Thanks Ambi for the share. Looks like this came back in 70s – I am guessing. Periyava gives a beautiful blueprint of how to lay the foundation for next generations. I still remember several of His upadesams were followed in my place where I grew up. In today’s situation, while money is not the issue to build a temple or school etc, getting the next generation early in their life to adopt to these is the huge challenge – applies to vedapatasala also. I still remember few years back Sri (Bala)Periyava was telling someone that “Patasala irukku ….kuzhandhaikalthaan illa”.
Let us pray Lord Dakshniamurthy to bless us all to get back to our roots.Hindu Nalvalzhi Mandram
