Dear Readers,
In our last posting we concluded the topic BHAGHAWAT
GUNANUBHAVANGAL in which we made an attempt to describe the qualities
of Lord Krishna The Supreme Personality. And we told you about our next topic so without further keeping you all guessing here it goes...

GURU PARAMPARA PRABHAVAM - THE GREATNESS OF THE LINEAGE ACHARYA/GURUS

LAKSHMINATHA SAMAARAMBHAAM
NAADHA YAAMUNA MADHYAMAAM
ASMADHACHAARYA PARYANDHAAM
VANDHE GURU PARAMPARAAM

The hierarchy of Sri Vaishnava Guru Parampara starts from Lakshminathan-The Supreme Lord Sriman Lakshminarayan-The first acharya of Vaishnavism-starting from vedakalam;the time of vedas.In kaliyuga in the living memory it starts from Sri NATHA MUNIGAL/SRI YAMUNAI THURAIVAR (ALAVANDAR) SRI RAMANUJAR and his 72 disciples(72 Simhasanathipathis), Sri MANAVALAMAMUNIGAL and his 8 disciples,THOOPUL SRI VEDANTHA DESIKAR and his disciples and so on and finally resting on the present individual Acharya.(Asmathacharya Paryandham)The great Ramanuja 1017AD a thousand years before has established the "VAISHNAVA SIDDHANTA" for the benefit of the people of this age and propogated it through his disciples and by himself throughout the lengths and breadths of India and earned the name of 'Sri Vaishnava Darsana Pravarthagal' - one who made the tenets of Sri Vaishnavism acceptable to all and made all of them to be the devotees Bhagwan Srimann Narayan. Even today the sishya parampara are keeping the Sri Vaishnava Doctrines intact and propogating to "the seekers of Bhagwat Anugraham".


The uniqueness of Sri Ramanuja's Achrayathvam lies in the fact that he made no discrimination between high caste born and the low caste born or other inequalities arising out of birth, wealth, upbringing etc. but gave importance only to the devotion of the bhaktas to the Supreme Lord Srimann Narayan and the unreserved acceptance of the philosophy of Vaishnavism and its propogation. He made known the secret and sacred "Ashtakshara Mantra" of Sriamann Narayana from the roof top of Tirukoshtiyur temple to all the assembled people and earned the wrath of his Guru 'Tirukoshtiyur Nambigal' - When confronted by his Guru why he has done this sinful act the great Ramanuja replied "by this sinful act if I go to hell it does not matter - but by hearing the Ashtakshara Mantra those who have heard
and recited that will go to heaven (Vaikuntham) which is much more profitable than the one individual's sufferings." Such is the unsurpassed compassion for the oppressed and the down trodden shown by the great Sri Ramanujacharya. He was the first Guru whose lineage are still today upholding his ideals to the extent possible in the present day world of the 21st century.



Reverting to my Acharya PoojyaShri Shri Amma of Radhekrishna satsangam
to follow......Poojya Shri Shri Amma of Radhekrishna sathsangam is my Guru, Guide, Philosopher. My Guru is nearest to my heart and soul and nearest to my dwelling place also.When you surrender unto my Guru's feet you are sure of your sufferings coming to an end - not necessarily at once- in fact such expectations are not in consonance with the natural way of proceedings of men and matters. Everything has a time to happen and will happen only at that time howsoever you try to advance it. Time and tide wait for no man. This is true for all times -so man only has to wait for the time to happen anything good or bad. PoojyaShri Shri Amma can only guide you how to approach the effects of time to be advantageous to you - my Guru's advice always will be to place everything under the lotus feet of Sri Lord Krishna - Sri Radhekrishna to be precise and invoke His blessings by constantly chanting the all powerful sure result oriented Nama
RADHEKRISHNA KRISHNARADHE, RADHEKRISHNA KRISHNARADHE - the ultimate Phaladatha - Giver of fruits of your work , actions. My Guru's liberality, nobility, generosity is unparallel. Knowing fully well that the seeker is not firm in his commitment yet by the generosity inherently within makes my Guru to offer/try once more with prayers to
Lord Radhekrishna for the success of the seekers effort. My Guru's Saulabhyam - easy accessability is to be believed - at all reasonable times you can approach my Guru with any of your problems.My Guru will patiently hear all your problems/sufferings and give worldly wise advice besides asking you to recite "KRISHNANAMAJAPAM" so that your actions will be fruitful.



