    “I was in Malaya and Singapore for some time and I picked up the habit there” the man said.

    I blessed the couple and returned to the camp.

    It so happened, from that day onwards, the man earnings dwindled to nothing at all. He never handled anything less than five thousand or ten thousand in real estate business, but now he could not get a quarter of an anna, till his passing. Periyava did this and the man was without a rupee. The lady was not educated either and she suffered a great deal, educating and bringing up the children in such penury. They had no amenities like telephone at home. Their only security was the house in T.Nagar. Her husband mortgaged the house to a Muslim gentleman and borrowed money on it and in course of time the loan accumulated to thirty thousand rupees.

    This money-lender had three wives and four sons. One day when the lady’s husband was away and when she was alone at home, the money-lender barged into the house with his sons and some henchmen and began to wind up the place, dumping the brass utensils into sacks and shifting everything outside, as preliminary to taking possession of the house. Not knowing what to do, the lady stepped out and stood on the road. An unknown gentleman, quite advanced in years came up to her and said, “I live in the same road, but I have never seen you outside your house. What is it, my child?” When he learnt of the matter, at once he rushed to the Pondy Bazar police station and in no time two vans full of policemen arrived there. The money-lender was by then in the pūja room and about to take Periyava’s pādukas and toss them out when a policeman’s cane came down on his back, even as he put his hands upon them. The men were rounded up and booked for unlawful entry and harassment of the lady, and were placed under lock-up without an option to be bailed out. The money-lender’s family was not permitted to meet him and his sons either.

    Sri Arul, who was then Inspector General of Police, was a very strict man and fearless of any kind of clout. He was furious. “You speak of right conduct in your religion. Was this the right thing to do? If you were demanding repayment, or claiming possession of the house, go about it legally! You can’t take the law into your hands and break into a house in broad daylight when a lady is alone and attempt to take over. Taking possession of a property is the duty of the bailiff after proper legal procedure! Did you have a warrant or any official paper to allow your entry into the house? Where was the mercy that you speak of so highly in your religion? If that lady herself came here and requested your release I will let you out, not otherwise!

    The offender was a very wealthy man. His wives pleaded with the IG of police, but for four days they were in lock-up, with nothing but the gruel given there to sustain them. Finally the wives went to the lady herself and pleaded with her to speak to the chief of the Police. “You are like a mother to us. Our children have not eaten these past four days. You must be gracious! You need not repay our debts, Mother!”

    “I know nothing of these matters. I find no fault with your men. We owe them money, it is true. It was the way they went about the whole thing that was so hurting!” said the lady but anyway went along and helped to bail them out. The matter went to court and all this went on for some time. The lady‟s husband got nothing by way of earnings. Periyava did that for he had asked the lady, “Isn’t it because he has money that he drinks?”

    When Periyava’s camp was in Hagari, one day there was a phone call for me. Srikantan was not there, having gone out on an errand. So I told Vedapuri to manage till I got back, warning him not to disturb Periyava with the news that I had gone out to attend to a phone-call. Periyava being what he is seems to have told Vedapuri, “Call Balu, I need a drink of water!” He would not take it from Vedapuri. He repeated his instruction when I was not called and then Vedapuri in his characteristic fashion proclaimed, “There was a phone-call and he has gone out to take it!”

    I had been away for hardly a few minutes and no sooner did he see me Periyava said, “You had a phone-call, my boy” and before I could speak a word in reply, he continued, “So what did that lady say?”
    Their house in T.Nagar was coming up for auction in a day’s time.

    So I conveyed the news to Periyava. “They are unable to pay the money and the house is to be auctioned the day after tomorrow.”

    “What are we to do? Neither you nor I have money! Nor can we ask anyone here. I am an ascetic who does not ask for money. Call the lawyer Nagarajaiyer!”

    Nagarajaiyer had come from Madras for darśan. The gentleman presented himself to Periyava.
    “Balu has something to say.”

    I explained everything to Nagarajaiyer.

    “That is not possible. How can that be done? May be five or ten thousand rupees could be paid and we could ask for more time, that’s all. But stay order, not possible!”

    “Chee . . . Go away, go away. Go away!” Periyava’s words were repeated three times. “Have you come here to enlighten me? If someone asks for help, you simply act upon the matter! What kind of a lawyer are you?”

    “Why is Periyava angry with me?”

    The gentleman left soon after, not offering to help in anyway.

    That day passed and the next and then it was Saturday. I was called on the phone. As before I requested Vedapuri to wait upon Periyava and also suggested that he need not disturb Periyava with this information. Periyava was resting. It was about one o’clock in the afternoon. Getting up, Periyava has asked for me, in his characteristically mischievous fashion, “Fetch Balu!”

    “Balu has been called on the phone. He told me not to tell Periyava, but I have. So Periyava must tell Balu that I did!

    “You have told me and so I am going to tell Balu that you did.”

    “Periyava must not!”

    “Balu told you not to tell me, but you have. So I must tell him that you did!

    ”It was going on like this and the two were still in the midst of a quarrel when I came back. The lady told me over the phone, “Buy plenty of sugar candy, raisins and fruits, offer it to Periyava along with prostrations on my behalf and tell Periyava, “The house is ready to be auctioned and that his devotee is on the streets without a way for a meal.”

    ‟As soon as I presented myself, Periyava said, “What is it? Am I being scolded harshly by that lady? What does she say?”

    I was not explicit because it was not polite, so I simply said, “She expressed distress” and left it at that, though I apprised Periyava of the impending auction.

