(the above picture is a high-resolution photo – would take some time to load…this can be printed and can be made as a large size poster)
I was at another devotee’s (Sankar) place over the weekend for lunch…He has a large photo on the wall where Periyava is sitting on a big decorated pallakku. He told me a reason why he has that photo at home. It seems he remembers seeing Periyava in a similar situation when he was very small, when his father lifted him up on his birthday so that the kid can see Him in the pallakku clearly. While he was brought him down, they found a thulasi mala on his neck – worn by Periyava Himself! Sankar – poramaya irukku sir!
So the question to all of you – When you think of Periyava, which face comes to your mind? Was He younger, older, with beard, without beard, with or without glasses, in Kanchipuram/thenambakkam, sitara etc ????.
