OM SARAVANA BHAVA
Kanda Sashti Kavacha Parayanam
Sunday, 22 October 2017
@ Sri Thendayuthapani Temple, 15 Tank Road, S 238065 (Wedding Hall)
Kanda Sashti Kavacham (கந்த சஷ்டி கவசம்) was composed by Sri Devaraya Swamigal in 19th century. Devotees attest that regular chanting of this kavacham resolves all the predicaments of life and provides enormous mental strength.
Sri Devaraya Swamigal asserts in this composition:
கந்தர் சஷ்டி கவச மிதனைச்
சிந்தை கலங்காது தியானிப்பவர்கள்
ஒருநாள் முப்பத்தாறுரு கொண்டு
ஓதியே செபித்து உகந்து நீறணிய
அஷ்ட திக்குள்ளோர் அடங்கலும் வசமாய்
"With religious fervor and read, Thirty six times a day
This Skanda Sashti Kavacham, Which has been composed,
By the young Deva Rayan, And meditate on that God with concentration,
And wear the sacred ash, Will get the great blessings,
Of all the Devas from all eight directions, And the Guardians of the eight directions."
Guided by this special mention by Sri Devaraya Swamigal, Sabha is organising a mass chanting of Skanda Sashti Kavacham for 36 times in one single day for the welfare of every one. This is also scheduled on the day after Skanda Sashti adding further significance to the chanting. The chanting will commence early in the morning and is likely to take about 8 hours. Vibhuti will be kept in the Pooja and will be offered to devotees in the end.
