    பெரியவா சரணம் !!


    " பெரியவா ஆப்பிளைக் கையில் எடுத்துக்கொண்டு சில வினாடிகள் அதை உருட்டினார்.

    "இந்தா! வாங்கிக்கோ! ஒண்ணும் பயப்படாதே! பேரன் பொழைச்சு வந்து நன்னா ஓடி ஆடுவான்.....இந்த விபூதி குங்குமத்தை அவனுக்கு இட்டுடு....."

    ஸ்ரீமடத்தில் கைங்கர்யம் பண்ணிவந்த ஒரு பாரிஷதரின் குடும்பம் சென்னையில் இருந்தது. அவரது மனைவி பெரியவாளிடம் மிகுந்த பக்தி பூண்டவள். ஒருநாள் காஞ்சிபுரம் வந்து பெரியவாளை தர்சனம் பண்ணிக்கொண்டிருந்தபோது அந்த அம்மாவுக்கு திடீரென்று உடனே சென்னை போகவேண்டும் என்ற உந்துதல் உண்டானது. அதிகம் யோசிக்காமல் உடனே கிளம்பி சென்னை வந்து வீட்டுக்கு போனதும்தான் அந்த அதிர்ச்சியான தகவல் தெரிந்தது....அவளுடைய பெண் வயிற்று பேரன் விளையாடிக்கொண்டிருக்கும்போது, மேல் மாடியிலிருந்து தவறி கீழே விழுந்து, வடபழனியில் உள்ள ப்ரைவேட் ஹாஸ்பிடலில் சேர்க்கப்பட்டிருக்கிறான் என்பது!
    ஆடிப்போனாள் பாவம். I C U வில் இருந்த பத்து வயஸ் பேரனை பார்க்கக்கூட முடியாமல் ஹாஸ்பிடல் வராந்தாவில் குடும்பமே நடையாய் நடந்து கொண்டிருந்தது. தலையில் நல்ல அடி என்பதால், நிலைமை கொஞ்சம் கவலைக்குரியதாகத்தான் இருந்தது. ரத்தம் நிறைய போயிருந்ததால் பிழைப்பது ஸ்ரமம், அப்படிப் பிழைத்தாலும்,நரம்புகள் பெருமளவில் பாதிக்கப் பட்டிருப்பதால்,கை கால்கள் செயல்படுமா என்பது சந்தேஹம் என்றெல்லாம் அதிர்ச்சி குண்டுகளை அள்ளி வீசினார்கள் டாக்டர்கள்!

    பாட்டிக்கோ "இனிமே இந்த டாக்டர்களை நம்பறதைவிட, கண்கண்ட தெய்வம் பெரியவாளோட பாதங்களை பிடிச்சிண்டு என் பேரனுக்கு உயிர் பிச்சை கேக்கறேன்" என்று கூறிவிட்டு, ஓடினாள் மறுபடியும் காஞ்சிக்கு! அன்று அதிக கூட்டம் இல்லை. உள்ளே நுழைந்து பெரியவாளை தர்சிக்கும் வரை அடக்கி வைத்திருந்த அழுகை, பீறிட்டுக் கொண்டு வந்தது. பாரிஷதர்கள் "மாமி, அழாம என்ன விஷயம்னு பெரியவாட்டசொன்னாத்தானே தெரியும்! நிதானத்துக்கு வாங்கோ" என்று சமாதானப்படுத்தினர். பெரியவா அமைதியாக அவளைப் பார்த்துக்கொண்டிருந்தார்.

    அவருக்கு சொல்லியா தெரியவேண்டும்? காலஸம்ஹார மூர்த்தியாயிற்றே!

