Guidelines To Be Followed by An Acharya And A Sishya

Dear Fellow-Bhagavathas,

It is well known that Swami Desika’s masterpiece ‘Srimath Rahasya-thraya Saaram’ optimally covers all the salient features of the Visishtaadvaitha philosophy. The treatise consists of four parts — Arththaanusaasana (import of important tenets), Sthireekarana (sorting things out), Padha-Vaakya Yojana (syntax, semantics and etymology) and Sampradaya Prakriya (adherence to tradition).

The last-named section comprises three chapters —obligations of the mentor, obligations of the disciple and the conclusion. We shall take a brief look at the first two.

The mentor-disciple relationship is the cornerstone of Srivaishnava Sampradaya. The Saasthras have prescribed the ideal qualities of the Acharya and disciplines to be followed by the Sishya.

Obligations of a mentor

Duties of a disciple

Following the above guidelines whether one is a mentor or a disciple is of paramount importance and it will not only enhance the value of our Sampradaya but also individually benefit us in our spiritual pursuit.

Into the ninth year

The eve of Vaikunta Ekadasi brings to the mind that www.svdd.com has completed eight years, for, it is on this day in 2006 that the website was launched. It has been a great experience for us throughout and hope that you too had a rewarding time by participating in our quizzes and other features. Thank you very much for the same and looking forward to continued participation.

Meet you in the next Note.
