“Don’t worry, you will pass!”



This is the story of my father Shri.V.Venkataraman’s divine experience with mahaperiava. He has narrated an event that happened to him when he was 11 or 12 years old way back in 1954 or 1955. During the summer when my father was studying 5th or 6th standard in P.S High school in Mylapore, his father (my grand father Shri Vaidhyanathan) arranged for his son’s upanayam. Since he could not do the poonal all by himself due financial strain, he wanted to take his son to Kanchi mutt, where there were arrangements made for samashti upa nayanam for young boys.

My father was taken to sankara madam in the summer of that year, even before appearing for his annual exams that year. The dates of upanayanam and exams clashed and so he could not write few exams as he had to be in kanchipuram for the ceremony. After all the ceremony of upanayanam was over, he was happy on one hand that he had his brammopadesam done by Periava Himself, but on the other hand he was worried about repeating the same class in the school next year.

On the day when they started from mutt, Periava saw my father who was looking worried and asked him the what he wanted. My father only said that he wanted to pass his exam that year. Periava blessed him sayingm “Don’t worry you will pass!”. My father very innocently asked him, “How will i pass? I did not write few exams as I came here”. Maha Periava smiled at the young boy and said,  “Go, you will pass”!

After few days of his arrival at Madras, his results said that he has failed and he must attend the same class that year. My father was very much worried and went to the school on the reopening day. What A Surprise!!!! Something unbelievable happened….. During the holidays, a founder member of the school had passed away and on his death the principal had ordered not to fail any child in the school to pay respect to the soul that had departed. So my father was promoted to the next class. :)))

CAN HIS WORDS GO FALSE? Now my father has retired from Indian Bank and is happy to share this experience with every one of you in this forum!

  1. That is why it is Deiyvathin Kural! hara hara sankara, jaya jaya sankara! Mahesh, sometime back there was a post on a panchaloka vigraham of periyava which He wanted a devotee to start a temple with in Mambalam, and the devotee unexpectedly got help from a person who came in at the last minute and offered money, and said His name was Sankaran when he asked and disappeared. By His grace, I Was able to visit the West Mambalam temple, but I can’t for the life of me find that post as I want to send some donation. Can you help? Thank you.

  2. We should not think these things are MahaPeriyava’s prediction. Rather, whatever MahaPeriyava utters become truth. It must happen. Jaya Jaya Shankara Hara Hara Shankara, Kanchi Shankara Kamakoti Shankara.

  3. His sathya vakku can never go false.
    Jaya jaya shankara hara hara shankara.

  4. MahaPeriyava padma Padham Saranam

    It is not a prediction — it is the Destiny — God Himsefl — Defined — Please do not say prediction — Ambal Herself is (still is) waiting for MahaPeriyava’s (MahaGanapathi’s) Order

    • Sir,
      What else we ordinary mortals can do.
      Saranagati to MahaPeriyava. MahaPeriyava padham saranam. Jaya Jaya Sankara.Hara Hara Sankara……….

  5. We should not think these things are Paramacharya’s predictions. Rather, whatever Paramacharya utters becomes the Truth. It must happen.

  6. Avery nice to read the article. There is no end to Sri Kanchi ParamaCharya Karuna.
    Jai Jai Sankara Hara Hara Sankara
