Mana, the abode of brahmins is usually the centre of culture, education and scale of wisdom. In Kerala, these manas were said to be established by Lord Parasurama in order to fabricate a new texture of social customs and traditions. Namboothiries from North were brought by him as a part of this novel concept. Suryakaladi Mana, one of the six richest focal points of Mantra practitioners, is renowned for Mantravada, the science of Mantra and for Lord Ganesha worship. This Mana, situated in Nattassery, Kottayam Dist., Kerala is enriched with glorious tradition and legends, believed to have been instituted by Lord Parasurama. The legend goes that Lord Surya appeared in front of an ancestor of this Mana and blessed him with a divine text (Grantha) containing many secret mantras and their proper applications. One male child in each generation is titled Suryan as a reminder of his ancestors tryst with God. The name Suryakaladi owes its incomparable orgin from this illuminating episode of history.

transmitted orally from generations to generations. Holding a great heredity, Suryakaladi Mana observes several traditional customs and practices. The most important aspect is Mantravada or Mantra Sasthra, a process in which discomfort of a person will be removed by using series of Mantras and following certain ritualistic pattern like incantation. The power to practice Mantravada was born from

Lord Parasurama. The eldest male member is assigned to perform Mantravada chiefly but other male members also do it with the guidance from the chief. Mantra rites bear desired results only when done by an upasak (a man) with tapasakti (intense power generated by meditation of Mantras knowledge), with an exactitude and adhering to the timetested heritages. Mantravadam (defi) is an act of purification. In Suryakaladi Mana the practice of Mantras and the connected rituals are mainly done for the well-being of the society and humanity as a whole. Intention is to help the distressed and ailing people to solve their problems and to make their lives, peaceful and contended.

Lord Parasurama is the sixth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. According to the legends, he threw his`axe' from Gokarna to Kanyakumari and created Kerala. Parasurama donated this land to the Brahmins and settled Brahmins in 64 villages. Parasurama had consecrated 108 Shiva temples and 108 Durga temples for the well-being and prosperity of the people in Kerala. He handed over his skills to 'Manas. From Lord Parasurama, Suryakaladi Mana was blessed to practice Mantras for the well-being and protection of the people.

It is believed that the

MAHA GANAPATHI
The First God for getting respect in all yagas! The Lord of Success! The God of education, knowledge, wisdom and wealth! Moreover, the destroyer of evils! In Suryakaladi Mana, the vision of Maha Ganapathi is a union of Shaiva, Vaishnava and Sakteya traditions. Daily Ganapathi Homam is the unique speciality of Mana. Vibhuthi Devi, the wife of Maha Ganapathi is seen sitting on the Lord's lap. Maha Vishnu, Lakshmi Devi, Maheswar, Parvathi Devi, Lord Varaha, Bhoomi Devi, Rati and Manmadan provide incredible power and showers eternal blessings to the Mana.

LORD SURYA
The most powerful and majestic visible God! The source of life and energy! The supreme soul who is the cause and the destruction of universe! The Lord of excellence and wisdom! In Suryakaladi Mana, Lord Surya is being worshipped as Goddess Gayathri Devi. As the Sun God is omnipresent, the worship is done without any idols.

SREE CHAKRA
Sree Chakra is the Lord of all Yantras, formed by nine interlocking triangles that surround and radiate out from the central point-the intersection point between the physical universe and its undisclosed source. It plays crucial role in attracting divine power and yielding supernatural results. In Suryakaladi Mana, Sree Chakra Upasana is performing as per strict family customs and traditions.

legend says that Lord Surya appeared in front of an ancestor of Suryakaladi Mana and blessed him with a divine text containing many secret Mantras along with proper applications. After that, one male child in each generation is named as 'Suryan' as a reminder of his ancestor's relation with God. The name Suryakaladi owes its incomparable origin from this illuminating episode of history.

India is a land marked for her unique culture and Vedic heritage. The quintessence of Indian euthenics can be abridged as Ishtapurtham (observances combined with holy sacrifices aimed at the welfare of mankind). It is in fact the practical exercise of the Tantric and the Vedic refinement which can be diademed as Divine as well as resplendent. Subjected to scientific theories rooted on the ancient spiritual administrations, the significance of Lord Ganapathi accompanied by Goddess Lakshmi is well-defined as the Prime Force supporting the human torso. Every penance is based on the worship of the prime cause. Every prayer is aimed at invoking the Supreme Power. Therefore, the initial laudation of every worship is bestowed on Lord Ganapathi who wards off obstacles. The sacred text of Lalithopakhyanam extols the glory of Lord Ganapathi in an absolute and unique manner. Almost everyone in India is familiar with Ganesha Pooja, Ganesh Upasana and Ganapathi Homam. In the spiritual sphere of Kerala and the

