Here is a magnificent painting of Sri MahaPeriyava by a 12th standard student “Saismrithi” and her own words from the bottom of her heart.
Saismrithi Govindarajan, May Sri MahaPeriyava and Sri Sivan SAR be with you and your family! Thanks for sharing your artwork with us.
“Shree MahaPeriyava Saranam”
Every person has a way of staying connected to the almighty. MahaPeriyava is mine. He is THE ONE I perceive as Guru, Deivam!
Having read and heard about HIS greatness through my family, all of us at home believe MahaPeriyava is always watching us, guiding us and giving all the strength to do everything!
A class 12th student, I have always had a keen interest in all forms of art. I train under Mrs.Lakshmi Raghavan, a true Periyava Devotee herself. I feel sketching and painting brings me closer to the pure soul. I truly believe it shows where I stand. I draw to get 100% satisfaction. When I get that inner satisfaction, I know He is happy. But when I don’t, I think it is MahaPeriyava Himself telling me to work harder and do better. I do not restrict this benchmark only to art. I compare it in all I do. So through each picture, He pushes me to reach the next level.
I do not draw for the sake of doing so. It is a decision taken at that moment when I see a picture. It is the urge within to reproduce it on paper.
This drawing was done last week. An instantaneous spark within me told me to do this and I wanted to give it all I had. Having my boards around the corner, it was a challenge because I didn’t want to just do it for the sake of it but at the same time wanted it to turn out well.
I sincerely believe He gave me the patience and strength to complete the portrait with immense pleasure and satisfaction. I know He is happy with it and I receive this message through all your blessings.
According to me, this is one way of Him communicating with me, telling me that all is well and will always be!
