Wishing all our readers a very happy Kara Tamil Newyear. On our eighth birthday, we seek the blessings of our GurujiAmma and Guruji that Vedhanaadham should continue to be publication generations after generations
According to you if a few people live together then you define that as a family. Parents as a first step are determined to have children of their own. As a result they pray to the Lord to bless them with a child and with the birth of a child, the boon along with the Lord is totally forgotten. Then the requests to the Lord keep accumuating that the child should study well, attain puberty, earn a handsome amount and the Lord fulfills all your desires. Among the handsome amount that the Lord is giving, you should cultivate the thought of sharing a small portion to RadheKrishna Satsangam. The reason why I am placing this request on behalf of the Lord is that you have forgotten this thought.At the same time, the parents feel a sense of pain when the children ignore them and question them whether they are ideal parents. You must take stock of what is happening in this country and think what should be done. The main drawback of our nation is that we dont have sufficient money power and hence you take steps to build wealth for the family. But the cause of all this is the Lord who blesses us with abundant wealth and we should be able to take a small share and return it back to Him. Why is that required?

India is the holy land with so many bhaktas (devotees). When we go through the Indian history, there must be a bhakta in every period. That is the greatness of this sacred land. Bhaktas are the role model for all the bonded souls. They enjoy their life in a perfect way. Bhaktas surrender themselves to the Lotus feet of Lord. By hearing or reading bhaktas' divine story, the bonded soul is enlightened to come out of the worldwide bondages.
RadheKrishna! Sincere chanting and listening to the great stories of devotees will surely give a peace of mind to everybody, even in this 21st century. So many people think that listening to the devotee's stories is a waste of time and there is no benefit at all. If somebody wants to realize the power of bagawan, first of all they must listen bhaktha charithram [stories of devotees]. There are so many advantages in listening to baktha charithram.
Bharath is a very special land and contained within it are sacred places and rivers. Devotees born in this sacred Bharath ensure that they propagate bhakti in all corners of the country. This is the precise reason why the fragrance of bhakti can be felt all around our country.
Our beloved Guruji has a special reverence for Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and in the coming issues, we will enjoy his bhakthi and the path of devoution that he had set an example for us to follow.
The pandit felt a great sigh of relief as he began to take bath in the ganges and he dissolved all his ego and began to feel like a child of Krishna. He was constantly praying to the devas that he becomes a devotee of Krishna. In KrishaKarnamrutham as well Leela Sugar prays to all the devas from Agni to Vishnu that they bless him with true devoution towards Krishna. Even Krishna says in Gita that after millions of births alone that a person gets true devoution towards Him. We must have gone through many births worshipping various devas and at the end of it alone that we are able to conclude that even during the destruction of the universe that Krishna alone is the lone surviving entity.
It is very rare to find a devotee who would conclude that Vasudeva or Krishna is the supreme personality of God. Till this day the pandit was conquering everyone but was defeated by his own soul. This is because as we engage more in the wordly affairs the souls is lost and as we chant more souls wins. The body can undergo victories and defeats but the soul should always win. The pandit forgets himself and without any sandals and with a dripping cloth he makes his way towards meeting Nimayee. His attire which was contrary to the one till yesterday that was filled with pomp and glamour made others feel that the pandit was looking like a totally lost person or a person who has forgotten all the wordly affairs.

RadheKrishna.Hinduism is an ancient religion. All the things that have been spoken in Hindu religion can be applied in practical life. Although in 21st century till everyone can apply this in his or her daily life. The aim of Hindu religion is to provide total happiness to everyone at all times (or any point of time). The essence of Hinduism is told in "Bhagawad Gita". In order to realize what is said in Bhagawad Gita it is a compulsory (must) to have an unconditional faith on Bhagawad Gita. So many people have benefited in their lives because of the (by reading) shlokas of Bhagawad Gita. In Bhagawad Gita, Bhagawan Shri Krishna has told the way to lead a happy life in such an easy way that even a normal layman can easily understand. The slokas are so simple that anyone can understand and use it practically. In the coming months we will enjoy the 12th Chapter of Gita and the devoution towards the Lord as explained by our beloved Guruji.
The ever merciful Lord proceed to answer Arjuna and it is the Lord's mercy alone that is sustaining this universe. Even Madhurakavi azhwar proclaims that the mercy of the guru is bigger than anything else. Arjuna is immersed in joy on getting the hint that the Lord is going to answer and clear his doubts. The Lord looks at Arjuna and says that he will answer the ways so that a person can be with the Lord for ever. We try to associate and live each day with different inviduals but one day they will all be gone. But the Lord is ever present and to be with Him the Lord instructs Arjuna to give his mind to Him.
The benefit of living with the Lord is extereme joy and nothing but eternal joy. The Lord will ensure that no trouble will reach His devoutees and will provide the much needed peace for us and this is exactly what Lord Ram also did. Despite having to search for His wife, he took a break to help Sugreeva kill Vaali and he stayed with him till the time Sugreeva was able to enjoy the kingdom and then only proceeded further to search for Sita. Although he was longing for Sita, he was still happy that Sugreeva was now living happily in his kingdom with his kith and kin. Hence living with the Lord will ensure that He will suffer and forgo his happiness for our sake and such is the mercy of the Lord.

