    Experiences with Maha Periyava: Give the Horoscope to her!

    (Anything can happen at Sri Maha Periyava’s sannidhanam. For one who can read the minds of the people, is it difficult to know what is in the bag)

    Mukundaraj was working as the post master of the Aathur village. He had been promoted and transferred from Chennai to Aathur. He had a son who had studied M.Tech.

    He thought that his son should get a job in US based on his studies. He wanted to check his son’s horoscope before he started looking for a job. At that time, there was an astrologer named Ramabatlu Sastrigal from Andhra Pradesh residing at Bethanayakanpalayam. Mukundaraj gave his son’s horoscope to his assistant, Srinivasan who was well acquainted with the astrologer.

    The astrologer said that Mukundaraj’s son would get a job in the US and would marry a girl within the relatives circle. He also said that all this would happen within the next four months. In fact the astrologer wrote this and gave it to Srinivasan.

    Since Mukundaraj was not in town when Srinivasan came back after meeting with the astrologer, he kept the horoscope with himself in his bag safely until Mukundaraj came back.

    Srinivasan had a habit of visiting Sri Maha Periyava once a month. After a few days of visiting the astrologer, he had gone to visit His Holiness. There were a lot of devotees visiting Him and they
    were supplicating their prayers.

    When her turn came, a lady asked if her son would get a job in the US and also get married soon. Periyava smiled and looked in the direction of Srinivasan. Srinivasan did not know that the lady was none other than the wife of the post master Mukundaraj.

    “Can you give me the horoscope that you have safely kept in your bag?” asked Maha Periyava. As Srinivasan was taking it out (with the astrologer’s writing) Periyava asked him to hand it over to the lady. At that moment both Srinivasan and Mukundaraj’s wife realised what was happening.

    How did Periyava know about the horoscope in the bag? He did know that Mukundaraj’s wife would come there. Any miracle can happen at Periyava’s Sannidhanam. Is it difficult to know what is inside the bag for the His Holiness who can easily look into the hearts of the people?

    "இதை அப்படியே அவாள எடுத்துக்க சொல்லு. உத்தரவிட்டார்.

    கொண்டுவந்தவர், பெற்றுக்கொண்டவர், இதை கண்டவர் என, எல்லாரும் கண்கள் குளமாக நின்றனர்""

    அன்று.. தேனம்பாக்கத்தில் வெகு சிலபேர் மட்டுமே இருந்தனர். பெரியவா... கிணற்றின் பக்கத்திலிருந்து தரிசனம் கொடுத்துக்கொண்டிருந்தார்.சின்ன குயில்களின் கானமும், காக்கைகளின் எசப்பாட்டும் தவிர வேறு சத்தமில்லா நிசப்தம்.

    "கமலேச சோதரி கமலாக்ஷி நாராயணி...." என்று பாடியவர், அடுத்த வரி மறந்து சற்று தடுமாறினார்...உடனே, "நாத பிந்து கலா ஸ்வரூபிணி..காத்யாயனி.."என்று, மழலையின் குரல் எடுத்துக்கொடுத்தது.. கண்ணில் நீர் பொங்க, அந்தப்பெண்மணி, கைகளாலேயே அந்த குழந்தையின் கன்னத்தை வருடி, முத்தமிட்டு, பாடலை பாடி முடித்தார்.

    "யாரோட குழந்தை அது..."- பெரியவா உள்ளிருந்தபடியே கேட்டார்.

    "என்னோட பையன் தான்.. பெரிவா..." - கையில் குழந்தையை வைத்திருந்தவர், சற்று தூக்கி காண்பித்தார்..

    "உனக்கு, எப்படி இந்த பாட்டு தெரியும்?..- குழந்தையை கேட்டார்.

    "எங்க அம்மா தினமும் பாடுவாளே...."

    "சந்தோஷம்.. " - ஒரு ஆப்பிளை எடுத்து, குழந்தைக்கு ப்ரசாதமாக கொடுத்தார்.

    குழந்தையை வைத்திருந்தவருக்கு, உலகமே தனக்கு கிடைத்த ஒரு சந்தோஷம்..

    அப்பொழுது, ஒரு வயதான தம்பதி, கையில் ஒரு பழ தட்டுடனும், கண்களில் மிகுந்த ஏக்கத்துடனும், பெரியவாளை நெடுஞ்சாண்கிடையாக நமஸ்கரித்தார்கள்..

