Outstanding Photo-Diary from Sri Mahaswami Trust, Bombay

I have been getting the diaries published by the trust. This is a picture diary – large sized pictures in a very high quality paper – with lots of important dates, facts, activities about Sri Matam etc.

As the technology improves, the quality of the pictures are improving as well. Last year most of the pictures were basic B&W photos enlarged….This time, they have enhanced the old pictures, added some rare photos, very beautifully colored – absolutely gorgeous. I am simply surprised at the quality of the work- skin tone, color of rudraksha was well restored….Being a technical guy, I am still figuring out how they did this!

If you remember, the photo I posted in the post titled “vaanam paarthan sivalingam” with a picture that was digitally touched, colored – looks just awesome….

Out of temptation, I am posting just a couple of photos….If you need this diary, here is the information about the publishers

  2. Thanks for letting us know Mahesh.

  3. For those in USA, the above diary can be had from the KKSF. Last week they brought 2 dozens to NC and were sold out!

  4. Sri Mahesh, am nothing before devotees like you and many more.

    This pictures were released by Sri G Vaidyanathan, ardent devotee of Periayva, fondly called “Vaitha” and given with description when i saw your posting, those pictures was just next to me, immediately i took it and written the description.

    Myself seen Periyava only twice, one in early chilldhood below 5 years, in Ayodhya Mandapam, West Mambalam, Chennai, giving Theertha Prasadham, i also got it, nothing i know about Periyava and little later in Kancheepuram when my parents took me, Periyavaa is in a hut, i saw Periyava from distance, and we have been introduced as Grand Daughter (my mother) of MahaMahoPathyaya Brimhasri Yagyaswami Sastrigal of Kumbakonam (1876 -1940), who is the grandson of Mannarkudi MahaMahoPathyaya Raju Sastrigal (1815-1903) (a.k.a. Mannarkudi Periyava). Those moments are still in my memory.

    There after i never had darshan of Periyava. Am still crying how i have wasted my life so long. My longing for periayava darshan growing day by day and periayava was so Karunyamurthy gave me darshan in my dreams in last few years..

    Periayava “Cycle Pedal” theory all know. Because of our forefathers punya karma, we all still better in life.

    I humbly accept your project. I don’t know how am going to fare on that? if Periyava allows things will falls in place.
