About the Patashala

Sri Akilandesvari Sametha Sri Jambunatha temple at Tiruvanaikoil (near Tiruchirapalli) is located in Tiruvanaikoil, about 3 kms from Trichy, and adjacent to Srirangam. Tiruvanaikoil is one of the Panchabhoota Kshetras representing Water, hence given the name Appu Sthalam. One can see water constantly oozing out of the ground near the Shiva Linga. 

Sri Adi Sankara had adorned the murthy of the Goddess (Akhilandesvari) with ear-ornaments (Tatanka) containing srichakra . He also installed a Vinayaka directly opposite to the originally fierce Goddess to pacify her and present her in the current peaceful and benevolent form.

Kanchi Kamakoti Veda Patashala and Vriddhashramam in Thirvanaikkaaval is a storied Veda Patashala where Paramacharya stayed and also performed Tatankapratishta for Goddess Akhilandeswari as his first act as peetadhipathi after his vedabhyasam in Mahendramangalam. It is also the veda patashala where pudu periyava stayed during his veda abhyasam. Our acharyas have also stayed here many times and performed the Chandramouleesvara puja.

Importance of Daanam in Kali Yuga

तप: परं कृतयुगे त्रेतायां ज्ञानमुच्यते

द्वापरे यज्ञमेवाहुः दानमेव कलौ युगे ।।

Sage Parashara says in Dharma shastra regarding Yuga dharma “Visesha (special or essential) dharma in Kruta yuga is Tapas (Penance); In Treta Yuga is Jnana (Knowledge); In Dvapara Yuga is Yagna (Sacrifice) and In Kali Yuga is Daanam (Charity)”.
