HH Swaminatha Indra Saraswathi Swamigal (“Shri Balu Swamigal”) reached the Lotus feet of Sri MahaPeriyava today.
Shri Balu Swamigal’s Adishtana Pravesam can be viewed below. Hearty thanks to Vignesh Studios for this video and photos.
Royapuram Balu fondly called as “Balu Mama” has served Sri MahaPeriyava for many many years. Our eyes can’t skip the sight of Shri Balu Mama (in Purvaasharama) in most of the pictures of Sri MahaPeriyava. That symbolizes his journey with MahaPeriyava for decades and decades. He has been one of the Shiva Ghanas in human body serving our Periyava who is Saksat Parameshwaran.
Our Shraddanjali to Shri Balu Swamigal.
So many devotees… so many experiences… and in numerous incidents, the name “Balu Mama” gets mentioned repeatedly with so much fondness and respect.
Here is a small video snippet of a devotee from Wisdom’s Golden Rod who had darshan of Sri MahaPeriyava in 1986. She remembered Shri Balu Mama so vividly (by name even after 25+ years) along with her experience with Sri MahaPeriyava…
