Devotee :: Shri T.R.Krishnamurthi Sasi & Sekar

There is no one worth mentioning in the world who did not know our Mahaswamigal. In India all pious people know him as God in human form. Next to Goddess Kamakshi He is adorning Kanchi-Kshetram blessing all people who are lucky to go to Him.

I should say, I am gifted to receive of Thennangur situated between Vandavasi and ancient Kanchipuram. Thirty years ago my cousin brother Sri T.S. Nagaswamy who was also from Thennangur, one day phoned me to say that Mahaswamigal would be visiting Thennangur and that I should be there to receive him. He was working as an advocate and I was a Purchase Officer in Dunlop India, in their Ambattur factory. I took my two sons along with me and we were there in time to receive the Jagadguru. After we had darsan I introduced my sons starting to say
“This is my kanishtan” and I faltered a bit to say that the other is my jyeshtan. Mahaswamigal looked at me with a smile and said “enda ivan chinna pillai, ivan peria pillainnu sollen” (“say this is younger
and the other is elder”). All of us were thrilled with the affectionate words and the simplicity of communication. He wanted me to put the names in Tamil because I faltered in putting it Sanskrit.

After resigning my job at Dunlop I started a small-scale industry in the name of Sasi & Sekar for the manufacture of gears required for machinery. Two years after starting my factory in 1967, I went to
Ranipet for business. On my return I wanted to have darsan of Paramacharyal who was then in Gollachatram. When I went near the entrance of Goll-chatram the guard told us that we could not have darsan as Paramacharyal was in Nishtai. In dejection I was about to turn when the guard said that we could have darsan as Swamigal has now come out and sitting in the courtyard. By then a big crowd had gathered. All of us rushed in with the thulasi garland in our hands.

Paramacharyal was sitting by the side of the corner pillar; we were standing about ten feet away in a circle and I was in the front line. Swamigal, signaling by his fingers, called. I could not know whether it was me, People by my side said that it was me who was called so. I went near covering my mouth with my right palm and stood at about four feet away. At that time he ordered “Kitta Va”(come near). I well still nearer. Again I was ordered “Utkkaru” (sit down). I sat very near him.

At this time he started the conversation in Tamil. I shall give the verbatim.

Param : “engirundu vare” (where do you come from?)

Self : “madrasle kodambakkathilirundu” (from Kodambakkam in Madras).

Param : “enna panre?” (What are you doing?)

Self : “gear factory vachirukken.” (I am running a gear factory).

Param : “gearunna?” (what is gear?)

Self : “palchakram” (toothed wheel).

Param : “munnadi enna pannindirunde?” (what were you doing earlier?)

Self : “Dunlop purchase officera irunden.) (I was purchase officer in Dunlop)

Param : “Dunlopile Krishnane theriyuma?” (Do you know Krishnan in Dunlop?)

Self : “Theriyum” (I know)

Param : “un factorile ethineper velai seiyara?” (How many people work
in you factory?)

Self : “aru per velai seira.” (six people are working)

Param : “masam enna sambalam kodukkare?” (How much do you pay per month?)

Self : “Sumar irandayiram.” (Roughly two thousand).

Param : “Kadan vanginayo?” (Did you borrow?)

Self : “vangiyirukken.” (I did)

Param : “vaddi koduthindurukkaya?” (Are you paying interest?)

Self : “koduthindurukken.” (I am paying)

Param : “vaddiyum koduthu sambalamum kodukka vandindirukka?” (Do you
get enough to pay the interest and the wages?)

At this stage I laughed and told him ” onga anugrahathile vandindirukku.” (By your grace I am getting enough). Swamigal also laughed and said lifting his concaved palm, “Kshemama iru. Poiva”: (Be prosperous. Go). Swamiji’s blessings simply thrilled not only me but also everyone assembled there. From that time onwards we are growing and I consider all employees as a part of my family.

  4. “Sasi Sekar” — this reminds me of Sri Adi Sankara Bhagavadpaadaal’s “Kanaka Dhara” stotram where in one place Sri Aachaarya praises Mother Sri Mahalakshmi as “Sasi Sekara Vallabhethi”… The way He praises or should I say “flatters” Her (in order that She Blesses that poor Brahmana Stri who dropped in His bhiksha paatram a nellikani (gooseberry), it literally used to bring tears to my eyes. The way He praises Her and the way She yields, that has to be experienced to understand. Sri TR Krishnamoorthi avargale, ungalukku aneka Namaskaram. Romba bhaagyasaali neengal!
