ஸ்ரீ காஞ்சி மாமுனிவர் அந்தாதி Sri Kanchi Mamunivar Anthadi

Savitri Foundation recently released Sri Kanchi Mamunivar Anthadi, a slim volume of 

verses tracing the highlights in the life of the sage. In Anthadi, the last word of a verse 

becomes the opening phrase of the next. It is a hymn, where the thought process continues 

in seamless fashion.

The composer, Karur L. Subramanian, was inspired by a book released in connection with 

Paramacharya’s 60th birthday. He wanted his tribute to be in the Anthadi format. It so 

happened the sage attained samadi when the poem was completed, on Anusham, the star 

on  which He was born. The Anthadi now got a whole new significance. It was circulated as 

a pamphlet, among the devotees, who visited the Kanchi Math, until it reached the hands of 

J. Bala- subramaniam, auditor and founder, Savitri Foundation. He decided to not only 

release the poem as a handy booklet but also get it sung by a musician and the choice fell on 

Dr. R. Ganesh.

Both book and CD were recently released in the city by HH Sri Jayendra Saraswati 

Swamigal and HH Sri Vijayendra Saraswati Swamigal. Dr. Ganesh has rendered the verses 

in 25 ragas, staying true to the syntax. This enables the listener to get the outline as the 

musical journey hits the highlights. 

The book has additional poems composed by various poets as tribute. For details contact 

24616439 and 9176671177..

    is not related to Mahaperiyavaa. With all respect and humbleness to Shringeri Acharyas and Present MahaSannidhanams & Sannidhanam, kindly remove these image as well as the text entries as they're not contextually related.

  15. Sir, there are books other than those related to Mahaperiyavaa. If you're open to share those titles, then I can share some more of them as well. If not kindly limit this page to Mahaperiyavaa, Sri Sivan SAR, and kanchi mutt and its Acharyas.

  17. This is a topic which is near to my heart... Thank you! Where are your contact details though?
