Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara,
I want to share with you all a great “Periyava” series I have been watching for the past couple of weeks in Bombay Chanakys Fastflix YT channel (this has been telecast in Sankara TV as well). This series has been directed impeccably by Bombay Chankya who previously directed a series called Karma, which was awesome as well.
For starters, this series is not about Periyava’s biography nor devotee experiences. It is a series that focusses mainly on Periyava’s teachings from Deivathin Kural that is narrated through small pragmatic incidents. The importance of doing Trikaala Sandyavandanam, Veda Rakshanam, Pidi Arissi Thittam, Periyava’s dislike for Brahmins going abroad has been covered so far. Each episode lasts about 20 mins and 12 episodes have been completed till now. The title song is very impressive and the screenplay is pretty swift.
Shri Muthu Venkatraman who has acted as Maha Periyava has absolutely lived as Periyava and it is a privilege watching this series that has so many takeaways for all of us.
Below is the YT link to the Bombay Chankya’s Fastflix channel that also has several promos and the making of this serial. I would suggest all to watch this from very first episode as it very engrossing and educating.
Sri Periyava Thiruvadi Sharanam,