    "என்ன வேண்டும்.."- கண்களாலேயே கேட்டது, பரப்ரம்மம்.

    "பொண்ணுக்கு நிச்சயம் பண்ணியிருக்கோம். சொந்த மாமாவையே, கல்யாணம் செய்து வைக்கிறோம்."

    "உறவு விட்டு போய்ட கூடாதுன்னா?..."

    "அது மட்டும் இல்ல.. பெரிவா., வேற இடத்துல செஞ்சு வெக்க வசதியும் இல்ல..."

    "சரி... என்ன வேணுமாம்?.. - கேளுடா.

    "கல்யாணம்னு செஞ்சு வெக்க அடிப்படை தேவைகளுக்கு கூட பணம் இல்ல.. பெரியவா தான் ஏதாவது வழி காட்டணும்." - கண்ணீர் மல்க நின்றனர் அந்த தம்பதியர்.

    சற்று நேரம் அங்கு மிகப்பெரும் மௌனம்..."அவாள, அந்த மரத்தடில போய் கொஞ்ச நேரம் உக்கார சொல்லு."

    தம்பதியர், பெரிவாளுக்கு நமஸ்காரம் செய்து விட்டு, அழுது கொண்டே, மரத்தடிக்கு சென்று அமர்ந்து கொண்டனர்.

    அதுவரை, இதை பார்த்துக் கொண்டிருந்தவர்களுக்கு, என்ன நடக்கும் என்று தெரிந்து கொள்ள ஆவல். குறிப்பாக, கையில் குழந்தையை வைத்திருந்த அந்த பெண்ணுக்கும், பாடியவருக்கும்.

    ப்ரசாதம் வாங்கிக்கொண்டு, வீடு திரும்ப நினைத்தவர்கள், அங்கேயே நின்றுவிட்டனர்..

    சரியாக, பதினைந்து நிமிடம் சென்றிருக்கும்.. ஒரு கார் வந்து நிற்கும் சத்தம். அதிலிருந்து, ஒரு மார்வாடி குடும்பம் இறங்கியது..

    கையில், மிக பெரிய தட்டு, அதில் ஒரு துணியில் மூடி எதையோ கொண்டு வந்தனர்.

    உத்தரவு கிடைத்தவுடன், ஓடிவந்தார்கள் அந்த தம்பதியர்.

    "இதை அப்படியே அவாள எடுத்துக்க சொல்லு..." - உத்தரவிட்டார்

    கொண்டுவந்தவர், பெற்றுக்கொண்டவர், இதை கண்டவர் என, எல்லாரும் கண்கள் குளமாக நின்றனர்.

    Experiences with Maha Periyava: The Sethji and His Terminal Illness

    This incident happened about 35 years ago. Paramacharya was staying in Chennai for a few months, blessing people and giving discourses. From Chennai, he continued his yatra out of the city and stayed for a few days in a brick tiles manufacturing factory at Noombal on the Poonamallee high road past the city border.

    I went to have a darshan of Paramacharya one evening, accompanied by a Sethji from Calcutta who was a wealthy philanthropist. In the usual way I prostrated to the Sage, my eight limbs touching the ground. Sethji also prostrated in a similar manner. I joined my palms and stood meekly.

    Looking at us once and raising His head, Paramacharya asked, "You told me earlier once…was it about this man?" He was matchless in His powers of estimation and retention. I agreed to His words and said with humility, "This man was pestering me for a long time to take him for darshan, which is the reason I brought him here."

    I need to tell you a few things about this man. This Sethji is very pious. He used to come daily to my upanyasas on Mahabharata and Ramayana, which I held in Calcutta. Since I was giving explanations in Hindi also, a number of North Indians used to come to my discourses.

    Before I started my discourse, I would always talk about the greatness of Sri Kanchi Paramacharya for some time, after the initial prayers. My speech would be about Acharya's immense knowledge, power, tapo shakti, and His greatness with examples that highlighted them. Only then, the actual discourse would commence. This is a principle I have been following for a long time.

    Though God has given the Sethji all sorts of fortunes, He had also left him with a large deficiency. It was the misfortune of not being able to take food through the mouth as his gullet was not functioning. His regular food was supplied to his digestive system artificially through a hole in the stomach. With this intense suffering he was living his days.

    There was no treatment that he did not take to get this ailment rectified. He had met all the world experts in the field of medicine. There was no count to his temple darshans, prayers and the efforts using mantra and tantra. Still there was no cure in sight. Since he had heard about the greatness of Paramacharya from my daily discourses, he desired to have a darshan of the Sage and check if at last that would cure his malady.

