I am happy when I do some thing that interests me, some thing that gushes my adrenalin and makes all my cells and tissues active, something that is a vent out for my thought process, something where my emotions could be leaked out giving me divine bliss. And to me, it is often Writing.
This is MY world where pituitary meets the paper ! ! !

Layamum Gurunamasankeerthanamum On Mahaperiyava. . .
shAstrava Odidarenu mUrAru purANava mugisidarenu
sajjanara sanghava mADade dhIranendu Ta tirugidarenu…
Unless one becomes complete saranagathi(gulama) to his
Guru, there is no chance of deliverance (mukuti).
What is the good
of reading(Odi) various (pari pari) shastras, and wasting(vyartha)
devotion(bhakuti) (i.e. reading without devotion)
What if one has
read 6 shastras, and what if a few puranas(muraru i.e 3-6) have been
digested(mugisu), what it if without associating with noble persons goes about
(tirugi) thinking he is a brave soul(dhira).
Jersey is going to witness the energies and vibes of devotional artists’
talents and divine Guru Namasankeerthanam on Mahaperiyava at the Sri Satguru
Seva Samājam, USA.
Sri Satguru Seva Samājam, USA (SSSS), has three broad objectives encompassing
promotion of the tradition of Nāma saṅkīrtana, support of the Bhagavathas who
are the pillars of the centuries-old tradition and last but not the least
sustaining the principles of the Vedic tradition.
percussionists’ family make music across all spectrum of audiences enthralling
them in their own way. The quartets ensure that the divine sound that is
liberated from the earthen pot reaches the audience, ease them and infringe
them with lots of positivity and joy!
Rhythm has dependably been an archetypal aspect of Carnatic music, and in the
cutting-edge era of percussionists and maybe no other individual has aced the
complexities and the laya bequests of the ghatam to such a great degree as PadmaShri
Thetakudi Harihara Vinayakram, Grammy Award–winning Indian percussionist, fondly
known as Vikku mama, What Vikku mama has done for ghatam is to what Beethoven
has done to music! He fervently shaped a revolution by bringing an accompanying
instrument, made of earthen clay, the one on the fringes, to the main stages
twined to be an integral part of the concert, by interluding Rhythms and
Resonant elements to a completely astounding structure of taal!

heritage is known for its “Guru Shishya Parampara” method of teaching. Be it
your kith or kin, a Guru is given all the respect and dignity he deserves when
it comes to the learning of arts. Born to a mridangam player named Kalaimaamani
Sri. TR Harihara Sharma, in a house where beats were all he heard, Vikku Mama
began by learning the mridangam. Following his footsteps, the Vikku Mama sons, Sri.
V.Selvaganesh and Sri. V.Umashankar started accompanying the Godfather in the
present day concerts. And one need not be shocked, if Master Swaminathan has
been under the tutelage of his grandfather and father Sri. Selvaganesh, another
percussionist in the way.

known for his divine guru namasankeerthanams, is joining with the percussion devotional
artists, to make the evening filled with bhakthi and positive vibes of Namasankeerthanam

from the cradles of heritage – town of temples – Kumbakonam (South India) to
United States of America. Not slipping away from the tradition, listening to
prominent bhagavathaas performing Namasankeerthanam, sparked his interest
towards this tradition. With the blessings of his guru Brahmasri Dr. Udayalur
Kalyanarama Bhagavathar, Sri. Swaminathan and few like-minded people, established

of Sampradaya Namasakeerthanam - creating awareness, and most importantly
passing this centuries-old tradition to the next generation.
