4. FORTHCOMING EVENTS

4.1 POURNAMI POOJA – FRIDAY 24th Oct. ’99

  Pournami Pooja on Friday, 24th Oct ’99 is being sponsored by a group of well wishers. Pooja will be held at the prayer hall adjoining Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple,Serangoon Road.

Programme is as follows:

7.15 pm Veda Parayanam

8.30 pm Deeparadhanai
8.40 pm Devotional Songs

This month Pournami falls on Revathi Nakshathiram. Interested persons for Sankalpam may contact Sri P.S. Ramanathan Tel: 442-7841.

4.2  MANDALA VEDA PARAYANAM   

The Mandala Veda Parayanam has been held by the Sabha for the past 6 years without a break.  This Veda Parayanam will be conducted this year for 45 days starting from 17th Nov ’99 and culminating on 1st Jan 2000 at the congregation of the members for the Sastha Preethi function.  The Krishna Yajur Veda is the principal text chanted by the purohiths.  Each day a different prasna (chapter) is chanted and the significance is explained by the purohiths.  The parayana is conducted at a different home every day and is followed by the chanting of the Rudram, Chamakam and Suktams or other scriptures learnt by the members of the Veda classes conducted by the Sabha.

 It is our privilege to preserve and protect the knowledge of the Veda and its  secrets.  The experienced ones state that the Veda reveals its secrets in its own time to those who aspire to this knowledge with sufficient ardour.  This knowledge only comes with the opening of our intuitive abilities which in turn are developed by listening to the chanting of the scriptures.  To be able to listen to it even once in one’s lifetime is itself a cause for wonderment.  That we have been able to listen to it regularly for so many years is truly an act of God.

 

We seek the support of members once again and those who wish to host the parayana are requested to get in touch with Sri D Ramesh (OR-123)  Tel: 565-4506 or Sri N Kannan (ON-33) Tel: 567-3015.
