OM SRI GURUBHYO NAMAHA
In 1981, HH Sri Chandrasekarendra Saraswathi Swamigal, affectionately called Mahaperiyaval, directed a few devotees to form a trust that would perpetuate the following every year:
1. Perform the Aradhana of Paramaguru, the 67th Acharya, HH Sri. Mahadevendra Saraswathi Swamigal;
2. Organise food ( Annadhanam) for 3 days for all devotees attending Vyasa puja.
3. Perform Annabhishekam for the Lord at Gangaikonda Sozhapuram every year.
With His Blessings, a trust named Sri Kamakshi Seva Samithi was formed in 1981 to fulfill His directive. Since then, the Samithi has been faithfully following the directives of Sri Maha Periyaval and the above activities have been performed year after year without fail.
Last year (2016), Vyasa Puja was performed on 19th July and Annadhanam was done for 5 days at Vijayawada. We participated in the Annabhishegam at Gangaikonda Sozhapuram on 14th November. The Samithi also participated in the Kumabhishegam of Gangaikonda Sozhapuram Temple on 2nd February 2017.
This year, the Paramaguru Aradhana was on Monday, 27th Feb, 2017 and our Acharyals performed the Aradhana in Kanchipuram. As usual, our Samithi participated. The Akshathai and Prasadham was sent to all the members of the Samithi. The next event will be Annadhanam for 3-5 days during Vyasa Puja, which falls on 9th July 2017.
In order to continue the activities as also to include some more initiatives, the Samithi, under the guidance of HH Jagadguru Sri Jayendra Saraswathi Swamigal, and HH Sri Vijayendra Saraswati Swamigal, continuously enhances the number of members and also the Corpus. Under the guidance and initiative of our Acharyas, our Calendar has been distributed to all the members during the last 4 years. This year, the Calendar will be distributed before the Tamil New Year, Hevilambi.
Keeping in mind the squirrel story that Sri Maha Periyaval always used to narrate, saying that a small contribution from several devotees makes the task more meaningful, the Samithi requests devotees to come forward in large numbers and become members and thus be part of an initiative that Sri Maha Periyaval had started.
We look forward to continuing to fulfil Mahaperiyaval’s wishes as also more initiatives with the blessings of our Gurus.
Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara.
