KALADI - THE BIRTH PLACE OF ADI SANKARA

Introduction

This writer had the unique opportunity of visiting Kaladi in May 1965 when the Sankaracharyas of three maths-Sringeri, Dwaraka and, Puri met here to participate in the Sankara Jayanti celebrations. It was unique because rarely do Sankaracharyas of different maths meet together. Such a meeting in which all the four Sankaracharyas. Including that of Badrinath came together on a common platform took place 15 years later-May 1979-at Sringeri which, it was said, was the first meeting in 125 years. The Kaladi meeting was therefore an event of importance 'and all Kerala and the neighboring States enthusiastically welcomed the holy men.
