hiKanchi Mahaperiyavaa, our beloved Paramacharya, has told that drinking coffee is tamasic and it should be avoided at all costs. His Holiness strictly prohibited coffee with a sternness equal to his tone while banning silk clothes (ahmisa). In fact, His Holiness clearly told many times that brahmins should never consume tamasic drinks such as coffee and tea. Hope we all try and live by His teachings, starting with a simple sadana such as avoiding coffee. Sad that so many of us brahmins here extol a beverage banned by our Paramacharya.
acharya said many times about simple marriage without dowry and big weddings....how many of us ready to
follow?....we are in the era CONVENIENCE......if anything convenient ppl follow and preach...especialy
many close devotees are using ACHARYA's photos in famous brahmin hotels/coffeee stores..
