வேத ரக்ஷணத்தை அடுத்த சந்ததிக்கு ஜீவிய கர்மமாக, ஆயுட்காலப் பணியாக வைக்க முடியாவிட்டால் கூடப்போகிறது. எட்டு வயசிலிருந்து ஆரம்பித்து அப்புறம் பத்து வருஷங்களுக்கு தினம் ஒரு மணி இளம்பிள்ளைகளுக்கு வேத மந்திரங்களிலும் பிரயோகங்களிலும் வகுப்பு நடத்தப் பேட்டைக்கு பேட்டை கூட்டுறவு அடிப்படையில் ஏற்பாடு பண்ணுங்கள் என்கிறேன். இதுதான் எனக்கு வாஸ்தவமான கனகாபிஷேகம், உத்ஸவம் எல்லாம். அநாதியான வேத தத்துவம் அதன் மூல ரூபத்திலேயே என்றென்றும் பிரகாசித்துக் கொண்டிருக்க வேண்டும். இந்த ஜோதியை, தீவர்த்தியை, தூக்கிப் பிடித்துக் கொண்டிருக்கிற மசால்ஜி (சேவகன்) யாகப் பிராம்மணன் இருக்க வேண்டும். இப்போதுள்ள சமஸ்தப் பிரஜைகளுக்கும் எதிர்கால வாரிசுகளுக்கும் (posterity) இவன் செய்தே தீரவேண்டிய கடமை இது. – ஜகத்குரு ஸ்ரீ சந்திரசேகரேந்திர சரஸ்வதி ஸ்வாமிகள்
Even if Veda Rakshana cannot be assigned as livelihood for the next generation, in every neighborhood, arrange for classes daily for an hour on Veda and its practices for children starting from the age of eight and have it continued further for a period of ten years. This is the real Kanakabishekam and Uthsavam (celebrations) for me. The doctrines of Veda which is there from time immemorial should always shine in its original form. Brahmin should be the holder of the lamp- the light. This is his compulsory duty towards the entire present generation and also for posterity. – Jagadguru Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswathi Swamigal
Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara – On this auspicious Guru Varam I’m blessed and privileged to post about a Veda Patasa that started yesterday in Gangai Kondachozhapuram. Few days back I posted about Veda Rakshanam and Sri Periyava explaining in detail about how protecting Vedas is paramount for our Aathma and Loka Kshemam. In this context it is extremely important to sustain the existing Veda Patasalas and support the upcoming ones. Many Brahmins like me have abandoned Vedas which should be their life time profession per Shastras. As a bare minimum atonement let us consider sparing at least a little bit of our earnings every month in supporting these Veda Patasalas. Below is the Sri Mukam from our Periyava and the appeal for help for this Patasala. This Patasala is very special in the sense that all the Vidhyarthis who are studying here will be supporting many ancient Siva temples that are currently in dire need of Siva Agama trained Archakas for doing Nithya Pujas. All the details including contribution information is provided below in the flyers.
Many Jaya Jaya Sankara to Shri S. Ravisankar, Annabishega Committe member for sharing this info.
Sri Periyava Thiruvadi Sharanam.
Background – Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam Vaidhika Agama Patasala
Our Acahrya Kanchi Kamakoti Peetathipathi His Holiness Sri Sankara Vijayendra Saraswati Swamigal during his Sri Matam Camp at Gangai Konda Chozhapuram in the year 2019 felt the need to train many students in the holy tradition of Shiva Agama and Vedas. The vast number of temples in and around Gangai Konda Chozhapuram are unable to be maintained due to the unavailability of Shivacharyars for even conducting the Nithya Poojas, let alone special poojas. Even the Gangai Konda Chozhapuram temple being a very large temple the Shivacharyar alone is unable physically to perform all the poojas regularly at all the Parivara Devathas while concentrating on the main murthy Sri. Brahadeeswara
In view of this and also ensuring that Poojas at the Brahadeeshwara Temple are performed and also many students are provided a proper livelihood as Shivacharyars Acharya ordered us to start a Shiva Agama Patasala in the building available for use during Annabhishekam.
The Kala Ranjani Trust which maintains the Building for Annabhishekam purposes was reformed with Mutt representatives in the Trust and the plan was set in motion.
The inauguration Pooja of the Veda Patasala was performed on January 17th 2021 in the traditional manner with Homas and poojas (Few pics below). However, due to the Lockdown and also the reluctance of Parents to send their wards for the Patasala classes could not be started then and even the infrastructure facilities could not be completed then due to lock down restrictions and impaired movement.
Sri Periyava has now redirected us firmly that the Patasala should start functioning from November 24th 2021 onwards and has also given his Shri Mukham for this purpose. We have now recruited 15 students and 3 Adhyabakars led by Shivasri K. Balasubramnian Shivacharyar (Former Chief in Pazhani Murugan temple), a learned scholar par excellence in Shiva agama and Veda and the courses will include Agama, Veda, Thirumurai and Sastras. Common subjects like English, Maths and Tamil will be taught by Local Teachers who have been contacted.
Now, we request you to kindly go through the appeal attached and may please consider supporting this Noble cause and help us.
