Remembering Balu Mama…




It is one year since Balu Swamigal, referred to as Balu Mamu in His Poorvashrama, attained Mukthi on Bhishma Ekadesi day on January 20th, 2016. He was one of the supremely blessed Kaingaryam persons of Kanchi Mahaperiyava for almost 40 long years.

I will be committing a sin by addressing Him as Balu Mama (and not as Balu Swamigal) because He became a Sannyasi in recent years; but He will always remain as Balu Mama in the Hearts of so many people.

  6. A most deserving soul to attain Mukthi on Bhishma Ekadasi.


  7. What a Great Soul.
    I have had the Good Fortunate of having Darshan of this Mahatma during my almost 15 years of monthly sojourn to the Holy feet of Mahaperiyava.
    He had always been the smiling-sevak and I have never seen him lose his temper under any circumstance.
    Probably he epitomised the teachings of Mahaperiyava.
    Mahaperiyava Saranam.
