SBG Brahmotsavam

Great Brahmotsavam celebration in our Gurukulam

One may wonder sometimes about the number of activities undertaken ceaselessly in Srimaan Trust. Circumspective people would understand our swami’s basic consecration and fervor to plan every activity. Srimaan Bhattar Gurukulam students by their best to understand and cope up with the new challenges of life in spiritual ways by the direction of Swami.

Contiguity - to live near and serve Bhagavan, Bhagavatha and / or Acharyah in the only source of elevation of Jeevathma. Srimaan Bhattar Gurukulam students avail this chance by their novel innovative ideas to serve in our ancestral way.

Recently the Srimaan Bhattar Gurukulam students celebrated a Brahmothsav for their Thiruvaradhana Perumal in a grand way. They planned carefully in group and finalized each day’s activity before commencing the uthsav. They omitted almost nothing that is performed in Srirangatha’s Brahmothsav.

Daily Perumal Purappadu in different vahanams including a punnaimara vahanam, Divyaprabandha Goshti in front, Perumal in a beautifully decorated vahanam with Perumal embellished with colourful clothes and flowers, Vedha parayanam closely behind, the procession though with very few people, no doubt reminded of the Purappadu of Sriranganatha Himself. All requirements were prepared by the students who left no exertion to make the uthsav alive. Every day they tried to equal or excel the other day’s performance. And the public extolled especially the children on the streets gave out rhapsody with pleasure. The Uthsav celebrated by the students fortify their cause of study and keeps them with inclination to follow our Purvacharya’s ethics.

Incarceration of senses is almost not practical as explained by Thondaradipodi Azhwar (Kavalalil Pulanai vaithu…) and hence the senses are fed only with Sathvishayams like this. Will you accept it? And will you all encourage their attitude? Kindly make your mangalasasanams to the students.
