It is a matter of great pleasure for us to share this good news on this very special day of Ganesh Chaturthi - yes, this Satsang has now crossed the landmark of 4000 members and increasing further every other day. Agreed that it is just another number, but to get so many devotees of Periva in one Forum is amazing and is a reaffirmation to the unflinching faith that so many of us have towards Sri Maha Periva. More importantly, it just goes on to show the ever-expanding width and breadth of His karunaa-kataksham and blessings!
We sincerely submit all our prayers to Him for having guided us all through this journey and look forward to Him for making this even better.
At this point, we also express our sincere thanks to all our moderators and respected members who have been posting tirelessly for so many years as a selfless service. Special mention must be made about the following people (in no particular order - just random):
* Smt Sumi - for always being around to this cause and in the service of this Forum, continued assistance in administration and in the Daily Divine Thoughts series and on the publication of ebooks series. Thank you Sumi!
* Sri anusham163 - what a source of inspiration he has been! Unbelievably realistic paintings, sketches of Periva and innumerable translation works about Him - all these were possible on this Forum only thanks to Sri Narayanan Bala. Thank you Sir!
* Sri radha sir - you have always been one of the greatest support this Forum had ever since the start. Your variety and width of coverage of posts is unmatched still. Thank you!
* Sri saidevo sir - Many a time, people think that the tamil poems posted by Sri Saidevo are a collation or compilation from printed literature. Little do we realize that he is a superb and accomplished personality in not just English (as known with his translated series of articles) but also in Tamil. The countless number of வெண்பா and other quick poems he has compiled on the go narrating some of the experiences posted by members is good enough indication of this. Thank you so much Saidevo sir!
* Sri P R Ramachander (ramya475) - certainly he is the Bhishma Pitaamaha when it comes to translation of complex subject matter, especially if we are picking anything from Vedas, Upanishads, Slokas, Kritis and the like. He has translated thousands of such works already and spread his service to the entire world already, and still finds time to pick some odd song or sloka published in this Forum and help us with those too. Our sincere thanks to you Sir!
* Smt Uma Shankar (uma2806) - Smt Uma has been one of our greatest helping hands. We could always turn to her at any given point in time for typing out or converting any material on Periva in any form, and she does not know to say no for any of our requests. An ardent devotee of Periva, she has also helped us with lot of beautiful material on Periva including the special edition ebook we published on Periva's travels throughout India. Thank you Umaji!
* Sri Subi Anna (subi24) - You have always been a guiding light for this group, especially with your excellent ebook series on Periva's life and on Bhajans boards. Devotees will not forget the wonderful bhajans you presented in person for us at Chennai during last year's celebrations. You have cast a long lasting impression on so many of us - thank you Subi Anna!
* Sri Cnupne (cnupne) - Outstanding commitment and posting of various daily posts and posters on Periva, and as a contributor for ebooks too. Many thanks Sir.
* Sri Varagooran (varagooran) - Sri Varagooran has just been our outstanding contributor in recent past with so many relevant posts for each day. He takes the pain of typing out lot of material by hand and getting them online to the devotees of Sri Maha Periva. His service shall certainly be rewarded with a bounty of blessings from Periva. Thank you Sir.
* Sri kahanam - Been a big source of guidance and inspiration for a lot of our members with his appropriate comments and links to various posts.Many thanks!
* Sri mkaraman - Has been a supportive help for various new members and has encouraged so many of them with his positive responses and suggestions. Thank you Sir!
There are so many more of our respected members who deserve a special mention but am just stopping with this list and not making it difficult for everyone with a long content to read through. But it would suffice to say one big thanks to this entire community of dedicated, ardent devotees of Sri Maha Periva for growing this network so big and for helping us all learn so much more about Periva.
We once again submit our prayers to Sri Maha Periva and request His shower of abundant blessings to every member and their family.
