Scroll of Honour of Verbal Flower Bouquet offered at the Lotus Feet of Paramahamsa Parivrajakacharya Jagadguru Swami Shankara Vijayendra Saraswathi Maharaj


Address of Honour to the great master and divine personality submitted by the age-old Bangiya Samaj and its members, who serve the cause of scholarship with mastery of wealth of culture.

O Best of Rishis!

You shine as the foremost among the great achievers, buzzing like honey-bee in the feet of Jagadguru Shrimat Shankaracharya, shouldering the tradition of Shrimat Shankaracharya, which has spread as the most ancient and adorable in the world.

O Best among Sanyasis!

Many other Sanyasis reckon as mere words the utterance of Bhagavan “Those who hold on to the loin-cloth alone are indeed fortunate”; they do not consider in truth the loin-cloth as the measure of good fortune. As opposed to such attitude, the naturally radiating shower of lustre and the divine stream of inspiration flowing from you and inundating all common people’s minds with the principle “What is the purport of the agitation due to infatuation in an old man; what is the use of a dried-up lake; after wealth is lost, where is the family; once Reality is known, where is Samsara (cycle of birth and death)” has been perceived by Bangiya Samaj.

O Deva!

You have dedicated your entire life for guiding the world citizen on the path leading to the Supreme Truth, auspicious, imperishable and eternal, by continuous downpour of Jnana. This Bangiya Samaj is fortunate indeed to be in contact with your pure Ganga of Jnana.

O   Foremost   among   Scholars! 

The seed planted in Periyapalayam village in Tamil Nadu by Shri Krishnamurthy Shastri in 1969 and irrigated by the stream of Vedic knowledge, was transplanted at the age of fourteen. You carried with you the Vedic knowledge, capable of leading to the Supreme State, the treasure of your Purvashrama and nothing else. You accepted the life of the fourth Ashrama (Sanyasashrama) at the feet of Jagadguru Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswathi. You meditated on him as ‘My Guru is Shri Jagadguru’. With the strong plough of training, he kindled in you the Surya of Jnana of ‘My Atman is the Atman of all beings’; with that Jnana the Yajna of protection of the world citizen is fulfilled.

Respectful offerings of flowers of honour at your holy feet again and again.
