2023-24 Shobakrut Calendar – Save this post!

Thanks to Sri Rangarajan of Kamakshi Seva Samithi and Sri Guruvayurappan for the share.

Few of my personal point of view, every kamakoti devotee should have this calendar at home – this has listed all jayanthi, aradhana of all three acharyas in addition to many religious important dates. Page #31 & #32 are the two pages I like the most. #31 is of critical importance that our Matam shows very clearly the unbroken lineage of our Guruparampara. It is very important for any guru Peetam. Some peetams have the details of the acharyas – some don’t. I always feel surprised and blessed how fortunate we are part of Kamakoti family. Page# 32 – list of all dates for shanmathas and aradhana for all gurus. I wonder how much time has been invested in creating and doing spoon-feeding for public like us to think about these acharyas or read a shloka about a devata on these days. Quite amazing!

Our sincere thanks to the samithi for their selfless contribution to Sri Matam.

I will add this post to the “Important Links” category on the right sidebar for easier access.

Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara

  1. Namaskaram,

    Typo… in the page # 30.

    “68th Acharya, Jagadguru Pujya Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswathi Swamigal, also
    called Sri Maha Periyaval came to the Peetam in 1907 and attained Siddhi in 1993”

    Reckon HH attained siddhi on 08/Jan/1994.

    Dear Team, Please look into this and rectify…

    Periyava Saranam…

  2. Is this link operational – http://www.kamakshisevasamithi.in/

    Thank you for this calendar, my sincere gratitude 🙏🏻

  3. Resp sir,
    In the post it is shown that Annabhishekam at GKC is performed by Kamakshi seva samithi.
    It is under Mahaperiava’s guidance after HH return in 1983 , Ganga water was brought for Periava Snanam, visit of Brahmasri Vedavinesa kurukkal of GangaiKonda Cholapuram for help from MahPeriava
    Annabhishekam was started by Sri Annabhishekam Committee in the year 1985 under the head of Purvasrama periava sishya Mettur Rajagopal ( Later Mettur Swamigal)
    A seperate Sri KANCHI KAMAKOTI ANNABHISHEKAM COMMITTEE TRUST is formed who perform not only ANNABHISHEKAM at GKC but also to other small village temples, other extend participation of other functions at GangaiKonda Cholapuram.
    For clarification and devotees not getting confused I am posting this as Managing Trustee of Sri Annabhishekam Committee.
    Kindly request Sri Kamakshi Seva Samithi to remove this point from their various activities.

    • Dear Sri Ravishankar – Thanks for letting me know. I will request them to read these comments and respond.

    • Dear Sir

      There is absolutely no doubt that the  Annabhishekam committee & founder member like you and other members have been doing a phenomenal job of organising the event year after year.

      We are all aware that Maha Periyava used to say that like a squirrel for Rama –  Individuals &  organisations, however small, should come together for a task to be more meaningful.

      ” வருஷா  வருஷம் அன்னாபிஷேகம் பண்ணுங்கோ” – I understand these were Mahaperiyava’s words, to all  Bhakthas who were around then( Possibly at Satara, when our Samithi’s founding Trustee Sri Krishnamoorthy visited Him).

      We are like a squirrel, participating in the Annabhighegam.

      We never meant that we are the  “Organisers”, but performers by participating.

      Jaya Jaya Sankara   Hara Hara Sankara

      Sri Kamakshi Seva Samithi
