Jai Shankar!

As indicated in the previous Advisory, Shrī Chitrāpur Mat͟h (SCM), Shirālī, it's branch Mat͟h-s and affiliated temples and entities (excepting BeṅgaĪūru Mat͟h, Khār Mat͟h and Kārlā Durgāparmeshwarī Temple) have opened since Makara Saṅkrānti  (14th January 2021).  Adherence to guidelines, norms etc, issued by the local authorities is being ensured at these locations.

SCM Shirālī is open to visitors from 6 AM to 1 PM and from 4 PM to 8.30 PM every day. Prevailing social distancing norms and other guidelines are adhered to at all times, within the Math precincts.

This Advisory is regarding providing stay accommodation for sādhaka-s in the Mat͟h precincts:
Due to the impact of the pandemic, SCM and its affiliated institutions are functioning with minimal staff. Many non-primary activities and facilities which were being provided pre-pandemic, have been scaled down or even halted, and will be restored only after review of the situation.

Providing accommodation to sādhaka-s is being kept to the barest minimum.  Hence, sādhaka-s are requested to seek accommodation facilities only when unavoidable, and it may please be ensured that the Administrative Office is contacted well in advance for this purpose and confirmation obtained regarding availability.

Girvanaprathishta (Sanskrit)

Parama Pujya Sadyojat Shankarashram Swamiji's love and reverence for Sanskrit is well known. Following His instructions that Sanskrit learning must be made easy and freely available to everybody who desires to learn it, a group of sadhakas worked to formulate a Step by Step learning programme.
The lessons that you see on our website are designed to take a student from 'I do not know a word of Sanskrit' to 'I can't believe that I can decipher this on my own!'
