Need clarification on these photos?


Thanks to Sri Sriram who sent me these photos. Apparently these are from Telugu publications. Other than Sringeri Acharya the other sanyasi, certainly, is not Mahaperiyava. To me, it looks like Sri Ugar Swamigal – I am not sure. I have seen Sri Ugar Swamigal in one or two photos. Maybe Sri Hubli Ramaswamy mama or someone could clarify these photos….Even so, why would someone mistakenly mention as Kanchi Peedathipathi?! Confused….

I have also given Sri Ugar Swamigal photo from the album….

  1. Is this swami chinmayananda in his young age?

    Or swamy Dayananda saraswathi swamigal?
    Sorry to me it looks like that

    Please correct me if I am wrong

  2. Good to have vibithi alangara darshan on moola nakshatram day. Pranams to MahaPeriawa & charanals.

  3. I agree with Sri Ravi.
    I don’t remember seeing any news item about Maha Periyavaa meeting the Sringeri Acharyas.
    ANyhow thanks for publishing these old photos of Sringeri Acharya.

  4. The 1st 3 pictures, the Sanyasi with rudraksham on the outside is Sri Abhinava Vidya Teertha, guru to Sri Bharati Teertha, paramaguru to Sri VidhuShekara Teertha. All pontiffs of Sringeri.

    My humble pranaams to Sringeri & Kanchi Acharyas.

    Jaya Jaya Shankara Hara Hara Shankara
    Nama Parvathi Pathaye Hara Hara Mahadeva

  5. There has never been such a situation Kanchi and Sringeri Acharyas have met (at least from the time of Pujya Sri. Mahaperiyava), until our Puduperiyava went to Sringeri to discuss Sri Ramajanma Bhoomi matter along with the other 3 sankarAchAryAs. After that one time, there has not been any meeting also.

    There was a possibility of meeting of Sringeri and Kanchi AchAryAs, during Madurai kumbhabhishekam during MahaperiyavAs time, but both of them were in opposite towers of the temple. Typically, any sanyAsi who sees Sri. MahaSwAmiji will have to do namaskAram to Him; this is because of the number of vyAsa PujAs done by a sanyAsi is what determines who is older, when 2 or more sanyAsis meet.

    The swAmi in first 3 pictures certainly is not Pujya Sri. MahaperiyavA.

    My 2 cents…

  6. MahaankaLukku Namaskaaram! Hara Hara Shankara, Jaya Jaya Shankara!

  7. Ugar swamigal with periava in last but not others. Others are also not periava. May be hh odachary Swami who was with periava and sometime saw sringeri swamigal but never travelled with him. It seems some other swamigals and as far as I know from periava yatra of western states there was no meetings of hh sringeri swamigal even during sadas.

    • Dear Sri N Ramaswami,

      Read your comment about the photos. You have rightly identified Sri Ugar Swamigal along with Sri Kanchi Periyava in one of the photos.

      In fact, with the Holy Blessings of Sri Kanchi Periyava, we could enjoy the ‘Satsang’ of both Sri Ugar Swamigal and Sri Kanchi Swamigal at a time, in the year 1979 when Sri Kanchi Swamigal was observing ‘Chaturmasa’ at Shri Gurudev Mandir in Belgaum.

      We enjoyed the ‘Satsang’ – ‘Darshanam’, ‘Sparshanam’ and ‘Sambhashanam’ of these sages daily in the morning as well as in the evening during the ‘Chaturmasa’. Thus, we are blessed by both of them to lead us towards the betterment of spiritual life.

      The above rare photograph has been added to our collection of Sri Periyava’s photos and we are really thankful to the sender.

      With Best Regards,

      Nagesh Ambardekar
      and Niranjan Ambardekar
      Belgaum

  8. The last one is surely of HH Mahaperiva, but the the top three are not. Seems to be some confusion. But nevertheless, blessed darshan of Mahangal.