    During a recess in the discourse, he held on to it firmly that he and I should go to Chennai and have a darshan of Paramacharya.

    I was apprehensive about taking him without the prior consent of Paramacharya. I told him that I would go to Chennai and get Acharya's consent and then take him. He immediately got me a plane ticket to Chennai.

    On reaching Chennai, I informed Paramacharya about this Sethji at an opportune time and asked for His consent to bring the man for darshan. Though he discussed with me about the satkarya (good deeds) in Calcutta, He did not say anything about my request. When I reminded Him again after sometime, He curtly said, "Not now". Since Sethji might be shocked at Paramacharya's reply and lose hope in the ultimate cure, I simply told him that I would take him when I left Calcutta after my discourses.

    In a way it was a mistake to have brought him, though I did it as a service. All the good and bad that happen in our life are due to our punya and paapa spread over many births. Man is bound to face them. The sins can be reduced only by suffering their effects. If there is continuous suffering, it only shows the quantum of accumulated sins. If the sufferings are faced with faith in God, their effects will be felt less, and good things would reach us when the sins are exhausted. With His foresight, Paramacharya is clear giving such explanations for the good and bad that we face in our life.

    One of the reasons that He would not encourage meeting such sinful people who suffer now is that they would simply look for pariharas without realising that they have to suffer for their sins.
    I stayed a little distance away from Him and kept on reminding him about giving darshan to Sethji. He did not give a positive reply. It was getting late at night. I approached Him with an intention of taking leave and coming the next morning.

    He sensed my thought and said, "Nothing can be done in his matter! Take him away. Ask him to be devoted to God, do good deeds and God will save him!"

    I became a little bold and said, "He is doing such good things for years together now. Is there no parihara at all? Everything should have a parihara! Don't our Dharma Shastras provide vimochanas for curses and sins? In God's creation, should there not be a parihara for everything? You should kindly give him your anugraha." I argued strongly in favour of the Sethji.

    Paramacharya listened to me carefully, kept silent for some time and then asked me to come near Him with the words, "If that is so, come nearer."

    "Will he do what I ordain for him?"

    "He will do it; I shall ask him to do it."

    "If he doesn't do it?"

    "If he does it, let him get prosperity; or else let him suffer."

    "It would require a large amount of money for what I ordain for him. Can he make it?"

    "He is a millionaire. He would even spend all his wealth to get well."

    "He should publish in Sanskrit the eighteen Puranas in our Veda Shastras in separate volumes on
    good paper in good print and distribute the volume sets free to eligible Vedic Pundits. Will he do this? Can he do this?"

    "He can. I shall ask him to do it."

    "You know the eighteen Puranas? Give me their names."

    I told him the names in this order:
    1. Sri Matsya Purana
    2. Markandeya Purana
    3. Bhavishya Purana
    4. Bhagavata Purana
    5. Brahmanda Purana
    6. Brahma Vaivarta Purana
    7. Brahma Purana,
    8. Vamana Purana
    9. Varaha Purana
    10. Vishnu Purana
    11. Vayu Purana
    12. Agni Purana
    13. Naradiya Purana
    14. Padma Purana
    15. Linga Purana
    16. Garuda Purana
    17. Kurma Purana
    18. Skanda Purana

    I was happy that my act had a happy ending.

    I called Sethji and told him the matter. He was immensely happy and said, "Yes, I would do this", as he prostrated to the lotus feet of Paramacharya, shedding tears. Paramacharya blessed him profusely and asked his assistants to give him prasada.

    As soon he reached his place of domicile, Sethji started this task as the first thing. He allotted an entire floor of his large building as office for this venture. He called Vedic Pundits and scriptural experts from many states, consulted them, and printed the Puranas in good print on high quality paper in large-sized books, spending a fortune on the task, and distributed them free to eligible Vedic Pundits as ordained by Paramacharya. The word 'prem' (love) was mentioned in the part of the book that mentioned its price.

    Without checking if his disease was lessening and without even worrying about if it would reduce, or feeling skeptical about it, he was totally and fiercely engaged in the publication of the Puranas as ordained by Paramacharya. Seventeen Puranas came out as books, but there was no ease in his condition! Even during the days of this Dharmic activity, he took food only through a hole in his stomach.