    "சோதனை போறும் பெரியவா! எங்களால அதை தாங்க முடியாது...." என்று அந்த அம்மா பெரியவாளிடம் கதற ஆரம்பித்ததும், பெரியவாளை அவளுடைய கதறல் சங்கடப்படுத்துமோ என்று மெல்ல ஒரு பாரிஷதர் அவளிடம் செல்ல முயன்றதும், விரலால் சைகை பண்ணி "அவள் பேசட்டும். தொந்தரவு பண்ணாதே" என்று சொன்னார். மாமி பாட்டுக்கு புலம்பிக் கொண்டிருந்தாள். அதே சமயம் பெரியவா தன் மௌனத்தை கலைக்காமல், பக்கத்தில் தட்டில் இருந்து ஒரு ஆப்பிளைக் கையில் வைத்துக்கொண்டு இப்படியும் அப்படியுமாக சில மந்த்ரங்களை ஜபித்தபடி உருட்டிக் கொண்டிருந்தார். அப்புறம், அதை ஒரு தட்டில் வைத்து, அந்தத் தட்டை தன் இடது கையில் வைத்துக்கொண்டு, வலது கையால் குங்குமத்தை எடுத்து அந்த ஆப்பிள் பழத்துக்கு குங்குமார்ச்சனை பண்ணத் தொடங்கினார். ஆப்பிள் பழம் காமாக்ஷியானதோ என்னவோ! நமக்கென்ன தெரியும்?

    பாட்டியின் அழுகை குறைந்து ஒரு புது நம்பிக்கை பிறந்தது!

    ஆப்பிளைக் கையில் எடுத்துக்கொண்டு சில வினாடிகள் அதை உருட்டினார். "இந்தா! வாங்கிக்கோ! ஒண்ணும் பயப்படாதே! பேரன் பொழைச்சு வந்து நன்னா ஓடி ஆடுவான்.....இந்த விபூதி குங்குமத்தை அவனுக்கு இட்டுடு....." அவள் கைகளில் பேரனின் உயிரை பிச்சையாகப் போட்டமாதிரி, ஆப்பிளையும் விபூதி குங்குமத்தையும் குடுத்தார். பாட்டியின் அத்தனை துக்கமும் போன இடம் தெரியவில்லை! உடனேயே சென்னை வந்தாள். I C U வில் யாரையுமே அனுமதிக்கவில்லை. குழந்தை நெற்றியில் எப்படியாவது பெரியவா குடுத்த ப்ரசாதத்தை இட்டு விட வேண்டுமே! என்று அலைந்தாள். அவள் மனஸில்
    இப்போது கலக்கமோ பயமோ இல்லை. "நிச்சயம் என் பேரன் நன்னா ஆயிடுவான் " என்ற நம்பிக்கை அசைக்கமுடியாமல் நின்றது. அதேசமயம் டக்கென்று I C U கதவு திறந்ததும், பேரனை ஒரு ஸ்ட்ரெச்சரில் வைத்து வெளியே கொண்டு வந்தார்கள்.

    வழக்கம்போல் டாக்டர்களும், நர்ஸுகளும் "கூட்டம் போடாதீங்க! ரொம்ப சீரியஸ் ! வழி விடுங்க!" போன்ற பயமுறுத்தல்களோடு வெளியே வந்தனர்.

    ஒரே பாய்ச்சலில் பேரன் பக்கம் போனாள்.....தெய்வமே! எங்கே விபூதி குங்குமம் இடுவது? நெற்றியே தெரியாதபடி பெரிய கட்டு இருந்தது. எங்கோ லேசாக தெரிந்த இடத்தில் பெரியவாளை வேண்டியபடி ப்ரசாதத்தை இட்டுவிட்டாள்!

    இத்தனை நேரம் எப்படி இடுவது என்று கவலைப்பட்ட பாட்டி, பேரனின் முகத்தில் வெளியே தெரிந்த ஏதோ ஒரு சின்ன இடத்தில் பெரியவாளுடைய ப்ரசாதத்தை இட்டதும், அப்பாடி! என்று அத்தனை கவலைகளையும் உதறித் தள்ளிவிட்டு அமர்ந்தாள். "இனிமே என்னோட பேரன் பொழைச்சுக்குவான்".......

    குழந்தையை ஸ்கேன் பண்ண கூட்டிக்கொண்டு போய்விட்டார்கள். சற்றுநேரத்தில் டாக்டர் ரிப்போர்ட்டோடு வெளியே வந்ததும், அத்தனை பேரும் அவரை சூழ்ந்து கொண்டனர்....
    "மெடிக்கல் மிராக்கிள்!" என்று "கண்டேன் சீதையை" மாதிரி சொல்லி, அத்தனை பேருடைய வயிற்றிலும் பாலை வார்த்தார். இருக்காதா பின்னே? காலனை எட்டி உதைத்த அம்ருதகடேசன் கையால் ப்ரஸாதம் வாங்கிக்கொண்ட குழந்தையை காலன் நெருங்குவானா?
    டாக்டர் குழு தொடர்ந்தது......

