This is part of the same event conducted by on Mahaperiyava aradhana day. Sri Ganapadigal mama shares the beautiful incidents about Mahaperiyava – story of how Durga Pancharathnam was written by Mahaperiyava.

In this video, he is talking about a slokam written by Mahaperiyava that brings Kamakshi, Adi Sankara & three periyavas. I would like to know if this text is available somewhere. Or if there is any volunteer who can type that slokam, it would be great.
