An afternoon with Dr Veezhinathan

20FR-DR_VEEZHINATHA_165501f

I met Dr Veezhinathan very briefly at Rathnagirishwarar Temple few weeks back. When we entered, he was wrapping up an upanyasam. Shivaraman introduced me. At that time, I thought he didn’t register me as there were many people around him and he was ready to leave etc. He proved me wrong when we met again 2 days back. The moment he saw me, he said “we met the other day”! He was actually writing some books and we barged right in and took the liberty to disturb him!

Shivaraman & I ended up listening to mama talk for almost a full hour. He cherished the memories of his interaction with Mahaperiyava. Words are just flowing; incidents after incidents; he quotes exact years, exact names of so many individuals, places where He stayed etc. He exclaims often “how much of a karunamurthi He is?” “how diplomatically He handled things” etc.

Often during the conversation he looks up; eyes fixed into the roof or some object, suddenly turns towards us and asks, “will we ever see another mahan like Him again?” “Can anyone else do this?” These are not just some words…He means this.

This is the feeling of people who have experienced Periyava for long time….They miss Him so much…I have read how gopika sthrees missed Lord Krishna; how Arjuna felt helpless without Krishna. Nochur explains it beautifully on this point. How Uddhavar himself misses Krishna….

As my friend in Chicago says, “Dr Veezhi mama has Periyava’s paadham in his heart and worships right there” – how true!

All we can pray to Periyava is to keep people like Veezhi mama healthy and continue to share more of their experiences, bless us to get more bakthi towards periyava…

When I did “abhivadhaye” to him, I was little worried, if he would spot any sanskrit pronunciation mistakes – luckily he didn’t!!

  7. Great tribute to a real savant and Great Bhaktha of Maha Periyava. I remember the post showing Veezhi Maama telling his experiences with Maha Periyava “Do not follow the shadow!” May Sivaramanji collect as much information about Veezhi Maama’s experiences with Maha Periyava, which would be a Blessing from Maha Periyava to us all! Jaya Jaya Shankara, Hara Hara Shankara!

  8. You have had the rare fortune of meeting a great devotee, primarily, a great scholar of Samskrita scriptures and an authority on Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam. Should listen to Veezhi mama speak about Kalidasa, a flood of information would flow incessantly. Mama has done great research about the antiquity of our Peetam and of the times of Sri Adi Shankara Bhagavadpadacharya and penned some authentic books on the same. Some of his works on this subject can be found on kamakoti.org

    • Can you please list the name of he books and the links on kamakoti.org. I tried searching but couldn’t find them. Or atleast the section under which you saw them.

  9. Maheshji, can you share those experiences of veezhi mama with us?
