Which is the World’s oldest Tape Recorder? by Sri Sri Sri Kanchi Paramacharya Mahaswami
Once way back in 1940s or 1950s someone was conducting an interview with Kanchi Mahaperiyava. That gentleman recorded the interview in a Tape recorder.
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.
“When Bhishma Pitamah was glorifying Lord Krishna with Sahasranama i.e,
His 1000 Names, Eeveryone was looking at him including Krishna and Veda Vyasa. After he finished the 1000 Namas, everyone opened their eyes. First to react was Yudhishtra. He said, Pithamaha chanted 1000 glorious names of Vasudeva. Everyone listened but nobody bothered to
note it down. Now the 1000 Namasa will be lost!” Then all prayed to Krishna and asked Him. As usual, He said I also listened like you, so what to do!
Then all prayed to Krishna how to get back the 1000 Namas. Then Krishna said, “It could only be done by Sahadeva & Veda Vyasa
will help to write it!”
Everyone now asked why Sahadeva. Krishna then replied:
“Sahadeva is the only one amongst us wearing Sutha Spatikam the Pure Quartz stone. If he prays to Shiva and meditate he can convert the Spatika into Waves of Sound and then Veda Vyasa can write it!
Then Bhishma & Sahadeva started the Meditation to get the Sound Waves of the 1000 Namas from the Spatika.
The nature of Spatika is that it will capture sounds in a calm environment and this could be got back with proper Meditation of Maheshwara, who is Swethambara & Spatika.
So the World’s earliest tape recorder is this Spatika which gave us this wonderful Vishnu Sahasranamam!
From the Spatika recording, came the Grantha Book to us through Veda Vyasa.
When Mahaperiyava explained it in such a manner, Everyone were stunned!
