Our next stop is at Pzhur – in the banks of Cauvery towards Musiri, where HH Anagarai Periyava’s adishtanam is located…We had a blessing of having a aganda Cauvery snanam.
I have to mention my typical silly question from me “Can I use soap?”. shivaraman gave me a virtual kuttu on my head saying, “soap is for those who take bath in Cauvery and not for those who snanams”. He still has patience to travel with me and bear with all these things 🙂
Railway gate was closed due to repair that made us walk about 0.5 kms to the agraharam – beautiful morning walk in the lush green fields with no air pollution whatsoever….I really missed my Canon 6D. My iPhone did a great job for most part…..
A beautiful agraharam – reminded me of Sirugumani…mostly brahmins are still living there…
Mahaperiyava had mentioned four people as Mahans – Sri Sivan Sir (by birth), Sri Pradosham mama (by bakthi), Sri Musiri dikshitar (by karma), HH Anagarai Periyava (by pravachanam). He had also mentioned Angarai Periyava as as an avatar of Adi Seshan.
One interesting thing – Angarai Periyava had never lived in this place etc. Even before attaining siddhi, some volunteers asked Him about this location for adishtanam etc and He approved this place…Adishtanam has the photo of Lord Guruvayurappan that Periyava prayed all His life. On its left hand side is Mahaperiyava padhuka and a rare painting and on the right is Sri Sivan Sir’s photo!
To know more about Him, please read the article here
Here are some adishtanam photos!! Those two kids wanted a picture – also there was a little girl who was too shy to come in front of the camera and hiding behind a pillar!!
Next time, when you all go to Trichy, please visit this great place!!
(Next stop is Nerur)
