With Sri Periyavas’ anugraham and with the blessings of Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peeṭadhipati, His Holiness, Jagadguru Pujyasri Shankara Vijayendra Saraswathi Shankaracharya Swamigal, Jagadguru Sri Adi Shankara Śukla Panchami Pooja initiative has commenced from last Shankara Jayanthi with a sankalpam to perform a short pooja and Shankara stuti parayanam on Shukla panchami days at a convenient time. Please find Pooja information @ https://sriadishankarastutis.org/sri-adi-sankara-sukla-panchami/
As you would notice, the plan is to do parayanam of one composition of Adi Shankara each month. This month its Lalitha Pancharatna Stotram. As the name indicates it has 5 shlokas and 1 phalashruthi. It is in the form of Prathasmaranam – Remembering Amba in the morning as the first thing after waking up. Its an easy shloka to commit to memory.
Please spread the word around and let us all join together to offer our reverential pranams to Jagadguru Adi Shankara’s lotus feet every month.
Date and Time Panchami thithi:
Aug 12, 5:55 am – Aug 13, 4:13 am EST – New York Time.
Aug 12, 3:25 pm – Aug 13, 1:43 pm India time. Please do the pooja during the thithi at your convenience.
