Here is the actual email I received from Shri Prabhu Mahalingam. The email says it all. Without Periyava’s and Lord Neelakandan’s blessings, such noble thoughts won’t come into our minds. Prabhu seems to be one such chosen soul…
Please read on..Encourage him, participate in this noble cause and get the blessings of Lord Parameswaran. If anyone wants to contribute, please reach out to him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
We wish Prabhu all the success in completing this great renovation project.

I am a member in the Mahapariyava word press and greatly admire your web page and a regular reader.
I have posted few posts regarding Mattur Swamigal after his siddi. It was a great blessing to be in his guidance for the past 6 years.
I am a resident of Kanchipuram for the past 7 years by Ambal’s grace.
Through mahapariyava’s grace I have been doing some charity work ( On my own) for old temple renovation in and around kanchipuram.
One such temple is Yoga ligaswarar and Hanumanteeswarar temples in Sarva teertha karai in Kanchi which is having the Kumbabishekam from 9th to 12 Feb 2014.
These two temples have been renovated by Kanthamalai saba at a cost of approx 12 Lakhs. Towards which I had contributed a small amount.
Now I would like to make a bigger contribution towards renovation of a Old Shiva temple.
One such temple in mind is the Agateeswarar temple near Mahapariyava Manimandapam in Oorikai, Kanchipuram. This temple is almost 2000 years old and mahapariyava has done pooja to this lingam.
The temple and swamy are in very bad shape.
One of the manimandapam’s present trustees (Mani Iyer) has also accepted to help us in the form of material (like stone sand etc)requirement for this temple renovation.
The village head’s and prominent people have given there nod for construction.
I would like to know if it would be appropriate to post a photo of this temple and the idea to build. This would give us some more funds to do a good job.
I don’t know the intricacies of doing this. I am just a humble beginner to this social cause.
With Mahapariyava’s grace I would like to do as much as possible in this short life given.
It is our duty to do some thing to the God who is protecting us every second.
To have an idea of the long list of temples in Kanchi which doesn’t even have a roof please visit this web site given below. Some LINGA Arudai are even broken.
