Sri. Srinivasa Rao shares his experience with Sri Mahaperiyava and Sri Sivan SAR. He’s 95 years young and shares his experiences so clearly. He had the baghyam of doing thirupani to Thirukazhukundram Sivan Koil and also involved in the construction of Sri Anantha Padmanabha Swamy temple, Chennai. He narrates the incidents that happened during the construction of the temple and also the Anugraham which Sri MahaPeriyava showered for this Dharma Karyam to take place without any hindrance. Srinivasan mama firmly believes that without Sri MahaPeriyava’s blessings his dream wouldn’t have transformed into a reality. In fact, it’s a learning for all of us. In order to express his gratitude, he had named the kalyana mandapam owned by the temple trust as Sri Kanchi Mahaswamy Anantha Mandapam.
Before meeting Srinivasan mama we all had a discussion on where to have Sri Sivan SAR’s Aaradhanai which is to be held on 19th March 2022. All of a sudden Kanchi Mahaswamy Anantha Mandapam came to our mind. Having Sri Sivan SAR’s Aaradhanai at Sri MahaPeriyava’s place is undoubtedly a double delight. Finally, got it in touch with mama and to our surprise we came to know that he has been associated with Sri Sivan SAR and Sri SAR used to visit his home daily by 7 PM and would ask him to read Yenipadigalil Mandhargal. One thing is for sure, HE is the doer and we are just an instrument involved in doing the monumental task.
