Srivaishnavam  Parambaryam, Traditions &  The Culture that stands Class apart from others

Aum, Sweet Om, The PraNava Mantra of Universe

Essence of Sanathana Dharma & Srivaihnavam Practices, an Introduction to this website contents.

I dedicate these pages to my father Late Sri T. S. Ramabathrachariar, [(of Mukkur) Ex. Village Magistrate, Ladavaram Village, Arcot Taluk, {formerly with Wallajah Taluk but now in Arcot Taluk} North Arcot District in Tamilnadu] whose teachings on Srivaishnavam & Srivaishnavism were very instrumental in bringing out these pages.

Though this site is mainly for the beginners, others too might find these pages very useful, I hope. A new section in the FAQ, for asking any questions related to the Lifestyles and Religion – Srivaishnavism is added for the readers benefit.

All the other sites are dedicated to the Azhwaars (the 12 great Gurus or teachers who propagated ethics and values of Srivaishnavam in poetic scripts named Divyaprabhandham which is purely in Tamil and known as Dravida Sagaram), Aacharyans (the Gurus), Divya Prabhandam, Divya Kshetrams or 108 Divya Desam (the sacred places or sanctuaries where the temples of Lord Shri Mahavishnu are located), Sri Ramanuja (a great scholar and founder of the Visishtaathvaitham), Sri Desikar (a great scholar who propagated VISHISHTAATHVAITHAM and the founder Guru of Shri Ahobila Mutt), Emperumaal (Lord Vishnu Himself), All sorts of Srivaishnavam materials such as slokhas, Vedas, Temples, Gods and Goddesses. But none of these sites give the reasons and inner meaning for practicing the rituals. If rationale thoughts are just posted, the younger generation will surely understand, benefit and appreciate it. They might even follow the system more authentically. Here I am not giving any versus or slokhas, but only giving the inner meaning of Srivaishnavism & Srivaishnavam culture and its practices.

In these pages, I try to give a fair picture of Srivaishnavism, Pride, Rituals and its reasons & beliefs in brief. In simple words the rationale behind practices of Srivaishnavam. There may be some points here unacceptable to some, might be someone patting me , a few even against this in Toto.

Whatsoever it may, I am honestly trying my level best to be impartial and post here in these pages whatever I learnt from my Guru, my father and the Society in General.

If these columns get some value, let the praise go to the Lord Sriman NArAyaNa, The Creator of this Universe. If any mistakes and misquotes found, then I am solely responsible for the lapse, and sincerely apologize for the same.

For the needy one, Tharppana Sankalpams in Tamil and English are given. Please follow the links and download the fonts if you want it in Tamil. For the convenient of the visitors, a drop-down menu is given in each page for easy navigation. (Excepting in the Home page). Please let me have your suggestion and comments to improve this website’s contents and articles.

Frequently I am questioned by curious young persons from our Srivaishnavites culture, for explanations and methodology of this Sect’s routine practices on Srivaishnavism. Within my limited knowledge, I try to convince them of the available facts. You’re most welcome to ask a question related to the subject.

Whatever I learnt from my beloved father and within my limited knowledge that I gained through some studies and experience, I am passing it here through these pages. A regular updates will be made to these pages as often as it require. Hope you enjoy visiting. Please sign my Guest Book with your comments and suggestions, so as to enable me to improve the contents. Also please inform your friends and relatives about this site to pay a visit to this site. Since this is a free website, including the matrimonial services, that are offered for free, this is the only way I seek the visitors to spread word, as I am not in a position to advertise about the site. 

Articles and materials on Srivaishnavam are most welcome for publication on these pages. Please send/share the same and I shall publish in this site with your name and address. 

Thank you Very Much,
