    Sri Jayendra Saraswathi will be remembered for reaching out to the marginalised groups of Tamil Nadu and abroad, and for his courageous effort at course correction despite belonging to the orthodox circles.


    Sri Jayendra Saraswathi (1935-2018)
    by Aravindan Neelakandan

    My earliest memory of Sri Jayendra Saraswathi was when he visited our town soon after the Mandaikaadu riots of 1982. Hindus of Kanyakumari district were living under fear and a sense of siege. Whenever the church bell tolled the mobs would assemble and begin a systematic attack on Hindu villages. This itself was preceded by years of hate propaganda against Hindus and attempts to change the names of villages and towns. Christian clergy conducted themselves almost like extra-constitutional rulers. There was even an attempt to change the name of Kanyakumari into Kanni Mary (Virgin Mary). Almost no traditional Hindu head came to the rescue of the Hindus. Kundrakudi Adigal - an Adheenam close to Dravidianists came and visited the church officials and in the name of peace spoke almost like the spokesperson for the Christians. He even refused to hear the grievances of the Hindus.


    It was at this time that Sri Jayendra Saraswathi, then junior pontiff of Kanchi mutt, came to our district. He visited the distraught Hindus who were almost refugees in their own district. He talked for hours with them. He talked with various Hindu community leaders - most of them were not Brahmins. But the significance of those things never registered then. What we felt as Hindus then was that we were not left alone to the predatory elements of a foreign-funded aggression but that we have seers who would come and stand by us. Since then under his guidance Kanchi mutt assisted many Hindu activities in the district. To us, in Kanyakumari district, Sri Jayendra Saraswathi became a beacon of Hindu solidarity. As I grew up, I started understanding that the Advaita of Sri Ramakrishna-Vivekananda tradition as well as the Hindutva of Deoras cannot exactly be comfortable with the worldview of Kanchi mutt.

    Yet, Sri Jayendra Saraswathi will always be a critically revered figure in.........

    The Jayendra Saraswathi I knew: A sage from an old order with a modern outlook, he fulfilled his quota of karma

    There were the sages of old and now there are the new age gurus with all the latest apparatus. Jayendra Saraswathi was a little different from both. He was a sage from the old order willing to push the borders of orthodoxy to be in line with demands of contemporary India. He tried to — and succeeded to a large extent — in treading this delicate and dangerous tight rope.

    He was a master of scriptures and shastras, accessible to all with his disarming smile and childish enthusiasm. He preached profound matters in simple terms. He combined piety with practical wisdom. Small wonder, he was a devotee's delight and a very popular person.
    At the same time, he understood the nuances and demands of the modern world. He believed that service to people is service to God. He felt that if Hinduism were to be relevant in the present and future it needs institutions as much as it needs temples and ashrams. For this, he hid not hesitate to bend, if not break, the Kanchi Order's convention of the incumbent seer keeping himself restricted to the physical space of the Mutt.

    Devotees across religions throng the mutt to pay respects
    Thousands including Muslims pay respects to Kanchi acharya

    He had been to Kancheepuram for his darshan but could not even get a glimpse before the seer was rushed to the hospital.






    CHENNAI:
    A never-ending stream of people thronged the Kanchi mutt near here on Wednesday following the demise of the senior pontiff Sri Jayendra Saraswati, and paid their last respects. Among the motley crowd were Muslims from the neighbourhood. To his devotees and scores of Hindus who venerated him, his name brings them victory. “Most of us believe that ‘Jayendrar vantha jayam.’ His demise was very shocking. We feel that we have lost a good spiritual guru,” says V. Subramanian, secretary, Jan Kalyan. He had been to Kancheepuram for his darshan but could not even get a glimpse before the seer was rushed to the hospital.

    Sri Jayendra Saraswati is known to be outspoken and never minced words in expressing his views nor wasted a minute to consolidate the acharyas across the country to protect the Hindu dharma.

    He is like L K Advani, very daring and outspoken; the reason probably he belonged to Ashtasahasram Sect.

    L K Advani has played a major role in the rise of BJP. Similarly, Jayendra Saraswathi was solely responsible for the rise in popularity and wealth of Kanchi Mutt.

    Both in the case of BJP and Kanchi Mutt cleverness had paid rich dividends and the beneficiaries are Vajpaie and Senior Pontiff respectively.
