• Maha Periyava, also known as the Sage of Kanchi or the Paramacharya, refers to Sri Chandrasekarendra Saraswati Swamigal, the 68th Shankaracharya of the Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham. He is highly revered as a spiritual luminary and a saint in India.

• This golu doll is a representation of the Maha Periyava, which shows him in a sitting position.

• Golu is a doll and figurine festival held in South India during Navaratri and Dussehra. It is a set of steps decorated with bommais (dolls) of all shapes and sizes to tell a story about a Hindu or secular cultural issue. Every Kolu needs a refreshing twist with beautiful handmade dolls.

• Maha Periyava was born on May 20, 1894, in Villupuram, Tamil Nadu, and he became the head of the Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham in 1907 at the young age of 13. He held this position for over 87 years until his Mahasamadhi (divine departure) in 1994.

• During his lifetime, Maha Periyava captivated people with his wisdom, compassion, and simplicity. He was known for his profound spiritual knowledge, deep devotion, and adherence to traditional practices.

• His teachings encompassed a wide range of subjects, including spirituality, Vedanta, Bhakti, ethics, and social welfare.

• Maha Periyava emphasized the importance of leading a righteous life, practicing devotion, and upholding the values of Sanatana Dharma (eternal principles). He encouraged spiritual seekers to delve into self-inquiry and meditation, and he guided devotees on their spiritual journeys.

• Maha Periyava is renowned for his profound wisdom, spiritual teachings, and compassionate nature. His teachings emphasized the importance of devotion, humility, and service to humanity. He played a pivotal role in reviving and promoting Hindu traditions, culture, and spirituality.

• Including a Maha Periyava Golu doll in the Golu display during Navaratri or in one's home is a way to pay homage to this great spiritual master and seek his blessings. It serves as a reminder of his teachings, wisdom, and the values he espoused.

• His peaceful countenance and radiant presence are beautifully captured in the Dassara doll, reflecting his spiritual stature and revered persona.

• Maha periyava golu bommai is a traditional Kolu doll crafted with high quality material.

• Decorate your Kolu bommai with this unique collection of Golu dolls for this Navarathri from Giri.

• An ideal present for festivals like Navaratri, Diwali, and housewarmings.

• During Navaratri, people visit each other's homes to see the Golu display and offer prayers. It is considered an auspicious time to seek blessings from the Divine and to celebrate the victory of good over evil.

• This doll stands apart from usual golu doll because it is painted in vivid, rich colors with a different composition and definition.
