Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Swamy visited Divya Saketham, JIVA to pay respects to Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swami. Sri Swamiji referred to him as a ‘pushkara cloud’, with flowing words of wisdom that are sanctifying people across the nation and world on the depths of Vedic literature!
Velukkudi Krishnan Swamy expressed his immense joy for blessed opportunity to see Swamiji. He shared his happiness to visit the JIVA campus that is getting ready with 108 Divya Desams (Centres of Inspiration for inner abilities) around the 216 feet of Sri Bhagavad Ramanujacharya (as part of 1000th birth anniversary celebrations)!
Speaking on the occasion, He compared how Ramanujacharya is superior to Rama in certain aspects! Ramanujacharya showed us the greatness of Dravida and Rahasya sasthra (Devotion and Love) while Rama showed us the way to lead a righteous life as per Vedam (Righteous living). While Vedic wisdom is the foundation, the wisdom shared by alwars in Dravida Prabandhas is the beautiful building that we should all live in!
Rama liberated everyone and everything in Ayodhya to experience the permanent Blissful state (moksham)! Being connected with Ramanujacharya (Ramanuja sambandham) liberates everyone irrespective of time, today and in future!
He spoke about the importance of pleasing Lord rather than pleasing one-self! Performing Sandhya vandanam may attain punyam for you. But, If you are reciting thiruvayamuji and it is time for Sandhya Vandanam, then it is okay to stay with the recitation because it pleases Lord! Pleasing lord takes priority over attaining punyam. However, we should never skip the recommended activities unless Visesham is in the place of Samanyam, said Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Swamy!
Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swami, along with hundreds of devotees at Divya Saketham have been chanting Ramanuja Nootrandadi during the navaratri celebrations from Ugadi to Sri Rama Navami. Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Swamy also joined the recitation that day and felt extremely elated for being part of the divine gathering!
