Sri MahaPeriyava Manimantapam – Orikkai

Sri MahaPeriyava Manimantapam – Orikkai

manimantapam

The benevolent presence of Sri MahaPeriyava is palpable in Orikkai and the peace that His Holiness bestowed on the teeming millions who made their way to HIM is to be found in these precincts. This architectural marvel owes its existence to the unparalleled devotion of a humble servant of the Southern Railway, known in his days as “Pradosham Venkatarama Iyer” and “Pradosham Mama” in the circles of devotees of Sri Matam in Kanchi.

He was praying day and night for an all granite, architectural structure in the form of ManiMantapam to preserve and spread the message of the Sage whom he worshipped as Lord Parameswara Himself in human form.

This Manimantapam is a one-in-a-million effort which seeks to revive the 1000 year old architectural grandeur of ancient dynasties. Sri Pradosham mama’s bhakthi towards Sri MahaPeriyava symbolizes through every stone etched in Orikkai Manimantapam.

    Hara Hara Shankara, Jaya Jaya Shankara! Maha Periyava ThiruvadigaLe Charanam! May a small droplet of Prdosham Maama’s Devotion to Maha Periyava be in us also!

    “Seems there is nothing in Sri Mam’s life except Periyava!”

    Sri Vikku Vinayakaram Mama in his video-experience says, “…unfit to even say his name…”
    Another devotee says, “…all we can call is ‘Pradosham Mama’…”

    Sri Vedamurthy Mama says the reason… in his video: “அவரோடது முரட்டு பக்தியாச்சே… “, pointing to Sri Pradosham Mama.

    Several devotees have got Periyava’s anugraham due to Sri Pradosham Mama’s darshan or even otherwise.

    Even Sri Chinna Balu Mama, unseen by Sri Pradosham Mama…was called through his mother & asked him to take some ‘vilvam’ to Periyava. Eventually, Sri Chinna Balu Mama was immensely blessed with service directly to Periyava in the last few years.

    One constant query by Sri Mama to the close circle (thru these videos) rings even now in my ears… “நீ பெரியவாளுக்கு என்ன பண்ணப் போறே?” That’s seem to be the way He uplifts known people closer to Periyava.

    Namaskarams to Sri Pradosham Mama…
    Seeking His blessings to uplift us to…HIS Periyava!

    Ram. Ram.
    Jai GuruDev!
