My praNAms to you Shri Subbu-ji, for being being able to go to
Sringeri so many times!

> An Acharya with about eight of his young students was teaching Veda with the
> boys repeating after him in a space of about 6' x 6'.  It was a very nice

> There was also a newsletter of the pAThashAla handed out.
> I mentioned the above here as there is an effort to identify
> VedapAThashAla-s and assess their financial/other needs and help them.
> I wish to share a fine experience that I had during my most recent visit to
> Sringeri.  During the night Chandramouleeswara pUjaa performed by HH the
> Jagadguru Himself, after the chanting of Sri Rudram/chamakam, the
> PuruSha/Sree/Durga SUktams, a set of vidyArthis and their adhyApaka chanted
> portions from the Rg Veda.  The chanting, in fine pace and unison, created a
> very soothing feeling.  I was told that a few days ago HH had asked the
> Yajur Veda to be chanted daily at that time and it was concluded at a
> particular stage and now the Rg Veda samhita chanting is going on daily.  I
> stayed for three days there and had the wonderful opportunity of listening
> to the chanting.  On earlier occasions I have also heard the Yajurveda
> samhita chanting during the night pUja.

> yourself of all sins.  Contemplate on the evils of worldly pleasures.
> Develop desire for attaining Self-knowledge.  Quickly give up attachment to
> hearth and home.]
