Thanks Sri Venkatasubramanian for these treasure articles!
Following the previous article, this article is about first time all three Periyavas are observing Chaturmasyam in Karnool, AP.
Tears in the eyes – not just mine – in all eyes who witnessed Mahaperiyava walked into the river for snanam at the ripe age of 90 in very cold weather in the pouring rain!!!
As nicely written, how lucky those local folks in Karnool were!!
It is interesting to note that Balaperiyava’s sanyasa name was originally “Sri Sankara Anandhendhrar” as per this article. There must be some interesting fact behind how that changed later…
Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara!
