Dr. Thiagarajan, Sanskrit Master, Visiting from India

Dr. Thiagarajan Rajagopalan arrived from Chennai yesterday and is our special guest for a week. Saravananathaswami is hosting him today with a grand tour. Here they are up on top of the temple watching the gold leaf work in progress.

A retired professor who was head of the Sanskrit department at Presidency College Chennai, we hired him to produce quality recordings of our Ganesha puja and other chants which can now be found here:


He had a strong desire to visit Kauai Aadheenam, so instead of taking cash payment for the recordings, we sponsored his ticket to Kauai.

He’s been on a mission to help revive Sanskrit and Vedic chanting, producing dozens and dozens of audio CDs of beautiful chants.

Many of his CDs can be found at www.musicandchants.com.

Hinduism Today magazine reported on his efforts.