    As the work on the eighteenth Purana, the 'Skanda Purana' started, Sethji had suddenly started eating with his mouth as everyone did! His tongue got back its tasting capabilities! He got the bhagyam of his birth that was not in sight all these days. The cruel disease that gave him untold suffering every day and minute was at last cured and gone with Paramacharya's anugraha.
    When I got the news, I met Paramacharya and told him, "Acharya's Shakti is the Shakti! Sethji has come alive due to the boon, the anugraha you gave him! Only Paramacharya's anugraha saved him, after he resorted to all kinds of measures. Only you are the God!" I stood before him, drowned in gratitude, shedding tears.

    The words that Maha Shakti spoke at that time gave me a darshan of him as the God seen with my own eyes (Kankanda Deivam).

    "It is the Shakti of Dharma Shastras of our country that has saved him, is it not?" he said. Neither I nor has anyone ever heard Him declare at any stage that it was His or was done by Him. After knowing about this miraculous incident, the experts from the Western countries started crowding to seek His darshan.

    This incident was narrated by Mukkur Srinivasa Varadacharyar Swamigal, the man responsible for Ashtalakshmi Temple in Chennai.

    Experiences with Maha Periyava: Divine Foresight – Ramanatha, You are very lucky!!

    This incident happened several years ago. A Vedic Pundit, Ramanatha Ganapadigal who hailed from Karur was living in Srirangam. His wife’s name was Dharmambal. Their only daughter was Kamakshi. Though the Pundit was a master in Vedas, he did not pursue Vaideegam (performing Vedic rituals) for his livelihood but used to do “Upanyasam” (spiritual discourses) for a living with whatever remuneration he received for his discourses. The family members were staunch devotees of Sri Maha Periyava.

    Their daughter’s marriage was fixed suddenly and the groom was a teacher in a nearby village. His wife Dharmambal asked her husband, “Our daughter’s marriage has been fixed. How much savings have we got?” Ganapadigal replied, “Do you not know that I have managed to save about five thousand rupees and with that we can perform the marriage in a simple manner”.

    Dharmambal was furious, “How we can conduct the marriage with this amount? We need to buy jewellery, new clothes and vessels. There are catering and other expenses and we need at least fifteen thousand rupees more”.

    Ganapadigal just looked at her and Dharmambal said, “Don’t worry. I have a suggestion. Please buy some fruits, take the marriage invitation and go to Kancheepuram and do namaskarams to Sri Maha Periyava and tell him that our daughter’s marriage has been fixed. Explain our situation and ask His help for arranging fifteen thousand rupees. He will definitely help us”. However Ganapadigal did not take up her idea and replied “How is it possible to ask our Jagadguru for ‘dhanam’ (money) when we should only ask for ‘jnanam’ (knowledge). However Dharmambal argued and convinced her husband and made him travel to Kancheepuram the next day.

    On that day there was a heavy crowd in the Kanchi Mutt to have darshan of Sri Maha Periyava. Ramanatha Ganapadigal was standing in the queue with a bamboo plate in which he had kept fruits and the marriage invitation. All the people standing in the queue were carrying fruits in the bamboo plate in their hands.

    When the Ganapadigal reached the place where Periyava was sitting, one of the assistants grabbed his plate and kept the plate along with the other plates.

    Ganapadigal didn’t expect this. “Sir I have kept the marriage invitation on that plate. I have to offer that to Periyava to seek His blessings. Please get me that” he was pleading desperately but it did not fall on anybody’s ears.

    Suddenly there was a voice “Oh! Is it Karur Ramanatha Ganapadigal? Please come. Is everyone fine at Srirangam? Are your religious discourses going on well?” The voice came from none other than Sri Maha Periyava Himself. He then enquired about his family’s details and the discussion was going on. Ganapadigal did not know how to convey the issue of his financial needs. Somehow he managed to open the topic, “Dharmambal told me to visit you and get blessings for the marriage of our daughter….” Before he could finish, Periyava told him, “My blessings are there in full and …. I have one assignment for you. Can you do it for me?”

    Ganapadigal enthusiastically asked what the assignment was. Immediately Periyava said, “What other assignment am I going to give you? To do discourse (upanyasam) only. There is an Agraharam in Tirunelveli near Kadaianallur in a miserable condition. Cows there die without any reason. They have sought Prasanam (an astrological practice followed in Kerala) with a Kerala Nambhoodhri and he has suggested them to do a Bhagavatha Saptaha upanyasam in the Perumal temple. Two days back the village Perumal temple priest (Bhattachariar) came here. He conveyed the matter and said “Swami only you have to arrange to send an upanyasakar for the Bhagvatha Upanyasam” and has placed the responsibility on me. You have to go there for my sake and do the needful. All other details are with Sri Matham’s Manager, you can ask him. Get the money from Sri Matham for your expenses. Tonight you board the train at Villupuram. They will take care of your remuneration (sambhavanai). Go, go, have food and take rest” said Swamigal and started talking to another devotee.