When you sit under the benign Thiruvadi(foot) you feel the grace of the Guru even though not a word is uttered except 'Radhekrishna' by way of admitting you inside to be nearer-both physically and mentally-to the Guru.You may start talking or you may sit in silence-when you are silently sitting under the feet of Guru after some pause,Guru will suddenly speak to you-not direct but to the void space as if addressing the OMNIPRESENT of your problems-you will be surprised to hear the utterances of Guru somehow directly related to your problems about which you want to open your heart to the Guru and seek redressal.Mind reading-not a bad idea to attribute it to the Guru.-because my Guru is the representative of the OMNIPRESENT.No wonder that your problems are discussed without your telling them.My Guru's constant matter of fact statement is chant plenty of Nama-Namajapam Naraiya Chollungal-My Guru by virtue of the position occupied can command you but will not-It is a soothing talk.One will always have to say-yes I will.Whether you are actually doing the Namajapam or not is a different matter.If you do,the beneficiary is you.If you donot do,ultimate loser is you and you alone.


My Guru is unaffected by both the propositions.My Guru'sadvice is for your upliftment.So it is upto you to act.My Guru's suggested remedy need not necessarily be acceptable or likeable to you.This is not a concern to the Guru.Bitter pills are given to the
child for early complete cure.So also what kind of pills-sweet, bitter,hard to digest etc is required is determined based on the required remedy.So one has to understand things in its proper perspective.


You may wonder why of all the lords names,the Krishna namam is selected for all the remedy,upliftment,enjoyment of reasonable wordly pleasure and deriving of reasonable worldly benefitsby my Guru?


To know the answer wait for our next blog posting on 7th February. Until then Radhekrishna.....

BHAGAWAT GUNANUBHAVANGAL (QUALITIES OF LORD KRISHNA)

Dear readers,
Last time we concluded the topic Acharya/Guru and His Relevence in SriVAISHNAVA SIDDHANTAM.This new posting is about the qualities of the Supreme Being about WHOM we have talked in the previous topic.That Supreme Being is none other than the 'Purushottam' himself-Lord Krishna.

Sri Vaishnavas who believe and practise Vaishnavism consider and firmly believe that Srimann Narayan with PERIYA PRATTIYAR(His consort)in Sri Vaikuntam -Mokshapuri-is the only DEIVAM -BHAGWAN-to be meditated upon.Bhagwan-the abode of six gunas-GNANAM,BHALAM,SAKTHI,AISWARYAM,VEERYAM,TEJAS

-is the Supreme Lord of the senses-

THE SOURCE OF ALL BEINGS
THE DISTINCT AND COSMIC FORMED ONE

HE IS THE GOAL/THE SUPPORT/THE LORD/THE WITNESS/THE ABODE OF ALL BEINGS/THE REFUGE/THE FRIEND/THE ORIGIN/THE DISSOLUTION/THE STORE HOUSE/THE IMPERISHABLE SEED/THE ONLY ENJOYER AND THE ONLY LORD OF ALL SACRIFICES.

Saulabhyam-easily reachable and accessable.

Karunasagaram-HE WHO IS UNABLE TO BEAR THE SUFFERINGS OF MANKIND AND COMES TO THEIR AID BY HIS NIRHETUKRIPA(Without any provocation and inducement)

Who takes ten steps if his true devotee takes one step towards him! how good is His Swamithvam.So we mortals should firmly catch hold of him because you cant find an equal substitute to Him.Then why talk or even think of anyone better than Him?There is none in the entire universe.The greatest Supreme Being who is pleased with your unstinted/unfliched devotion/bhakti only;not by other offerings if it is without devotion.Easily satisfied with our devotional offering howsoever small or insignificant it may be-leaves,flowers/water etc.Guides you to the path of renunciation by the simplest method of offering whatever you do,eat,offer,give away to another,austerity you practise-offer to him.

That offering will free you from the bonds of works you did which earn good or evil fruit.The one and the only one who declares and swears to his disciple Arjuna that his devotee never perishes.Such is His abundant grace that He incarnates himself to deliver the good and destroy the wicked and to establish dhrama from ages to ages(avataram).The one who recognizes the role of Acharyas to the upliftment of mortals to become his devotee.He even talked to the acharyas from his Archavathara dwellings in temples-Kanchi Perarulan to Tirukanchi Nambi through him to Sri Ramanuja to Emperumana himself to kuresar to mention a few.Giving moksha to his devotees without any discrimination-whether the devotee is high or low, rich or poor,man or woman etc.Such is His unsurpassed compassion towards suffering mankind.

This was just a modest attempt to let all you readers know a bit about the Supreme Being.The above descriptions are very little to describe Lord Krishna fully.

Our next posting will be on the topic 'Guru Parampara Prabhavam' and in that topic we will tell you about............................................Well keep guessing!