    "எப்படி சொல்றதுன்னே தெரியலே...முன்னாடி எடுத்த ஸ்கேன், இப்போ எடுத்த ஸ்கேன் ரெண்டுக்கும் ஏகப்பட்ட வித்யாசம் இருக்கு.....ஆனா, nothing to worry ....சந்தோஷமா இருங்க. மொதல்ல எடுத்த ஸ்கேன்ல குழந்தையோட மூளை நரம்புகள் எல்லாம் ஏகத்துக்கு damage ஆயிருந்தது. ஆனா, இப்போ எடுத்த ஸ்கேன்ல எல்லா நரம்பும் ரொம்ப normal ஆ "எப்படி இருக்கணுமோ, அப்டி இருக்கு. எங்க சர்வீஸ்ல இப்படி ஒரு கேஸை நாங்க பாத்ததில்லை!"
    பாட்டியால் தன் ஆனந்த பரவசத்தை, பெரியவாளுடைய மஹா காருண்யத்தை அதற்கு மேல் அடக்கிக் கொள்ள முடியவில்லை.


    "அப்படி சொல்லுங்கோ டாக்டர்! அதான் என்னோட பெரியவாளோட மஹிமை! அதான் இந்த ஸ்கேன் ரிசல்டை ஒண்ணுமே இல்லாம பண்ணிடுத்து! மெடிகல் மிராகிள்ளாவுது! மண்ணாங்கட்டியாவுது!" பெருமை கலந்த சந்தோஷத்தோடு சொன்னாள். காஞ்சிபுரம் சென்று பெரியவா திருவடிகளில் நன்றியோடு விழுந்தாள்.

    அடுத்த ஒரு வாரத்துக்குள் குழந்தைக்கு சில சின்ன சின்ன பிரச்சனைகள் பாதித்தாலும், நல்ல முறையில் முழுசாக வீடு வந்து சேர்ந்தான்!

    Experiences with Maha Periyava: The Vaideeswaran who cured the chronic stomach pain

    Though Periyava has never revealed that He is Parameshwara Avatar, there are lots of incidents where His kindness unfolds automatically on seeing His devotees’ problems. Many such incidents have been witnessed by His close attendant, Sri Balu who had the blessings to serve Sri Maha Periyava.

    Once, a 34 year old devotee came to visit the Kanchi Mutt with his parents from Tirunelveli. He was filled with grief. They were standing separately and were not familiar with what they needed to do. It was very clear that they had come to SriMatham for the first time and probably belonged to the Sringeri SriMatham.

    Sri Periyava saw them and called them closer. Once they came near Periyava, overcome with grief, they started crying.

    He started to say, “We are coming from Sringeri SriMatham. I am suffering from unbearable, chronic stomach pain. We have consulted multiple doctors, visited several temples, without any cure. We went to have darshan of our guru at Sringeri and He sent us here to seek blessings from You as Vaideeswaran. That is the reason for our visit.”

    “Did He say like that”, asked Periyava as if He did not know anything.

    The devotee must have got some consolation and started crying as if he wanted to surrender completely to Periyava.

    The devotee started to say, “I have come here seeking your blessings to get my ailment cured. Only Periyava can save me from this chronic pain. If I am supposed to live with this pain for my entire life, then I think it is better to end my life here itself. Periyava needs to save me.”
    Periyava looked at the devotee with a lot of kindness. He then closed His eyes in meditation for some time. The other devotees including Sri Balu were waiting to see what was going to happen next.

    After sometime, Sri Periyava gently opened His eyes and looked at the devotee. At the same instant, the devotee’s stomach ache vanished. It was visible in the eyes of the devotee. He started to say. “Periyava!!! Vaideeswara!!!, I do not know where all the pain has gone.” He prostrated before Periyava and left the SriMatham happily.

