Kanchi Visit 1

I was at Kanchipuram yesterday to get darshans of  Acharyas. HH Pudhu Periyava was sitting in a very low light area and didnt want to use flash on Him. Hope I will get another opportunity to get a photo. Also met Brahmasri Vedapuri mama – great soul – I am not exaggerating the following sentence – “I did not hear not one word other than Periyava from his mouth. He lives and breathes Periyava”. That is what we should learn from him.

In other photo, HH Balaperiyava was talking for a long time to three rig veda ganapadigals. He was advising them to go teach and spread the importance of veda in remote places and putting more focus away from Chennai kind of big cities….

When I was there – looking through the camera’s viewfinder, Periyava was “jollichufying”  (glitter isnt the right word here, I guess) in golden kreedam – so took more shots!

Will post more photos from today (Aradhana day) soon

  10. Thank you so much for posting the photo of Periyava on his Aradhana day. I could not make a visit to kanchipuram on this auspecious day. So this photo i got chance to view is like a prasadam for this day. Thank you once again. Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara

  11. Dear Mahesh, Thanks for the Athishtaana Photos which we are able to view on Aradhana Day.

    If you are still around the Mutt now and if you find time, please try to talk to Sri Vedapuri mama and ask him about a) what HH taught him to recite in the early morning and b) His message to Sri Vedapuri mama as to why HH preferred to remain in Kanchi at the fag end, after having toured the great length and breadth of our ancient Bharat due to the greatness of Goddess Kamakshi.
    You will be able to record it. I heard it from him twice, but sadly I could not record it. The morning Suprabhatha Sloka of HH to Sri Vedapuri is very interesting and pleasing to hear.

      • Superb quality pics. Thank you so much Sri Mahesh! Boy, you are blessed! However, I am not far behind. Today I organized VEDA PARAYANAM at my residence at Srirangam where 10 Vedic Scholars chanted Sri Rudram, Sri Chamakam, Sri Purusha Sooktam, Sri Sri Sooktam, Sri Durga Sooktam, Sri Bhagya Sooktam, Sri Meda Sooktam and a few more. It was raining Veda inside and outside it was literally raining ! I now propose to have Vedic evenings on all Anushams every month — By His Blessings.

  26. Thanks Mahesh; gld to know that you are able to be in Srimadam on 8th Jan; Periyavaa has pulled you there; engalukku kodupinai illai.
