It is sad to share that our dearest paati had reached the lotus feet of her guru Mahaperiyava on a very auspicious Guru Poornima Day (july 12th) while her son was giving running commentary of kanchi Matam Vyasa puja to her. Last words she mentioned were “Gurunatha….Gurunatha…”..She was 98 years old.
She is not just a paati – to me, she is my guru who taught me what “anugraham ” means through her interview! Whenever I feel that I am not blessed, paati’s words come to my mind – feel rejuvenated!
From the past three great devotees of Periyava whom we lost, it is clear that all of them surrendered themselves that gave them the mukthi. Sri Chettiar attained His feet after entering Kanchipuram entrance while talking about Periyava. Now paati! It isn’t just enough to watch and appreciate their interview; we need to learn from the great life they led and keep them as our guru for doing bakthi/surrender.
Our condolences to her entire family!
Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara!
