BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, February 8, 2019 (Lokvani): In the heart of Chennai is located a popular centuries old temple known as Sri Kalikambal, where Goddess Mother Kali in her benevolent form of Kalikambal showers divine grace on Her devotees. The temple was visited by the great Maratha Emperor Chhatrapati Shivaji in 1677, and was frequented by the great Tamil poet Subramania Bharati who composed many well-known songs in praise of the Goddess of this temple. Two centuries later, thanks to the untiring efforts of Shivacharya Bhairavasundaram, the presence and blessings of Mother Kalikambal in our midst.
Shri Bhairav has established a beautiful temple for Mother Kalikambal in Bellingham, MA. The people of Greater Boston are very fortunate to have among them Shivacharya Bhairav, an alumnus of the Madras Sanskrit College, and an experienced and highly respected priest well-versed in the spiritual traditions of Hinduism, who is well-known in the area, and who is also closely related to the spiritual custodians of the Chennai Kalikambal Temple. In fact, the late Guru Deiva Shri Dr. Sivasri Sambamurthy Sivachariar of the Chennai Kalikambal Temple was Bhairav's primary mentor and guide. His son and disciple Guru Swami Sathasivom Sivacharyar of the Chennai Kalikambal Temple continues to mentor and guide Bhairav in his mission, and sets aside time to visit the Boston Kalikambal Temple to participate in important events. The Boston Kalikambal Temple is currently housed in temporary premises that is part of a shopping plaza on North Main Street in Bellingham. Bhairav recently announced that the acquisition of land on which a new temple will be constructed has been successfully completed.
