Poor lord Shiva is being deprived of all his properties by humans. The hymn Sri Rudram which has always been recognized by ancient seers and scriptures as a hymn in praise of lord Shiva, today that hymn is being forcibly snatched away from Shiva and is being gifted to lord Vishnu.
It is popularly known as Kanchi. Kancheepuram is situated about 74 kilometers southwest of Chennai by road. Kancheepuram has a railway station, which stands midway between Chengalpattu and Arakkonam Junctions. Kanchi is one of the seven Mokshapuris -sacred cities by living in which or by death therein man gets emancipation from birth and death.
Five important sacred places of Siva worship in South India are collectively called "Panchabhuta- Kshetras". Of these five, Kanchi is the Prithvi-kshetra.
Vide Chapters X and XI. Kanchi has been a center of literary pursuits and advanced learning. Inscriptions at Kanchi point to the existence of Ghatikastan during Pallava regime.
Various disciplines are taught at colleges affiliated to the University. Kancheepuram is a city of temples: Sri Adi Sankara, after his various tours through most parts of India, settled down at Kanchi to spend His evening years.
He caused to remodel the city and reconstruct the three principal temples -Sri Kamakshi, Sri Ekamranatha and Sri Varadaraja.
At Kanchi he established a Math for himself and founded a line of successors after him on the Peetha. Sri Sankara Bhagavatpadacharya In this mundane world, conflict between good and evil has been a legendary phenomenon from time out of mind.
When this conflict turns acute and causes a crisis in the basic culture of the land, divine force intervenes to set things right. We find a number of anecdotes about demons endowed with tremendous might, causing harm of non-mean degree, not only to human beings but to the celestials as well.
The Puranas speak of the avataras incarnations of Lord Vishnu who destroyed the demons and established the path of righteousness - Dharma.
More than years ago, an avalanche of heretic and non-Vedic sects, with horrible religious practices threatened to wipe away the ancient Veda-Dharma. In the Bhagavad Geeta, Lord Krishna has told Arjuna that, whenever there arises danger to Dharma, He Krishna will incarnate in this world to eradicate adharma and re-establish Dharma.
In consonance with His words, the Lord has made partial incarnations during the course of the present Kali Age.
And such an incarnation is the partial incarnation of Siva as Sankara Bhagavatpada, which happened some twenty-five centuries ago, on the prayer of celestials to Lord Siva to redeem Bharata-desa from the clutches of non-Vedic and heretic sects.
Sri Sankara Bhagavadpadacharya was one of the greatest philosophers and spiritualists of, the world.
He was a discerning dialectician, a consummate commentator and a celebrated poet. His miraculous achievements, within a short span of life of thirty-two years, speak of his super-human aspect.
Sages and scholars, who have shone through the centuries after his time, have regarded him as an incarnation of the Divine. Many a thinker and many a scholar of different climes and times has been attracted by the philosophic discipline of Advaita Monismeffectively propagated by Sankara.
Even after years after their marriage they had no issue. So they went to Tiruchivaperur modern Trichur in Kerala and stayed there for a number of days and worshipped Vrshachalesvara, the presiding deity of the temple there, praying for a male offspring.
Sankara biographies narrate that both Sivaguru and his wife had identical dreams, at night of the last day of their stay in Tiruchivaperur, in which the Lord asked them if they desired to have a single son endowed with good qualities, wisdom and intelligence or sons wicked and idiotic by nature and that the couple left the decision of the choice to the Lord Himself.
Months after Sivaguru and Aryambal had returned to Kaladi, a male child was born to Aryambal, on the fifth day of the bright fortnight of the Vaisaka month of the cyclic year Nandana B. Though many dates are assigned for the birth of Sankara, this date may be said to be fairly well established by research scholars on the basis of literary, architectural and astrological sources of information.
The parents gave the name "Sankara" to the child. The life story of Sankara is told in many purely biographical works and also short sketches of the Great Acharya are had in works devoted to other topics.
The true spirit of profound enquiry must be the guide to Indian history. These scholars with insufficient data and superficial knowledge of our tradition wrote textbooks on Indian history, which were mainly responsible for a great deal of erroneous views about our past.
To understand, to recapture and to live up to the best of our traditions, it is necessary for a scholar to discover for himself the truth enveloped in obscurity made hazy in the name of research.
The lady of the house came out and saw the lustrous little brahmachari. She went in and searched for something for offering to the boy. But there was nothing in the house to offer.
The boy looked at the woman and noticed the lines of poverty and sorrow writ large on her face. Mahalakshmi stood above the house. Sankara requested the Goddess to provide the means for the livelihood of the inmates of that house.
The Devi caused a shower of gold amalakas on that house.Father of Vedic Math Spiritual Seer, Philosopher, Great Mathematician, Scientist.
