Sri Rama Iswara Periyava book


Periyava’s incidents have been leading to several research topics! Yes, few weeks back, I was at Sri Pradosham mama’s gruham in Kanchipuram, where Sri Sriram handed me a book titled “Sri Rama Iswara Periyava” written by Smt Akila Karthikeyan. It took a while for me to open the book after I returned to US. We have been hearing so many compares Lord Rama with Sri Periyava. This book, very well written, does the same by quoting so many similarities in certain life incidents and devotees experiences that helps us to arrive at a conclusion that Periyava is Rama. So, the question that might come to someone’s mind – “do you really need a proof for this?” – well, it is not a proof, it gets more tastier when certain incidents are correlated properly. Many times when we read an incident, we do not connect the dots properly. The author does a great job here..Great job by all who were involved in bringing out this book.

This is a Tamil book – I have no idea if there are any plans to bring this out in English. Those who are interested, please contact Sriram at the number provided above. Also, I am assuming Kanjira Ganesh Kumar can also be reached out for the same at +91 98-84-460904.

As you know Sri Pradosham mama gruham does not do anything for monetary benefit – their goal is to continue and cultivate non-stop Periyava Smaranai in some shape or form. However, I would suggest you to contribute some token money for the book – all proceedings are spent on all the monthly vaideeka karmas done for Periyava anusham etc. So whatever you give goes towards Periyava event.  I hope Sri Sriram would not mind me writing this without his consent.


Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara!

  1. Dear Shri.Mahesh, With due respects to the work done by the author, I would like you to consider an alternate point of view too. Rama worshipped Ishwara, therefore it would be apt to say Rama is a Maha “Periyava”. We may not be able to say Maha Periyava is ‘also’ Rama. It can also be logically challenged as sanyasis neither have rajya nor grahasthashrama .However, since Rama practiced Dharma, later attained jala samadhi to be eternally alive in the form of water cycle – therefore he is now a Maha Periyavaa. To be honest, however, Rama and Chandrasekherendra Saraswathi are inseperable as he has clarified the qualities of a Rama here:ஸ்ரீ-ராமன்/ !
