Mahaa parayana at Mazuvanchery – near Guruvayur, Kerala – May 9 & 10 2015

Hare Srinivasa!

Lakshaavarti HariVayuStuthi Mantra Parayana Samiti trust (LHVSMPS Trust) has planned to organize a mahaa parayana at Mazuvanchery mahadeva temple located between Thrissur and Guruvayur – Sri Krishna Kshetram.

The Krishna idol in this Guruvayur temple is believed to be the family deity of Sri Krishna himself during krishna avatar named as Adikesava Perumal. This idol during the end of krishna avatar was saved from the destruction by Sri Brahaspati (Guru of lords) and Sri Vayu Devuru and was reinstated in Kerala by them which was named as “Guru-Vayur” and is known as guruvayurappan. The idol is in baby form and this place is a seat of many miracles.

At Mazuvanchery, the branch of national heritage center has developed a library and museum comprising of very valuable information relating our vedas to science and technology. A visit to this place shall give a treasure of knowledge and a new prespective of our sanathana dharma-which was practiced by residents living at banks of sindu rivar- hence known as sindu dharma- which over a period of time became hindu dharma

This is the back ground in choosing this location which is having calm, quite and serene environment.
Thrissur which is the railway station located enroute to ernakulam (cochin) from Chennai/ Bangalore is well connected by trains/ buses. The place of parayana is ~40 minutes by bus from Thrissur and 30 minutes from guruvayur, situated almost midway.

The parayanas both MadwaNaama for ladies on 9th May and HariVayuStuthi for gents on 10th May are open to our regular parayana members and their families only.

    Participants below the age of 25 years will not be charged registration fee. But the Senior Citizens will be charged.!!!!

      Dear Sri Jagannathan,
      80% of participants of our Maha Parayanas in the past were senior citizens only.That too 50% of them attend Maha Parayanas only.If we exclude Sr. citizens from payment , we can as well do away with the registration amount.Further,Samiti is interested in Youth to attend this Mazhuvancherry parayana because of the wealth of information and exposure they will get by visiting the Library at the Heritage center.In spite of the concession given we may receive participants in this group in single digit only.

      Regards,

      S.Venugopal

    Dear Sajjanas,
    Hare Srinivasa,

    When we had a meeting at Vidyapeetta last week regarding registration for Maha Parayana on 9th and 10th, there were some apprehensions about the following::

    1. Hot summer in south during this period;
    This place Mazhuvancherry Heritage center is like an Ashram with lot of big trees such as Banmian, neem and Mango.
    Place of parayana and stay are high roof open sheds with low level fans and Samiti is arranging Diesel Generators to ensure continuance electric Power.Hard ship due to hot weather need not be a concern as there are many good take away from this Heritage center which houses a Library, Museum from which a treasure of Knowledge is available.

    2. Transport from Trichur railway station and back:
    Guides will be stationed at Railway Station to guide the participants on Saturday 9th morning.On request to arrange vans at station to pick up people, the possibilities will be looked into during our visit on 22nd March to Guruvayur.Same for Dharshan to Guruvayur temple.

    3.Since there are only two trains at night from Bangalore, there were problems in train reservation.

    There is a day train from Bangalore which will reach Trichur in the evening for which seats are available even one week in advance.Persons can book through this train on 8th morning and reach Guruvayur straight to have Dharshan and reach Mazhuvancherry heritage center for night stay..Or else people can book by bus to Trichur on 8th night.

    All these issues can be sorted out in a meeting in 3rd week of April after people make their travel arrangements.

    There were questions about registration of non parayana members.THIS will be Considered at the discretion of State Administrators in consultation with area coordinators.

    Thanks to samiti for organizing a mega event near Guruvayoor. But unfortunately, due to vacation period (May), tickets are unavailable in trains and unable to book for this mega program. Request Samiti Organizers to postpone this event to a future date to help public to book tickets in advance.
