  13. It is first time seeing Vilvam with 12 leaves. Thank you for sharing

  14. Maha Vilvam Pooja to Maha Periyava! Great Blessing to have such a Divine Dharshan! Hara Hara Shankara, Jaya Jaya Shankara!

  15. Thanks for the wonderful pic and information.
    When I was at Pune we saw that the best Vilvams were from Kolhapur.

    Infact during our Kailash Yatra in 2013, a couple brought a lot of these Vilvams from Kolhapur and it retained its freshness even after 10 days, when we performed the pooja at Manasarovar.

    I also saw one beautiful Vilvam Tree with fresh Vilva-leaves at the Sri Sathya Sai Samithi in Saligramam, Chennai.

  16. In the Kumbakonam town kakahastheeswarar temple (Near Sankara madam Madam street) we can see the Maha vilvam tree. And also in Chennai Thiruvanmiyur Marudeeswarar temple near Vanni tree This Maha vilvam tree is growing…!!!. Do you know this…? A poor boy who daily give one kudalai ( holy bag made out of coconut tree for picking flowers) Maha Bilvam for 10 days( without knowing others),when periyava stayed in Andra pradesh during 1950 s,Finaly he was ‘caught’. and periyava gave him prasadams. While leaving that place, Periyava insturcted the Villeage Head man, ” the death day of the boy has to be intimated without fail to the Kanchi Mutt..” how long period it may took.. After some decades gone one after noon a telegram reached from that village stating the ‘boy’ (now experienced man) has left the world…. While reaching the news, Maha periyava before knowing this immediately went to kamatkshi temple took bath 7 times and did japam in the inner mandapam inside the tank 7 times more than 7 hrs….for him….!!. And reached the Mutt after 10 pm on that day and told the devotees that He has helped the boy’s soul to reach “Swarga loka” after succeeding his sins…! This is the Holiness of Maha Bilvam…!! We must know that 10 days of pooja to Chandra mouleeswara using Maha Bilvam .has took the( boy) or any one to Heaven after “subtracting ” whatever sin one has committed in one’s life…!!! Jaya jaya Shankara…..!!!

  17. Very happy to see 12 thala vilvam. In our house at Saligramam, three thala vilvam tree is there.
    Maha Periyavaa Thiruvadai Saranam.

  18. In Sankar Nagar, Srirangam, in our house there is a vilvam tree, grown naturally. One of our neighbours is insisting and with very abusive language, wants to cut down the tree. We have many times politely told him that cutting trees in general and in particular trees like vivam and atthi are not only against eco friendliness, but also against shastras and teachings of great Acharyas. Only Sri Paramacharya can make such people understand.

  19. There are Vilvams with varied dalams Like3, 5,8,11

  20. Mahesh …i was blessed to have seen ashtadala vilvam recently. Someone from Thiruvanmiyur brought this vilvam for Periyava puja at home on Anusham day. I dont even know of Vilavam with eight dalams! Really you are blessed!!

    • I have seen a massive Bilvam tree in the on the back yard of my mother-in-law’s parental house, which is on the banks of Tunga River at Shimoga.
