    Experiences with Maha Periyava: Sorry, Uncle!

    There is an organisation in America called the Paul Brunton mission, extolling the British journalist who came to see the Sages here. Brunton had Sri Maha Periyava’s darshan and on his advice went to Ramana Maharishi whose gracious glance he received. Every year the students who were members of this association, would visit Kanchipuram and stay on for 10 or 15 days, immersing themselves in Periyava’s blissful darshan.

    The Group had come as usual one year. One day, Periyava was seated under the Night-flowering jasmine (Pavazhamalli) tree, which used to be in SriMatham in those days and was giving them the darshan. Periyava was sitting with his eyes closed. The American boys were seated around Periyava with their eyes closed in meditation. It was very silent, not a whisper anywhere. The attendants Balu Mama and Vedapuri Mama moved away and came out of SriMatham. A car came to stop there. A middle-aged couple and their three children got down. It was clear from the clothes they wore that the children were thoroughly westernised. They looked at Balu Mama and Vedapuri Mama who were standing there. Old, discoloured dhoties, hair knotted in a tuft, stripes of sacred ash, rudraksha beads around their neck. The ultra-modern kids found them amusing. “Who are these ancients? Some saints around here it seems? Wonder if he too is like this? Dirty people….uncivilised…..fools….. beggars…..who are they?”

    Balu Mama and Vedapuri Mama went away listening to all this. The family of five went in and sat before Periyava. The parents too had never seen Periyava before. They had come shopping for Kanchipuram silk sarees and on their way back thought of dropping in at SriMatham for a short while. But, what were these foreign boys doing around Periyava? Sitting with legs folded, eyes closed and meditating? The Indian children from America began to hold whispered conversation with the American children from America.

    Where have you come from? What's special here? How many days is it since you came here?
    One of the American boys replied enthusiastically. “We came here with just one purpose. Periyava’s darshan. We come just for that. We believe that he is the incarnation of God. Seeing Him invigorates our soul. It will stay on throughout our lives. This is our good fortune.”

    The Indian Children from abroad now saw the light. “Aha! Here are these American boys coming to see the Indian Saint and here are we Indians, knowing nothing about this Saint….What a shame!”
    Periyava broke his silence. He made kind enquiries to the couple and their children. The children watched Periyava without batting an eyelid. Some kind of alchemy took place. The children resolved, “From now on, when we come to India, we will not go back without this Saint’s darshan”.

    When the family came out of SriMatham after receiving prasadam, they spotted Balu Mama and Vedapuri Mama once again. The same old, dirty beggars! But after Periyava’s darshan, they were not dirty any more. The three children said in one voice, “Sorry Uncle!” Beggars before Periyava’s darshan become Uncle after meeting his gracious glance.

    Experiences with Maha Periyava: Give grass, the sins will go away!

    A rich devotee sent a friend in his car to an outstation on an errand of his. Unfortunately, there was an accident on the way causing heavy damage to the car, and the friend passed away immediately.

    There was no end to the grief this caused to the devotee. His remorse that a family lost its head because of him did not let him rest in peace. He donated plenty of cash to the family, but then how would the cash compensate their loss?

    The devotee was in doubt if the Brahmahatya dosha (the sin of killing a Brahman) had befallen him.

    There was no way to share his mental anguish with anyone and seek shastra pramana (scriptural authority) consultations.

    So he came to the supreme authority.

    Sri Maha Periyava patiently listened to everything the devotee told him. Then he said, "The car accident was predestined. There is no bad intention in your thoughts. Somehow, your mind is now burdened with restlessness. Besides, you are also at the receiving end of the society's accusation.

    "To start with, you do Sethu snanam (bathing in the sea waters at Rameswaram). Get up before the sunrise and give grass to a cow that goes in the street, have daily Shiva darshan and do pradakshina in the temple, eat only one meal a day. Do all these things, and the guilt and sin will go away from you."

