Sivasri Chandrasekara Gurukkal of Chicago recently contacted me to ask some facts about HH (Bala) Periyava as he is in the process of completing ashtothram for Periyava. Interestingly, we dont have these data points in our fingertips or in a place where we could access. I collected some facts and need some clarifications. Can you all help?
- Date of Birth – 13 March 1969 (Maasi – Uthraadam)
- Place of birth – I thought it is Thandalam, Tiruvallur Dist..In Kamakoti site it says Periyapalayam – not sure which one is correct
- Diksha Dhinam – May 29th, 1983 (Vaikasi – Tritiya – Mula)
- Place of Diksha – not sure where it happened – in this post, it seems like it happened in Mehbub Nagar – not sure. Or was it in Kanchi? Can someone clarify?
- Purvashrama Nama – Sankara Narayanan
- Mother Tongue – Telugu
- Patasala studied – ? In this page, it says Polur – can someone confirm?
Thanks in advance
