Adhishtanams at Kalavai 66th and 67 th acharyas of the Kanchi mut

Kalavai Adhishtanams:
This small town in Arcot near Vellore  on the Chennai Bangalore highway is the place of the Adhishtanams of two Acharyas preceding Maha periyava. After you cross Ranipet look for a small road to the left leading to Arani before Arcot. The road leads to Tindivanam. At about 20 kms  in between is Kalavai. Take the first right turn inside Kalavai after the petrol bunk there is a huge pond on the left and the Kanchi mutt is on the right IMG_0066 IMG_0063 IMG_0064 IMG_0065

kalavai Today 19/oct/2018 I could have darshan with family and was blessed . A young  patasalai student took me around and explained the importance to me.It seems  after Mahaperiyava attained siddhi ,in a few weeks time, a tulasi plant sprouted here between the Adhishtanams of the senior  periyavas on a grinding stone.When it was plucked out it re appeared and Shri Mahaperiyava appeared in a bhakta’s dream and informed he has appeared in the form of the Thulasi plant and wants to rest herein company of his guru and parmaguru so it should not be tampered with! It is now seen taken care of with utmost reverenceIMG-20181019-WA0036