    But from that day, everyone including Sri Balu felt that Periyava was suffering from stomach pain. Sri Balu was responsible for the Periyava’s Bhiksha and he felt that he might be responsible for that. When Bhagawan itself was suffering, to whom could he go and pray? Sri Balu decided to go to his Kula Deivam, (family diety) Vaideeswaran temple and pray for Periyava. The next day being Ekadashi and since Periyava did not take Bhiksha, he planned to go that day.

    Since Sri Balu could not tell this directly to Periyava, he said that he wanted to go to Vaideeswaran temple.

    “You always say that Periyava is Sri Vaideeswaran, and still do you want to go there?” Periyava asked Sri Balu, casually revealing a divine secret.

    Sri Balu wanted to get the permission, and so he said, “I have not visited the temple after my tonsure ceremony when I was a kid and want to go now”.

    Periyava blessed him and Sri Balu reached Vaideeswaran temple. Those who pray to Sri Vaideeswaran, usually get the parts of the body (like hands, legs, etc.) in silver and offer it. Since Sri Balu was praying for Periyava’s stomach, he was looking to get a silver stomach part as offering. He could not find it in any of the shops there.

    An old lady approached Sri Balu and said, “Are you looking for the silver stomach part, you will not get them at the shops, it is only available in the Temple Office. They give it only to very important persons”. She went away after saying this. Sri Balu was surprised to hear what he wanted from a stranger.

    He started walking towards the Temple Office. He could not say that he had come from Kanchi SriMatham and wanted to offer the silver stomach part to Sri Vaideeswaran, so that Periyava would be cured of His stomach pain. He went and meet the Temple’s Executive Officer as an ordinary person. On talking to the Executive Officer, Sri Balu soon came to know that both of them had studied in the same school in Mannargudi.

    The Officer agreed to give the silver stomach part and Sri Balu paid Rs. 750/- and happily received it. He prayed to Sri Vaideeswaran wholeheartedly and offered the silver stomach that he had received from the Temple Officer.

    When Sri Balu reached Kanchipuram, he realized that Periyava had fully recovered from the stomach pain and was radiating happiness as Ananda Natarajar. SrI Balu said to Periyava, “With the blessings of Periyava, I had a very good darshan of Sri Vaideeswaran”.
    Periyava looked at Sri Balu with a smiling face and said, “Did you go and give my stomach pain to Sri Vaitheeswaran?”

    Sri Balu was stunned. He realized, how the stomach pain had transferred from the devotee to Periyava and then to Vaideeswaran. This incident made Sri Balu realize the immense compassion of Sri Maha Periyava.

    It is true that if we surrender wholeheartedly to Sri Maha Periyava, we will be blessed with all prosperity and auspiciousness in this world.

    Experiences with Maha Periyava: Periyava’s elucidation

    The noted lyricist, Kannadasan visited Sri Maha Periyava and as usual they discussed various spiritual matters. Kannadasan was earlier an atheist and wrote articles criticizing religion. He changed gradually due to the effect of Sri Maha Periyava who weaned him from useless rationalism, but the basic nature of criticism still continued.

    He asked Sri Maha Periyava when milk is white then how come the Parkadal (ocean of milk) is shown as Megavarnam (colour of clouds, bluish tinge)? Has the colour of MahaVishnu dissolved in the ocean of milk?

    Acharyal gave a smile. He just said, ‘Wait. You will get the reply by noon’.

    Kannadasan was perplexed. He did not dare to say anything. Vummidi Bangaru Chetty visited the SriMatham that afternoon. Both Kannadasan and Vummidiyar belonged to the same Chettiar community and greeted each other in their traditional way. Afterwards Vummidiyar placed a large ‘green emerald’ at the Acharyal’s feet pleading with him to accept it. The sage had no discrimination between a gem and a monolithic rock.

    He asked the staff member of the Mutt to bring milk in a vessel. After it was brought, he asked Vummidiyar to immerse the ‘emerald’ in milk.

    Now this was a shock to the jeweller. This was the process used to check the genuineness of ‘emerald’ in his field.

    Did the Kanchi seer suspect his intentions or the gem. He remained silent. Acharyal then called Kannadasan to come and see. Kannadasan was shocked. The milk had turned pale green and a tinge of light emanated from the ‘emerald’ immersed in milk.

