We all know the story of Pusalar Nayanar. We also know the story of Sri Pradosham mama, who is the 64th nayanmar who built the largest temple for Periyava. We also are hearing about other Periyava temples that are being built/going to be built (Nochiyam mami, W.Mambalam etc). Even ordinary mortals like us have those dreams as well….While I was in Chennai Shivaraman & I drove by this place; stopped and took few photos…Right when I was ready to leave mama came out from the house and enquired about us etc. He was so nice to talk to us and told us a little about this place, handed me two beautiful photos/posters of Periyava…I understand that this is the first ever padhuka mandapam to be built for Periyava! It seems that they originally planned to build a temple but it turned out to be this (His) way!
Unfortunately, it was around 2PM when we went there and the place was closed. Still mama showed this place through the grill doors from the side – I was able to see the main sannidhi where His padhukas are kept…Although I planned to revisit, couldn’t do it before I took off – not blessed, I guess. They are also completing a mini–hall for small events etc. As we could see from the photo, HH Pudhu Periyava had blessed this new hall and opened on Apr 18th….

This is exactly what I along with several devotees have been dreaming to do here in US for a long time – a padhuka mandapam for our Periyava where we can do all anusham pujas, jayanthi, aradhana, vedic events, satsangs etc – an identity for Kanchi devotees. In fact we want this all major cities in US. If He wishes, my dream will come true!
