Santosh Kumar Ayalasomayajula (षण्मातुरः)

Santosh Kumar Ayalasomayajula, is 'षण्मातुरः' or 'षण्णां मातृणां पुत्रः' in detail, which means 'The son of six (divine) mothers' as he considers the six great goddesses viz. Parvati, Ganga, Lakshmi, Bhudevi, Saraswati, and Gayatri, as his own mothers, and sees himself as an infant in their laps. Together with their respective consorts he considers them as his own parents. He considers their children such as Ganesha, Skanda, Sanatkumara, Narada, Pradyumna etc., as his own siblings; in fact, not different from himself. He loves these six mothers very dearly, and equally loves the divine fathers; however, he has offered his 'devotion' only to Mahadeva! Hence he stands for lord Shiva safeguarding him from his haters. One would know him better from his writings.

          The Hare Krishnas have unlimited resources behind them – they have bought an alleged mainstream scholar to assert Srimad Bhagavatam is more authentic

          http://www.rci.rutgers.edu/~edbryant/works/vaishnava_dpbp.pdf

          The ostensibly mainstream Journal of Vaishnava Studies is a Hare Krishna front. This bit of nastiness is on par with Iyengar nastiness “sarvebhyo Vaishnavebhyo namah” which they recite at their sacraments. Actually the Iyer “Sarvebhyo Brahmanebhyo namah” is also nasty and should be changed to something more universal.

      Iyengars are going to court even today about their vadakalai thenkalai storm in a teacup. I’m wondering if we should sue Iyengar temples, vekukkudi, Dushyant Sridhar et al. and force them to declare that they are followers of Iyengarism and not Hinduism. When donations dry up, they’ll see reason pretty fast. Look how smoothly they have adapted Ganesha into Iyengarism, although Siva dvesha flourishes.

        Thank you Ma. I saw your beautiful depictions of the dasamahavidyas. Id you yourself did those drawings and paintings, you have a good artistic hand too 🙂

          I haven’t done anything. Mā Nīlasarasvatī injected these depictions into my mind while Mā Ekajațā drew them by using me as an instrument. Hence, the credit goes Mā Tārā alone. _/|\_

          Dear Santosh and Sohini,
          Here is a compilation of information regarding Mahāvidyā Tārā from various Tańtra Śāstras. If interested, you can refer to the following link:

      I think I have seen through the mystery of why toxic vaishnavites want to claim Rudra in the satarudriyam is Vishnu. Here I only mean Iyengars of the South, the Bengali vaishnavite venom is expressed through the Gaudiyas/Hare Krishnas.

      Apparently, when you recite the Yajur Veda you have to recite the whole thing and there is the SataRudriyam sitting there staring them in their hateful face. Thats why toxic sites like Narayanastra go through contortions to claim it refers to Vishnu. Now a great Hindu saint like Sri Aurobindo claims there is almost an identity of Rudra and Vishnu in the Rig Veda- but these haters are selective. They claim any name like Siva or Rudra or Mahadeva refers to Vishnu when it suits them When none of these tricks work, they say Vishnu is the antaryami.

      The story of Ganga is in both epics and Mahabharata assets the supremacy of Lord Siva by Ganga’s mouth:

      “Lomaca said.—’Ganga, the goddess saluted by the world, having heard these words of the king, was well pleased, and spake to Bhagiratha the following words,—0 great king! I am prepared to do what thou dost ask me: there is no doubt therein. But when I shall descend from the sky to the earth, the force of my fall will be difficult to sustain. O protector of men! in the three worlds there exists none who is able to sustain the same, excepting Siva, the most praiseworthy of gods, the great Lord with the throat of sable blue. O (prince) of a powerful arm! obtain the favour, by practising austerities, -of that same Siva—giver of boons……………….

      Thus ends the hundred and eighth Section in the tirthayatrji of the Vana Parva.

      There is one sloka in Ramayana that supports the “vishnupadi” story of Ganga: But the style is very modern and it is certainly a Vaishnavite interpolation: If one accepts that – Ganga’s association with Vishnu has no Vedic or Itihasic sanction. Whereas the Bhageeratha story is sanctioned by both Itihasas.

      2: The river has originated from the Feet of Sri Vishnu; She is Divine and sinless, and the destroyer of Sins.

      Hateful Vaishnavism seems to be the preserve of South Indian Iyengars (who are continuing their hate in the U.S. also) and Bengali Gaudiyas – who have exposed Hinduism to the vultures of the Hare Krishna movement.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxR-9014vvw

      Here is a senior priest at the Badri temple – records as a sthala purana (that supersedes all other sources) the srivatsa mark on Vishnu’s chest coming from Lord Siva’s trishul. Vishnuic sources regard everything as a boxing match and there are many vaishnava sources for Lord Siva getting strangled to make his throat blue/black. This majestic, peaceful priest also says you can worship the deity as whatever you want – Siva or Ganesha or Vishnu and so forth.

        Let’s put an end to this discussion on how srivaishnavas and gaudiyas have done damage. It was informative, and it has been discussed a lot, so it is time to end this pls.

          I think you are not recognizing whats going on right now. For comparative Indo-European Linguistics, all Westerners needed was the Rig Veda – and the best scholars of Vedic Sanskrit and Rig Veda are Westerners. Indians don’t come close remotely. Both secular and Hare Krishna “scholars” from the west have now heavily invaded the Puranas and Upanishads, and they may overwhelm published material and permanently change Hinduism (for example, the encyclopedia Britannica article on Siva is by Wendy Doniger). Srivaishnavas and Indian Gaudiyas are small fry compared to westerners, but will act as Mir Jaffars as needed.

            I understand the issue. For such areas we have Rajiv Malhotra working against western digestion and attack on our scriptures. Point is valid, those who have abilities, should fight the west and safeguard Hinduism.

        i am a Bengali and a very proud Bengali at that, but if there’s one thing i hate about Bengalees is these gaudiya vaishnavas………. a real shame…… i mean in my family krishna is worshipped vastly, many bengalees worship krishna as their Ishta, but these gaudiyas have made bhakti a bussiness, their bhakti is demolishing true hinduism, their little knowledge is endangering our hinduism.

    This Iyer-Iyengar thing is infantile, but Iyengars are really hateful and there is a risk that they would sell out to the Hare Krishnas and work for the Christianization of India. Non-Iyengars should stop going to Iyengar temples and putting money in the Hundi. Temples that deny Siva, Ganesha et al.are not Hindu.

    This conversation explains everything. Lord Siva is like he “finisher” in Baseball – Vishnu pitches 6 or 7 or 8 innings but only Lord Siva can do the really heavy lifting in the last inning. Lord Siva appears in the Mahabharata and Ramayana in a very limited way – bu his appearance is of the essence. All the “fights” Lord Siva has with Vishnuic figures are like a father “fighting” with his baby son and sometimes letting him “win”. Occasionally he teaches the son a real lesson – like killing Narasimha and using his skin as seat.

    “those who have abilities, should fight the west and safeguard Hinduism.”

    Please don’t sell yourself short – this blog is doing a great job and maintains good standards of scholarship. Thats where we can beat Westerners – to secular westerners our scriptures are just texts to be mined for publications – whereas these scriptures live in our flesh and blood.

    But if the Hare Krishnas combine their money power (a Ford heir has given them millions), proselytization and one-sided scholarship, they can indeed overwhelm Hinduism as we know it. Your blog is a small lamp fighting this darkness.
