Deivathin Kural தெய்வத்தின் குரல்
Welcome to our website. This
site reflects our efforts to provide meaningful
information about the seven volumes of "Deivathin Kural", compiled from
the discourses and discussions by "Kanchi Maha Periyava", known
to all devotees in Tamilnadu as "Nadamaadum Deivam".
Each one of the seven volumes is a massive compilation of information
relating to our Traditions, Scriptures, Literature, Linguistics, History and a
host of other topics. The seven volumes were published over a period of
twentyfive years between 1975 and 2000, the result of monumental effort
by Ra. Ganapthy.
With the advent of the electronic media, several friends had indicated an
interest in providing some means to search through the volumes. This
site addresses this issue and provides some resources for viewers to
locate information with some degree of success. Yet, it must be admitted that
searching for information in this massive collection, poses great challenges in
just figuring out what one might be looking for.
We will consider ourselves blessed if our efforts measure up
to the expectations of our viewers. We extend our hearty welcome.
Volumes of Deivathin Kural
Deivathin Kural is more than a printed publication in terms of what it
contains and what it conveys. The people of India have gained extensive
insights into the Dharmic way of life from what is written in the seven volumes.
One would see a dictionary in the volume while others may read stories or learn about
India's past, and yet many more will see the tenets of Spiritual India explained
in the simplest manner leading to a clear understanding of Vedas and Puranas.
The linked contents provide additional information about the contents of the volumes.
Periyava and Ra. Ganapathy
Ra. Ganapthy, the author of these massive compilations, did not ever envisage
in his early life that one day he will undertake the noble task. He shirked
visibility and remained close to Maha Periyava, meticulously noting down
the essence of dicussions and discourses. Ra. Ganapathy is one of the
blessed persons to have gained some information about Maha Periyava's
personal life. Interesting details are presented through this link.
References on Maha Periyava
From the time the volumes of Deivathin Kural were published, the urge
among the devotees to write about their own (now enhanced) understanding of
Maha Periyava's greatness, has led to scores of publications, all of them
contributing to Value Addition to the seven volumes. Some of these
books have become highly valued references.
Topics of specific
interests in the seven volumes
The massive compilation of Maha Periyava's discourses is very well
structured in terms of major concepts and specific topics. It so happens
that many of these maybe read by themselves without loosing their
relevance to the Dharmic Life in India. These sections are a tribute
to Maha Periyava's extensive research into what constitutes Hindu
way of life.
Over a period of more than a decade, many have extended their
support for our efforts at concordance generation. Here is our
expression of gratitude to them.
