For us, Periyava is ‘Umachi (who became) Thatha’…
For Chandramouli mama, Periyava is ‘Thatha (who is) Umachi’ !!!

Sri Chandramouli mama – son of Mani Sastrigal is the grand son of Sri Ganapathi Sastrigal (MahaPeriyava’s Purvaasharama brother). His wife Smt Mangalam comes from the lineage of “Kalavai Periyava”. Kalavai Periyava is her great grand mother’s Periyappa in Purvaasharama.

    Every episode in this series is a scintillating Experience! The Guruswamy’s clear understanding of Maha Periyava’s Grace, the equanimity shown by Sri Chandramouli while narrating the circumstances of his father Sri Mani SasthrigaL’s passing away, Brahmasri Vedapuri Maama’s Devotion to Maha Periyava and His doing Namaskaarams to Maha Periyava three times on behalf of Sri Mani SasthrigaL and then on his personal behalf to this day as ordered by Maha Periyava, Maha Periyava doing Gharbhavaasam for one year at Sivaasthaanam at that time, Sri Bala Periyava’s Reverence to Sri Mani SasthrigaL as He Learnt from Maha Periyava, Special private, High and Divine Discourses by Maha Periyava which are not known to us today as they are forgotten by Sri Chandramoului due to Divine Play of Maha Periyava, every detail is nectarine. Many thanks for sharing. I had the opportunity of being at Kurnool in 1983 on Vijaya Dasami Day with my family members and had Divine Dharshan of all three Periyavas together. Hara Hara Shankara, Jaya Jaya Shankara! Maha Periyava ThiruvadigaLe CharaNam! Mani SasthrigaL AvargaL ThoNdin Perumai Sollavum Arithe!
