Maha Periyavaa Ashtaka Stotram

Maha Periyavaa Jagat Guru Ashtaka Stotram
Translated by P. R. Ramachander

[Jagatguru Swami Chandra Shekara Saraswathi who was the previous Peedathipathi of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam was a living God to his devotees and continues to be even after Samadhi. All his devotees in a hushed tone full of devotion refer to him as "Maha Periyvaa" meaning the "Great One". I got this stotra written in Tamil from]
