    I faintly remember the place where the picture was taken as Satara where Mahaperiyava had camped.Pl correct me if I am wrong.You are really making us feel that He is still with us with each article/photo of Periyava.

  7. During these days, many so called ‘Sanyasins’ watch cricket match in TV like kids – Mahaswami, used his time in anushtanams like Sandhyavandhanam, Devatha Aradhanam, Guru Pujas, Counseling the devotees for their problems, bringing faith to the poor and unfortunate, helping widows, children & physically handicapped, touring the length and breadth of the Nation to preserve the Sanathana Dharma against the conversion mafias. Protecting old art & architecture by holding various vidwat sadas and ‘Rama Naama Japa’ yagyas. Empowering women by banishing the ‘Vara Dhakshina’, so many so many great deeds. The epitome of a guru, the charm in his face, the Tejaswi Bhooyasam of his appearance, his devote & chaste life of an austere ‘sanyasin’, an able administrator and a good Acharya. No wonder, Mahaswami or Paramacharya befits only him. One can ‘feel’ the aura around him even from his photos, what to say of the countless devotee’s personal faith & experience. The world will have to do great ‘TAPAS’ to again have any visit by such great stalwarts. Hari OM.

  10. சாக்ஷாத் மஹேஸ்வர ஸ்வரூபமாகிய நமது பூஜ்ய ஸ்ரீ ம்ஹா பெரியவாளுடைய திவ்ய தரிசனத்தை வெவ்வேறு வடிவங்களில் மகிழ்ந்து காணக் காண ஓராயிரம் கண்கள் வேண்டும். கண்கள் பனிக்கின்றன். எல்லாப் பெருமையும் அந்த மஹாப் பெரியவாளுக்கே, எல்லா நன்றியும் இந்த மஹேஷுக்கே. நன்றி மஹெஷ்.
