Guru Samarpanam

Dear NRI Devotees,

November 17th and 18th were a spectacular cultural extravaganza at the Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam, Kānchipuram. Over 600 children from the Integrated Pātashalas of the Sri Matham gathered from different places and showcased their talents. Art, projects, dances, skits, demonstrations, Hari Katha by Vishakha Hari followed one after the other in quick succession, punctuated by quiz contests for the boys and girls.

Guru Samarpanam, began on a very high note with an incredible anugraha bhashanam by the Jagadguru. He started out by chanting one Shlokam relevant to each Patashala’s area of specialisation and went on to explain the importance and significance of each. A MUST HEAR!
