Periya Puranam is one of the gems of ancient Tamil Literature. Written in a charming poetic style, it depicts the lives of 63 Shaiva saints known as Nayanmars, with a graphical portrayal of their devotional outbursts in words and actions. The revered author of this great work, Sekkhizar, was himself a great devotee of Shiva.

The depiction of each saint contains three parts: (1) Story of the saint in brief; (2) Related traditional picture in full colour; (3) Line drawings representing the story; and (4) Translation of selected verses from Periya Puranam.

The well-known scholar Dr Prema Nandakumar has put the lofty devotional sentiments of the original epic in a simple but effective style. Small sentences devoid of any artificiality effectively convey the character of the ennobling lives of the saints.

The classical colour paintings and black-white line drawings by eminent artist S Rajam beautifully illustrate the noble devotional outpourings described in the text.

Printed beautifully on thick paper and a pleasing design, the book is a must-read for all the devotees of God.
