Welcome To MahaPeriyavaPuranam.Org

Namaskarangal !!!

“Experiences With MahaPeriyava” – So many devotees, so many divine experiences, so many soul touching narrations bringing tears in our eyes thinking of Periyava, so many hilarious incidents making us travel back in time and laugh visualizing those moments… This spiritual journey has been one of its kind … It is a great pleasure and privilege to be a part of this Divine Work. It is the Anugraham and Guru Krupai to do Guru Kainkaryam. No words would be apt other than saying – “Avan Arulale Avan thal vanangi”.

PeriyavaSriSar

  • Sri Veda Vyasa compiled 18 Puranam and gave a name to each of the Puranam…
  • Sri Sekkizhar Peruman compiled the life stories of the SivanAdiyar and named it as “Periya Puranam”…
  • When we talk about the experiences of the devotees of Sri MahaPeriyava and Sri Sivan Sar, it is very apt to name it “Periyava Puranam”…

Capturing and documenting the experiences of the devotees of Sri MahaPeriyava was never a planned initiative. With a camcorder in hand, it all started so casually…

Inspired by M ( Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna), though this work was started many years back, initiated by Sri Mettur Swamigal, Periyava Puranam has taken a very good shape in the last 4 years. Many devotees have worked for this and they continue to do so. Few names are known, many remain unknown. Primarily, these video experiences came to limelight through “Sage of Kanchi” WordPress site and later through MahaPeriyava.Org as well. Since then, the family of Periyava devotees has been growing manifold…

Blessed were those who were electrified in the mere presence of Sri MahaPeriyava
Blessed were those who were blessed in person by Sri MahaPeriyava
Blessed were those who had miraculous experience with Sri MahaPeriyava
Blessed were those who drank the nectar of wisdom from Sri MahaPeriyava
Blessed were those who were guided by Sri MahaPeriyava
But equally blessed are those devotees who have the blessing to emotionally feel such of those unique experiences through books, videos and audio sources.

Moving forward, “MahaPeriyavaPuranam.org” will continue to host more treasurable videos/audio/photos/article of Periyava Puranam. It will be a companion for the seekers like us in the path of Bhakti.

“Loka samastha sukhino bhavanthu”
Seeking the blessings for all…

    அருமையான பணியில் ஈடுபட்டு செவ்வனே நடத்தி வருகிறீர்கள்.
    என் போன்ற பக்தர்களுக்கு ஒரு வரப்ரஸாதம் தங்கள் விடியோ,
    பெரியவா பற்றிய செய்திப் பரிமாற்றம் எல்லாமே! தங்கள் தொண்டு வளர்க!
    பெரியவா சரணம் அவர் கடாக்ஷம்.

    பெரிய புராணத்துக்கு சேக்கிழார் பெருமான் இட்ட பெயர் ‘பெரிய புராணம்’ அல்ல. ‘திருத் தொண்டர்’ புராணம்.

    அதேபோல, இங்கே ஐயனின் திருத் தொண்டர்கள் பகிரும் புராணங்கள். (சம்பவங்கள், அனுபவங்கள்).

    திருத் தொண்டர் – அதாவது தொண்டர்கள் இறைவனின் விலைமதிக்க முடியாத செல்வங்கள். அதனாலேயே அவர்கள் திருத் தொண்டர்கள். (மரியாதைக்குரிய, போற்றுதலுக்குரிய தொண்டர்கள்).

    இறைவன் மிக மதிக்க முடியாத, எத்தனை விலை கொடுத்தும் வாங்கப் பட முடியாத செல்வம். அதனாலேயே அவன் திரு.

    அப்படியாப் பட்ட, அந்த திரு நமக்கு வேண்டும் என்றால் ஒரே விலை, அவனது தொண்டர்கள் பற்றிய புராணங்களை நாம் கேட்பதும், பார்ப்பதும், படிப்பதுமே ஆகும். அந்த தொண்டர்களைப் பிடித்து, அதன் மூலம் அவனைப் பிடித்து விடலாம்.

