Samkshepa dharma sastram-A tamil book on rules and rituals of iyers
(A great gift of Maha Preriyava to all the iyers)
Realizing that the book Vaidhantha Deekshitheeyam, the only book giving in details the law of rites and rituals of Iyers was not easily available, the late Paramacharya of Kanchi Ordered , Sri Manjakkudi Venkatrama Sastrigal, who was one of his disciples, to make a selection from this book and seek the help of Sri E.S.Ramamurthy Sastrigal for translating it in to Tamil. This book was published by Heritage India Educational Trust, Mylapore, Madras as per the wishes of Paramacharyal. The great sage also told the publisher that there should not be any copy right to this book. This book was named as “Samkshepa Dharma Sashthram (Summary rules of Dharmic life)” and was first published in 1985.Maha periyava also told the publishers that it should be sold at cost price and there should not be any copy right so that any one can copy or translate and sell it.
One of my scholarly friend requested me to translate it and put it on my web .I did it in the year 2005. This has been so far referred to by 20 lakh people in my web(started in 2010.
Whenever you are having any doubt on our rites and rituals , please refer to it My contribution is nothing .You can copy, paste, publish as pdf or even print it .You need not even acknowledge me
