Periyava week with Sri Subhash mama & family


Ghatam Shri Subhash Chandran mama, Kanjira Shri Ganesh & others are here touring in U.S for performances in various places. One day I suddenly got a message in Facebook from Ganesh, whom I’ve met few times in W.Mambalam. He was the one who distributed 100+ books of “Thanthathu un thannai kondathu en thannai”. From the message I sensed that he needed some help. I called him and it turned out that due to some planning issue, they needed help in accommodation in Chicago as they’re on their way to Madison, WI for next program. I invited them all to my place to stay with us. They kindly agreed and they are with us now. They have two more programs left – one in Gainesville, FL & last program in NY. Please check their site for details:: (

Shri Subash Mama and Ganesh have spent nearly the last 10 years very very closely with Periyava. All thanks to Sri Pradosham mama. Their experiences are not necessarily miraculous always but enough to get necessary anugrahams from the Lord. I requested them to share these experiences with me. All of them are very kind in sparing time for me to talk about all these….Krishna at his young age is chanting thevaram, thiruvasagam and all three do nithya puja to Periyava. He has been blessed by Periyava since Krishna was a child. Now he is a leading music composer in Vijay TV. The sitar player Hindol is an outstanding Shiva devotee from Calcutta. This is the first time he is playing with mama’s troupe. During our conversation with him yesterday, he mentioned that he got a new raga “Peethambara” directly from Lord Shiva. Periyava has His own ways of uniting like minded people.

More than any miraculous experiences, we always are keen to listen, I am awestruck to hear how Pradosham mama taught them all to do bakthi to Periyava. That is they key to success – some people get it due to Periyava anugraham – some don’t. This is one such blessed family….

One common trait you would see from those who  come from the school of Sri Pradosham mama is their unshaken bakthi towards Mahaperiyava. That is what I am learning from them.

I will try to share if I am able to get some videos during my conversation with them….

  2. Great message, indeed. My wife who is a great devotee of Maha Periya recalls that when Periyava camped in T Nagar, Chennai in the year 1959, He blessed her with a picture of Bhavani Amman and within a few months her marriage (with me) was finalised. So powerful is His Khadaksham. She is busy these days in extracting articles from religious magazines and getting them bound into volumes. She solicits Maha Periyava’s blessings in her efforts……K Viswanathan

  3. Mr. Mahesh
    Shortly I will forward an invite for the 120 Jayanthi Mahotsavam of Sri Sri Sri Mahaperiyava being organised by the disciples of Sri Pradosham Mama at Bangaaru Amman Thottam & OR-IRUKAI village, to your gmail id. It is organised by BYMM Trust [Bhagawan Yogamoorthy Mahaperiyava Meelaadimai Trust]. Now Sri Pradosham Mama’s grandson is taking care of the trust. Request you to publish the invite even though the size is huge [8mb].

    In the last page of that invite Sri Pradosham Mama & one of his son’s foto are published.

  4. I want to know the script of the song “Paarththukkiddee irukkath thooNuthu” on Maha Periyava. The You Tube version has come in two parts, but the audio is not fully understandeable. Can somebody give the script of this very emotional and devine song on Maha Periyava? Perhaps Sri. Subhash Chandran and Sri. Ganesh Kumar can help. Jaya Jaya Shankara, Hara Hara Shankara!

  5. Very nice to hear about the group’s performance in the US. Hope to hear more from you about their experiences with Sri Maha Periyaval. Tks for sharing.

  6. Pradosham Mama’s photo please….

  7. anda asaikka mudiyaada bhakthi periva mela irukkanum nu avarayee prarthanai pannippom. avan arulaale avan thaal vanangi

  8. Sri Subash Chandra Mama (Brother of Sri Thetakudi Harihara Vinayakram a.k.a Vikku Vinayakram) & team has rendered “Periyavalai Patthukitte Irruka Thonuthu”. Excellant song. All periyava devotees must listen to this song.

  9. Very nice to hear this. Ghatam Vidwans Sri. Vinayakram and Sri Subhash Chandran gave their heartfelt interviews to Sri.Sivaraman about the KaruNai of Maha Periyava and the staunch Bhakthi of Pradosham Maama to Him which appeared in this blog. I am glad that they are in the U.S. at the time of Sri Sankara Jayanthi and Maha Periyava Jayanthi. Hope you all have a lot of interactions and may be able to share them with us. Jaya Jaya Shankara, Hara Hara Shankara!
