Mahaperiyava & Sri Appaya Dikshitar Charithram Part II

Mama is 92 and his ability to reproduce the slokas, incidents from Mahaperiyava is just amazing. His speech reminds me of my school days where my Tamil teacher used to beautifully gives meaning for Kamba ramayanam etc. Mama gives a beautiful/simple vyagyanams on very high vedantic topics to laymen like us.
  • Mama doing a mimi-cry about Mahaperiyava!!! – must-listen
  • How Sri Neelakanda dikshitar calls Ambal as “asadu”!
  • Three simple examples for “Athma balam” by Periyava
  • Mantra to chant when applying viboothi
  • Periyava explains the power of “satsangam”
Mama gets very emotional when repeating Periyava’s maha-vaakyams…How beautifully mama explains our blessings of living in the same period of Mahaperiyava! It is very funny that mama calls himself as layman. What should we call ourselves as?!!

Sincere thanks to Shivaraman for capturing this wonderful video.

Let us pray Mahaperiyava to give all the health and long life for dikshitar mama.

I just called Shivaraman to thank him for this wonderful interview. He mentioned that mama, at this age, recently went to sri matam to do namaskarams to both the periyavas as they are getting ready for a yathra. This is what is called viswasam to kanchi matam and to respect to Kanchi Acharya lineage!!

    Mama uses the word “bhavatu” whereas here its “bhajatu”. Which one is correct?

    PeriyavA’s vedanta talk.
