It brings me a great pleasure in announcing that today, on an auspicious anusham day that Kanchi Guruparampara Foundation is going to launch Periyava Radio – a 24×7 online radio station. HH Balaperiyava sent His blessings for this on the most auspicious day of Vijayadasami.
Yes, the concept of running a 24×7 Periyava radio has been brewing on my head for quite some time and it took some time to identify and test multiple different service providers to meet our needs. Finally I found a place, did some basic testing and it is getting ready to be launched. Thanks to our asthana iOS developer, Vinoth, who suggested this idea and also gave some pointers related to that.
So, what is this radio and how does it work?
This is an internet-based radio. If you have internet, you can listen to this station 24×7.
How can one listen to this radio?
This radio can be accessed via any browser, mobile phones, tablets etc. A mobile app will be launched for this very soon.
Is it really 24×7?
Yes, unless, I stop it, it will broadcast audios in a non-stop mode.
Can we do live streaming too?
Sure. I intend to do this on certain occasions. For instance, if any of our Periyavas are giving anugraha bashanam or someone is giving a speech on Periyava, we can do a live-streaming (provided there is an internet connection and a computer available at that location).
What is the schedule?
(All timings are based off IST)
This is a tentative schedule…
|6 – 7 AM||Suprabatham, Swasti Vachanam, karavalmbam, guru stuthis|
|7 – 8 AM||Aditya Hrudhayam & Surya Namaskaram|
|8 – 9 AM||Dheivathin Kural – Voice of Mahaperiyava (loop)|
|9 – 10 AM||Periyavas Anugrahabashanams/speeches/discourses (loop)|
|10 – noon||Interviews of devotees (depends on content-owner’s approval)|
|noon – 4.30||Guru bhajans/Krithis/Stuthis (loop)|
|4.30 – 6 PM-||Time for Lord Shiva – Rudram, Chamakam, Shiva Stuthi|
|6 – 7 PM||Dheivathin Kural – Voice of Mahaperiyava (loop)|
|7 – 8 PM||Sahasranamams / Laharis / Thiruppavai / Thiruvempavai /Sivapuranams (loop)|
|8 – 9 PM||Periyavas Anugrahabashanams/speeches/discourses (loop)|
|9 – 10 PM||Interviews of devotees (depends on content-owner’s approval)|
|10 – 6 AM||Guru bhajans/Krithis/Stuthis (loop)|
I am considering upanyasams by authorities like Dr Radhakrishna sastrigal, Brahmasri Mullaivasal ganapadigal, HH Variyar Swamigal etc (as long as there are no copyright issues).
When will this station go live?
Soon…Very soon….. I have to fix few things before it goes live – hopefully will finish this soon….I need more content to fill 24 hours!! Sooner you send me the contents, quicker we can launch and continuously enhance.
Here are the few big help I need from you
- In order to make this radio successful, I would like you to send me whatever links you have on Periyava related audio files – kirthis, bhajans, others who talk about Periyava etc. We can include them in our schedule. If you have any recordings of HH Pudhu Periyava and HH Balaperiyava, please send them to me. If you have a good song in a video (youtube etc), it is still fine, please send the link. If you have an audio file, please mail it to me email@example.com.
- I also need volunteers who are interested in managing this station along with me…You do not need any great technical expertise to do this…All you need is some creativity of how to keep this station interesting and useful to listeners.
This is our radio – dedicated exclusively for our Periyavas. Feel free to suggest on contents, schedules – what to have etc – I will surely consider/implement them. At the end of the day, this radio should be useful and informative enough for all of us.
Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara!
Is there any whatsapp group on Maha Periyava. If yes can i have the number to join.
Dear Mahesh sir,
This is a wonderful initiative. I am happy to help. I have dropped you an email.
Dear Sri Mahesh
You have PERIVAA blessing to have started this. Every morning and night this radio has been my companion to keep rest of my day healthy and peaceful. I have one request for example today morning Jan 4 2016 at around 6 am i heard of some veda competition which before i could note down and understand the programme was cut and the new event which is recitation of the SHIVA started. I would appreciate for future if there is a way of archiving such important programmes for later listening or downloading for devotees like me, it will be very helpful. I am still curious about what the programme this morning about the competition and who was the person narrating the rules etc. It was something very interesting that i have not heard before. Any info will allow me to GOOGLE and find more. PERIVAA CHARANAM

Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!! Thank you so much Maheshji for coming up with such a wonderful idea. Looking forward. Mahaperiyava thunai.
You take very highly involved and difficult work. You have successfully demonstrated that you can deliver such difficult work. This website is the living example.