Perumal Thirumozhi was as a result of Kulasekara azhwar longing to see and enjoy Lord Ranganatha. The Thirumozhi also results from the bhakthi of the azhwar towards Rama and Krishna and he begins with his longing for Lord Ranganatha. Everyone of us have so much of longing for the worldly affairs but the longing and the love for the Lord alone will help us achieve a good state.
Kulasekara azhwar enjoys Lord Ranganatha as Adisheshan in the first two pasurams or songs. Then he enjoys the Lord as enjoyed by Brahma. But the way Gopis enjoyed the Lord is considered to be supreme. This is because the not so intelligent Gopis were fully aware of the strengths of the Lord and believed that Krishna would save them. Of all the avataras, Krishna avatar is considered to be the best and one that can easily be enjoyed. This was followed by Kulasekara azhwar enjoying how Narada and Tumburu enjoy the Lord. He continues further and sees how the devotees are enjoying the Lord and what items are safeguarding the Lord. Then the azhwar decides to mingle with the devotees and experience how it would be to be part of that group and enjoy the Lord.
Thirukozhtiyur nambi finds Thirukachi nambi in a place along with the cows and was surprised to find that the latter had removed all his clothes, put them on top of the cows and was lying on top of the cows. On being questioned Tirukachi nambi says that due to rain the cows might catch cold. As result when Thirukozhtiyur nambi consumes the milk of the cows, he will catch cold and hence he was lying on top of the cows. Can anyone think to such an extent about the health of his/her guru? When he returned home, Thirukozhtiyur nambi called his wife and said to provide his cow caretaker some food. Thirukachi nambi falls at Thirukozhtiyur nambi and rushes to Lord Varatharajan and asks if he would get liberated to which the Lord replies that he is surely bound to be liberated. This is because the guru himself proclaimed an association and the same thing is being longed for by Thondaradipodi azhwar as well that the Lord Ranganatha would proclaim him to be of His clan.
We must sing the praise of the Lord as much as we can. This is because all sounds have "OM" as the base sound and as much as the sound begins from the navel and ends here, all things in the world emanate from the Lord and conclude in the Lord. Even saint Thiyagaraja says not to waste our voice by speaking about people and instead sing the praises of the Lord which would ensure happiness in this world and in the ultimate one as well. There is no guarantee that the voice would be with us for ever and even Kulasekara azhwar says that towards the fag end of our lives the only sound we would be able to make is that of our breathing. Hence we should sing the praises of the Lord as much as we can when the voices are under our control.

Bhagawan takes avatar in each and every yuga mainly to safeguard the bhaktas and then to destroy the rakshasaas who trouble his bhaktas. So Bhagawan comes to this bhoomi from paRamapadham just for the sake of his bhaktas. Hence we come to know that bhaktas are very important to the Lord. Whenever Bhagawan comes to rescue his bhaktas, the other fellow people also reap the benefits.........Our guruji amma gives high respect to all the bhaktas. Hence our Vedhanaadham's every issue will be dedicated to one bhakta. This issue we are dedicating to the one of the great eternal devotees of the Lord namely - 'SageAtri'
The great sage wasone of the seven saptharishis and was one of the manasaputra (born out of mind) of Brahma
The greatrishi was married to Anusuya and had three sons Soma, Dattatreya and Durvasa
The great soul who instructed Acharya Drona to give up fighting and concenrate on the Lord during the Mahabharatha war
The greatauthor also wrote two great works Atri Samitha and Atri Smrithi and is also attributed to several important mantras..
The great seer was visited by Lord Ram and the sage showed the Lord the way for the Dandakaranya forest
The ultimate liberator bestowed by Lord Sri Krishna!