(Soaked grain/Puffed rice) is offered to the Agni by chanting the Ganesha Moola Mantram (The Sacred Eight Letter Hymn invoking Lord Ganapathi) , 3,33,336 times. This will go on until the day that will mark the beginning of Satram namely 27-12-2012. By then, the Agni will be sanctified to the core thanks to the chanting of Ganesha Moola Manthram, libation, feeding the Brahmans and other spiritual procedures. On the marked day, Vanjchakalpalatha Yagam will be performed in the basin with the sanctified Agni as medium. Ever since Agni was kindled in the sacrificial venue, men and women have been pouring in from far and near to Suryakaladi Mana to get initiated into the discipline of the Lords devotees. Today, all of them are ascetics taking part in the Japayanjam (chanting service) as a gesture of their devotion to Lord Ganapathi. Gana Gandharva Dr.K.J. Yesudas, Mrs. Prabha Yesudas and film director Sri. Jayaraj are a few among the personages who have joined the Japayanjam.

spiritual orbits of states outside Kerala, Lord Maha Ganapathi is accorded not just high but the highest rank among the Deities. He is invoked to adorn the First Place during the initiation ceremonies especially during the inculcation of penances like the Sreevidya Deeksha. For the first time in Kerala, All India Ganesha Purana Tatva Sameeksha Satram is being organized under the auspices of the ancient Suryakaladi Mana to affirm the doctrine of Ekam Sath (The state of Being One). This is to glorify the ubiquity of the Eternal Truth. To accomplish the doctrine of Ishtapurtham, Yagam will be performed following Vanjcha Kalpa Latha p r o c e d u r e o f s p i r i t u a l l i t u r g y . The Yagam aims at the well-being of the human race at large. As a prelude to the grand event the sacred Agni (Holy Fire) was kindled / lit up in the Acharyakunddam (Holy Sacrificial Altar ) in the Sacrificial Venue churning Arani (The twigs of Chamata i.e. Tree Butea Frondosa) on the auspicious day of Pathamudayam that coincided with the 23rd of April 2012. Ever since Haviss / Lajam

Great preceptors of India like His Holiness Sri. Sri. Jagadguru Bharathi Teertha (Sringeri Mutt), Sri. Sri. Ravi Shankar, Mata Amritanandamayi, Dr. Veerendra Heggade (Dharmasthala), Jagadguru Sankaracharya of Shri Ramachandrapura Math, H. H. Sri. Padmanabha Dasa Uthradom Tirunal Marthanda Varma (The Maharaja of Travancore), Sri. Praveen Togadia (VHD) etc. are but a few veterans who have appreciated this venture and have offered their whole hearted support for the same. It indeed is a long pursuit Divine and Lofty. Its objectives are high and far reaching. Nonetheless we are confident about the successful conclusion of the Satram with of course the blessings of Lord Ganapathi. We do solicit the support and cooperation of all the devotees of the Lord across the Land of India and beyond. By the grace of Lord Ganapathi, the Suryakaladi Ganesha Purana Tatva Sameeksha Satram is all set to take off. The Sacred Agni of the venue of the Vanjchakalpalatha Yagam is going to illumine the whole world. The auspicious event, no doubt, will be a turning point in the Vedic history of our land. At this point, Suryakaladi is happy to welcome you all to partake in this great penance and invoke Him, the Lord who nullifies all evil and showers blessing on all of us!

This is a very special ritual prescribed only in the Secret Text (Grandha) of Suryakaladi Mana. Here, 8 elements (Ashta Dravyas) are seperatly consicreted in different Kalashas (pots) put around the altar. Among these elements 4 are in solid state (sugarcane, jack fruit, banana (Kadali) and Apoopam) are put at each corners starting from South East. The other 4 elements are in liquid state (Sugarcane juice, honey, ghee and milk) and are put at East, South, West and North sides of the Main Altar (Agni). Each dravyas are offered consicutively where solid stuff is offered as Homa and the liquid stuff is offered as Vasordhara (continuos flow through Mahasruk to the Holy Fire) while Vaidiks chant Veda Mantras (Ganesha Adharvasheersham etc). The Agni represents Maha Lakshmi Shahita Maha Ganapathi and is visualised amidst the Surya Mandala. The result is prosperity physical, mental and spiritual.

Goddess Sambathkari is mentioned in the Lalitha Sahasranama. She is believed to have appeared from the Goddess Lalitha Devi.
