Smt Srimathy mami , wife of Sri Kadambavana Sundaram is an ardent devotee of Sri MahaPeriyava and our Sri Matam… Everyday, you can see mami in Sri Chandramouleeswara Poojai and Sri MahaPeriyava Adistana Poojai. Mami’s kaingaryam (the cumbersome and tiresome physical work) during Sri MahaPeriyava Aradhanai at Pradosham mama’s house and many of our Acharyal’s Aradhanai is par excellence and beyond comparison…
Sri MahaPeriyava himself once mentioned to Ramanatha Chettiar that Kadambavana Sundaram has bhakthi on HIM from head to toe. Mami’s bhakthi towards Sri MahaPeriyava is no less when compared to her husband… Mami reached Sri MahaPeriyava’s lotus feet on Dec 15th 2015 around noon (IST).
Updated: The above picture is from Sri Kumaresan Mama’s house. The spot where the Deepam is lit is where Sri MahaPeriyava sat when HE visited Sri Kumaresan Mama’s house in 1989. Smt Srimathy Kadambavanam merged with Sri MahaPeriyava in the same spot. A blessed soul indeed!
We are in a way fortunate to view mami’s experience with Sri MahaPeriyava through this short 9 minutes video:
