I spoke to Shri Chandra Ghanapatigal on Oct 5th. He said after the birth of his son, His father Shri Gopala Ghanapatigal is the one who has taken up on him to start and run the Veda Patashala in Mylapore. His grandson, that is, Shri Chandra Ghanapatigal’s son’s Upanayanam was held at Kanchi Mahaswamigal’s adhistanam in Kanchi, when he was 4 years old.
Then HH Shankara Vijayendra Saraswati Swamigal Bala Periyava told, “Why don’t you start teaching Vedas to your son?”
It was then they started teaching Vedas, first to their son only. After a few months they had Darshan of Bala Periyava and He asked them, “How is the Veda Adhyananam going on for your son? His face looks a bit sad. He needs company of other children. Shall I send 5 more kids to learn Vedas from you?”
He said yes, Then Periyava turned to Ghanapatigal’s wife and asked her, “Will you take care of these children’s needs?” And she said, “Yes”!
Shankara. What stupendous blessing. I shed tears at their magnanimity,
Now he is teaching Vedas to 5 children and they are stay with them in their apartment. Here are some beautiful pictures from the Patashala:
We all do so many things for our studies, for our music class, for our dance class or to start any of our new ventures on the holy Vijayadasami day. How about helping a Veda Patashala, by doing something this Deepavali to light up the faces of these kids by providing the sweets, new clothes, crackers etc, on Vijayadasami day Oct 8th? :)))
