Thank you and Happy New Year


Dear readers,


It just seems like yesterday that I wrote end of year note to all of you and now one full year is gone by. It is the end of another great year with you all. With Periyava’s grace, lots of things happened ::


  • Veda Rakshana Drive
  • lots and lots of video interviews
  • completion of reviving Periyava’s upanyasams from old tapes
  • this blog surpassed half million visits – in few months it will touch a million hits mark!
  • reader base of over 1000
  • Total posts over 750 so far
  • I continue to be the #1 in posting – no competition – LOL!!!!!
  • Suresh being the #1 in commenting

This blog has reached so many people with Periyava’s grace. He is the one who decides how to do it and it is happening….All upadesams, devotees experience you watch/read are decided by Him and we simply execute….

Thanks to each one of you for supporting and encouraging me throughout this journey. If you have experienced any inconveniences, pleaseaccept my apologies. Also, if I haven’t answered your question or taken care of requests, it is simply due to my work schedule etc….I will try to respond more in the coming year…

I also want to do special thanks to Shri Shivaraman, Karthikeyan and Shri Ganesha Sharma on the video interviews in India – simply outstanding…..

As our blog grows rapidly, I am finding the need to move to a self-hosted website that would give us more flexibility. Currently I am technically too constrained due to the fact that is free hosting. For instance, I can’t upload audio files, I can’t use flash, custom themes etc. Very likely I will be moving to a new site (very soon) to provide better reading experience to you all. I sincerely request you to follow me to the new home and continue your support, if I choose to move.

Finally, let me wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year and join with you in praying Karunamurthi Mahaperiyava to continue guiding us. I am sending this note a day earlier as I will be on the plane to India on the New Year’s Eve.

Pl expect phone calls from me in Chennai and posts from Chennai.

Take care,

  1. Mr. Mahesh
    Wherever you go , we will come, rather we will be made to come. The efforts people have put to present all these files, audio or video or even the articles…..hats off to all of them. It is a blessing that we are able to read and listen to all this and it is because of you people and the bigger cause is HH. Apart from the Veda rakshana work, there are so many temples and the gurukals who are not able to have a decent living. Is there something that we can organise. Currently am part of the group which is doing something for temples in and around the village of Thethiyur. I am jjust contributing and have not done anything big, but may be we can think on these lines too.
    A peaceful year ahead for you and family

He has just completed his next writing on Maha Periyavaal which will shortly come out in a book form.

  13. Dear Mahesh, we all, Mahaperiyavaa bhakthas specially pray for you to His Holiness for giving you more and more enthusiasm in posting lots and lots of such fantastic posts on Mahaperiyavaa in the coming year. I wonder working abroad, how you manage your time for all these. (Mahaperiyavaa’s villayaadal?) hearty congrats.

  14. Dear Sri Mahesh

    Thank you for all your sincere efforts in sharing the real greatness of HH Maha Periyavaa among the ardent devotees and all other sincere persons who read the contents in amazement, some with half belief. At least in 2013, I wish and pray that these persons, who are in minority would be adequately blessed by Him in their personal lives (like a gentle constant breeze on power cut time!) so that their half belief turns out to be total belief and surrender. Mind you, He never insists that. “Avar arulaal Avar thaal panindhu.”
    The present Acharyas of the Kanchi Mutt, having inherited the legacy of HH Maha Periyavaa, continue to contribute a lot to the needy without much ado. Pranaams to them. Some one needs to chronicle these for next generation. The request is only to preserve for posterity. As we know, today’s sufferings and mundane events are tomorrow’s good old nostalgic days. It is human nature.
    On the eve of 2013 New Year we sincerely appreciate your attempts, Mahesh. These are yielding great vibration among the devotees across the countries.
    We wish you a great health, spiritual experience, and your honest pursuit would take this blog to thousands of devotees by the end of 2013. Our prayers to Him would meet that.


