“Maasaanaam maargasirshoham” says Krishna in Bhagavad Gita. The month of Margazhi marks the usha:kaalam or Brahma muhurtham for Devas, and is very auspicious for pooja, japam, nama sankeerthanam and other austerities. The moment we hear Margazhi, we are reminded of Thiruppavai and Thiruvembaavai, nagara sankeertananam aka veedhi bhajanai and of course Ven pongal.
Mahaperiyava has taken it as his mission to publicize and encourage the chanting of Thiruppavai and Thiruvembavai by all. There were competition organized in schools to encourage learning of the two paavais by school children. Last year we conducted online camps for teaching Tiruppavai and Thiruvembaavai to kids and we had the fortune of Sri Periyava gracing us with his live anugraha bhashanam during beginning and the concluding sessions of the camp despite His busy schedule in Margazhi month. Such is the importance our Periyava gives for Thiruppavai and Thiruvembavai learning and parayanam.
As per His wishes we will chant Thiruppavai and Thiruvembavai daily at 5:30 AM EST starting Dec 16th Thursday till the end of Margazhi. The whole parayanam will take about 45 mins. Interested ppl can join the parayanam through Zoom.
