2015 in review



While we are busy posting and reading articles on a daily basis, it is good to note that someone else is doing some analysis to give some fun facts…Thanks WordPress!

Thanks for the support and  without your encouragement this wouldn’t have been possible.. Thanks for being with me and making me part of your family..

I say this because I have seen motherly, brotherly treatment to me all the time from so many people. Recently I was in NJ where I was treated like a son by a mother  who has been visiting US for a short time. I was pretty moved by her love – she did exactly what my mother does – kept feeding me, yet unsatisfied, she packed food for me and my wife for next few days – prayed for me!! Subathra – thanks for your email and it just came at the right time and I am very glad that I met your mother. This is all because of Periyava and the blog. I am so fortunate to know you all.

In 2015, together, we did these (something that WordPress won’t cover!)::

  1. Starting Periyava Karyam Blog (periyavakaryam.wordpress.com)
  2. Forming Kanchi Guruparampara Foundation (www.kgpfoundation.org) with the divine blessings of HH Balaperiyava & Pudhuperiyava
  3. Supported kumbabishekams of two maha-kshetramsThirupunavasal, Tirumeyachur
  4. Supported few veda parayanams
  5. Launching of Periyava Radio
  6. 3rd year of continued support to Tiruvanaika Patasala and other gho/patasalas/agnihotris from the corpus fund we created since 2012+
  7. Did little contribution to Sunday sahasra gayathri japam movement in US. Together with Hari Ramasubbu – we started this with just 4-5 folks and now this is a 90+ member group! I am happy to be part of this. In few weeks, we will have an mobile app ready for this too 🙂
  8. Mobile app (Kanchi Sankara) launched that is planned to address all the activities of blog & KGF.

These are not accomplishments of any single person – this is the power of Periyava satsang! With right set of folks, you can achieve anything and if our intents are good, Periyava will truly bless us. Periyava Radio is a classic example of that – we have a team of 7-8 folks working tirelessly and more importantly selflessly! With these proven results, I am motivated to do more with you all….HH Balaperiyava had already given some direction to get involved in few projects in 2016. I will share more with you all on that soon.

While we write about achievements, I also admit that there are things that I probably did not handle well during this year – I am not perfect – I make mistakes too. My apologies to all if I have accidentally hurt your feelings. Also due to lack of time, I accidentally not replied to your emails or missed posting your contents etc – pl accept my apologies. kamakoti_mutt


This family is expanding day by day – let us keep sharing and pray together to Periyava to bless us all..I take this an opportunity to wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year. Let this new year bring all the bests for all of us.

Our namaskarams to all the acharyas of Kanchi Guruparampara!!

Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara!


Ok – now, check out  some fun stats WordPress had prepared.


Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 2,700,000 times in 2015. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 116 days for that many people to see it.

  1. this forum is extremely useful to me personally. Though I had darshan few times of Mahaperiva in my life time and our family is a strong follower of Kanchi Matt for many generation, I understood about Periva and Mutt more than I heard through my family by the communication through sage of kanchi, interviews, devotees experience etc.

    Thank you Mahesh and team for this great service. I pray the Maha Periva to grace more blessings to every one in the universe.

    Servae Jana Sukina Bavanthoo !!

    Happy new year 2016

  2. I am extremely happy and feel blessed to be part of this ‘MahaPeriava Temple’ created and administered by Mahesh and team,. All the best for the new year.

  5. namaskarams to all who have been in this forum. Mahaperiyava during his lifetime never allowed his leelas to come out as a result of which many like me do not realise His abundant grace. Now reading the articles in this forum one is transported to the days of Maha Periyava and come close to experiencing His leela vibuthi. True this could not happen without His abundant grace and the blessings of HH present Periyavas. May Lord Chandramouleeswara bless you to continue this yeoman service to humanity.

  11. YES. MAHESH, Everyone above who have commented is correct. YOU AND YOUR TEAM MEMBERS , VOLUNTEERS and others who are directly / indirectly helping this website, are really fortunate for being selected by our Mahaperiyava for rendering all your time for this noble website. How many interactions, experiences, etc with HIS beloved desciples, Day by day, how many new info on him. Really Amazing our Mahaperiyava.

    Infact it was only Mahaperiyava who turned sidewards to my side and saw me through my eyes just a very few seconds and blessed me with his hands during my only visit with my parents some where i was near 12 years in 1986. This too Mahaperiyava made to recollect only when i started to read this wordpress website. This few seconds of HIS face seeing me is still very clear in my mind now and will remain. Really i feel blessed that HE saw me. Besides HE came in my dream once and that too during one of my tough times and guided me. Oh what a support, cannot forget that dream , which is still in my memory. Love towards him is increasing day by day.This must be the case with others too.

    I am 200% sure that changes will surely come to all those, within themself which is due to the blessings of our Mahaperiyava through this website.

    HE is running the show through you and your team to Bless all.

    Best wishes to you and your team .


  12. Dear Sirs

    Our family is fortunate to have subcribed to this group. Every day is awaited for the events, messages related to Swami. HE had been the embodiment of all Superlatives, but was so easily accessible. Very rare to find another GURU like HIM. But sure that like Ramana, Swami too, engeyum pogavillai, parisudhamana ullathil niranthirikkirar.

    It is up to each one to realize or not. With Pranams. Ramasubramanian SK 9444380720. I have retired from active service this year and am willing to take part in any activities related to THIS movement. I am presently located at Pondicherry sir.

  13. Great work Shri Mahesh and team. We are family of devotees of Mahaperiyava. I shed tears while reading blogs, watching Youtube videos, reading about Mahaperiyava. Why these tears wash my eyes? They just ooze out wash my eyes bring clarity to my thinking, makes me aware of my short comings, Let the shower of Periva’s blessing on all of us and to the whole of mankind. HARA HARA SHANKARA JAYA JAYA SHANKARA.

  14. Good show and well done Mr Mahesh.
    Though a late comer to this blog, I could catch up the good feel and smell of this highly devoeted group administered by you. The varied presentations-alerts, appeals, sharing of Periya literature, recaps, audio, video and even old time cover page photos-, and the latest Periyava Radio, do give a sumptuous new feast every day to the yearning mind. Yesterday , for instance, I destressed myself listening to Udayalur’s bhajans over Periyava Radio.
    A commendable service Mahesh.
    May Periyava Bless you, your family, your team and the blog with the best of everything in 2016.


  16. Thanks Sri Mahesh for sharing all these info. Wish you and your family a VERY VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016. May Periyavas’ blessings be with all of us. Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara.
