  • When are you going to learn Sanskrit – I found this real funny!
  • Two important things for a brahmana – as explained by Mahaperiyava
  • “Advaitam : sarvam ekam yeva!” – simple explanation by Mahaperiyava

  1. What a great soul Sri. N.V. Maama is! Totally blessed person. We were elevated to great heights when we heard his experiences with Maha PeriyavaL.

  2. One of the best interview ever. Funny, joy, sorrow, music, devotional, advaitha, dvaitha. It was like a full movie. NV mama is one of the lucky ones. Amazing ending to this narration. Totally worth 47.07 minutes.

    My humble thanks to interviewer Sri Sivaraman and you Mahesh for being an enablers to this.

  3. Dear Mahesh,

    It is PURE joy and astonishment to hear the explanations and reasoning of Paramacharya – Maha Periyava. By the way Shri N Venkataraman was my science teacher(and also Team Manager for our Cricket Team) in the 1960s when i studied in National High School. A very nice, caring and enterprising gentleman ! I felt more joy when Shri NV narrated his expeiences with Maha Periyava.
    Thanks to you and Shri NV.
