The samadhi of AryAmba is the holiest spot in kAladi.. it marks the place where Sankara performed the rites of his mother helped only by two families - one which lifted her head and another the feet on to the pyre.. centuries later sri sri sacchidaananda
ShivAbhinava nrusimha bharathi set out in the quest of kaladi with the support of the maharaja of travancore (mUlam TiruNAL rAma varma) - officials with various clues were able to identify a place
along the poorna where there was evidence a shift in the course of the river.. when his holiness came e sat in meditation and he saw a smiling apparition of an old lady welcoming him silently.. taking this as a blessing he went forth to a black stone pillar where namboodri women
Where namboodri women were lighting lamps for centuries. This he identified as the exact spot where the holy mother was cremated.. at that place a temple was constructed and the kumabishekam done in 1910

Once an avadoota vairAgi from the north came to sringeri. The tungA was in spate. To have a darshan of sri sri chandrasekara bharathi mahAswamigal (SA) one had to cross the river on a boat. The others who were on the boat were not keen on taking the vairAgi with them. They
rebuffed his attempts at getting on the boat forcibly. That they two high officials from the Mysore Sircar had come to the southern shore and were waiting at the adishtAna of the purvAcArya in order to meet srimad AcharyaL. Srimad AcharyaL stepped out of the mutt to meet them and
started walking toward the adishtAnam. From the north there was the sound of a conch. Immediately srimad AcharyaL ignoring the officials at the adistaanam started rushing toward the river. He saw the avadoota vairAgi a jatAdAri with a conch all wet coming from the river. Seeing

In sringeri during navarAtri suvaasini pUja is a special feature everyday. Once on mahAnavami a lady came with the desire that if she could participate as a suvAsini she would also get a sAri. However on that day the list of suvAsinis to be worshipped had been finalised and she
did not get an opportunity. She was very sad. Having come though she decided to get chandramouLiswara theertham eat and leave. As sri sri chandrashekhara bharathi mahAswamigal was giving theertha she extended her hand. Seeing the sorrow in her face sri AcharyaL enquired the cause
She narrated the intention in her coming and disappointment. SA asked her to step aside and wait and proceed to give theertha to the others. Almost at the end a brAhmaNa came rushing in and extended his hand. Sensing his anxiety SA asked "where are u coming from?" He said "today

Even if a community of crows scatter let our community stay together

A simple ritual with a simple prayer - for family and community done the day after pongal

Adding to this an incident from the #raghuvamsam where dilipa was prepared to exchange his life for the life of
nandini the cow of vaSiSta

For millennia cattle have sustained us worked for us enriched us

A day to thank them and find ways to ensure that when they have outlived our need they don't have to visit the abattoir

From the go suktam
O Cows, ye fatten e’en the worn and wasted, and make the unlovely beautiful to look on.
Prosper my house, ye with auspicious voices. Your power is glorified in our assemblies.

Crop goodly pasturage and be prolific drink pure sweet water at good drinking places..

Around 1940 in Kolkata some persons started building a Hanuman temple. Some kALi upAsakas objected to this stating that this being kAli's katta there cannot be a temple for any other devata. This became a big dispute and ended in court. The judge who examined this addressed both
parties said - this being an issue of religion it will be better for an elder in your religion to make a decision. If both of you agree on one i intend to send the records to him and ask him to make a determination. Both parties decided that if the sringeri AcArya makes a
determination on the matter they will abide by it. The records were sent to sri sri chandrashekhara bharathi mahaswamigaL who as at that time in kAladi. Srimad AcharyaL sent his opinion " while kASi is sri viSveSwaras kSetra there are temples there for madhava durga and hanumAn
