Mahadevi Sathsangam is run under the loving and able guidance of Gurupriyaji. She hails from Kancheepuram town of Tamilnadu. She is a blessed shishya of His Holiness Kanchi Paramacharya who is fondly known as Periava throughout the world. She was given the name Gurupriya by Kanchi sage. She is unique in the sense she doesn’t touch money.
She started her spiritual voyage writing religious travelogue in Mangai magazine. In her mid twenties with divine grace she started drawing the picture of Hanuman in one stroke and filled it up with Ram Nam. It was blessed by Periava and she was instructed to draw for all without specifying any amount and earmark the said sum for the renovation of ancient Lakshminarasimha temple at Sevillimedu near Kancheepuram.