    Satisfied, the devotee received the prasadam, but stood hesitant.

    Periyava's look asked him "What other doubt have you got?"

    "All the other things can be done, but it does not seem possible to give grass to a cow. I am in a city where cows don't go around the streets in the mornings."

    Pat came the reply. "So what? There will be a goshala (cow shed) somewhere around? You have a car. Get up at five in the morning, go by car to the goshala and feed all the cows in the shed with grass."

    The devotee was fully consoled, his sorrow giving way to peace.

    பெரியவா சரணம் !!

    "காவேரிப்பட்டணம் போஸ்ட் மாஸ்டர்.." என்று அடி எடுத்துக் கொடுக்க, மகான் புன்முறுவலுடன் அவரை கைகளினால் ஆசீர்வதித்து, “பரத்வாஜ கோத்திரம் என்றார்!”
    காஞ்சி பெரியவா ..

    தர்மபுரி மாவட்டத்தில் கிருஷ்ணகிரிக்கு அடுத்த ஊர் காவேரிப்பட்டணம். 1944-ம் ஆண்டு மகா பெரியவா அங்கே முகாமிட்டிருந்தார. ஒரு மாத காலமாக மகான் அங்கே தங்கியிருந்தபோது நித்திய நிகழ்ச்சிகளில் தினந்தோறும், ஊர் பொதுமக்கள், பக்தர்கள், பிரபலங்கள், அரசாங்க அலுவலர்கள் போன்றோர் தவறாமல் பங்கேற்பது உண்டு.

    இந்தக் கும்பலில் அஞ்சல்துறை அதிகாரி கோபால கிருஷ்ணனும் ஒருவர். மெத்தப் படித்தவர். காஞ்சி மகான் மீது அளவுகடந்த பக்தி கொண்டவர். அதனால் காவேரிப்பட்டணத்திஅதிகாரியாகப் பணியாற்றிக் கொண்டு இருந்தபோது ஓயுவு நேரத்தில், மடத்துக் காரியங்களிலும் தன்னை ஈடுபடுத்திக் கொண்டார். அதனால் மகானின் நேர் பார்வையிலும் பலமுறை தென்படக் கூடிய வாய்ப்பு அவருக்குக் கிடைத்த்து. அதுவே பெரிய பாக்கியமல்லவா? தான் அல்லும் பகலும் போற்றும் தெய்வம் தன்னைப் பார்க்கிரார் என்பதே, அருள் பெற்றது போலத்தானே?

    ...
    சில தினங்களில் மகான் வேறு ஊருக்கு தனது முகாமை மாற்றிக் கொண்டார்.

    இது நடந்து பல வருடங்களுக்குப் பின், மகான் வேறு ஓர் இடத்தில் முகாமிட்டிருந்தார. நிறைய பக்தர்கள் வரிசையாக ஆசி பெற்றுச் சென்றவண்ணம் இருந்தனர். அந்த வரிசையில் நின்றவர்களில் அஞ்சல் அதிகாரி கோபால கிருஷ்ணனும் ஒருவர். ஓவ்வொருவராக நகர்ந்தபின், இவர் முறையும் வந்தது. நமஸ்காரம் செய்தபின் தீர்த்ததுக்காக தன் கையை நீட்டினார்.
    தீர்த்தம் கொடுக்கும் முன், மகான் திடீரென நிமிர்ந்து பார்த்தார். ஏதோ கேள்வி கேட்கும் பாவனையில் கண்களைச் சுரிக்கி இவரைப் பார்த்தார்.

    எதையோ ஞாபகத்துக்குக் கொண்டு வருகிறார் என்று நினைத்த அதிகார், “காவேரிப்பட்டணம் போஸ்ட் மாஸ்டர்.." என்று அடி எடுத்துக் கொடுக்க, மகான் புன்முறுவலுடன் அவரை கைகளினால் ஆசீர்வதித்து, “பரத்வாஜ கோத்திரம்!” என்றார்.