    தில்லை வாழ் அந்தணர் தம் அடியார்க்கும் அடியேன் என்று பாடிய சுந்தரரைப் பிடித்து எப்படி சோமாசி மாற நாயனார் சிவபெருமானைப் பிடித்தார் என்பது நமக்கெல்லாம் ஐயன் சொல்லிக் கொடுத்து தெரிந்தது தானே?

    இப்போது, பெரியவா புராணத்தைப் பார்க்கிறோம், கேட்கிறோம். இவற்றை எல்லாம் நாம் பெரியவாபுராணம் என்று எழுத்து வடிவில் கூடிய விரைவில் படிக்க அந்த எல்லாம் வல்ல பரம்பொருளாம் எளியார்க்கு எளியன் ஐயன் அருள் கைகூட்டட்டும்.

  19. karthi nagaratnam says

    How these interviews impact ordinary souls like me?

    I am going to write a detailed note …

    Sri Ramadurai Mama himself is an example to us…

    I think I need to see the two parts with pencil and note pad for couple of times, and surely we can come up with a book with 20 chapters or even more.

    But the most important thing that attracted me is references to Brahma Sri Veda Puri mama.

    In many places he refers Brahma Sri and couple of instances he cries also …

    Touching part is when he says kodi namaskarams to vedapuri mama…

    These interviews are all lessons.

    It transforms every individual …as Sri rama durai mama himself says…

    In total a blissful experience…

    • M.Narayanan says

      ThonDartham Perumai Sollavum ARithee! These Experiences should come in book form also. Great efforts will succeed by Maha Periyava’s Grace! Hara Hara Shankara, Jaya Jaya Shankara!

    visit to our flat at Perambur last month to see Brahmasri.Vedapuri sastrigal who was kind enough to stay with us for about 10 days.
    I am very happy I was instrumental in arranging the interview by you with Dr.Mani Veeraraghavan whom I met as a patient and he started his exps.with mahaperiavaa.
    Reg.interview , a small request.Please make a list of all the interviews of Experiences with Mahaperiavaa – that is name of all devotees in an pdf file with url no. so that
    we do not want to miss not even one interview.To my knowledge it should be around 250 to 270 in nos. so far.Though it is a laborious process to recall accl pl. do it for the sake
    of all mahaperiavaa devotees-Ravishankar,Perambur

    • says

      Namaskaram.
      Thanks for your valuable feedback on making a list of interviews so that it will be easy to access. As this site has just been launched, there is constant improvisation. We are getting feedback from many devotees that is helping us improvise it. Will look into how to put together the feature you are asking for.

    • S.CHANDRAMOULI says

      Mr. R.Ravishankar sir, if you are related to Bramasri Vedapuri Sastrigal, tell him i am the second son of Sri Mani Sastrigal. I had enough meeting with Sri Vedapuri Mama, Whenever, where ever we meet he use to tell that
      UMMACHI / PILLAIYAR instructed him to do 3 times Sashtanga Namaskarams to UMMACHI [ mahaperiyava]
      on behalf of MANI SASTRIGAL along with Vedapuri mama’s Namaskarams.

    Aiyan’s Leela for today…

    I am watching Sri Anayampatti Ganesan’s daughter Smt. Meera’s interview(Kannappa Nayanar!!!).

    while watching in parallel, I was going through the Sage of Kanchi FB Group. At one point, the mouse stopped the movement. It was Aiyan’s one of the eyes. the same time, I saw the following poem lines posted by some devotee…

    இரு விழிகள் வினவும்! இரு விழிகள் அருளும் !
    இருவிழியால் ஒருதரம் எனைப் பார்த்தால் போதும்!
    ஒரு நோக்கு உடைக்கிறதே பல ஜன்ம வினைகள்!
    ஒரு குருவும் இது போலக் கண்டதில்லை யாமே!

    Really don’t know who is He…pleasantly thrilled how thematic He is…

    Is He not with us anymore? Who can say ?

  22. Subramanian V says

    Sivaramanji,
    My humble namaskarams at your feet. May Periyava shower His bountiful blessings
    on you for ever !!!