    That night Ganapadigal boarded the train at Villupuram and arrived at Tirunelveli junction the next day afternoon. The Perumal temple priest (bhattar) came to the station to receive Ganapadigal. He was put up at the house of the priest and to his surprise nobody came to meet him. He consoled himself thinking that he could meet people at the time of the discourse. However, when he commenced his discourse i.e. “Bhagavatha Saptaham” in the evening, the temple priest, the temple security guard and Lord Varadaraja Perumal were the only attendees. When he enquired, he was told that the entire village got dispersed over an issue as to who should become the Trustee of the temple and until that issue was resolved, everyone in the village had decided not to enter the temple.

    However Ramanatha Ganapadigal sincerely carried out his Saptaham in front of the Lord for the next seven days while it was attended by the temple priest and the security guard. On the last day the priest told him that the discourse was excellent and it was priceless however due to poor response, he gave the “Sambhavana” (fees for rendering the discourse) of sum of thirty rupees, the only amount which was available with the priest at that point in time. The watchman kept some change he had on the plate.

    Bhattar also got Ganapadigal the train ticket for his return journey. Ganapadigal reached Kancheepuram via Villupuram the next day and reached Kanchi Mutt.

    Next day afternoon after the routines were over he met Sri Maha Periyava. Maha Periyava then enquired about his trip to Kadayanallur and asked how the discourse went. “Come Ramanatha, Are you coming only now after the discourse? Very good. Was there a good gathering for the upanyasam? Did a lot of people from far off come?” asked Swamigal happily.

    Ganapadigal’s eyes were filled with tears. In a broken voice he said, “No, Periyava, no such crowd came. In that village, there was some problem between the two groups, Periyava. So, nobody came to the temple for the last seven days”, and felt very sad.

    “Ok, then how many people came for the discourse?”

    “Only two of them, Periyava. That is what makes me sad”, said the Ganapadigal.

    Immediately Periyava said, “Don’t be sad for this. Who were the two lucky people? Tell me, I want to hear”.

    “Nobody from outside Periyava. One person was the bhattar. The other was the temple watchman”. Before he could finish, Swamigal started laughing loudly.

    “Ramanatha, you are very lucky. Only Arjuna was there to hear the Geetopadesam (Bhagavad Gita) narrated by Lord Krishna from the chariot. Look at you. Two people have listened. You are luckier than Sri Krishna”, told Periyava. On hearing this, Ganapadigal started laughing.

    “That means, you would not have got a good remuneration”, asked Swamigal.

    “The bhattar gave thirty rupees, watchman gave two rupees and twenty-five paise, together I got, thirty-two rupees and twenty-five paise”, told the Ganapadigal.

    “Ramanatha, you went there just because I told you to go. Should do a lot for your expertise in Vedas. This time, the situation is like this”, said Swamigal and called the assistant. He told the assistant to present him with a shawl and give one thousand rupees with a plate of fruits.

    “Take this and leave happily. You and your family will do well”, said Swamigal.

    With tears rolling, he stood up after doing namaskaram to Periyava. Only then did the Ganapadigal remember why he came to visit Swamigal. “Ä prayer to Periyava ... Daughter’s wedding has to happen well...for that... for that “while Ganapadigal was hesitating “My full blessings are there, Lord Chandramouleeswara will conduct the marriage in a grand manner!
    Now take care, go to your town” the Acharya bid him good bye.

    Without fifteen thousand rupees and empty handed, fearing how the reception would be from his wife, Ramanatha Ganapadigal entered his house.

    “Please wait, please wait there. I am coming” the enthusiastic voice of his wife Dharmambal came from inside the house.

    She came to entrance of the house and gave water to her husband to wash his legs. She took arathi for him and led him inside the house. She gave him coffee and showed extraordinary hospitality. “Come here and see our pooja room” she led Ganapadigal to the Pooja room.
    Ganapadigal went into the Pooja room. There he saw in front of the deity a big bamboo plate with a variety of fruits, saree, dhoti (veshti), two mangalasutras (thirumangalyam), turmeric, kumkum, flowers along with a bundle of currency.

