Kalki Artist Shri Vinu's incredible paintings!

'Voice of Kanchi Swamigal' Shri Ra Ganapathi and Sri Vinu the artist of Kalki magazine  went and had darshan of Sri Mahaperiyava.

Spoke to Shri Vinu's son in law Shri Anantharaman today. He told me that Shri Vinu had drawn Kamakshi originally on a 6 feet by 4 feet canvas and had it framed. Four people carried it to Tirupati to have the Anugraham of Swamigal, Who was camped at that time. Swamigal on seeing them coming, told the people around:

"Make way, make way, Ambal is coming!"

Then He symbolically wrote 'Om' over the picture.  He asked Shri Vinu, " Have you closed Her eyes?" Shri Vinu replied, "Yes."

Swamigal then replied, 'Yes, that is the way it should be! For She is Thapas Kamakshi!"

And then Kalki magazine published the picture of Kamakshi in their 1969 edition!

He also mentioned that Shri Vinu's 
drawings are seen on the covers of the first six volumes of Deivathin Kural. (Voice of God book).

These drawings of 
Sri Mahaperiyava, Sri Anjaneya swamy and Kamakshi Ambal  by Vinu was blessed by Sri Mahaperiyava . Now it is available for Rs 120 only ( all the three paintings) + Rs 80/ for packing and courier. Along with the three pictures they also provide a Hanuman Pooja book free of cost. 

I spoke to Shri Sivaraman  and he mentioned that Shri Vinu's family is not doing well financially and hence the request. Those interested please contact Shri C V Anantharaman, son in law of Shri Vinu, at 97913 55593.

Here are the online transfer details:

Bank Account Name: C.V. Anantharaman
Bank Account Number: 046900101011803
Bank IFSC code: CORP0000469
Bank: Corporation Bank, Tambaram Sanatorium branch

Please mention your home address where you want the drawings to be sent and send an email to Smt Kalyani at She is the daughter of Shri Vinu.
Their family also has a Maruti Trust and do their bit for the society like poor family's children's education, old people and the physically challenged ones.

Please, let us not judge anyone's motive and simply help without any reservations. And let us not take printouts of these pictures, but instead buy them from their family!

Now, how about those paintings! Incredible are they not! Shankara.

Thanks a ton everyone!
