Daily Nectar : HE Who Plants, PLANS…

Periyava Planting Plant

A RARE PHOTO : What a blessed sapling to be planted from the hands of Saksath Parameswaran !!!

They say, “To Plant A Garden Is To Believe In Tomorrow…”.

Our Periyava, Tri-kala Gnani HE is, planted so many seeds foreseeing the dire situation of our ancient cultures and religious and spiritual practices of India that survived several millennia.

HE planted the seed for Veda Rakshanam. What we reap today is evident from so many emerging Veda Patasala and so many young Ganapatigal graduating out of it which would have otherwise been extinct by now.

HE planted the seed for Gho Rakshanam. What we reap today is evident from so many Ghoshala and Pinjrapole protecting cows and so many organizations actively fighting against cow slaughtering.

HE planted the seed for Shilpa Sastra Rakshanam. What we reap today is evident from so many temples being built with intricate sculptures and architecture, not only in India but across the globe.

Be it, Indian Constitution in which Article 26 was enshrined…
Be it, “Pidi Arusi” Scheme…
Be it, Punar Udharanam of dilapidated temples …
Be it, Gurukal and Oduvar sect’s well being…
Be it, Preserving Tamizh Vedham – Thirupavai & Thiruvembavai…
Be it, Preserving Panchagam – the most intricate knowledge form…
Be it, Rejuvenating and Strengthening the fading Traditions…
Be it, “Anaadhai Pretha Samskaaram”…

More importantly, Be it, “GURU BHAKTHI”, HE planted the seed of “Guru Bhakthi” by living as an embodiment of it.

In every facet of our life from birth to death, Periyava has planted a seed / a sapling in our hearts so that we all would know our deepest roots and gather strength from it for a Dharmic way of living. While what HE planted in our hearts are trying to sprout out, the tall weeds in our mundane life (Maya) keeps shadowing the beautiful garden of our lives!

Periyava, we pray to you ! Please remove the weeds from our mind and bless us to see the beautiful garden that YOU have planted.

    Maha periyava was all pervasive and made His mark in every sphere of life like Aadi Sankara Guru. Amazing how He , a self-made Guru, mastered all areas of knowledge, wisdom and experience and influenced every one who had His dharshan. And He still makes His presence felt.

  2. SKV Ramanan says

    Today you have planted the seed of Guru Bakthi in the hearts of many by informing the works of Sri periyava which is next to impossible for anybody other than Sri periyava. Sri Periyava Saranam