  23. Subbulakshmi says

    Dear sir,

    Namaskaram, Your service is incomparable, When did you start this and share your experience and how you got this ideas of this service to motivate us.

  24. Krishnan Santhanam says

    Dear Sivaraman Sir

    What you have done is an extremely blessed task for generations to come. For people like me though lived During Mahaperiyavas’s time could not know enough about him and you have done a Divine service to millions of people in opening up the treasure of Mahaperiyavas’s life and grace through interviews with such blessed souls who were fortunate enough to come in cotact with Him. Words are not enough to thank you. May He bless you and your good work.

  25. says

    Dear Shivaraman,
    Sri Periyava has chosen you to do this remarkable task of recording video experiences on the very first day HE asked you to bring Vegetables and fruits skins for Cows…

    It was HIS grace that brought you to Sri SAR too as well.

    I wish you should do a similar work for Sri Sivan SAR (devotees experiences and YPM book related matters on videos) soon. I prefer to give you about 30 minutes recording of information/experiences about Sri SAR and could do more also with HIS Blessings.

    I admire the team effort put into this website in bringing in various information about Sri MahaPeriyava and Sri SAR.

  26. says

    Sir,
    It is a great work indeed. Blessed are you. Still, thousands of people in this World are yet to open their mouth and share their divinely experience. One day or other they will definitely do so.

    I personally feel, this is nothing short of reading Ramayana/Mahabharatha/Bhagavatham.

    “MAHAPERIYAVA PURANAM” can be called another EPIC, is it not true?

    If read with devotion, there exists SOLACE, agitated mind becoming calm, solution for almost all the problems we face, quest to read much more, a trace of confidence is poured in, be it in any field.

    I am moved, full of tears and gratitude…

  27. Sai Suba says

    Namaskaram Sivaraman Sir,

    Thank you very much for video taping the experiences of devotees. Until 6 months ago, I had no idea about Maha Periyava, although I had visited Kanchi madam about 15 years ago and have seen Periyava’s wax idol in the madam.

    For the past 6 months I have been watching the “MahaPeriyava Experiences” videos in Youtube. My experiences after watching some of the devotees sharing their moments with MahaPeriyava are beyond comprehension.

    I wanted to share my recent experience which re-emphasized the fact that although Periyava is not with us physically, he is still listening to us, guiding us and blessing us in aruvam form.

    Recently I got married. Part of my wedding plan, I was thinking about keeping Maya Periyava’s picture in Kalyana medai as I felt like I want Periyava during my wedding. But in one of the Videos I heard the devotee saying Periyava does not like others to take his picture. So, I told myself.. “Since Periyava did not like pictures I will not keep his picture in the stage. But yet I will pray to him and meditate on him and plead for his blessings as I believe he is still living with us in aruvam form. If he wishes to show his physical form, somehow he will”. Then our wedding happened and we were getting ready to leave the Mandapam. One of our relatives, who was about to leave the mandapam, came running to us and gave two Periyava pendants saying, they did pooja with those pendants during Navarathri and he would like us to keep it with us! After I received Periyava’s pendant, I was so overwhelmed with joy and tears. I am sorry, I don’t know the exact words to describe my experience I had on that day. MahaPeriyava Charanam.

    I am still continuing to learn a lot of things by watching the experiences video in Youtube. I also bought Theivathin Kural this time when I went to India.

    Thank you so much sir for posting the videos and doing the great service!! Thanks a ton! May Periyava’s blessing be with you always.

  28. Chithra Subramanian says

    Thank you Shri.sivaraman for the great service you are doing not only for us but for generations to come.

    Everytime I watch a video I get a message for what is going on in my mind.. I keep watching Ramadurai mama’s interview and keep learning from it. To get a chance to hear such humble souls itself is a blessing.

    Just curious ! Would love to hear about your interactions and experiences with Appa (Mahaperiyava). Can we have it please or is it already there?

    May Appa bless you to continue this great service ! Appa Saranam

  29. ram anandh says

    Hearing regularly the voices of devotees narrating how periyava guided them and how he blessed them.me too having a small experience with the god but feels shy to share my small experience among these great devotees