    இரண்டே வினாடிகளில் இந்த சந்திப்பு நிகழ்ந்துவிட்டது என்றாலும், அதிகாரிக்கு ஆனந்தம் தாங்கவில்லை.

    அவ்வளவு கும்பலிலும் தன்னைக் கைதூக்கி ஆசீர்வதித்து தனது கோத்திரத்தை மறக்காமல் சொன்னார் என்றால், ஒவ்வொரு பக்தனின் சரித்திரத்தையும் அவர் ஞாபகம் வைத்துக் கொண்டு இருக்கிறார் என்றுதானே அர்த்தம்?

    Experiences with Maha Periyava: Foresight….Be Patient…You will know what is correct!

    It was at the time of the establishment of Nanganallur Anjaneya Swamy temple and the construction works of the temple was being carried out in the beginning of 1993.

    A lot of devotees were visiting the temple.

    At that time, one day I went to have the Darshan of Sri Maha Periyava to seek His blessings. I prostrated before Him and paid my obeisance. MahaSwamigal knows me and about the construction of the temple. “Stay blessed. I have heard from many people who are coming here about the news of people thronging at your temple. Being a giant sized Anjaneyar, He must have had a great Aakarshana Shakthi” (the power of attracting the masses).

    Blessing me, He asked me with concern,” He is quite a big Swamy. Don’t you have to offer Him a lot of Prasadam to eat?” At once I replied,” We cook a big bag of rice and offer Him every day Periyava.”

    “Just plain rice?”

    “No Periyava. We prepare Chithraannams (mixed Rice) and offer Him.”

    “What are the items you are preparing?”

    “From morning onwards we make a variety of Ven Pongal, Sakkarai Pongal (Jaggery rice), Puliyodharai, (Tamarind Rice), Milahorai (Pepper Rice), Curd Rice etc. in an order, Periyava.”

    “So a lot of devotees are coming to get all these?”

    “An extraordinary number turn in everyday Periyava. All the items are used up daily,” I replied
    proudly.

    Periyava was silent for some time. Then He asked,” Are you giving the Prasadam in small quantity or large quantity?”

    I replied to Swamigal with a lot of pride,” We give them a piece of plantain leaf and offer them a lot, Periyava”

    At once MahaSwamigal asked,” I heard of it from people who come here. Let me ask you one thing. Should the Prasadam be given in small quantity as Prasadam or should it be given as meals in plenty?” The question came eagerly.

    I didn’t know how to reply this.

    I was standing there confused.

    The great saint said laughing, “Why are standing awestruck? I’m asking you this question, only to get an idea about it myself,” He asked again.

    I replied humbly with some hesitation,” No Periyava, the devotees visiting the temple are coming from far off places. They might be hungry. That’s why we are offering the Prasadam in plenty….,” even before I could complete the sentence, Swamigal replied, “I could understand what you are thinking. But I feel Prasadam should be given in small quantity as Prasadam and the hungry masses can be fed properly by making them sit and have their meals.” He stopped and continued to say, “Though all our Vedas and Sastras have laid down many rules for the Do’s and Don’ts, many things in life can be comprehended only by personal experience,” He said in a non-committal way and I couldn’t get it properly.

    I asked confusedly.” I don’t understand Periyava, which is right? Should the Prasadam be given less or more? You have to guide me in this,” I requested humbly.

    “No, no. You will know which is right from your own personal experience. Till then, be patient,” the great saint had seen me off without letting out the answer.

    Presently I am constructing a temple at Panchavadi, situated on the way from Pondichery to Dindivanam, for a 36 foot high Panchamukha Anjaneya Swamy. Construction work is being carried out now. It is customary here too, to give a plantain leaf to the devotees and give away Prasadam to their heart’s full. Sometimes I myself used to undertake the job of giving it. Recently one day I was giving away the Prasadams in large quantity as usual. I was distributing Kadhambam (Sambar Rice) in one leaf and Curd Rice in another leaf. A few of the men sitting nearby and tasting them, approached me. One among them told me seriously,” You are giving Sambar Rice and Curd Rice in large quantity and they are all very tasty too. But then, we would like to suggest one thing. It would be better still if you could offer some Poriyal (a side dish) to the Sambar Rice and a hot pickle for Curd Rice.” I was flabbergasted by it. At once the everlasting sentence of the great Foreseer of Kanchi uttered in 1993 flashed through my mind.

