Mail received by the LHVSMPS TRUST – CHENNAI reproduced here below:
A Devotee, Vijayendran commented on Nanguneri Parayana vide his mail dt 01/12/2013:
“I am one of the blessed participant in Nanguneri mega and the event was well organized. Thanks to Dr.Raghu and team for the detailed arrangements made for this event.
As the samithi grows across cities & across various states, I would like to bring an important point to administrators attention. I was just checking with my relative in krishnagiri why he not attended the Nanguneri Mega. But I surprised to hear from him that he along with others in krishnagiri attended Harivayustuthi Parayana program at Salem on the same day. Even though there is no harm in chanting HVS across various places, it is quite surprising to note that those who were chanting regularly on samiti’s behalf for the past few years are attending some other event rather than attending the event organized by its parent – LHVSMPS at Nanguneri that too on the same day.
Just like other devotees, I also aware of the Samithi’s efforts to bring awareness among Tamil Nadu madhwas by visiting various cities & villages for the past few years.
I request the Samithi Administrators to take this seriously and make some cautious steps to protect & retain LHVS’s unique identity and the hard earned reputation by bringing in some controls across its network so that others shouldn’t misuse either LHVS name or its participants.”
Response of LHVSMPS TRUST-CHENNAI, to the mail of 1st Dec, 2013 received from Sri Vijayendran:
“The points raised in his mail were duly noted and the Samiti’s response is given here under besides thanking him for his participation and for his appreciation of the event.
At the outset, I am advised to inform all our devotees that other than the mahaa Hari Vayu Stuti parayana organized by our Samiti in Nanguneri (one of the eight Swayam Vyakta Kshetras) on Sunday, 24/11/2013, no other Hari Vayu Stuti (HVS) Parayana was either arranged or authorized by the LHVSMPS TRUST-CHENNAI (hereinafter called “SAMITI”), under its banner, on the said date, either in Chennai or elsewhere.
However, in order to put the record straight and to avoid any confusion and misgivings in the minds of our devotees, we have to inform that, further to the request received by the Samiti for holding a mega HVS parayana on 24/11/2013, our representatives discussed the issue for finalizing the preliminary arrangements required to be taken for holding the same, which however did not materialize due to their obduracy and absence of positive communication despite the Samiti having put in sincere efforts in organizing it. As such this proposal was duly dropped from the Samiti’s schedule of events.
All our devotees are very well aware that all the parayanas arranged by the Samiti from time to time, are being arranged solely for universal good and well being and for the welfare of all Madhwa brethren, the Samiti holding the strong and firm view that by doing such parayanas for the well being and good of all, the incidental and individual prayers of one and all will be answered by Sri Hari Vayu Gurugalu as is being experienced over the years.
Further, all our devotees are aware that originally the HVS parayana in Nanguneri Temple, was fixed for Sunday, the Sep 8th, 2013 (which information had been put up in our web site) and the parayana had to be postponed pursuant to the receipt of requests from a large number of devotees citing Gauri habba (on Sept, 8th) and Sri Vinayaka Chathurthi festival on the following day (i.e., on Sept, 9th). Besides, His Holiness the Jeer of Vanamamalai Mutt in Nanguneri had informed us that he will not be available in the town during Sept, 2013, due to the observance of chaathur maasa vratha in northern India.
The Samiti, considering all the aspects decided to postpone the parayana to Sunday, Nov, 24th, 2013, which incidentally coincided with the beginning of the janma nakshatra celebrations of HH, the Jeer.
The news of postponement and the fixing of the revised date of the HVS parayana at NANGUNERI were duly updated in the Samiti’s web site then and there to enable all our devotees to plan their schedule accordingly and participate in the Samiti’s mega HVS parayana re-scheduled for Sunday, 24th Nov, 2013.
Accordingly, the mahaa MADHWA NAMA/LAKSHMI SHOBHANA and HVS parayanas were duly conducted inside the Nanguneri Temple premises on Sunday, the Nov, 24th, 2013 and the Samiti is happy to inform that the HH Jeer had blessed our parayana session by his august presence and by inaugurating it and conveying his sincere blessings to one and all.
The Samiti sincerely requests all our Madhwa brethren to join us in our endeavour to unite all Madhwas under one platform sans any divisions, for the purpose of their spiritual and religious enlightenment. After all, Sri Hari Vayu Stuti parayana is being conducted for universal peace and well being of all people cutting across all man-made barriers.
We sincerely trust that all our devotees will continue to support the Samiti in its endeavour by participating in the parayanas organized by LHVSMPS TRUST in large numbers and by bringing in more and more people into the Samiti’s fold. The details of all our activities are being updated periodically in our web site (https://harivayu.wordpress.com) and as such we request all our devotees to view it regularly.
We, however, request our devotees to bring to our attention issues if any that they feel will affect our individual identity (assiduously built over the years) and enable the Samiti to take timely and suitable corrective action in order to maintain its name, standard and credibility and continue to serve the cause of Sri Hari Vayu Gurugalu with increased vigour and enthusiasm and in the process enabling all our brethren to improve their Jnana, Bhakti and Vairagya.
Ever In the Services of Sri Hari Vayu Gurugalu,
For & On behalf of the LHVSMPS TRUST-CHENNAI,
(Madhukar K S)
