About this page

This page provides a list of topics from the volumes of Deivathin Kural which have created an interest among the public by bringing forth details, anecdotes and references, hitherto unknown or forgotten, during the past three hundred years. But for Maha Periyava this great treasure would never have reached the common man.

The meticulous approach to discussing hundreds of issues relating to Sanathana Dharma was Maha Periyava's gift to humanity. The younger generation will be amazed at the "Scientific Approach" to discussing our traditions and culture, coupled with accurate historic information which even scholars of repute would have overlooked.

The topics selected here are indicative of the preferences of many known devotees of Maha Periyava. Hence, arbitrary but nonetheless a list which will kindle one's curiosity about our past.
