The Wind with Wisdom - I


Priya arangan adiyars,

A child can win the heart of a man. Not only an ordinary man but even the Supreme Man. Our history is abundant with children who have brought tears to Lord Narayana by the purity of their Bhakthi and force of their love.

The children who taught…

In Bhagawad Gita, Krishna tells Arjuna that controlling of the mind is the solutions of all depressions in life. But Arjuna replies that controlling one’s mind is as difficult as stopping the wind. Then Krishna prescribes that our mind can be controlled and nurtured properly only through practice. That practice if started right from very young age bears fruits at a later date. Even the lives of Dhruvan and PrahalAdan reveal the same message. They were so used to Bhakthi at very young age that they turned out to be great Bhagavathas irrespective of their birth. We all celebrate Thiruppa:vai as a masterpiece which spells out  the essence of all Vedas. But a:nda:l was just five years when She sang Thiruppa:vai. It is our duty to enable our children to practice Bhakthi in their childhood itself.

As a humble effort in this regard, Srimaan trust has been conducting spiritual camps for school-age children during school vacation. During this Ma:rgazhi month (Dec25 to Jan1), Srimaan trust conducted spiritual camp centered on Thiruppa:vai.

A grand inauguration...

Srimaan Trust's 2012 Ma:rgazhi camp was a great experience not only for all the students but also for the volunteers and faculty. The entire week was dedicated purely for Thiruppa:vai and everyone was drenched in Thiruppa:vai that everyone was conversing with statements from Thiruppa:vai.

Founder acharya inspires with his address...

More Wind to blow....