    Kannadasan was speechless. How did this happen? The Acharyal explained the reason in a scientific way regarding the change of colour and drew a parallel with Parkadal “When Parandaaman (Lord Vishnu) is lying in the Parkadal, He too emits such a radiance. Hence it is Megavarnam’.

    Tears filled Kannadasan who then immediately composed the famous song ‘Tiruparkadalil Pallikondar Sriman Narayana……….’

    As for Vummidiyar, Acharyal blessed him requesting him to take the ‘emerald’ to the Varadaraja Perumal Kovil and make a Mukutam (crown) for the Perumal’.

    He too wept for his ignorance that he had felt humiliated earlier when Acharyal told him to immerse the ‘emerald’ in milk. It was not to test the genuineness of the gem.

    It was the greatness of this Gnana Guru to drive away ignorance and guide people.

    Experiences with Maha Periyava: Periya Doctor... (The Great Doctor)

    It would have been in the year 1957. Kanchi Maha Swamigal and Sri Jayendra Saraswathi Swamigal were camping in a house in Rameswaram Road, T. Nagar (Chennai). I was living with my parents in the Northern end of the same street. My age then was twenty two. I was studying in a Secondary Grade Teachers Training School.

    Sometimes Maha Periyava used to pass through my house, either during the morning or the evening hours. I have often seen Sri Swamigal cross my house on the street. My mother at those times would be waiting at the entrance with a camphor plate, after having drawn a kolam in front of our house. It became her custom to show the lighted camphor before Sri Maha Periyava when he came in front of our house, and prostrate to him.

    The progressive thoughts in my mind, a sense of defiance, the nerve of youth, the lack of maturity to distinguish between good and bad--all these came together when I chided my mother, "This man is some sanyasi. Why do you prostrate to him? What do you gain by that act? You are thus prostrating to him in an uncivilized way continuously, is he going to save you? Don't do such wrong things hereafter." Hearing my indecent words my mother said, "Podaa, Po!" ("Mind your business!") And went inside.

    Years rolled by. I started working as a teacher in the P.S. High School, Mylapore, Chennai in the
    year 1959.

    A few years later, my mother started suffering from a severe setback in her health, her BP shooting up. The VHS hospital at Taramani, Chennai had just then been established. I admitted my mother there for treatment. At that time I was taking tuition at their house for the two sons of Mani Aiyer, proprietor of Kalyani Hotel (the hotel is no longer there now) near Mylapore Kapali temple. His family was very devoted and loyal to Sri Maha Swamigal. They would often go to Kanchipuram and have darshan. They would consider doing service to His holy feet as their most enduring happiness.

    Mani Aiyer was residing in a house in Mandaveli near Mylapore. In the small puja room opposite the hall of their house, an adorned holy picture of Sri Maha Periyava was kept. A lamp would always be burning by the side of the picture. I would be sitting on the swing in the hall and taking class for the two boys. Since the puja room was always kept open, when Sri Periyava's picture came under my glance, a prickling sensation would arise in me. I would get down, go and close the puja room doors and then continue my teaching. It has happened several times this way.

    As I mentioned earlier, I was worrying over my mother's health condition and was teaching the lessons somewhat for namesake. Tears would fill my eyes. The worry and fear that my mother would pass away leaving me alone would surge through my mind.

    One day when the teaching was going on, Thiru. Mani Aiyer who was just back home asked me, "What Sir! You are worried, your eyes have turned red! What is the matter?" Wiping my eyes I said, "Nothing of that sort Mani Aiyer! My mother's health is not alright. Hypertension. I have admitted her in the VHS. That is the cause of my worry."

    Mani Aiyer: You showed her to a good doctor?

    Myself: I told you already that I have admitted her in the VHS.

    Mani Aiyer: What did they say?

    Myself: They said that she will be alright, no cause to worry. But I am not satisfied with their words.

    Mani Aiyer: Sir! Let your worries go. I shall take you to a big doctor. Your mother will become alright by his mere look.