    “No, no. You will know which is right from your own personal experience. Till then, be patient.”

    I have learnt the truth that ‘Prasadam should be given as Prasadam only, in small quantity,’ from this personal experience.

    Experiences with Maha Periyava: Gold Sahasranama Kasumalai (1000 Coin Necklace) for Mylapore Karpagambal

    The very famous temple of “Karpagambal Udanurai Kapaleeshwarar” temple is situated in Mylapore, Chennai. Starting in 1950, my mother, Smt. Anandavalli along with her women associates used to do “Lalitha Saharanamam” chanting in this temple on a daily basis. Smt. Muthulakshmi Ammal was their group leader. This group was called “Karpagambal Sahasranama Goshti” and the leader Smt. Muthulakshmi Ammal was called “Guru Paati”. My mother (Smt. Anandavalli) was the Secretary. In addition to the daily chanting they also participated in other devotional activities during the festive season.

    In 1970, one night, Karpagambal came in Guru Paati’s dreams and asked her “You and your group are performing Sahasranama chanting for me everyday. I want a Sahasranama gold coin kasumalai (a gold necklace made out of 1000 gold coins with the 1000 names of the Goddess engraved on it) for me just like Visalakshi and Kamakshi (Goddesses in Varanasi, UP and Kanchipuram, TN respectively). Can you do it for me?”. Guru Paati happily informed everyone in the group about her dream. All of them decided to collect donations from like minded devotees and make the Gold Coin Necklace for Karpagambal.

    Years passed but the middle-class women of the group were unable to collect the huge amount required to make the gold necklace. As per suggestions from others, in 1978, Guru Paati and my mother along with their group went to Kanchi Matham to meet Paramacharya and ask for His guidance. When they were waiting to get His darshan, one of the persons working in the Matham came to them and said “Periyava is calling you immediately – Go inside” and so all of them rushed in. Once in, they were mesmerized by looking at Him. Periyava asked them “Are you in short of gold and money for the Gold Coin Necklace?”. My mother and their group were speechless on hearing this, since Periyava Himself had asked about this before they could even utter a word about the Gold Coin Necklace. Periyava continued “The Goddess (Ambal) only asked you right? She herself will take care of it. You don’t have to worry! And He added “Visalakshi and Kamakshi have Gold Coin Necklaces made out of riches. But Karpagambal is going to get a Gold Coin Necklace made of devotion (Bhakthi).” He then turned to Guru Paati and my mother and told
    “Name your group as “Karpagam Suvasini Sangam” and keep performing many Suvasini and Bala Thirupura Sundari pujas” and blessed them and gave Prasadam.

    Since they strictly followed Sri Maha Periyava’s words, gold and money started to flow in abundance. In 1982, the work for the Gold Coin Necklace began. The responsibility of making it was handed over to “Vummidi Bangaru Kannan”. On one side of every coin was one name of the Goddess and the other side contained the temple seal (Ambal in the background with Shivalinga being worshipped by a peacock in the foreground). At frequent intervals, the progress of the work was informed to Maha Periyava via Kanchi Mutt. Maha Periyava sent few scholarly Pandits from the Mutt’s Veda Patasala to ensure that the names of Goddess being engraved in the coin and their order were correct.

