Shri Rajah Iyer is one of the longest member of this blog. He narrated his experience and how Periyava saved him. I wanted to share this with rest of the world. There is another experience he shared in the past that i posted earlier – click here to read
Shri Iyer mentioned that he doesn’t know what bakthi is – true, bakthi is for people like me who are trying to get the grip of Periyava and learning to surrender- not for people like you, Sir, who has already surrendered! Who other than such a staunch devotee like you would see Periyava when your car is spinning at 100 mph?! Amazing experience…..
Thanks for sharing….
Enjoy this one!!
“It was July 1980 when I was working in Ijebuode,Nigeria a town,100 KM away from Lagos the capital.My wife and my daughters were yet to join me and I used to go to Lagos for weekends on Fridays to be with my friends.On Fridays,just like in western world,there used to be heavy traffic on the express highways and when we were driving in my Peugeot504 at 100 KMPh(I had a diver by name Philip Ogunde,who was driving me on that day)I was reading a book on the back seat .It was also slightly drizzling on that Friday afternoon and suddenly I heard a Baaaaang..
Philip Ogunde has rammed our car at 100KMPh on the car on the left side! Wherever I live I used to have Mahaperiyavaa’s picture nearby..even in my cars!
I suddenly saw HIM in front of me!
The car made a 180 * turn on th left towards the Median which was well secured .as in any western country but at 100 KMph Centrifugal force!
The car banged the Median and the centifugal force made the car to make a complete turn again and it hammered the median TWICE in a matter of few seconds before the car was thrown into the Bush on the right side..
During thiese few seconds…BELIEVE ME..I had Only Maha Periyavaa smiling at me!
There was LUCKILY a TRuck just a few 100 yards from our car ,whose intelligent Driver,saw the bang of my car on the Median! He applied suddent Brake and also STOPPED the entire Traffic towards Lagos with his presence of mind,as othewise we wd have been ploughed thro’ as our car made two turns due to very High Centrifugal force..
Luck wd have it the Bush was at a level ground and if it was an elevated level ,car wd have been smashed byond recognition.. I just opened the back door as if nothing had happened ,when many onlookers and particularly, the NIgerian Truck driver hugged me and lifted me..
“Oh!Jesus!This is MIracle!This MIracle!!”
Many Nigerian women onlookers screamed, “God saved you..BELIEVE ME!I Tell You!!”
Philip Ogunde was shocked beyond words and was unable to get out of the Driver’s seat as he took time to recover! We removed him and put him on the back seat and I started driving the car!
The car started normally,EXCEPT that th Silencer was smashed and thrown away and hence Noise was too much to bear! I drove the car to Lagos .. The on lookers shouted
“This is Miracle! This is Miracle!! God is there! Believe me, God is surely there!!”
When I reached Lagos to my friend’s house.Philip Ogunde was still in a shock and took him some days to recover. I repaired the 504 and drove back next day with Ogunde on the back seat,AS IF NOTHING HAD HAPPENED!!
MAHAPEIYAVAA WAS AGAIN SMILING ON MY DASHBOARD!!!
I dont know much about Bakthi….
But in my life I have confidence that He will protect me!
