LHVSMPS proudly announces an honoring function held at Nanganallur, Chennai on 15 Jun 2014.
Madhwa Nama Parayana Samithi of Mahilas is one of the active wings of the LHVSMPS TRUST, conducting regular weekly mane-mane Parayanas of Madhwa Nama continuously. The team of Mahilas of Madipakkam under the able leadership of Smt Indira Padmanaban, Smt Shanthi Subbarao & Smt Uma Upendran, the Team of Mahilaas of Triplicane under the leadership of Smt Namagiri Madhusudhan Rao, Smt Janaki Raghunathan & Smt. Renuka Krishnamoorthi and the Team of Mahilas of Villivakkam under the leadership of Smt Krishnaveni Ragothaman have so far conducted more than 100 weeks of parayana successfully and the Parayana still continues.
The services rendered by the Mahilaas are indeed remarkable. Inspite of their daily routine, they actively coordinate and arrange for the parayanas in various houses by getting them together and above all conducting the Parayana sincerely and smoothly.
The Samithi feels very proud of the services rendered by the Mahilas and we are of the opinion that this will directly help the Madhwa families in enabling the members of the younger generation not only to adhere to our age old traditional and cultural values but also in guiding the “paripalana of swakulachara”.
It was therefore decided to highlight the monumental services of our Mahilaas to the community by holding a Mini Mega Parayana at Nanganallur, Chennai, on Sunday, June 15th 2014, bringing together Mahilaas from different parts of Chennai. The programme included the group chanting of the Taratamya Stotra besides the Madhwa Nama & Sri Lakshmi Shobane.
Dr. M. Raghu, M.A. PhD, our Samiti’s mentor, under whose dynamic and able leadership various social, cultural and religious activities are being envisaged for the benefit of a wide cross section of the members of our Samaja, praised the worthwhile services of all the Mahilaas quoting different anecdotes from our scriptures highlighting not only the importance given to the Mahilas in our Society but also their active and purposeful involvement in guiding the destinies of their families successfully. He dedicated the book on “Go Padhma Vratha” (to be followed during the chaturmasa) brought out by the Samiti in honour of the selfless service of the Mahilaas.
He expressed happiness in announcing the publishing of books on the anushtana of other vratas one by one in the days to come so as to enable all to conduct the vratas and other poojas in their houses independently. He was pleased to announce the provision of a “Go Padma Book”, a “Go Padma Rangoli” kit, a set of stree-mudhre and a samputa for the participants of the Mini Mega Parayana. The Samiti is pleased to inform that the members of our Villivakkam Branch had readily offered to sponsor these items.
The Samiti is very happy to note that in view of the over whelming and encouraging response and support received from the Mahilaas, the Samiti dedicates itself further in Hari Seva by targeting a larger audience to encompass Mahilaas and others not only from other parts of our Country but also from overseas.
Let Sri Hari Vayu Gurugalu bless us all in our pursuit of tatva gnana for griha-kshema and loka-kshema.