    Myself: Is that so? Who is that doctor, my mother would be cured if she is shown to him? Where does that big doctor reside? When can I see him? Shall I bring my mother right now?
    There was anxiety in my reply; also haste and enthusiam; much anticipation; because my mother should get well completely soon.

    Mani Aiyer: Your mother need not come. It is enough if only you come.

    Myself: Mani Aiyer! The disease is not for me, but my mother! If I come how can my mother become alright? Shoud not that big doctor test my mother?

    Mani Aiyer: Not necessary. If that big doctor just looks at you, your mother will become alright.

    Myself: (with some distrust) If I am seen my mother would become alright? Such a kind of doctor? Alright. If that is the case I shall come right now. Come on, let us go and see him.

    Mani Aiyer: You cannot see him just like that. He is not here. He is in Kanchipuram.

    Myself: In Kanchipuram? Why should such a big doctor reside in that place? Who is he? M.B.B.S. or M.D.?

    Mani Aiyer: He is beyond those degrees. He is the doctor of the doctors. (Pointing to Periyava's picture in the puja room) He is the doctor I referred to.

    Myself: (laughing loudly without being aware of it) What Mani Aiyer! This man, a doctor? He is the doctor of doctors? What do you babble? How can a sanyasi become a doctor? If it is a question of some puja or rituals I can believe it. But then you talk of this man as a big doctor! Hmm... Would it be possible for this sanyasi to cure my mother? This is just your imagination... (The words came out of the edge of my sorrow).

    Mani Aiyer: What, MeenakshiSundaram! You who is born in the Brahmin community talk this way?

    Myself: Then what Sir! After saying that you would take me to a big doctor, you now say that you would take me to a sanyasi! How can it be possible by this kind of an action?

    Mani Aiyer: Meenakshi Sundaram, your mother should become alright for you. Only that, right? I am responsible for it. We go to Kanchipuram tomorrow itself, alright?

    Myself: (with klesha) Mani Aiyer, if we go to him will my mother really get well?

    Mani Aiyer: Certainly. Enough if you have darshan of him and just speak about your mother. Your mother will certainly get well. You can also remain in peace.

    Myself: In that case I shall come to Kanchipuram. But when we are there you should not compel me to remove my shirt, take bath, wear vibhuti-kumkumam, or do namaskaram. I shall come; see him; tell him about my mother; that's all. (The torsion of the young blood was not gone yet).

    Mani Aiyer: What Ayya, would you not take bath daily? Would you not remove your shirt occasionally? Not wear vibhuti-kumkumam even rarely? Do those things just once tomorrow! What, will that drown your lineage?

    Without knowing why, I did not object but agreed to those words of him. On the next day, the three of us--Mani Aiyer, myself and Thiru. Venkataraman who worked with me started and reached Kanchipuram in the morning hours. Taking bath in the Sarva Tirta Kulam and wearing vibhuti and dhoti, I reached the gates of Kanchi SriMatham for the first time in my life. And yes! There was a feeling of something like an electric vibration in my body.

    We entered the Matham. Kanchi Maha Swamigal was in the front hall! Yes, the big doctor! He was sitting, leaning on a rice bag. Fruit plates and garlands of flowers are seen before him. Also a queue for his darshan. We too tucked ourselves in that queue.

    A bamboo plate in my hand. In the plate were fruits, spinach and some vegetables. My glance fell on the ascetic king seated there. Without any efforts, tears started to flow from my eyes. Yes, I wept without my knowing it. I didn't understand the reason. Why should I weep?

    His keen look that has divine light fell on me. Raising his head that God gestured me to come to him. He might have known my sorrow with his prevision.

    Again that Talking God beckoned me with a raised hand. I walked slowly and peacefully to him, placed the bamboo plate in my hand before him and prostrated to him unknowingly.

    "Are you ashtasahasram (a sub sect)?"

    "Yes."

    "What relationship do Seshadri, Kunju in Karukudi have with you?" (Karukudi is a hamlet near Thiruvaiyaru).

    "They are relatives of my aunt."

    "Your grandfather was the Palace Receiver in Thanjavur! Was he before or after Sundaram Aiyer?"

    I nodded head that I did not know it. Silence prevailed for sometime.

    Raising his head, "You have admitted your mother in the hospital? How is she now?"

