Tirumala Tirupati

Welcome to Adiyen Sri Ramanuja Dasan !

" Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha !"

4) Yaga- Learning to do ritualistic Deity worship.

5) Mantra upadesa- Receiving the 3 sacred mantras (rahasya trayam) from the guru for daily recitation.

One needs to seek a spiritual perceptor (acarya/guru) in order to be initiated into the Sampradayam. No knowledge is considered valid unless it comes from a guru who belongs to the lineage and actually lives and practices the spiritual life. There is nothing that can be added or substracted from the teachings of the great spiritual masters namely Ramanuja. Therefore all comtemporary acaryas must confine themselves to re-interpreting the teachings of Ramanuja to suit modern life - not inventing new doctrines.

Religious, Cultural and Social Aspects of Sri Vaisnavism

Part 2

Dawn of Devotion - Margazhi/Dhanur Month (15 Dec - 15 Jan)

Lord Krishna proclaims in the Gita

Masaanaam Margaseershohum - I am Margazhi, which clearly explains the greatness of this month.

Thirupavai

Of all the Alvars, only Andal has a cult like following among Sri Vaisnavas. During Margazhi month, Andal's composition - Thirupavai is recited in homes and temples at dawn.

Thirupavai celebrates, a simple ritualistic observance, with 1 verse of the Thirupavai dedicated for each of the 30 days of the month.

a) first 10 verses highlights the devotional observance,
b) second 10 verses awakes the Lord's Grace
c) last 10 verses highlights the goal of devotional service.

Thirupavai verse 29

In the early hours of the morning, we have come to worship You and praise Your golden lotus like feet.
Born are we in the cowherd clan, You should not decline our service and homage.
Harken O Govinda ! Not only for today do we seek the drum, but for ever more, seven times seven births, we would be one with You, and serve You and You alone; Change all our other desires O Lord !
