Festival Kolam

This is Navarathri Festival Kolam day 2.

Sringeri Sri.Chandrasekara Bharati Swamigal's teachings.

One devotee was speaking with Sri.Chandrasekara Bharati Swamigal ( Sringeri Mutt) .He commented that people in the world had become very bad .Swamigal replied"  the world is remaining  as it is ". If all all are good in the world ,we call it as "heaven".if bad,then we call it as "hell".As both good & bad  are combined together, we call it as "world ".Swamigal continued the speech.In Satya yuga Devas & demons lived separately.Demons were thinking that the body as the soul,& they tortured others because of their egoism(Ahankara).Devas were interested in pursuing spiritual path,having the aim of reaching or realising God ,applied their mind in devotion to God.Since they were in separate world ,there were no fighting in between them.During Ramayana period both of them lived in the same world.Ravana &  his associates lived in Lanka , where as Sri.Rama & his people  lived in Ayotya.Demons interfered in the life of Devas  & cau…

Kanva Maharishi's teachings.

Sages  lead most disciplined life.Most of them were married.They selected a natural location mostly by a river side surrounded by mountains to set their asrams( small huts made up of bamboos ).In addition to their routine life , they also taught Vedha Sastras to the students.Ruling kings & parents used to offer the essentials to run the asram.Their wives took care of the children  studying in the asram as if their own children.They have practised  what they preached.Speaking satyam (truth) is their strength & they feared none.Some rishis used to send their children to other rishi's asram .They thought that if they study with their parents,they may expect some lenience.Such were their honesty.Kanva maharishi was the foster father of Shakundalai  who married the king Dushyanta.The son of this couple  ,Bharathan was  a great warrior & honest king,He was the first ruler of our country.Our country was named after him -"Bharath".Kanva Maharishi tells the king Dusy…

Auvaiyar the great Tamil poet & God Ganesha

As we celebrate Ganesh Chadhurthi tomorrow ,let us think about the great woman poet Auvaiyar  who lived  during Tamizh sanga period ( C.E 1st century) along with the great poet Thiruvalluvar.After this period, Another  Auvaiyar ( woman poet) lived  during 13th century Chozha  kingdom along with poets Kambar & Ottakkoothar.Many are aware about "Kamba Ramayanam" written by  Kambar,the great literary work in Tamizh telling about the life history of "  Sitarama ",Hanuman & Ravana.Ottakkoothar used to sing for Gold coins . Auvaiyar mingled with  ordinary people of Tamilnadu.She  did not like rich people  who  were misers & did not  help poor people.She was  leading    a   saintly life.She  always travelled from one place to another .She was widely respected  for her talent in Tamizh language by the kings.Many a time she has acted  like an adviser between  kings  who were trying  to wage war with one another   & successfully stopped the war.It is  said t…