    What! That God asked me the same question that I came to him with, seeking remedy. For this too, I just stood sobbing, with no reply from me.

    "Don't worry! Your mother will get well and return home."

    Yes! That big doctor had given a new lease of life to my mother! That Mahan looked sharply at me for sometime. Then, giving me prasadam, he blessed, "Give this to your mother. She will get back home well."

    To this date, I heartily bow and adore that "great doctor" who vanquished the demon of ignorance in my mind and put me on the right path.

    As foretold by that "great doctor", my mother got well and arrived home safely. The big doctor has saved my mother's life. He is taking care of us till this day.

    Experiences with Maha Periyava: “Give this saree to the Mami over there, she has given her new Deepavali saree to the cart driver and is wearing an old saree.”

    It was Deepavali. A horse cart driver came to SriMatham and prostrated in front of Sri Maha Periyava and stood there as if he wanted to ask something from Periyava.

    Sri Maha Periyava signaled to him and asked, “What do you want?”

    The cart driver hesitantly asked for a dhothi (veshti).

    Sri Maha Periyava asked one of the SriMatham shishyas to give him a dhothi and towel.

    The shishya brought and gave him a dhothi and towel, but, he did not move from there and asked for a saree for his wife.
    There was no stock of sarees, but, Sri Maha Periyava ordered the shishya to bring a saree for him. The shishya did not know what to do.

    There were lot of people who were waiting in the queue to have Sri Maha Periyava’s darshan. One lady, who was standing in the queue understood the situation of the SriMatham shishya. Immediately, she went to a secluded place at a distance and changed herself into an old saree that she had brought with her. She folded the new saree and along with a blouse piece, they gave the new saree to the horse cart driver.

    Sri Maha Periyava knew what had happened. He knew about the exchange of saree. In a few minutes, a couple came for Maha Periyava’s darshan. They had brought their daughter’s wedding invitation along with them and asked Sri Maha Periyava to bless their daughter’s wedding.

    Maha Periyava asked them, “Did you buy wedding sarees in Kanchipuram?”

    They replied,” Yes, we bought many sarees – koorai pudavai (bridal saree), sarees for in-laws and other relatives.”
    Sri Maha Periyava asked them,” Can you give one of the sarees that you bought for your relatives to the SriMatham?”
    The couple were very happy to hear this and kept an expensive saree in front of Sri Maha Periyava.

    Sri Maha Periyava called another shishya and said, “Give this saree to the Mami who is standing over there. She has given her new Deepavali saree to the horse cart driver and is wearing an old saree”.

    The shishya was very surprised how Sri Maha Periyava knew about this since this did not happen in front of Sri Maha Periyava. The lady was also very surprised. Which divine force put this message into Sri Maha Periyava ears?!!

    Experiences with Maha Periyava: Sri Maha Periyava as Lord Vaidyanatha

    Periyava was camping in Madras Sanskrit College. He was suffering from chest pain. The Ayurvedic medicines he took did not reduce the pain. The Manager was worried. Hesitatingly he told Periyava, “If you allow me, I will send word to Dr.Vaidyanathan in Alwarpet. I somehow feel that if he comes and sees, it will be better.”

    Surprisingly the request was granted. Dr. Vaidyanathan came and checked the pulse after wrapping His hand with a silk cloth. It was normal. He checked the blood pressure. It was very high. “Periyava, BP is very high. You must take medicine immediately.”

    “OK.OK. You come back and take the tests again after half an hour.”

    The tests were taken after half an hour only to find that it had become too low. Periyava with a knowing smile said.”Half an hour ago, you tested and said that the BP was very high. Now you are saying it is very low. What happens when BP is high and what happens when BP is low?”

    Dr.Vaidyanathan said “If BP is high, it will lead to haemorrhage and there is danger to life. If it is low, then people faint and fall down.

    That is also dangerous”.

    Periyava asked like a child, “But, No such thing has happened to me. Neither haemorrhage nor fainting”.

    The doctor was scratching his head. “That is very surprising to me! BP going up just like that and immediately coming down does not happen usually. I think …..Your body must be totally obeying your commands”.

    This is what happens when you try to treat Lord Vaidyanatha himself……..

