It is not difficult at all to learn
It is not waste of time to acquire any knowledge. For your kind information, grantham still dynamically being employ by all the 1000s of saiva & vaishnava aacahryars throughout tamilnadu (which has 1000s of lofty puranic temple where strict aagama systems being exercised) ans also Sri Lanka, Malaysia & Singapore. I feel sorry for your ignorance. Vast number of my relatives has attained the aacharya abishekam and contractual obligations in temples: Malaysia; Kuala Lumpur Sri Maha Mariaaman Devastanam, Puduraya Ganapathi Temple, Batucaves Subramania Temple, Ampang Raja rajeswary....100s are there just in the peninsula malaysia, Singapore: Veeramakaliamman tpl, Subramaniar Tpl, Danyuthapaani , Varataraja. Sri Lanka; all the temples in yarlpaanam, from nallur kandaswamy to
Keerimalai naguleswara, in the east from Mullaithivu Raja Rajeswari to Mattakalappu Thaanthondrieeswar, in the west from mannar Kehtheeswar to colombo Ponambaleeswar.
If u doubt on my credibility I can post to u some of the print outs of grantha books, such as Kaamika, suprabehtha, vaathula, vaikhanasa, paanjarathra aagamas..., Sri Cakra pooja vythy, Kumaara Taanthra, Sthothra mala's, lessa pooja vythies...sahasranaamas and many other related articles from Sri Lanka & Malaysia.
If you never been to any of this countries which comprised of approximately 3.0M Tamil hindus in Sri Lanka, 2-2.5M Tamil Hindus Malaysia, Singapore, Sabah, Sarawak, Bali, Sumatra. AND GRANTHAM STILL BEING UTILISE AS A MEDIUM ; RECITATION TO SCORE THE YANTHRA AND CAKRA'S
I were born n bred in an orthodox typical aacharya family. It is mandatory for us to learn the rite and rituals. A brahmin should be atleast would be able to perform a Punyaavachanam, I am very sure you wouldn't know how to perform it, and not even know how to wind the KUURCHAM. (SO DON'T DUPE AROUND, IF U R NOT INTERESTED BOGOFF)
I am not here to argue with koundinya's ignorative child, I am here to share my knowledge to anyone who is keen to learn. Yaam petra inbam pehruguga e waiyam muluthum regardless to caste, custome & trade.
My friend who is a Kannada madhwa Brahmana still has the family ties with Uddupi aacharyaars, and he told me that they learn sanskrit via kannada Lippi, and my cousin's brother in law who is a telugu has completed his vaishnava studies purely in telugu lippi in Simchalam Wedha Paadasaala in Vaishakpatnam.
Therefore why not we tamilians utilise our own grantham, there is no such thing as devanaagari is great then any other lippi nor absolutely perfect. Grantha is neither crude nor artificial. Devanaagari itself not belongs to sanskrutham or prakrutham it has been borrowed to write sanskrit (citation needed;I will explain in other thread)
Well there is no harm to learn other language, Since we have our own resources, why don't we utilise it. This is one of the precious gift that has been pass thru generation by our ancestors, unfortunately it has been kept hidden & isolated by some of our fanatic shallow minded orthodox members.
When Telugu's are reciting sanskrit sacred texts in telugu, kannadigas in kannada, Malayaalis in manipravalam, why not we tamilians recite in our own grantha tamil.
And it is not difficult at all, I am sure if u can do the simple arithmetics then it is not difficult to comprehend grantham.
It is my long day dream, I want to see the Tamilians able to recite the mantras & slokas without mistake instead of using Tamil libbi which is not compatible to sanskrit.
I just need a help from some IT genius to create the complete audio-visual grantha tamil font and tables. I can fund if anyone keen to do it.
I have the complete grantha/sanskrit bala paadam published by the Venkadesha Iyer of Kokuvil Sri Lanka & Kumbakonam Ramaswamy Iyer's. If u r interested do not hesitate to obtain one (absolutely free).
