    Experiences with Maha Periyava: Helping the Poor is Pooja we do to God

    Sri Maha Periyava was travelling in the Kodavasal–Koradacherry route in Thanjavoor district in Tamil Nadu. On the way in Tirukklambur, the slum people met Him and submitted their humble offerings.
    Paramacharya spoke to everyone, heard their welfare and woes. Unhurriedly, He discussed the details with the Manager as to what SriMatham could do to mitigate their woes, either in their own capacity or with the charity of affordable devotees.

    The Managers and the other officials started worrying about the ensuing delay for their next camp and the following pujas. The God of the poor, however, seated Himself among them, and ordered dhotis and saris for everyone present there from the local textile shop. If that shop did not have the required goods, Paramacharya ordered them bought from Kodavasal. He also ordered preparation of thick sambar rice to be served to the people under the shade of the trees.

    The Manager was worried that the two or three hours time spent in these activities would delay reaching their next camp and that it would be very tedious for Periyava to undertake the long pooja thereafter.

    When He started to express his feeings, Paramacharya simply said, “This is also a pooja.”
    What a Divine message: Helping the poor and supporting the poor is also pooja we do to God.

    Experiences with Maha Periyava: “Strange Plea”
    (Periyava sent the prasadam by flight, accepting the request of His devotee)

    Sathanoor Krishnamoorthy Aiyar was a devotee and owner of several land and real estates. He had come for Periyava’s darisanam almost fifty years back. What made him do it, we do not know, but he put forth a strange request to Sri Maha Periyava.

    “Once I breathe my last, Periyava must favour me by sending Ganga Jalam and Tulasi leaves as prasadam to cleanse the body and soul and get me liberated”.

    No one else except Periyava heard this strange request and Sathanoor Krishnamoorthy Aiyar did not mention about it to anyone.

    Later when Sri Matham was camping in Satara in Maharashtra a message was received over phone that Sathanoor Krishnamoorthy Aiyar has attained the heavenly abode.

    Periyava was informed about it at the appropriate moment. He was silent for a minute. Then He gave Ganga Jalam and Tulasi leaves to His shishya and sent him to Sathanoor by flight.

    The disciple went to Aiyar’s house and put the prasadams on the mortal remains before he embarked on his final journey.

    How is it possible to remember the request of a devotee even after fifty years? Even though there was no witness, even though Periyava was in a place so far away, his request was honoured and fulfilled by Periyava.

    That is the grace of Periyava!
