I bow with reverence to the entire tradition of preceptors
“Vedo Vrikshaha Tasya Moolam hi Vip raha A ngas sakhaha Dharma Karmani Patram Tasrnan Moolo Yatnatho Rakshaneeya Chjnne Moolae Naiva Sakha na Vrikshaha”
“The Vedas” is a Vriksha (Tree), whose roots are the Vipras (Brahmins), the repository of the Vedas. The six Angas, the auxiliary sciences, Siksha (phonetics), Vyakaranam (grammar), Chandas (metre), Niruktha (Etymology of words), Jyothisha, (Vedanga Jyotisha) and Kalpa-Sutra (texts dealing with the procedure, etc., for the performance of srouta and smartha karmas, Karmanushtana), are the branches. The Karmanushtanam and the Dharmic way of life are the leaves. All possible efforts, therefore, should be taken to protect and preserve the ROOTS(i.e., give all possible support to the repository of the Vedas) as, once the roots decay, there will be neither the tree nor the branches and leaves.
Preservation of the ROOTS are our inherent duty to safeguard this vast heritage which has been passed on from one generation to another from time immemorial.
MAHASWAMIGAL – MY WORK
“You shower gold on me, you observe elaborately the festival to mark my ascension to the “Peetha”. Out of your affection you are taking pleasure in this activity. For this purpose, you elect committees, work day and night and make collections. But how can this shower of gold be a permanent feature for the “Mutt”, for all future “Acharyas”? If there is no Veda, where is the need for the “Mutt” or for a Pontiff? Therefore, I ask you to direct this enthusiasm (in arranging, showering gold (Kanaka Abhishekam) the festival to mark the ascension to “Peetha”) by doing everything necessary for the preservation of Vedas, form committees, frame rules and arrange for funds for achieving this objective. It does not matter, if the preservation of Vedas cannot establish a living for life today, but your work will certainly go down in the annals of history as a lifelong service for the generations to come. Under the auspices of a cooperative movement, from village to village, please start classes to impart one hour daily the Adhyayana of Veda Mantras and their application in life, to boys commencing from their eighth year, for ten years. This is the real shower of gold for me, festival etc. Nothing is possible without hard work. I have therefore taken up the subject of Veda.Have I not come here mainly for this purpose? Still can I abruptly start talking about my mission? After you, who take considerable pleasure in welcoming me, finish your work, I can talk to you about my work. Preservation of the Vedas is that work.”
The purpose of this site is to bring about a platform where constructive service can be achieved in anything which will promote Veda Rakshanam – which has been the life time mission of Mahaswamigal.
