After I posted the drawing of Shwetha, next day I talked to her mother. She is a very staunch devotee of Periyava – always in His smaranam. During my conversation, she narrated an incident about a dream her son (12 year old boy) got recently. In that dream, this boy sees Periyava standing in a middle of an ocean – like viswaroopam – and standing next to Him. This boy, in his mind thinks “How great a mahan Periyava is? Can I ever become like Periyava?”. Sarvagyan Periyava heard this boy loud and clear and answers, “if you do sandhyavandhanam and samitha dhanam daily, you can also become a mahan like me!”. What more one wants?! BTW – this boy has been doing trikala sandhyavandhanam and samitha dhanam daily – since his upanayanam.
Normally, I do not post individual’s dreams in this blog due to logistics reasons. However I chose to post this for two reasons (1) blessings to this boy (2) message to all of us that doing sandhyavandhanam and gayathri japam is more than what one would need. As Lord Krishna says “I am the Gayathri of all mantras”. Such is the glory of gayathri mantra.
Lucky is this boy and his parents!
Let us take this as an important message and try to do tri-kala sandhyavandhanam. I narrated this incident to my 13 year to motivate him…
Disclosure – I am guilty of myself for not doing my prathas sandhyavandhanam & madhyanikam today 😦
