Dear Friends,

Hope you understood the meaning of the title ‘Jeevema Sharadhah Shatham’.  Yes, they mean ‘We will live hundred years’. They are from Atharva Veda, one of the four Vedhas of our great Hindu Sanathana Dharma. Vedas are the oldest and the most sacred texts of Hindu Religion.

The words ‘Jeevema Sharadhah Shatam’ are expected to be uttered during    ‘Maadhyanhikam’, ie. while performing the ‘Sandhyavandhanam’ at noon by every Brahmin. Though Sandhyavandhanam is a Nithyakarma to be performed thrice daily without fail by most of the Hindu males, it is seldom followed strictly now a days, thanks to the scant respect we give to our sacred scriptures and also to the words of wisdom of our great Rishis! Even many of the Brahmins do not perform this Nithyakarma now a days, probably due to lack of understanding of its importance or due to their materialistic approach to the life instead of a spiritualistic one! Lack of Samskrutham knowledge is also one of the reasons.  While doing Sandhyavandhanam one does the following  :  Pranayama, Asanas, Vedhadhyayanam, Chiththa Shudhdhi, Meditation, Sidhdhantha Mananam etc.

In this connection I would like to say here that we have to learn a lot from the believers of other religions in respect of obeying the religious injunctions of their Holy Books. Example: Muslims and Christians. They respect their Holy Texts and follow them strictly in their day today life. Most of them pray regularly according to the instructions!

In this blog, I would like to mention various religious injunctions of our Hindu Sanathana Dharma that are to be followed by us in our day to day life which in turn would bestow on us a long and happy life of ‘Sharadhah Shatham’. ie a life of one hundred years  as enjoined in Vedas. The human birth that we have in this world at present is the result of our Punya Karmas done in our previous births. We have to see how we can utilize this precious birth of ours in a judicious manner in upholding our great Sanathana Dharma and its tradition and thereby attain liberation while serving the humanity at large. By strictly following the religious injunctions of our great Rishis and by leading a spiritual life based on Vedhic Tradition, while enjoying the benefits of materialistic life right from the childhood, I am sure a man can definitely live a life of one hundred years or more without any difficulty.

The ‘Pole Star’ like shining example in this connection was the ‘Maha Periyava’ Shri. Chandrasekharendra Saraswathi Maha Swamigal of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam, who lived a wholesome life of one hundred years following the spiritual path! There are other stalwarts like our great Chakravarti Rajagopalachariar alias ‘Rajaji’ and the former Prime Minister of Hindhusthan Shri. Morarji Desai who had also crossed their nineties and led a harmonious life living in the midst of mundane materialistic atmosphere but leading a spiritual life like the great King Janaka of Ramayana.

With our prostrations to the above great Mahapurushas we will see more on the above subject in the ensuing posts.

WithRegards,                                                                                                                           V  Mahadeva Sarma                                                                             – To be continued.



About 'Shubhakara' V Mahadeva Sarma

Managing Trustee, VGS Welfare Trust. Samskrutham Scholar. Blogger. Love Hindhusthan's great heritage and its culture. Interested in the propagation of Samskrutham language which is one of the oldest languages of the world. Love good Music, the best tonic for the MIND and the SOUL. It gives us longevity. We have to spare some time daily to listen to good Music and live a LONG HAPPY and CAREFREE life. Walk more daily and be humorous. Praying the Almighty for a VEDHA PARAYANA MUTT and a GOSHALA in Alamathi village, near Red Hills, Chennai 600052, one of the coolest places in and around Chennai, where my beloved brother and Guru 'Koil Kandaan' Shri V Mrithyunjayan has constructed a 'Srividya Karpaka Vinayakar Temple'. Myself and my Sister Smt Kalyani have come forward to donate our land near the temple for the above purpose. We, the VGS Welfare Trust people, are also ready to take up the above projects. We had been to Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam and conveyed to the Acharyals regarding our above two projects and are fortunate to get their blessings for the same . We are in the look out for our philanthropic relatives who are interested in these projects which were very dear to the heart of 'Maha Periyava' of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam and were like two eyes to him. Infact, Maha Periyava wanted every village in Hindhusthan must have a Vedha Patashala and a Goshala. Let us try to fulfill the dreams of that great saint who lived a wholesome life of one hundred years spreading the tenets of our Hindhu Sanathana Dharma. My pranams to that great Maha Purusha whom many of us had the opportunity of seeing in flesh and blood several times! Since we have land at our disposal, we require about Rs. 20,000,00/- Rs Twenty Lakhs only to make our dreams come true. As such we request our philanthropic relatives who are interested in the above two projects to donate Rs. 1,00,000/- Rs One Lakh only and see their names inscribed in letters of gold in stone along with the names of other donors in the premises of Vedha Parayana Mutt and Goshala to be constructed with their donations in Alamathi village near Red Hills, Chennai 600052. Interested philanthropic relatives are requested to share their ideas with me in this regard. My Phone no. 044 22631075 Cell : 98408 85854 E Mail ID :