    “Dharmu all these ...” before he could finish “somebody from Sri Matham came saying Periyava from Kanchipuram wanted to give this and kept it here. I asked why? They said it is for your daughter’s marriage. Periyava wanted us to reach these to you” finished his wife.

    Now also tears rolled down from Ganapadigal’s eyes. “Dharmu what a mercy Periyava has shown. I didn’t open my mouth and ask him anything. Still, that God has sent all these things!!” He said emotionally and asked “Did you count the currency in the bundle?” “No. I did not” said his wife.
    Ganapadigal sat down and finished counting.

    Fifteen thousand rupees!!

    Thinking of that Seer’s compassion, Ramanatha Ganapadigal started crying out loudly!

    Happy Gokulashtami!!!

    Experiences with Maha Periyava: "Swamigal gently put His Lotus Feet on Krishna's feet!!!"


    "One lady used to say, "He is like Lord Krishna and we are always swarming Him like those calves, enjoying His presence".


    One day it was Gokulashtami. Kanchi MahaSwamigal had gone to the backyard for His morning duties at 4am.

    His Kainkaryam Sri Srikantan told me, "Mami, I will open the door secretly for you. You should put the necessary kolams and Kutty Krishna's feet on the floor as quickly as possibly and run from here, Ok?"
    I said Ok!


    He said, "If you want, I will close the backyard door. Let me know the moment you are finished with the kolams and then I will open it again for Him".


    He was talking like as if the Sarveshwaran will not know about our plans!


    I put the kolams; the Kutty Krishna's feet came out so beautifully that day. I drew the Feet from the backyard door right up to the room where He does the poojas and also near the kitchen. And then quickly I came out, afraid that Srikantan might admonish me for taking so much time!


    I stood behind a window and got ready to watch the Celestial event unfold. Swamigal opened the door. On seeing the tiny Krishna feet kolams, He lifted His vastram and gently put His Lotus Feet on Krishna's feet, one by one, and came walking to His room sweetly, all the way He was looking at me through the window! He walked as if He was Lord Krishna Himself!!!


    That Sarveshwaran, what Kindness!


    Even today, I am reminded of That day on all Krishna Jayanthi days!"

    Experiences with Maha Periyava: The wrestler’s mystery!!!

    A wrestler whose strength it was said was immeasurable, came to Kanchipuram. If a fistful of sesame seeds were given to him, he could crush it to oil quite casually. He had also won a number of competitions in boxing and martial arts. So he had a horde of followers that admired him. His intention was to get a prize from Periyava. He was ready to exhibit his prowess in front of Periyava and was all set to wrestle with any one Periyava deputed as his opponent.

    A youngster who visited SriMatham now and then and served there—let us call him Manakkal Krishna Sastri—was a hefty, well-built man. Periyava sent for Krishna Sastri.

    “Krishna, stand near the entrance…for an hour. You must not move…what do you say?”

    “As commanded…”

    Although no one including Krishna Sastri understood this strange command, he stood near the entrance of SriMatham. He came in after an hour. Later when Periyava came out after performing puja, Krishna Sastri took leave of Periyava formally and left for Manakkal. A close relative of the wrestler who lived in Kanchipuram came for darshan that night. He asked an attendant, “Of course one does find vaidiks and attendants in the Matham. But has the Matham now appointed a wrestler also?”

    “What a strange question! Why should the Matham patronise wrestlers?”

    “A famous wrestler who was on a visit to this town came to the Matham at about ten this morning.

    Taken aback by the presence of a powerful wrestler at the front door, he came back without entering the premises for darshan. I am now returning after seeing him off to Chennai.”

    The attendants had a hearty laugh. ‘So this was why Periyava parked Manakkal Sastri at the front door! The wrestler was frightened by seeing him there.’

    How did Periyava know that a wrestler was coming to the Matham with the intention of challenging the attendants to wrestle with him? Well, that remains a riddle.

    Experiences with Maha Periyava: Oh! He is the merciful Almighty! He can do anything!

    Sri Chandramouli was one of Sri Periyava’s ardent devotees. His uncle was a captain in the Army. Though he was God-fearing, he did not have much bhakti towards Sri Periyava.

