Cochin Tourist Destinations - Kalady


On the right of the river Periyar, or 'Poorna' as it is also known , there is a tiny village cradled in green fields, called Kalady. This is an important pilgrimage center since it was the birth place of Sri Adi Sankaracharya, one of India's foremost philosopher saints who preached the monistic or 'advaita' philosophy. Adi Sankaracharya Sri Sankaracharya was born here as the only son of Sivaguru and Aryamba, a Kerala Brahmin couple. His early life was marked by several miraculous exploits that singled him out for a divine role. It was he who played a major role in saving the Hindu religion from the ritualistic and superstitious state to which it had degenerated. At his birth, astrologers had predicted among other things, that he would become a 'sarvajana' or an all-knowing sage. The extraordinarily intelligent boy mastered the Vedas and completed his studies when he was merely 16 years of age. He then started his quest for truth and spent many years of his life preaching the Vedic Dharma as well as its universality and superiority.He established four 'maths' in four sections of the country-Sringeri, Dwaraka, Joshimath and Puri. His commentaries on the Upanishads, Brahmasutra and the Bhagavad Gita hold relevance even today. At the age of 32 , Adi Sankara attained 'mahasamadhi'.
