In Homage To Uthradom Thirunal Marthanda Varma…

Uthradom Thirunal Marthanda Varma, the Maharaja of the erstwhile Travancore State passed away on 16th December,2013. He was 91.

In a very brief interview and in even fewer words he captures the Quintessence of MahaPeriyava.

Here is Raja’s feelings when he thinks of Maha Periyava :
Periyava was a “Complete” Sanyasi!
Periyava was our “Faith” in human form!
Periyava was “Completely Detached” but “Fully Involved”!

The words chosen by Raja to explain his feelings gives us an insight of MahaPeriyava beautifully carved inside Raja’s heart ! Unfortunately, we are not destined to meet him again.

    Just imagine, the whole country was ruled by Maharaja’s of this stature (barring some exceptions). Rulers who had a deep commitment to Dharma and who honored Sanyasi’s. Couldn’t help comparing. Sorry, you may delete this comment if you find it unacceptable.