    His son-in-law was working in Vellore and suddenly he was diagnosed with some problem in his kidney. All the doctors who had checked him in Vellore said that they could not do anything. That night, the captain’s daughter felt emotionally upset thinking about her husband’s situation. She had a unique dream that night. Sri Periyava came in her dreams and asked, “Can you give me your thirumangalyam (auspicious necklace/string a married woman wears to denote her marital status)?”

    As soon as it dawned, even though she could not find a proper yellow thread, she found a normal thread, knotted a manjal (turmeric) piece on it and tied that around her neck. She also removed the thirumangalyam that was already wearing and kept it to be given to Sri Periyava.

    Even though Sri Periyava came only in her dreams, this act proved that she believed that it was true and also showed her bhakti towards Sri Periyava.

    When Sri Chandramouli Mama was informed about this, he asked them to come immediately for Sri
    Periyava’s darshan. But, they got the opportunity only to have His darshan only after fifteen days.

    “Has someone come for darshan” asked Sri Periyava, when they went and stood there.

    “Sri Periyava need not strain Himself…can give darshan when Sri Periyava comes out”, Sri Chandramouli Mama was saying. But Sri Periyava did not even listen to him and ordered him to bring them inside.

    “Have you brought that…give it to me” asked Sri Periyava in the same manner as He had asked in her dreams. He accepted that mangalyam and asked Sri Balu Mama to bring a fruit. When Sri Balu Mama gave an apple to Sri Periyava. Sri Periyava pierced the fruit with His Holy Hands and kept looking keenly at captain’s son-in-law. After this Sri Periyava gave that fruit to them and blessed him saying, “You don’t have any problem. You can go.”

    After they reached Vellore, they went for the medical check-up and the kidney specialists were totally surprised with the results. To their astonishment, both the kidneys were functioning very well. They realised that only a supernatural power could have resolved this and asked them what had happened. When these folks explained they immediately said, “Oh! He is God. He can do anything!”

    If we perform proper bhakti to Sri Periyava, who is so simple and does not showcase any of His supernatural powers, it is true that our devotion will yield us all prosperity and wealth.
    Grace will continue to flow.

    ""பெரியவாள், இந்த தனவந்தருக்கு மட்டும் குங்குமம் கொடுத்து ஆசீர்வதிக்கிறாரே? பரவாயில்லைதனவந்தர் அதிர்ஷ்டசாலிதான்""

    கும்பகோணத்துக்கு அருகில்உள்ளது
    திப்பிராஜபுரம். அழகிய இந்த கிராமத்தின் சிறப்பு அக்ரஹாரம். வேதபாடசாலையும் அமைந்துள்ள இந்த கிராமத்தில், வேதவிற்பன்னர்கள் மற்றும் சாஸ்திரபண்டிதர்கள்ஆகியோர்வாழ்ந்தனர்.


    கட்டுக்குடுமியும்கழுத்தில்ருத்திராட்சமுமாக மாணவச்சிறுவர்கள் பலர் இங்கும் அங்குமாகஓடியாடி விளையாடுவதேஅத்தனைஅழகு! அதுமட்டுமா? அக்ரஹார வீட்டுவாசல்களில்காலைமாலைஇரண்டுவேளையும் காவிக்கோலங்கள் நிறைந்திருக்கும். அக்ரஹாரப்பெண்கள், தீபமேற்றி சுலோகங்களைப்பாடுவர்.


    இதேபோல்திருவிசநல்லூர்
    , திருவிடைமருதூர், கோவிந்தபுரம்ஆகியவையும் அழகு தவழும் கிராமங்கள். காஞ்சிமகாபெரியவாள்இந்தகிராமங்களைபெரிதும்நேசித்தார்.


    ஒருமுறை
    , திபபிராஜபுரத்தில்முகாமிட்டிருந்தார்பெரியவாள். இந்தகிராமத்துமக்கள், மகாபெரியவாளிடம்மிகுந்தபக்திவைத்திருந்தனர். ஒருநாள்… ‘ஜயஜயசங்கரஹரஹரசங்கரஎனும்கோஷம்முழங்க, மேனாவில் (பல்லக்கு) வீதியுலாவந்தார்காஞ்சிபெரியவாள். வழிநெடுகவாழைமரமும்மாவிலைத்தோரணங்களும்கட்டப்பட்டிருந்தன. வீடுகள்தோறும்வாயிலில்கோலமிட்டு, தீபமேற்றிவைத்திருந்தனர்.


