Sorpozhivu / Upanyasam on the topic ‘udalum uyirum’ @ Coimbatore

Adiyen was fortunate to get an opportunity to render a sorpozhivu (speech in Tamil) on the topic ‘udalum uyirum’ or the ‘shareera-aatma’ bhava of Vishishtadvaita philosophy during the 26th annual day celebrations and 10th Srivaishnava maanaadu (conference) of Thirumal Thondar Kulam organisation of Coimbatore.

One should visit Coimbatore to see in person and experience the Srivaishnava lakshanam exhibited by the hundreds of Ramanuja Dasas who are a part of the Thirumal thondar kulam. The astikyam and bhagavatha seshatvam of the srivaishnavas over there is amazing.

Acharya krupa got me this opportunity.

Lecture by Dr.Sreeram Jaganathan on family values to students of Chaitanya Techno School, Mandaveli

With the Principal, while giving the talk

As a part of their Smart living program, The Chaitanya Techno School, Mandaveli had invited me to give a lecture to their 9th and 8th standard students on the topic – family values on the 7th of March 2019.

felicitation by the Principal

The Principal, Smt Aparna, has been taking many such initiatives to inculcate moral values in her school children. My students Veeraraghavan and Sudarshan are working as Sanskrit teachers in the school and that’s how I was known to the Principal and this opportunity came by. It was very refreshing for me to interact with those young minds. There were two half an hour sessions on the same topic – one each for 9th and 8th students. The former was recorded and it is shared as below.

A view from the entrance of Sri Vedanta Desika Thirumaligai at Thiruvahindrapuram

The recording is not of a much sophisticated quality as it was an open ambience and also it rained heavily in the middle.

Swami has verily nicely given the gist of each of the 29 verses in the given one hour 15 minutes duration.

The link to the recording of the upanyasam is as below:


It was a memorable experience for adiyen to have had darshan of Lord Devanathan and his consort Hemambujavalli Thayar, Lord Hayagreevan and Swami Desika in the presence of adiyen’s Guru after the upanyasam was over.



Nammazhwarum Desikanum – Adiyen’s upanyasam @ Ahobila mutt Tiruvallur

Adiyen’s Guru, Sri Sannidhi Srikaryam Swami felicitating adiyen after the upanyasam.

As a part of the 750th birth year celebrations of Swami Desikan @ Ahobila mutt, Tiruvallur, Adiyen was given a golden opportunity to deliver an upanyasam on the topic ‘Nammazwarum Desikanum’ today – Thanks to Sri. Purisai Jagan swami, agent Ahobila mutt, Tiruvallur. The quality of recording is not great as there was non-cooperation from mike box :-). Also adiyen had a sore throat. These two do not anyway correspond to the quality of the content though 🙂