at last cant wait for you to get it going mahesh sir
Dear Mahesh : Excellent. Something unique for all Mahaperiyava devotees. I have heard and read about Mahaperiyavaa camping in Nagapattinam some decades ago when it was time for Adi Puram festival which used to be celebrated in a grand manner in Nagapattinam Ambal Neelayadakshi Temple. But, at the time when Periyavaa was camping, that town was experiencing severe drought condition and the holy tank attached to the temple called “Pundarika Kulam’ went dry and the temple authorities could not launch the usual Theppam. They all prayed Parameshwara Swaroopa Mahaperiyavaa who immediately went to the dried temple tank, prayed and sprinkled water from His Holy Kamandalam and there it was, it rained and rained cooling the entire town, filling all tanks including Pundarika Kulam and the Adi Puram festival was celebrated nicely in the presence of our Mahaan.
In this context, if it is OK for you, your slot of 7 to 8 pm may be fixed for all devotional songs for which as my contribution, I can send you devotional songs on Ambal Neelayadakshi (lyrics composed by me) and set to music and sung in carnatic ragas by violinist Mullaivasal Sri Chandramouli and his team. These songs are available for listeners in these sites :
On hearing from you, I shall forward to you the songs in MP3 format as well as lyrics.
Praying for Maha Periyavaa’s Blessings in this Maha Periyavaa Radio Project.
Eagerly awaiting for the Periyava Radio launch.
Is there any Whatsapp group active to receive Periyava’s message?
Hara Hara Shankara! Jaya Jaya Shankara!

Wonderful initiative. Lifeline for us newbies and greenies to the wonderful world of Mahaperiva. I am eager to volunteer. Outstanding initiative 🙂
THIS IS A GREAT NEWS. I KNOW THAT THIS IS A STUPENDOUS TASK. HATS OFF TO YOU FOR ALL THE HARD WORK. IT IS INDEED WOULD BE A BLESSING TO GO THROUGH THIS DIVINE EXPERIENCE.—RAMESH MAHALINGAM
I am sure you have created a “clone” of yourself to do your office work. Periyava closely watching & directing your each and every step. Very envious rather proud of you. Keeeeep goiiiiing !!!!!!
Jaya Jaya Sanakra ! Hara Hara Sanakra!
Clone??I wish!!!! Thanks for the kind words…
Sent from my iPhone
Great Move. We feel highly excited
Indeed it would be an excellent gift to all our periava devotees.
However, with regard to contents it would be better to have those stuffs which Mahaperiava would like otherwise to be aired to general public. If so, I don’t know how far broadcasting Rudram and Chamakam fits here. I had read earlier that our Mahaperiava was not in favour of our vedas taking the forms of cds and tapes.
Anyway, it’s only my view and if you have taken approval on this from present periava already I withdraw my views.
Maha periava saranam.
With warm regards,
Great point….will keep that in mind.

May periyava bless you always in everything
Wonderful. You have all blessings of periyava and you are blessed.
Excellent.This 24 hours non stop radio is not simply an initiative but a Periva movement. I wish, the present generation, should know about Periva and divine powers of Periva. I am 62 years old and posting articles in Periva Form narrating my miracle experiences of Periva. I author and post three articles every week under the name of Gayathri Rajagopal.The miracles, which I experience are more than tangible and unbelievable. With Periva blessings, I am privileged to narrate my experience in Periva Radio. .
Let Periva bless you and your initiative generously. My best wishes to you and your entire team.
Hara Hara Shankara Jaya Jaya Shankara
With divine regards,
Good and blessings of periava be with you. It was originally mettur’s idea that for posterity sake we should keep periava sayings and experiences in writing and now it is gaining momentum. My only appeal and request is that we should try to keep it to actuals and not to make it sensational. There shouldn’t be any politics and we should accept things as they are and never contradict or say something unpalatable. Arrogance is what periyava used to pointout to put down. Shankaraaaa
Sure mama. Will remember these guidelines.
Another milestone Mahesh Garu. Stay on the phase of spreading Periva’s message! We are with you!
I’m up for volunteering. We can also have a slot to stream VDSPS recordings..
I don’t have a radio. But I have decided to buy one exclusively for Maha Periyava 24 x 7 Radio. Mahaperiyava please be with us always and let us the kindly LIGHT.
Jaya Jaya Sankara!
Hara Hara Sankara!!
Sir, I don’t think you need to buy a Radio, just need a computer or a smart phone to listen. Hope this helps.
veda dharma sastra paripala sabha videos- audio contents-. veda parayanams recorded with permission, dhivyanamams at various places etc. all with permission . periyava charanam
Superb initiative Sir…Compliments to you for making us think of Periyava in today’s materialistic world. May I suggest that if with proper permission we can have discourses of Shri. Nochur Venkatraman & Shri. Sundar Kumar & Shri. Velukudi Krishnan every day for 1 hour each, by one of them…
We definitely can look into all these options…

I would like humbly suggest a few points to enhance the wonderful work from your end. We at Shree Vignesh & Co, West Mambalam are the authorised distributors for Brahmsri.Govindapuram Balaji Bhagavathar’s audio and video cd’s. Some of his upanyasams have not come as CD’s… We can try to help you in taking Sri.Balaji Anna’s approval for broadcasting the same.
Secondly, Periayava had great respect and regard for some of HIS comtemperories like Sheshadri Swamigal, Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Bhagwan Yogi Ramsuratkumar, Sringeri Acharya, Poondi Mahaan and the list goes on….. One hour allotment for oher Gnanis will also attract many listeners.Pls do consider the above suggestions….
We shall definitely work closely to ensure all best possible support from our side.
very glad good venture towards the service of mahaswamigal.knswamy
