(Sri Pradosham mama is known to 100s/1000s of anga pradakshanams to Periyava wherever he sees Him and pradakshinam to Periyava with his knees – I have heard that blood used to pour from the knees – he still wouldn’t mind! Devotees have seen him doing 1000s of pradakshinams to Periyava photo in the middle of night – say 2 AM etc!! – He who reached the peak of bakthi with the help of Periyava.)
Hope you all remember my earlier posting on monthly newsletter and prasadam that are sent from Mahaperiyava’s pradhaana sishya’s place (Sri Pradosham mama). Anusham Jayanthi celebrated with Ayushya Homam and Avahanthi Homam and Swami Purappadu every month at the Periyava Temple in Pradosham Mama house in Kanchipuram.The Rakshai Prasadam will be sent to all the bhakthas all over the world regularly every month along with some very rare incidents of devotees printed along with the prasadam..
I talked to Shri Sriram, grandson of mama to check on the logistics of having more people signed up for this. I also asked him about accepting money at least to cover the postal expenses. Sriram strictly said no to that as it would not be in line with Sri Pradosham mama’s desire – it would be more like doing business with prasadam! Only true and great devotees can think like that.
Sriram said that he and his team are more than happy to send newsletters & prasadam to more devotees across the globe. In order to make it happen, please contact “Kanjira” Ganesh Kumar in his email at firstname.lastname@example.org and send your address detail to enable him to send the prasadam regularly every month and you can also contact him at his home address if you are in Chennai:

Most of you might know Ganesh Kumar already as a well-renowned Kanjira artist and close relative to Sri Pradosham Mama. He is one of the devotees who goes to Pradosham Mama house for all for monthly Jayanthi functions for several decades now.
Anyone who wants to contribute to this effort can do so when you visit Kanchipuram and/or mama’s place and during yearly jayanthi / aradhana event that has been celebrated in a very grand manner for the past several decades at their place.
I request all devotees to go to mama’s place when you visit Kanchipuram – a must-see place. Periyava is prathyaksham and doing namaskarams to mami is one blessed moment for all of us.
Our namaskarams to Periyava and Sri mama to bless us with at least a fraction of mama’s bakthi.
Jaya Jaya Shankara Hara Hara Shankara!
