Sudarshana Chakram- Veena

SRI SUDARASHANA CHAKRAM OF LORD RAMA, BHADRACHALAM 

76th Sloka from Sri Sudarashan Sathakam:-

76) VAANEE POURAANIKEE YAM PRATHAYATHI MAHITHAM PREYKSHANAM KAITABHAAREYEHEY 

SHAKTHIRYASYESHUDAMSHTRAANAKHAPARASHUMUKHAVYAAPINEE THAVIBHOOTHYAAM 

KARTHUM YATTHATHVABODHO NA NISHITHAMATHIBHIRNAARADAADYAISHCHA SHAKYAHA 

DEIVEEM VO MAANUSHEEM CHA KSHIPATHU SA VIPADAM DUSTHARAAMASRARAAJAHA.

Meaning-This slokam reveals where the 'tejas' and the 'Shakthi' of Sri Sudarashana Chakra Rajan are concentrated.

The benedictionis-" SA: ASTHRA RAAJA: VA: DEIVEEM MAANUSHEEM CHA VIPADAAM KSHIPATHU". (May Sri Sudarashana Chakram , King of weapons chase away the dangers that originate from Devas and human beings!)

Scriptures reveal that (Vaanee Pouraanikee Yam Prathayathi) Sri Sudarshana is the sankalpa (resolution) Shakthi of Lord Vasudeva who resides in Vaikuntham (Mahitham Preykshanam Kaitabhaarey:), Sri Sudarshana's power resides during Ramaavataram in His arrows, in His canine teeth during Varaahaavataram, in His nails during Nrusimhaavataaram, in His axe in Parashuraamaavataaram and in the appropriate weapons He chooses for other avatarams. For instance, in Vamanaavataaram His Shakthi entered the 'pavithram' that He was adorning. The true form and inherent nature of Sri Sudarashana is difficult to comprehend fully even by sages like Narada (Yath Thathva Bodha: Karthum Nishithamathibhi: Naradaadyaishcha Na Sakya:) May Sri Sudarashana banish all dangers (Dustharam) that are 'Deivaadeenam' and 'Manushyaadeenam'. (Thank you for the meaning www.sadagopan.org) 

The above 76th slokam of Sri Sudarashana Sathakam  was given to me by a senior Archaka in Periya Perumal temple in Srirangam. The slokam not only started with "Vani" (indicating Veena), the slokam clearly states that Sri Sudarshana becomes the core of the main accessory used by every avataram. As the embodiment of Shakthi and Tejas, residing in the accessory used by the respective avataram. Sri Sudarashana by connecting Himself through the article/accessory becomes the source of power of the avataram. 

Therefore, Veena being the source of power (Shakthi and tajas) for all Veena players, chanting of the above enhances the tejas multifold.

BHAGAVANJI ANUGRAHAM

GURUVAARAM, PRADOSHAM, 2ND DECEMBER, 2021. With the family (From left- Smt. Rajalakshmi, myself, Sri. Vidyasagar, Sri. Sathyan and Ms. Maithreyi) who presented the Veena belonging to Smt. Renuka to me ( approximately 30 to 40 years old, made of fine jackwood). Thank you so much!!

I completed the translation and uploading of  the final chapter of Srimad Bhagavad Bharathi this morning. Within a couple of hours I  received the unexpected divine gift of Veena (embodiment of Goddess) played over the years by Smt. Renuka  from the lovely family who are friends of our mutual friend. 
I request dear most readers to kindly go through Srimad Bhagavad Bharathi slokas. I am one of the many devotees who has experienced miracles by reading SBB. 
During the first Vardhanthi of Bhagavanji in 2000 I performed in the ashram. A bird-like chirpy female voice sang along every nuance of my playing. Whether it was a krithi or even ragam, thanam or kalpana swaram the divinely melodious voice closely followed each and every note, curve and creation that came from my Veena. The audience started looking around to see who was singing so melodiously, especially merging with the tone of my Veena. Mathaji asked me to stop abruptly and when I stopped even the voice stopped. People were openly stunned and some went outside the mandapam to search for the singing woman but could find nobody.
When I started playing again, the singing would also start along with my Veena. Finally after my concert Mathaji in Her speech declared that the voice we all heard was my "Antharvani" (my inner voice)! Bhagavanji's power made the 'anahatha' as 'ahatha'. 
Mathaji speaking after my concert.

"OM NAMO BHAGAVATHEY SRI VIDYAARANYAAYA" is the most powerful mantra that gives fearlessness and fulfills all desires. I write it in sanskrit (likhitha japam) almost everyday. Chanting is equally good.

MATHAJIS WITH BHAGAVANJI AND SENIOR SWAMIJI

Excerpts from " HIRANYAGARBHULU SRI VIDYARANYULU" authored by Mathaji Sadvidya Prabhadevi-
"In 1965, after we had the divine Darshan of Bhagavanji, many changes started to take place in our lives. During that time we (we 3 sisters) were studying our degree courses in college. We are E.Rukmini (Mathaji Sadvidya Prabhadevi, B.Ed., M.A. English), E.Vijayalakshmi ( Mathaji Chitvidya Prabhadevi, B.A.) and E.Venkatalakshmi (Mathaji Vidyasukha Prabhadevi, B.A). We were great devotees of Bhagavanji and wanted to serve Him, the Embodiment of God. But Bhagavanji refused and prevented us from dedicating ourselves to the ashram because we were women and we would have to undergo certain austerities which is not possible for women. Bhagavanji was also concerned that our parents and brothers would be hurt by our decision to leave home and dedicate ourselves to the ashram and Bhagavanji's service. Between 1965 to 1969 we somehow dragged time by satisfying ourselves by our occasional Darshans of Bhagavanji. In 1969, on the day of Sravana Sukravaram ( auspicious Friday of the sravana month) we renounced all relationships and material life and surrendered ourselves to the path of Bhagavanji and to His ashram."
