BYMM Trust Kanchipuram reverently presents the "Mahaperiyava 108 Andhaadi" with the blessings of Sri. Meela Adimai Pradhosha Venkatrama Iyer mama. His nephew Kavichakravarthi Sri S. Krishnamurthy has composed these 108 verses in the Andhaadi format on Sri Kanchi Mahaperiyava.
Sri Kanchi Mahaperiyava dedicated his entire life in spreading the concept of life and living - Sanatana Dharma. Jagadguru Shri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati Mahaswamigal (20 May 1894 – 8 January 1994) also known as the Sage of Kanchi or Mahaperiyava (meaning, "A venerable sage") was the 68th Jagadguru Shankaracharya of the Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham.
He travelled the length and breadth of the country, spreading the essence of Sanatana Dharma. Mahaperiyava's discourses have been recorded in a Tamil book titled "Deivathin Kural" (Voice of God). To learn more - https://www.kamakoti.org/

Andhaadi (Tamil: அந்தாதி) is a unique kind of Tamil poetry constructed such that the last or ending word of each verse becomes the first word of the next verse. In some instances, the last word of the series of verses becomes the beginning of the very first verse, thus making the poem a true garland of verses.