    “Wait a moment! What day is it? Saturday, isn’t it? The auction cannot be valid if it is done today. There is a certain procedure to be followed. Both parties must present themselves at the Registration Department and sign there with four witnesses in support of their mutual consent. Today the Registration office is closed. Tomorrow is Sunday. That means nothing can be done till Monday. On Monday morning, as the first case this must be registered in court, by seven o’ clock. A sum of seventy five thousand must be pledged to retrieve the house. It is worth a crore of rupees, much more than the bidding in the auction. That is another point. Call Ramanujam over the telephone and tell him to do the needful!”

    Ramanujam was an Iyengar. I called him over the phone and spoke to him.

    “Why, Balu! I am a seasoned lawyer and I go to court every day. I was not aware of these subtleties. In fact I was wondering how to tackle this situation. Which Law College did Periyava go to and did he get a B. L. degree? How well he has brought it under control!” Ramanujam broke down and wept over the phone.
    Ramanujam went to court on Monday and registering his plaint, disproved the auction done on Saturday citing legal grounds and also because the house was worth much more than what it got at the bidding. A sum was paid in advance to answer for the debts and he managed to get a stay order on the auction. The house was never auctioned and the family lives there even now. The sons are grown up now and they are well-placed. The pādukas were never disturbed from where the lady had placed them since she took them from Periyava’s feet.

    பெரியவாள் காசி யாத்திரை (1933) செல்லும் வழியில்ஒரு ஆந்திர குக்கிராமம் ஒன்றில்
    முகாமிட்டபோது ஸ்ரீஸி.எஸ்,விக்குப் பொத்துக்கொண்டு வந்து விட்டதாம்.

    "எடுத்துச் செலவழிப்பதற்கு நம் மடத்தில் என்ன கொட்டியா கிடக்கிறது இந்தத்தரித்திரம்பிடித்த ஊரில்இத்தனை யானையையும்,ஒட்டையையும், ஜனங்களையும் கட்டித்தீனி போடுவதென்றால் எப்படி?" என்கிற ரீதியில்பெரியவாள் காதுபடப் பொரிந்து தள்ளி விட்டாராம்.

    பெரியவாள் அவரைக் கூப்பிட்டார். சாந்தமாக " நீ ஏன்பதட்டப்படறே? நாம நல்ல காரியத்தை உத்தேசிச்சுப்பொறப்பட்டிருக்கோம்.நம்ப லக்ஷ்யம் நன்னாயிருந்தா அம்பாள் கை கொடுக்காமப் போவாளா? அவதானே எல்லாருக்கும் படியளக்கிறா? நமக்கும் நிறைய அளப்பா"என்றாராம்.

    மறுநாள், விச்வநாதய்யரால் நம்பவே முடியவில்லை! அந்தக் கிராமத்தில் ஏதாவது திருவிழா நடந்ததா, அல்லது சந்தை கூடிற்றா, அல்லது இப்படி எதுவுமே நடக்காமல் பெரியவாளின் சக்தி மட்டும்தான் வேலை செய்ததா என்று அவருக்குச் சொல்ல தெரியவில்லை. ஆனால் சொல்லத் தெரிந்தது,

    மறுநாள் காலையிலிருந்து அந்த நிர்மாநுஷ்யக் குக்கிராமத்தில் புற்றீசலாகப்பக்தர்கள் பெரியவாளை வழிபட வந்து கொண்டேயிருந்ததுதான்.

    வந்தது மட்டும் இல்லை.அக்காலத்தில் வெள்ளி நாணயம்வழங்கி வந்ததல்லவா? வந்த பக்தர்கள் யாவரும் இப்படி நாணயங்களைக் கொண்டு வந்து கொட்டினார்கள்.

    "நான் மடத்திலே இருந்திருக்கிற இந்த நாற்பது வருஷமா(இதை ஸி.எஸ்,வி.என்னிடம் கூறியது சுமார் பத்து ஆண்டுகளுக்கு முன்பு-கட்டுரை-1960-பின் பாதியில்) அந்த மாதிரி ஒத்தை ஒத்தை ரூபாயா வந்து குன்று மாதிரி குவிஞ்சதேயில்லை!.மடத்து ஜாகையிலே எல்லாத்தையும் சேத்துக் குவிச்சு எண்ணிட்டுப் படியாலே எடுத்து எடுத்துச்சாக்கிலே போட்டுக் கட்டினோம்.

    பெரியவாள்,"அம்பாள்,'படி' அளப்பாள்'னு சொன்னேன்.ஒனக்கு நம்பிக்கைப் படலை. இப்ப நீயே 'படியாலே' அளந்து அளந்து கொட்டறே, பாத்தியா?"-ன்னா!.

    "பெரியவாளுக்குத் தெரியாதது எதுவும் இல்லை. பெரியவா செய்ய முடியாதது எதுவும் இல்லை. இருந்தாலும் 'எங்களைக் கூட வெச்சுண்டு ஆட்டம் போட்டிருக்கா

    Experiences with Maha Periyava: Compassion towards all creatures

    Once when Periyava was camping at a place called Puchamalaikkuppam, the shed where the Mutt's elephant was kept caught fire and the elephant broke its chains and ran away. The next day morning, the employees of the Mutt noticed that the shed where the elephant was kept had burned down fully and the elephant was missing.

    Later it was found that the elephant was near a tank some five miles away and the mahout went there to fetch the elephant but the elephant refused to accompany him despite his best efforts.Then Periyava went there and the elephant slowly got up from the tank and came near Periyava and saluted Him. There were a few burns on the body of the elephant. Periyava patted the elephant with His own hand and ordered proper treatment for burns to be completed.

    Like all human devotees, the Mutt elephant also had abundant faith and Bhakti towards Periyava.

    Sri Maha Periyava was always kind towards animals and they in turn loved Periyava as human beings did. Even animals who have only five senses, unlike men with six senses, were perhaps aware of the greatness of Maha Periyava!

    That is why Periyava is called Paramacharya and Karunamurthy!