    Experiences with Maha Periyava: Flowers strung by thread

    A devotee from Chennai had brought flowers and heaped them to the size of a hill. There were all varieties of flowers, thickly strung strands of jasmine and mixed clusters of fragrant flowers of all colours artistically strung into garlands. However, they could not use this to decorate Sri Chandramouleeswara. They were all strung with thread and not with the strings of banana bark. In the SriMatham, flowers strung together by thread are not used to decorate Sri Chandramouleeswara. The disappointment of the devotee was beyond description. He had brought the flowers so lovingly. Not even a small string of jasmine garland was offered to Chandramouleeswara.

    Periyava came out after the puja. As he passed by, he saw the baskets filled with garlands.

    “Why were these not brought to the puja?” the question was evident from the expression in his eyes.

    “They have been strung together by thread.”

    The devotee who had brought the flowers stood there, his heart palpitating in anxiety not sure what was going to be said about his ignorance. But Periyava is the very form of compassion.

    “Flowers woven together by thread can not offered to Swami. But I can use them!”

    The devotees were delighted. Periyava was seated and all the flowers and garlands were offered to him. It looked like pushpangi seva (offer of decoration with flowers). The devotees were thrilled by this sight.

    “Tirupati Venkatachalapathi!” said one devotee.

    “Tiruchendur Murugan!” said another.

    “Kanchi Kamakshi” said yet another.

    A Vedanti said ecstatically,” Let those who say that the world is an illusion (jagan mithya) hold on to their stand. This moment is a reality (kshanam satyam). Brahmam is satyam. God with form is true… the perfect truth (saguna brahmam parama satyam). God with form, with perfect attributes…. Periyava, the God with form, the personification of Supreme Reality is true (sagunam…satgunam). The one with attributes is the one with goodness (Periyava Saguna Brahmam ... Brahmanandam)"

    How true!

    Experiences with Maha Periyava: Take Goli Soda

    A devotee named Sivan was a resident of Tirunelveli (one of the towns of Tamil Nadu). He used to visit Kancheepuram regularly to have the darshan of Kanchi Paramacharya but whenever he did so, he would neither go near Him nor try to talk to Him. He would simply sit before Him, sometimes for days together and would feel happy by merely seeing Him. This Sivan was a puritan both physically and in his eating habits and always wore the Saivite symbol of 'vibhoothi' (holy ash) on his forehead and anyone seeing him could perceive that he was a man of complete devotion both by his looks and deeds.

    One day after the darshan, he reached 'Maha Swami' as usual to take leave of Him and get His blessings which was usually given by Him by waving His hand. But on that particular day, Sri Maha Periyava opened His divine mouth and asked, “Started for the journey? At least take Soda (aerated bottled water popularly known as 'Goli Soda') …On the way you can...”

    Sivan started for his home town, came to Chengalpet and then started for Tirunelveli. In the same bus, four boys were travelling making noise, troubling the co-passengers. Sivan kept quiet and continued with his journey. When the bus was about to reach Madurai on the way to Tirunelveli, it stopped at a small village. Sivan was sitting in the bus, watching a small shop, having soda bottles arranged neatly in a row, and he remembered what Maha Periyava had told him and besides he also felt thirsty, and so got down and went to the shop to drink one Goli Soda.

    When he came back to the bus to his seat, he was shocked to find his bag, which he usually carried that contained his meagre belongings and money missing. But the four boys shouted at him without respect and said, “We have put your bag in one of the seats at the back. Go there. We want to travel sitting in that seat”

    Sivan meekly went to the seat where his bag was kept and travelled. Immediately after exactly an hour, the bus he was travelling met with an accident, and the two boys who were travelling in his previous seat died on the spot.

    Sivan was shocked and dazed, started thinking why Periyava had asked him to take Goli Soda, which was unusual, why the bus stopped there, and why he saw the shop and the Goli Soda, and why he felt like drinking a Soda.......... and all.

    When the gentleman who narrated this incident to the writer, met Maha Periyava and told him as to how Sivan escaped from the accident, Maha Periyava said, “Oh Sivan thought I saved him, it is the great Lord who has saved him”

    Such is the divine humility of the great Sri Maha Periyava.
