Brahmasri Parasuramachar , a Nithya Agnihothri whose every breath was Vedham merged with Maha Periyava today. He lived in Sirugumani and managed the Sirugumani Patashala as directed by Maha Periyava.
To Him, Periyava is Prathyaksha Deivam. Being a Madhwar, when he utters such statements from the bottom of his heart, we are at loss of words to describe his devotion towards Periyava.
Veda Rakshanam has been Periyava’s very life breath. And, no doubt that Periyava chose Brahmasri Parasuramachar to reinvigorate Madhwa Rig Vedic Tradition. In Sirugumani, he has prepared over 100s of Rig Veda Madhwa Vidhyarthis. He had lived a very simple life as prescribed by Maha Periyava and also has inspired and insisted his Vedapatasala vidhyarathis to lead simple and true brahmanic way of life.
He conducted Soma Yagam in Feb 2012.
He would continue to live forever through his Patashala and the precious Madhwa Rig Vedic Vidhyarthis who come out of it.
Jaya Jaya Sankara, Hara Hara Sankara
An article from FB:
A Rig Vedic scholar,brahma sri PadmanAbhAchAr had his darshan during the chAtur mAsyA period.PeriyavA asked him if he had received the vidvat sambhAvanA given by the Mutt to the vedic scholars coming to the Mutt during chAtur mAsyA.The scholar replied in the negative. PeriyavA asked if he had undergone veda adhyayana.The pundit replied that he had, but had forgotten many portions and was therefore not eligible to receive the sambhAvanA. PeriyavA asked him to recite a particular portion of Rig Veda.The pundit recited the entire portion correctly. PeriyavA directed His assistants to bring the sambhAvanA and hand it over to the pundit with all the other honours due to vedic scholars.Persons following MAdhwA philosophy generally did not give as much importance to veda adhyayanA as they gave to the shAstrAs. PeriyavA directed that a pAta sAlA should be opened by the Veda Rakshan Nidhi Trust at Sirugamani, the village to which the pundit belonged and only MAdhwA boys be enrolled for adhyayanA in the pAta sAlA.Accordingly a pAtAsAlA was opened and vidhyArthIs were enrolled. Brahma Sri PadmanAbhAchAr didn’t stop with this. To show his gratitude to PeriyavA , he put all his three sons in the niyama-adhyayana scheme of VRN Trust and all these sons became gurus- two in the pAtasAlAs run by the VRN Trust and another in a pAtasAlA run at MantrAlayam, under the auspices of Sri RAghavendra Mutt.
Brahma Sri PadmanAbhAchar led an austere and simple life and started performing nitya agni hotrAs and later several yagnAs .Just a few days after he had performed a yagnA called VAjapeya yAga he came to MAhAgaon for darshan of PeriyavA.
The mahA rAjA of Sandur accompanied by his family members and assistants arrived at MAhAgAon for darshan and waiting for 3 days to meet Periyava. At this time, Brahmasri Padmanabhachar and his family came to get darshan of Periyava. Periyava asked him to leave the city immediately and asked the mutt servants to accompany them to the city border. PeriyavA had asked His assistants to get an umbrella used by temples when the deities were taken out on procession. Such a one which was heavy and very big was brought. Periyava told the mahArAja , that according to the shAstrasand traditions, when a vedic scholar conducts vajapeya yagnA it was the duty of the mahArAja to carry the umbrella over the head of the scholar as a mark of respect and honour to the pundit. He asked the mAharAjA,”Would you carry the umbrella over Sri PadmanAbhAcryA and his wife accompanying them from the city limit to my abode and from here to the place, where nityAgnihotri, vAjapeya yaji brahma sri PadmanAbhAchAr is staying?”The mahArAjA not only readily accepted the command; but he also offered to construct a residential house for the pundit.
