Thanks for sharing. I was deeply moved to hear this great Sthothram by Sringeri Acharyal on the Mahima of Sri Guru's Padukas. Beautifully rendered. The pictures of Maha Periyava Padukas and His Lotus Feet interspersed with the rendition are greatly touching. If one thinks about the countless miles Maha Periyava walked for our sake, one can only weep at our deficiencies. Maha Periyava Blessing us at the end from His Athishtanam and "Nan Irukkeen" assurance will save us! Let us all listen to His Upadesams and strive to be better people every day. Jaya Jaya Shankara, Hara Hara Shankara!