    This great task also faced multiple barriers in the form of Religious Endowment Board, few members of the Temple board, few jobless social organizations and few anti-social elements. But due to the blessings of Sri Maha Periyava and due to the help rendered by the Managing Director, Sugavaneswarar, Thakkar Kuppuswamy, Head Priest Viswanatha Sivaachariyaar, Lawyer Krishnaswamy the task was completed successfully. The dedication of the Lalitha Saharanama Gold Coin Necklace to Arulmigu Karpagambal as decided to be celebrated on 26-2-1986 and Vivek & Co were designated as the host of the function.

    Unfortunately, on 20-1-1986, my father was admitted in hospital due to ill-health. He lost his consciousness and lost movements in his hands and legs. Doctors who treated him lost hope and told that at the maximum he may live for 48 hours. My mother was unable to bear this, and she confined herself to our pooja room. Guru Paati along with the group, Vummidi Kannan and Vivek, carrying the completed Gold Coin Necklace, went to meet Maha Periyava in Kanchi Mutt. Seeing all of them, Periyava asked “What happened? Why didn’t your secretary come along?”. They emotionally informed Periyava about my father’s condition and my mother’s situation. Periyava looked the Gold Coin Necklace and said “The chain has come out very well. Your secretary will be present to put this chain to Karpagambal. Carry on and don’t worry”. He blessed everyone and gave Prasadam. On their way back, everyone directly came to my home and informed my mother about Periyava’s blessings and gave Prasadam as well.

    What a miracle! At the same time, we got news from the hospital that my father was back to conscious state and was doing very well. The doctors were surprised at the progress and they said, “Some miracle has happened” and discharged my father the very next day. He walked back home from the hospital which is at a distance of 2 blocks.

    On 26-2-1986, the function to dedicate the Gold Coin Necklace to Goddess Karpagambal happened in a very grand way. My father also participated in the festivities for some time. My mother, being the secretary of the group, presided the function in the morning and did her work. She participated in the evening meeting as well and submitted her report. Also, on behalf of the Suvasini group, she presented a Godrej Almirah to safeguard the chain and the documents related to the Gold Coin Necklace.

    Even now, on all Fridays, on all Full Moon days and every year on February 26th, the Goddess can be seen wearing this Gold Coin Necklace. On 13-3-1986, my father reached the lotus feet of the Goddess without any sufferings. There are no words to describe the Kindness of Sri Maha Periyava, who, in the state when the doctors lost hope and told that my father won’t survive, gave the life back to my father and ensured that my mother did her duties very well and also gave us few more days with our father. Even to this date, me and my family along with my relatives and friends discuss about this wonderful incident and happily remember Sri Maha Periyava’s grace and blessings.

    "ஸ்ரீ பரமேஸ்வரர் கையால சால்வை பெற தனக்கு தகுதி இல்லை' என்று உருக, உடனே 'தகுதி இல்லேன்னா நான் கொடுப்பேனா. "

    திருநெல்வேலி சுவாமிநாதனுக்கு பீஹாரில் போஸ்டிங் என்று ஆணை பிறப்பிக்கப்பட்டு கடிதம் வர, அவர் அதை எடுத்துக் கொண்டு மஹான் பாதங்களில் அர்ப்பணித்து பணிந்தார்.

    மஹாஸ்வாமிகள் 'எங்கு போஸ்டிங்' என கேட்க, 'பீஹாரில்' என்ற உடன் 'என்ன அந்த இடத்திற்கா? நான் உன்னை ஆதிசங்கரர் பிறந்த பூமியில் அல்லவா கலெக்டர் ஆக்கிப் பார்க்க ஆசைப்பட்டேன். அப்பொழுது தானே நீ மடத்திற்கு நிறைய திருப்பணி செய்ய முடியும்' என்று கூற வீடு சென்ற சுவாமிநாதனுக்கு மீண்டும் இன்ப அதிர்ச்சி காத்திருந்தது. என்னவென்றால் பீகாரில் செய்திருந்த நியமனத்தை விலக்கி கேரளத்தில் போஸ்டிங் செய்து வந்திருந்த அரசு ஆணை தான் அது. இதில் இருந்தே ப்ரம்ம ஞானிகள் எப்படி விரும்புகிறார்களோ அப்படித்தான் நடக்கும் என்பதும், அவர்கள் தீர்மானத்தை மீறி இயங்க எந்த சக்தியாலும் இயலாது என்பதும் விளங்குகிறது. இதே போல் சங்கிலித் தொடராய் சுவாமிநாதன் வாழ்வில் மட்டுமே எத்தனை அருள் விளையாட்டு.

