Which is the World’s oldest Tape Recorder? by Sri Kanchi Paramacharya Mahaswami
Once way back in 1940s/50s someone was conducting an interview with Kanchi Mahaperiyava. That gentleman recorded the interview in a Tape recorder.
@justRamvenkat @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. @Itishree001
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, Everyone was looking at him including Krishna & Veda Vyasa. After he finished 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 Namas will be lost!” Then all prayed to Krishna & 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 & meditate he can convert the Spatika into Waves of Sound & 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 & 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! @hathyogi31

1. There are large number of temples & ashrams in the #Girivalam route around Sri #Arunachaleswarar #temple & the most important ones are: Ashta (eight) lingams representing the eight directions with each one being associated with one or more birth stars.
2. Each lingam addresses different aspects of man’s life & they bless the devotees with different types of benefits. It is believed to be installed by various Devas. Also these lingams have a dominant navagraha & praying to each lingam brings forth various benefits @harshasherni
3. that is being bestowed by that navagraha on the devotees.
Indira Lingam - It is said to be installed by Indira representing East. The dominant navagraha of this lingam are Sun & Venus. Worshiping this lingam blesses the devotees with long life & abundant prosperity. @Nidhi7007

1. #Thread Kailasanathar #temple
Main Deity: Mahadev Shiva. This temple is situated in #Kanchipuram. It is a temple closely connected with the life history of sage Poosalaar (a devotee of Mahadev). This temple was built by the great king Raja Simha Pallava @sattology
2. in 7th CE. It is a treasure house of #sculpture . Mahadev in the temple was worshiped by Shri Vishnu & Sage Naradha. The idol of Mahadev looks graceful with the presence of stripes on it. @Vaidyvoice @RajiIndustani @harshasherni @Itishree001 @Tanvangi17 @VipashaRanjan
3. The demons other than the thiripuraris were by nature very unruly, harassed the celestial to the greatest extent possible. Shri Vishnu, who wants to destroy the demons, came to understand that Mahadev was the only #Divine power who could destroy the demons.
