Once way back in 1940/50s someone was conducting an interview with Kanchi Mahaperiyava. That gentleman recorded the interview in a Tape recorder.
@KanchiMatham
Periyava then posed a question:
“Does anyone know which is the oldest known tape recorder?”
Nobody was able to answer. Then Mahaperiyava asked another question:
“How did Vishnu Sahasranamam come to us?”
Everyone said Bhishma Pitamah gave it.
All agreed. Then Mahaperiyava posed
another query:
“When all were listening to Vishnu Sahasranamam, who took Notes at Kurukshetra thousands of years back?”
Again silence.
Mahaperiyava started replying to everyone.

Today would like to share about
Sri Brahmapureeswarar Kovil, near Trichy,
Tamil Nadu
Main Deity : Sri Brahmapureeswarar (Bhagwan Brahma).
Ambal (Consort) : Brahma Nayagi
Holy Water : Brahma Theertham.
Sthal Vruksham : Magizha (Spanish cherry) tree.
Prominence of the Shrine : This is yet another spectacular Dravidian architectural marvel, the Brahmapureeswar Kovil. Not known to many, this kovil is tucked away on the outskirts of the Trichy city at a serene village near Tirupattur. After a 30 km drive from Trichy,
take left and a 6 km drive through the beautiful village side would take you to the Brahmapureeswarar Kovil. An Early morning visit is recommended for a great #spiritual ambience. The main deity worshiped here is the Bhagwan Brahmapureeswarar, an avatar of Mahadev Shiva.

Science behind Gowtram Genetics - Do you know why every time you sit in a puja the priest asks you for Gowtra? What is Gowtram system? Why do we have this? Why do we consider this to decide marriages? Why should sons carry the gowtram of father, why not daughter?
How/why does gowtra of a daughter change after she gets married? What is the logic? In fact this is an amazing genetic science we follow.
Let's see the science of genetics behind gowtra systems.
The word GOWTRA formed from two Sanskrit words GAU (means cow) Trahi (means shed)
Gowtra means cowshed. Gowtra is like cowshed protecting a particular male lineage.
We identify our male lineage/gowtra by considering to be descendants of the 8 great MahaRishis (Saptarishis + Bharadwaja MahaRishi). All the other gowtras were evolved from these only.