    மதுரையில் பெரியவாள் முகாம் இட்டிருந்த பொழுது சப் கலெக்டராக இருந்த சுவாமிநாதன் நண்பர்களுடன் சென்று அவரை தரிசனம் செய்து விட்டு அங்கேயே ஒருநாள் தங்கி இருக்க முடிவு செய்தார். இதை அறிந்த சுவாமிகள் 'ஒரு ஜில்லா கலெக்டராக இருந்து கொண்டு ஒரு சன்னியாசி பின்னால் சுற்றிக் கொண்டிருந்தால் பணிகள் என்னாவது' என்று கேட்டு விட்டு உடனே அலுவலகம் செல்லுமாறு அவருக்கு உத்தரவிட்டார். சப்-கலெக்டராக இருக்கும் தன்னை ஜில்லா கலெக்டர் என்கிறாரே என்று நினைத்தபடியே சுவாமிநாதன் அலுவலகம் சென்றார். அங்கு காத்திருந்தது ஜில்லா கலெக்டராக அவரை பிரமோஷன் செய்து அனுப்பியிருந்த அரசு ஆணை.

    இவர் ஏலக்காய் Board Chariman ஆக இருந்தபொழுது ஒருமுறை தரிசனம் செய்ய வந்திருந்தார். "ஏலக்காய் போர்டு சேர்மன் சுவாமிநாதன் வந்திருக்கிறார்" என்று மஹாஸ்வாமிகளிடம் சிப்பந்தி கூற, 'என்ன? எப்பொழுதும் ஏலம் போர்டு, காபி போர்டு, டீ போர்டுன்னு சொன்னா எப்போ ரெவின்யூ போர்டு சேர்மன் ஆவாய்" என்று கூற அந்த தெய்வவாக்கும் உடனே பலித்தது. சுவாமிநாதனை ரெவின்யூபோர்டு சேர்மன் ஆக நியமித்த உத்தரவு அவருக்கு மறு நாள் கிடைத்தது. சுவாமிநாதன் வாழ்வில் படிப்படியாய் அதிசயம் நடந்ததற்கு நடமாடும் தெய்வத்திடம் அவர் கொண்டிருந்த திடமான பக்தி தான் காரணம்.

    ஐ.ஏ.எஸ்.எழுதி கலெக்டர் உள்ளிட்ட பலவித உயர் பதவிகள் வகித்த இவர் தமிழ் கவிஞரும் கூட. இவர் பெரியவாளின் பேரில் பல கவிதைகள் எழுதி இருக்கிறார்.

    ஒருமுறை மஹாஸ்வாமிகள் ஒரு விலை உயர்ந்த சால்வையை தன் திருக்கரத்தால் ஒரு அன்பரிடம் கொடுத்து அதை சுவாமிநாதனுக்கு போர்த்தும்படி ஆணையிட, மனம் நெகிழ்ந்த அன்பர் 'ஸ்ரீ பரமேஸ்வரர் கையால சால்வை பெற தனக்கு தகுதி இல்லை' என்று உருக, உடனே 'தகுதி இல்லேன்னா நான் கொடுப்பேனா' என்று சுவாமிகள் கேட்க, சுவாமிநாதன் 'தகுதி பார்த்துக் கொடாமல் தாயிற் சிறந்த தயவினால் பெரியவா தந்த பரிசு' என எண்ணி உருகினார். அவருடைய பக்தர் என்பதே பெரிய தகுதி தான்.
