109 years ago, on 13th Feb 1907 (English Date & Tamil date Maasi 2nd which is tomorrow Sunday), at the tender age of 13, a boy called Swaminathan took Sanyasa Aashramam and ascended as Peetaathipathi of Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Matam.
His Sanyasa Deeksha Naama is Jagadguru Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati Swamigal. But to millions of people, HE is MahaPeriyava – Our Umachi Thatha!!!
On this auspicious day, here is Umesh sharing an incredible painting of Sri MahaPeriyava with us!
