There are more and more things on heaven and earth,Horatio
I am quite busy with my AASTHIKA ANALYSIS A SEARCH, within myself,without fear or favour and so I could not spare time for creation of fresh blogs.
I just saw a comment from an INCOGNITO,about which I thought fit to say a few words.The important extrat from the man behind the mask, is extracted below, which would show how an hypocrite he could be.
“ very strange....Shakatapuram is one of the ancient mutts in Karnataka..yes its indeed Totakacharya's Mutt ,well my family follows Kanchi Mutt and my extended family follows Sringeri from ages..and all the shankarachraya mutt's and great kings have acknowledged this mutt and this mutt was also visited by both the Shankrachrays as well..the complaints that u have mentioned is totally false and untrue....so i guess u wrote this blog with some vengeance in mind...If you don't know please SHUTUP..
..its Maha paap...Shakatapuram is one of the great mutt's ,...I pray may God bless you with Wisdom and i will sincerely request you to beg for forgiveness in the Holy feet of the JagadGuru..He will surely forgive you...He is a Karunamoorthy.

There are only 2 ways of viewing things positive and negative; neutral is a n unique category, rare. Ouvaiyar said that Jadhi Irandozhiya varillai……..Ittar periyor Idathar…Izhikulathor..Patangillullapadi”. In Gita Krishna ,depicts HIMSELF AS either extremes. So also there are AASTHIKA AND NAASTHIKA . Its lead to believe that the denial of god and or non-acceptance is NAASTHIKA. NO!
Non learning of the back up literatures in detail and out of such ignorance weakly following a tribe without knowledge, however big the society may be , are NAASTHIKAS only. Atleast in the former there is convincing denial,rather an atheist read everything and later getting convinced ,which is acceptable. But in the latter, there is nothing but fawning and Greed, self protection and selfishness,belief because of return and fear Psychosis,and such of those are Naasthikas out of ignorance and make a personal property religion a commercial property. TO DAY THE WHOLE WORLD IS FACING THIS AND IT’S A SURPRISE THAT A COUNTRY WHICH PRAYED FOR SARVE JANA SIKINO BHAVANTHU, VIZ INDIA, RUNNIONG AFTER, VARIED ROBES FOR STAYING IN A SOCIAL COMMUNITY TO PLAN THEIR LIVELYHOOD, FOR GREED ,HIGH STRATA PRESERVATION AND ANDTO STAY FAR ABOVE OTHERS PUSHING THEM DOWN. \
No one could remember that
EPPORUL YAR YAR VAIKKAETPINUM,APPORUL MEIPPORUL KANBADU ARIVU; MAZHITHALUM NEETALUM VENDAVAM YAKKAIKKU ULAGAM PAZHITHADU OZHITHUVIDIN. THERE ARE NO BETTER GOD THAN THAT WHICHMIN YOUR HOME AND BETTER WORSHIPFUL PRESENT ONES THAN PARENTS; YET PEOPLE RUN AFTER EITHER NOTHING OR THOSE WHO SHALL NOT BE DISTURBED. There is nothing wrong in reciving the blessings and preachings for good, but only from those who don’t aspire for aspirations such as one who shirked everything and don’t even need you.
Those who sing their song for attaining the wealth of this world,fail to see unearthing of or hoarding of crores and tons in their suit, contributed by the ignorant. IMMAIKKUM ENAI MARUMAIKKUM THATHAM KARUMAME KATTALAIKKAL. TIRUVALLUAR wrote the VEDAM AND UPANISHADS in Tamil. HE IS A BRAHMIN. One who understood the brahman is BRAHMIN and not by birth. If you look at Itihasas, PEOPLE RESPECDTED THE RESPECTABLE AND NO CROWD FLOCKED THEVASHISHTA, BHARADWAJA ,KASYAPA OR ANY RISHIS WHO WERE RETIRING IN VANA VASA.Sanyasi came to visit the grahasthas and not the vice versa.
KARMANYEVADIKARASTE MAA PALESHU KATHACHANA-AND SUCH IS PUNYAMAll All other events are papa karma only and puyam and papam are ‘HAVRAVAR ECHATHAL” ONLY DETERMINABLE.
Kanchi mutt is wealthy bur Acharyas are sitting in viewaqble simple rooms. Sringeri is very rich but Acharyals stay simple and do pujas for the welfare of the people in the universe. Sringeri denied the costly car presented by the ardent devotee,recently,and said his needs are simple. There are no evidences to showwhether the Thodakacharyar came down here and established a mutt,since HE was destined to take care of one mutt established by the ADI SANKARA and such deciple who did only one sloka on his guru and nothing else ,would have derelited his post defying the words of Guru. There are 296 Sankaracharyas of eka and thritandi,self styled are many. Ihave great respedt for sanyasi and do pranams who practice Gnanayoga and lead a life of simplicity. Even before Sringeri were there ancient mutts now remaining unheard of dilapidated. VIDYARANYAR REVIVED THE Sringeri and other Mutts of Karnataka making, the HARIHARA PUKKA the doyen.
If you consider various puranasof yester years there are so many spots enshrined as spots of the visits of Ramayana characters. In south its many. However SriRama was born near Afganisthan and North of Ganga River, when the Bharatha was called JAMBUDDWEEPAM; the land surrounded by seas. There was this nation without Himalaya at one time. Even to day SriLanka has scriptures and inscriptions showing Rama visit. However there are other theories also that present Srilanka position was not the original geo position. Lord Rama was 64 feet tall as Ramayana deciphers it. So History were true but when chatur yuga have to be considered, todays AFRICA, AUSTRALIA, SRILANKA POSITION OF INDIA ETC ARE SPLITTERS FROM JAMBUDWEEPAM AND THE CRASH CREATED THE HIMALAYA. Rig veda never speaks about Himalaya at all where those people lived , created the verse and recited. In so many places Vamana Avatara is repeated but not earlier or later ones. The current fear of self-preservations existed in Rig veda period where people worshipped the elements which hit them ,so do now such people who do say papam, etc,forgetting for a moment what do they contribute for the welfare of the society.
In short, in my opinion AASTHIKA is one who reads and understands the scriptures, raise their standards in Dharmic way with yoga preached by such scriptures. KARPAVAI KATRAPIN NIRKA ATHARKU THAGA.Not running behind for self preservations. Respect the elders but never over react. What is the use if one goes behind religious fads without attending to their PARENTS OR DAILY DHARMAMS? What is the use if women runabout uncalled for rituals and swamiji8s, without attending to their husbands, and family and disrespecting their house hold women. ? Every act of the human being is to search and find out the truth and stick to their conduct of Dharmic profession,elicit from anyone the Hindu Way of life universally, and not to become the model of the HERDS INSTINCT.
