With a great sadness, I regret to share the news that Sri Ponds Narayanan Mama passed away this morning. I talked to both Shri Shivaraman & Shri Ganesha Sharma to get more details. He was not suffering or hospitalized. He was as active as always – talked to so many of his friends until last night including both of them. He was planning to go to Sri Vivekananda Kendra in Kanyakumari and spend 15 days of solitude in reading/listening to deivathin kural, thinking one and only about Mahaperiyava etc. He was planning to turn his phone off during those days to avoid distraction! He booked his train tickets and awaiting for EQ release for confirmation. However Periyava decided to confirm his reservation at His lotus feet on a Guru Poornima day!! What a great soul! Great devotees like him get such a peaceful and blessed departure.
I would like to re-post his video interview as a mark of respect for him and his unshaken bakthi towards Periyava
