Sama Veda Sabha held
12-14 Aug 2014

Sama Veda Sabha was held at Shrimatam with the blessings and in the benign presence of HH Jagadguru Pujyashri Jayendra Saraswathi Shankaracharya Swamiji and HH Jagadguru Pujyashri Shankara Vijayendra Saraswathi Shankaracharya Swamiji. A large number of scholars of Sama Veda participated. In addition to the chanting of the Sama Veda, discourses were given.

Vedas are the highest source of knowledge. Among the four  Vedas,  Sama Veda  is the most unique as it has the Mantra portion and the Gana ( music) portion as well.  This unique nature requires learning of the Veda twice, i.e.  in the Mantra form and again in the Gana form.  Families belonging to Sama Veda are less in numbers when compared to Yajur Veda in southern India. With the intention of encouraging  the study  and chanting of Sama Veda covering all its aspects available presently and preserving its unique identity,  “The Sama Veda  Sabha “ was constituted by Their Holiness Shankaracharyas of the Sarvajna  Peetam  Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam  of Kanchipuram.  This Sabha was  inaugurated on the 25 of November, 2012 ,on the auspicious occasion of Brindavana Dwadasi  at Shankaralayam,  Chetpet Chennai. 

Similar sabhas were held in Chennai and Mumbai earlier.