    ஒவ்வொருவீட்டுவாசலிலும்
    மேனாநின்றது. அந்தணர்கள்வேதமந்திரங்களைமுழங்கினர்; பூர்ணகும்பத்தைத்தொட்டுஆசிர்வதித்தார்பெரியவாள். அனைவரும்அவரைநமஸ்கரித்தனர்.


    மெள்ளநகர்ந்துகொண்டிருந்தது
    மேனா. இந்தநிலையில்தனவந்தர்ஒருவர், தனதுவீட்டில்பரபரப்பும்பதட்டமுமாகஇருந்தார். ‘பெரியவாளைதரிசிக்கவேண்டும்என்றுஎண்ணி, பூர்ணகும்பத்துக்காகபெட்டிக்குள்வைத்திருந்தவெள்ளிச்சொம்பைஎடுத்துக்கையில்வைத்துக்கொண்டாலும்ஊரேகூடியிருக்கும்இந்தவேளையில்வாசலுக்குவந்துபெரியவாளைதரிசிக்கவேண்டுமா?’ என்றுசிந்தித்தபடிதவித்துமருகினார்.


    அவரதுவீட்டுவாசலின்
    முன்நின்றதுமேனா. வீட்டுக்குள்இருந்து தயக்கத்துடன்எட்டிப்பார்த்ததனவந்தரைப்பார்த்து, ‘வாஇங்கே…’ என்பதுபோல்சைகைகாட்டினார்பெரியவாள்!


    பதறிப்போனதனவந்தர்
    , கையில்வைத்திருந்தவெள்ளிச்சொம்புடன், ஓடிவந்தார். பெரியவாளைநெருங்கிபவ்யமாகநின்றார். அவரின்கையிலிருந்தசொம்பைவெடுக்கெனபிடுங்கினார்பெரியவாள்.


    தனவந்தருக்குத்தூக்கிவாரிப்போட்டது
    . ‘இந்தசொம்பைஅலம்பவோ, தீர்த்தம் (தண்ணீர்) நிரப்பவோஇல்லையே…’ எனும்குற்றஉணர்ச்சியில்கூனிக்குறுகிதலைகவிழ்ந்துநின்றார்தனவந்தர்.


    பல்லக்கில்வைத்திருந்தகுங்குமப்

    சிலநிமிடங்களுக்குப்பிறகுதன்னைஆசுவாசப்படுத்திக்கொண்டதனவந்தர், ‘குருமகாதெய்வமே…’ என்றுபேசமுற்பட்டார். ஆனால், மெல்லிய

    ஊர்மக்களுக்குஆச்சரியம்!

    அடபக்திசிரத்தையுடன்எல்லோரும் பூரணகும்பம்அளித்தபோது, அவற்றைத்தொட்டுமட்டுமேஆசீர்வதித்தபெரியவாள், இந்ததனவந்தருக்குமட்டும்குங்குமம்கொடுத்துஆசீர்வதிக்கிறாரே? பரவாயில்லைதனவந்தர்அதிர்ஷ்டசாலிதான்என்றுபேசிக்கொண்டனர்.


    உண்மைதான்
    ! சீரும்சிறப்புமாகவாழ்ந்ததனவந்தர், சமீபத்தில்நொடித்துப்போய்விடஇதையடுத்துவெளியேவருவதும்இல்லை; எவரையும்சந்திப்பதையும்தவிர்த்துவந்தார். அவமானத்தால்வீட்டிலேயேஅடைபட்டுக்கிடந்தார். அதனால்தான்பெரியவாள்வீதியுலாவந்தபோதும்வெளியேவரதயங்கினார்தனவந்தர்.


    இதைஉணராமலாஇருப்பார்
    பெரியவாள்? அந்ததனவந்தர்வாழ்ந்துகெட்டவர்என்பதைஅறிந்தவர், வீதியுலாவின்போதுஅவரைஅழைத்து, அவர்கையில்இருந்தசொம்பில்குங்குமத்தையும்வழங்கிஅருள்புரிந்தார்.


    சிலமாதங்களில்
    தனவந்தரின்குடும்பம்மெள்ளமுன்னேறியது. படிப்படியாகசெல்வம்சேரமீண்டும்தழைத்தோங்கியதுதனவந்தரின்குடும்பம். பழையநிலையைவிடஇன்னும்பலபடிமுன்னேறினார்!



    இதையறிந்ததிப்பிராஜபுரம்மக்களுக்கு
    பெரியவாள்மீதுஇருந்தபக்தியும்அன்பும்பலமடங்குஅதிகரித்தது