  15. Dear Mahesh, wishing you and your family a very happy new year 2013. Keep up the awesome work you do. Look forward to your posts from India. Periyava thiruvadigal charanam. Best regards, Radha R

  18. Dear Sir, Thanks for your new year wishes; which i take it as it is from Maha Periyavaa, since everything is His “leela vinodham” . Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara. Maha Periyava Thiruvadigale Charanam.

  30. Dear Mr.Mahesh,
    At the outset I wish to thank you sincerely for the wonderful mails sent by you from time to time on our Mahaperiyava and His greatness.
    I am very fortunate in serving a service Centre started by our revered Mahaperiyava and your mails makes me realise how I need to go
    very very far to make a very small contribution to our Mahaperiyava’s foresight. I shall be happy to get in touch with you and discuss on
    how all of us could initiate some meaningful service from the coming year onwards. I am located in Chennai and I shall be glad to get
    a reply from you.
    Wishing you a very happy and prosperous New Year and expecting many more wonderful mails from you.
    Ever at the service of Mahaperiva.

      Mathchithaah Mahtgathapraanaah Bodhayanthah parasparam

      fits you exactly.

Thans and Regards S.VENKATARAMANI


  40. Dear Sir,

    With regard to Veda Rakshana, I have a humble suggestion to make. It could be explored whether a trust can be formed to contribute to various Veda Patasalas which require funds. Of course it shall not overlap with Veda Rakshana Turst which was instituted under the guidance of our Mahaperiyaval himself and being run by our Shri Matam. My opinion is if all the interested persons can contribute on a monthly basis to this Trust, the same can be distributed to the Patasalas. A committee could be formed for identifying the Patasalas and to do all other deeds in this regard. This is my humble suggestion. If it is worthwhile or feasible, it could be considered.

    • Dear Shri Mahesh,

      I take this opportunity of Wishing You & Your family a very Happy, Prosperous, healthy & Peaceful New Year ahead. Am one of the new entrants to this blog for about 5 to 6 months may be and thoroughly enjoying the contents. I wish to extend my sincere thanks and best wishes to your team at Chennai who are just doing a fabulous job. Able to understand their painstaking efforts in identifying Maha Periyavaa’s ardent devotees, approaching them for video interviews, editing, uploading besides their official work cannot be just explained in mere words. Anything to start off is easy but to sustain it without losing the tempo and enthusiasm is not that easy. All these you and your team are able to carry on just because of Maha Periyavaa’s absolute anugraham and as you rightly said he is the guiding factor and the binding force. Let this sathsangam grow bigger and bigger in the days to come.

      Maha Periyavaa Thiruvadi Saranam,

      Hara Hara Sankara, Jaya Jaya Sankara
      Hara Hara Sankara, Jaya Jaya Sankara
      Hara Hara Sankara, Jaya Jaya Sankara
      Hara Hara Sankara, Jaya Jaya Sankara
      Hara Hara Sankara, Jaya Jaya Sankara

  41. Dear Sir,

    Wishing you and your family a very great new year. You are blessed with Mahaperiyaval’s paripoorana Anugrahams also. Nice to hear that soon you will be hosting a new site. If financial support is required for the same, please inform in the blog so that we can also contribute our mite to this Noble cause.I am really amazed at the information about our Mahaperiyaval that is being shared here. I pray for MAHAPERIYAVAL’S POORNA ANUGRAHAM TO BLESS THIS CAUSE TO GO ON UNHINDERED.

    J. Subramanian

  42. While wishing you&family a great 2013,you have fulfilled the longfelt dreams of ardent devotees like me..
    1.By bringing all imp videos/write ups on Maha Periyavaa under one head
    2.meeting people like Ilayaraja and getting their experience which cannot be measured in terms of any money value over a period of time.
    3.establishing beyond reasonable doubts that Miracles of Maha Periyavaa is indeed because He is Avatar of Adi Sankara HImself as Sankara Himself is none other than Shiva roopam..
    Let there be a seperate website with all facility so that even after 100s of yrs people wd do research on Him.I am willing to contribute for this worthy cause whatever needed.
    He will bless you!
    Thanks for the efforts.
