Friends,
An excellent talk by Kanchi mahaperiyava.Please watch this video where mahaperiyava refers to great ones-Sri Ramakrishna,Sri Ramana and Sri Aurobindo.Mahaperiyava says that upanyasam is of no use and only tapasya would help the world!
Everyone who knows tamizh should listen to this talk by mahaperiyava-so candid and childlike.

Friends,
Swami Shanatananda puri's talks in Tamizh on Srimad Bhagavatham are available as video recordings.I have listened to the very first talk-and going by this,I can say that this is a very lucid and excellent presentation of this peerless work.Swamiji presents it in a easy flowing ,intimate way-he gives the special place that Bhagavatham occupies,how Vedavyasa comes to compile this work at the prompting of sage narada,how it is structured,the greatness and relevance of this work.
Truly a treasure and warmly recommended.Please check:

Thanks Atmavichar(Krishna).Watching and listening to  Nochur Sri Venkatraman in today's webcast, it is very obvious that he is still steeped in the Dakshinamurthy stotram of Sri Sankaracharya rendered in Tamizh by Sri Bhagavan -He just carried it forward from where he left off in chennai yesterday.It was a wonderful 7 day coverage of the stotra at the satguru Gnanananda Hall,chennai.
Namaskar

Akshara Mana Malai -Bhajan at Sri Ramakrishna Math,Mylapore,Chennai
« Reply #39 on: July 28, 2015, 08:30:58 AM »
Friends,
The Complete rendering of Akshara Mana Malai sung by Swami AtmaghAnAnanda of Ramakrishna Math  is available here.The Ageing Swamiji sung it as part of the Night long Shivaratri Program at Sri Ramakrishna Math,Mylapore,Chennai in 2013.Every year,the Shivaratri celebrations at the Math are a huge draw that draws capacity crowd that fills the Huge hall of the Universal Temple.
Swamiji is not a tamilian,yet he gives a fine rendering here(despite a few slips here and there) accompanied by other singers and accompanied by Drum(Tabla) and tambourine,in typical Bhajan style:
http://www.chennaimath.org/maha-shivaratri-2013-bhajans-by-swami-atmaghanananda-2993
There are also other Bhajans on Lord Siva-and this is available for download.

Swami Dayananda Saraswati passed away yesterday at his ashram in Rishikesh:

Got the news earlier from my brother who is right now in Swami Dayananda Ashram in USA .  Swamiji was not in good health for the last few weeks and was mentally preparing all his devotees and students for this final end by giving darshan to all in spite of his illhealth . Swamiji wanted to be by the side of Mother Ganga in his last days and it did happen as per his wish .  I have been immensley benefitted by the Talks and Books of Swami Dayananda ( talks I have attended little but read most of his books which are Transcript of his talks ) and they have given me lot of clarity not just on Advaita Vedanta but also on Sanathana Dharma and the role of Tradition . If today I am able to understand Bhagavan Ramana's teachings  better it is due to the clarity I got through the  excellent and clear interpretations of  the Bhagavad Gita & Other Vedanta Texts  through the teachings of Swami Dayananda and also through his close disciple Swami Paramarthananda who is my Vedanta Teacher and the best being his explanations of Bhagavan Ramana's Upadesa Saram . Ever grateful to Swami Dayananda for helping me get more clarity with regard to not only Advaita Vedanta but also about Sanathana Dharma and though he may no longer be in the body but his teachings are very much alive through his publications and also through some of his excellent disciples ( like Swami Paramarthananda , Swami Guruparananda , Swami Omkarananda  etc etc ) who are great teachers themselves and this teaching tradition will continue .

Noted Devotional Singer of Lord Subramanya ,Sri Pithukuli Murugadass( aged 95 ) passed away today Tue 17 Nov 2015 , on the most auspicious day of Skanda Sashti, . True to his devotion to Lord Subramanya and Thirupuggazh he was absobed by Lord Subramanya on the most auspicious day . This is not just a normal coincidence but a divine coincidence proving that true Bhakti never goes waste .
