is was one other day in Thiruannamalai where our Vaathiyar was fully geared as usual to clear the doubts of his disciples.
Sri Vathiyar : OM. Hope everyone had the lunch.
Adiyar: Yes Vaathyar.
Sri Vaathyar: Then why the hesitation! Start your normal questioning session. Kali yuga’s men are more intellect in asking questions rather than solving or doing anything properly. (Everyone Laugh)
Adiyar: Don’t you get angry when people keep asking you for questions and they hardly follow the same.
Sri Vaathyar: (Smiles) Ok! Tell me one good reason for why we need to get angry?
Adiyar: Say in other places for example a school a teacher is appointed to teach the students and to make them understand the concepts
About our Guru and his work
It is because of our Vathyar, that we are standing today. Every moment he was with us it was divine like. His humble words reverberated like the gong that bet softness even in the heart of a warrior who had raised his sword but slightly lowered due to the sweetness and divinity in our vathyar’s voice. He is none other than“Sri-La-Sri R.V.Venkataraman Swamigal… An ardent disciple of Sri-La-Sri Iddayappa esa Siddhar. His language was simple. He taught us Brahmic science in the simplest of forms…
So what was this Brahma Sutra that we Learnt from Him ???
Service to mankind/and every Living Creature (Big and Small) --- simple isn’t it!!
