I cannot thank you enough for your whole hearted service. There are thousands and thousands of people like me who have benefitted from your valuable discourses. By Bhagavan’s will and your efforts, neechargal like us are also able to make a step forward.
My parents did a late upanayanam for me and my father himself did pancha samskaram at the same time since we are supposed to be swayam acharyas.
I say supposed to be because neither my father nor my grand father followed anything that needs to be followed by a sri vaishnava let alone being an acharya. I believe that being born in a sri vaishnava family alone cannot make someone a sri vaishnava. And more importantly, samashrayanam for me was done more as a formality. nothing apart from having the chakra and shanka marks were done. I was not given upadesam on rahasya trayam, thiruvaaradhanam etc.
After listening to and understanding the greatness of Sri vaishnava sampradaya, I feel very sad that I did not undergo proper samashrayanam. My intention is not to find faults with my family members instead I am wanting to do it as how it is supposed to do.
can I undergo samashrayanam again from a qualified acharya ?
