Rare photo of Sri Periyava


Thanks to Hari from Australia to share this rare photo.

Along with Periyava are (L-R) –  Sri Veezhinathan mama, some mama from Sri Matam, Sri Vanjinathan mama, Brahmasri Vedapuri mama. I have heard from Veezhinathan mama’s experiences about Vanjinathan mama as someone that Mahaperiyava had lot of regards and this mama was working closely with Mahaperiyava in those days it seems.

Great photo.

Thanks Hari

Periyava Sharanam

  2. Namaskarams – Did Mahaperiyavaa advise to keep a glass of water by the side of the head while going to bed? If so, what is the significance of it? I remember having heard it in a video about Mahaperiyavaa experiences but could not locate it.
