Thy doings all, thy feastings all;
Thy Off'rings all, thy givings all
And penance all thou dost perform;
Give up to Me and then perform.

And penance all thou dost perform;
Give up to Me and then perform.

Website Of Sri
Kamakshi Dasa

Mahatma Sri Kamakshi Dasa, born Somasundaram Iyer was the third child to Sri Ramaswamy Iyer and Sri Subbhulakshmi Ammal. The divine descent of Sri Dasa took place on Purattadhi star of Margazhi 13 in the Sarvari year (27 Dec 1900) in Manamadurai town of Sivaganga district in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. 

He was very religiously inclined even at a very young age. 

He moved to Chennai in the year 1917 to pursue a BA degree in Maths from the Pachaiyappa’s College; and later to Tiruvananthapuram for studying Bachelor of Law.

Sri Dasa’s life took a sharp turn while he was in Tiruvananthapuram, where he started having a number of divine visions and experiences. 

At the age of 26, when Sri Dasa had a fabled career as a Lawyer at the Madras High court, he had the divine vision of Sri Kamakshi Devi and she then ordained him to write songs in her praise. He painted the sketch of the Goddess as seen in his vision and started worshipping her.

This painting done in mere water colour is in worship for the last 96 years and is still as fresh as ever. 

Mahatma Kamakshi Dasa has blessed us with numerous divine compositions on various deities, and other renowned philosophical works. 

We trust our readers will be inspired to take a step forward towards the Divine.

In His own words “May the All-Pervading One, the One without a second lead us on from Evil to Good, from Darkness to Light and from Death to Immortality”.
