Veda Vidya Gurukulam – 33rd Year

Hare Srinivasa,

Sri Veda Vidya Gurukulam, Srirangam under the leadership and guidance of Srimushnam Sri V Nagarajachar has been doing a great service to our Madhwa society by conducting the Summer classes for boys every year for 33 long years. Suktas, Vayustuthi and pooja procedures are part of the syllabus. There have been many cases of generations being benefitted by this noble initiative, as we are seeing many students whose fathers have studied earlier here. This year too, the classes were held from 25-Apr-12 to 12-May-12 and around 180+ students participated.

The highlight of this year is the Venue – the Gurukulam is back to Sri Raghavendra Swamy Mutt, Srirangam where the classes were initially conducted for many years. Boys have come from Andhra, Karnataka and even from Maharashtra apart from TN this year. Even wards of several famous pundits were also present this year and this only goes to show the greatness and significance of this gurukula and the kshetra mahima.

The valedictory function was held on 12-May @ Srirangam SRS Mutt and here are the links to view some photos taken during this occasion.

Sri Madhwa Vijaya – A Gist in English

Hare Srinivasa!

This is my first post in this year and I am very pleased to share with you all, details regarding a great book “Madhwa Vijaya – A gist in English” by Sixteen Eminent Scholars.  This is not a mere another spiritual book and instead a MUST HAVE in all our Madhwa homes. Sri V Nagarajachar of Srirangam has edited the book and we are all grateful to him for that. I consider myself blessed and this is going to be my most cherished New Year purchase for years to come.

Sri Sumadhwa Vijaya - Gist in English by 16 Eminent Scholars

Sri Sumadhwa Vijaya - Gist in English by 16 Eminent Scholars

As the editor has rightly called it as a “Devara Deepa“, this deepa needs to be available in all our homes,and more importantly one needs to light up this deepa every day for few minutes at least. As this book talks about the Vijaya(success stories) of our great Adi Guru Shriman Madhwacharyaru.

Many authors have contributed few Sargas in this collection including revered Kumbakonam Sri M Rama Rao, Sri C M Padmanabhachar and Sri V Subbachar. One of the most respected and a person of authority on Dvaita Philosophy, Sri B N K Sharma has written the wonderful introduction, which is a detailed one running into several pages. After all, as we read in SMV, that devatas including Adi Sesha came and attended our Acharyaru’s paata and this sacred Madhwa Vijaya is daily recited by all the Devatas even now. Such is the mahima of this maha kavya. Indeed I have already written a separate post on this in my blog last year and you can find it here. The introduction is simply superb and by the time you are done with reading it, Sri Sharma puts you on the top gear and you will not rest untill you complete reading all the Sargas. It would have been great and helpful if the entire moola Madhwa Vijaya slokas in Sanskrit is also included in the book for parayana purpose.

Please find the details below. Those of you who are interested in getting a copy may get in touch with the contacts provided. And I have a humble suggestion for your consideration: This book is an ideal thing to consider for gifting our relatives and family members and by doing that, you will get more punya for sure. Also the Madhwa Navami is fast approaching on 12-Feb-11 and let us all try to get this sacred deepa at our home by that time and start lighting it every day from that sacred day.
