது வயசுக்குமேல் அத்யயனம் பண்ணினவர்கள் இருக்கிறார்கள்…… ஆனபடியால் சிரத்தையும் சங்கல்பமுந்தான் முக்கியம்.”
இந்த ப்லவ புத்தாண்டில் தனது 38-வயதில் தான் பார்க்கும் பெரிய உத்யோகத்தை ராஜினாமா செய்து விட்டு வேத பாடசாலையில்;
GOD’S WAYS ARE INSCRUTABLE!
The real-life happening that I am narrating to you will appear to you like a fairy tale, but it’s one hundred percent true.
Sri Shankar Ganesh, a Finance professional in his late thirties has resigned his Management position at KPMG, Chennai and is moving with his family to Kumbakonam, to join a Veda patasala and begin a new chapter in his life, a new career in Veda Adhyayanam.
He has convinced the Adhyapakar at Sri Mantra Peeteswari Veda Patasala that age is no bar for education, and that he will gladly study together with boys in the age group of 10-15. He will observe all the requirements of Gurukula paddhati too!
Please watch the video that follows. Here’s a great human being who has shown how preserving our hoary tradition can be done even at the cost of a comfortable, indeed luxurious life! God bless him!
