Vedha Mantras

Many of us,when priests  recite mantras,could not understand the meaning of it.So it is better to learn certain mantras that are often recited.If possible learn Sanskrit to a basic level.Here two mantras are given.Sri.Ramakrishna mutt(Belur - calcutta & its related other state mutts),Tirupparaiturai Sri.Ramakrishna Tapovanam  are publishing Sanskrit translated Tamil books.திருப்புகழ் ,தேவாரம் ,திருவாசகம், திருப்பாவை,திவ்ய   பிரபந்தம் ,திருமந்திரம் இவையெல்லாம் தமிழ் மந்திரங்கள்.இன்றும் திருப்பதியில் ஆண்டாளின்  திருப்பாவைதான் காலையில் முதலில் ஓதப்படுகிறது. Sri.Ganapathy's picture from the  book" Thiruppugazh anbargal  New Delhi & Vedha Mantras from the book "Vedha Mandhirangal" authored by swamy Aasudhoshanandar .
