I regret to inform you all that Shri Kanakadhara mama reached lotus feet of Periyava last week. One who watched the interview would understand the life he lived since his childhood…Amazing man….I am so unfortunate that I could not meet him in my last trip despite the fact that he was very close to my place – this is what is called prarabdham….
I always tell Shivaraman – if someone complains that his life is terrible and god has punished, we should slap him (not really!) and make him watch this interview. One can’t suffer any worse than this. He knows what poverty means, he knows what life struggle means. We all have no right to complain after listening to his story.
On the other hand, it is His leela to lift him up in life after teaching bakthi, surrender etc. What a great man – despite all the wealth he acquired, yet he lived a simple life and attributed all the success to Periyava’s kripai.
Our namaskarams to mama. Our condolences to the grieving family members….
