Jagadguru Sri Adi Shankaracharya

Jagadguru Sri Adi Shankaracharya

With the blessings of Jagadguru Shankaracharya Sri Sri Bharati Tirtha Mahasannidhanam, and Jagadguru Shankaracharya Sri Sri Vidhushekhara Bharati Sannidhanam, Sri Adi Shankaracharya Ashtottara Shatanama Parayana Yajna commenced throughout Karnataka on 24th December 2017.

The Yajna, being conducted by Sri Shaankara Tattva Prasaara Abhiyaanam of the Peetham, was inaugurated by Sri Sannidhanam in a  public function on the morning of December 24 at Sringeri. About 500 devotees from various places in Sringeri Taluk chanted the Ashtottara in the divine presence of Sri Sannidhanam. Sri Sannidhanam delivered an Anugraha Bhashanam on the occasion and blessed the devotees.

As part of the Yajna, tens of thousands of devotees are to chant the Ashtottara Shatanama of Sri Adi Shankaracharya in groups spread across hundreds of centres in the various districts of Karnataka.

Sri Mahasannidhanam in His Anugraha Bhashanam at the start of the Yajna in 2015 had said that it is our foremost duty to remember and revere Sri Adi Shankaracharya, the incarnation of Lord Parameshwara, for reviving Sanatana Dharma and for showing the path of welfare to all. Remembrance of Sri Adi Shankaracharya and His virtues can be done by all by chanting His Ashtottara Shatanama. If we understand the pregnant meanings behind each name in the Ashtottara, and chant the names, it will be as if Sri Adi Shankaracharya Himself stands before us giving us His Darshan. Sri Mahasannidhanam blessed that every follower of Sanatana Dharma participate in this Japa Yajna, the greatness of which is vouched for by Bhagavan Himself in the Gita, where He states – “यज्ञानां जपयज्ञोऽस्मि” – Of all Yajnas, I am the Japa-Yajna. Sri Mahasannidhanam also said that the the Parayana of the Ashtottara of Sri Adi Shankaracharya must become part of our daily prayers.
