I would also like to share a similar experience when i went to see Mahaperiyava when he was in Gulbarga. I had gone with my chittappa and chitti and chittapa;s son who was 6 years. My grand father and his brother were vadhyars and belonged to Ramanathapuram Palghat and were known as Subramania and Rasu Vadhyar and both of them had been conferred the title of Dharmagya . They were quite close to Mahaperiava.
And then asked him how Subramania and Rasu Vadhyar were to which my uncle replied Rasu Vadhyar passed away a few months back and Subramania Vadhyar was keeping fine. The next Question which Mahaperiava asked , stunned me ” Did Rasu Vadhyar perform the morning sandhi ?” My uncle said he performed the morning sandhi but by the time madhyanikam came he met his end. Then i realised how important was Sandhyavandanam in our lifes . Since that day I have been doing it regularly.
Importance of ‘Trikala’ Sandhya Vandanam — narrated by Shri Venkatasubramanian Lakshmanan in Varagur Venkateshwara Perumal group in Facebook. Let us try to follow His teachings. Even if we are unable to do the Trikala Sandhyas in the respective time frames, let us do all the three anyway at the times convenient for us, as reciting all the mantras are very important. By doing Praatha at 5.30 am, Madhyanikam at say 8 am and Saayam after we return home from office. Let us not worry about the doshams that may be incurred by doing them at inappropriate times, the punyams of reciting the mantras will far outweigh the doshams, if at all there is a dosham. Blind faith in His words is what is required.
