Kanchi Paramacharyal

Sri-la-Sri Shanmugha Desika Gnana Sambandha Paramacharya Svamigal, Dharumai Aadheenam

Sri Chandrasekharendra Sarasvathi Svamigal had added immense glory unparalleled renown to the Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham presiding over it as its 68th Pontiff.

The fame of this Holy Sage shines like the luminous fire lit on a hill-top. He is the typical exemplar of Valluvar's dictum that this world rests for its orderliness on the sages of noble thoughts and impeccable conduct. As Nakkirar, the Sangam poet, put it in another context, a mind from which all evil propensities have been totally dispelled, a wisdom that does not come of laboured learning, a leadership that sets the limit to scholarship, a character to which lust and anger are foreign and a nature that does not know any wicked design-all these together constitute the Paramacharya of Kanchi.

IT was he who brought together to the Deivika Peravai, all the leading pontiffs of the various monasteries in Tamil Nadu. We are happy to recall his visit to Dharumai Aadheenam several times and his confabulations with Sri la Sri Kayilai Gurumani, his visit to our Mutt at Madras and his blessings and his invitation to us to the celebrations in our presence of the 81 years of His ascension to the Peetham.

An embodiment of love, a conqueror of the six-fold enemies of lust etc., the controller of the five senses and the master of sacred wisdom he had in his very life installed Sri Jayendra Sarasvathi Svamigal as the Peethadhipati and Sri Sankara Vijayendra Sarasvathi Svamigal as the Pontiff-elect and has shaped them into great Acharyas. The unprecedented spiritual role of the Kanchi Math by three living Acharyas is the monumental testimony to his vision and wisdom.

We were very happy that Sri Chandrasekharendra Sarasvathi Svamigal is entering his hundredth year and that the Centenary Celebrations are being held on a very grand scale and fitting manner all over the world.

We pray the Almighty Grace that he live amidst us for many more years to continue his spiritual and social services to save the erring mortals and that the Holy Order of lord Parameswara be spread throughout the world through his blessing.
