High Fever @ 103 degree Celsius for PuduPeriyava. Guruvayur camp. Vyasa Pooja by PuduPeriyava. It’s 10am but PuduPeriyava couldn’t get up at all for the Pooja. Periyava is at Pandarpur.
Earlier, Sri Balu Mama (now Swamigal) has conveyed to Triplicane Periyava (Angarai Sri Kalyanarama Bagavathar) to perform his annual Saptaakam of Srimad Bagavatham at Guruvayur instead of Periyava’s camp @ Pandaripur, stating that Triplicane Periyava needn’t come all the way & it may be difficult for them too. This he has stated a Periyava’s wish.
“That is how these people say, but you ask Periyava directly. Periyava would approve to do it at Pandaripur”, others around advised. Triplicane Periyava haven’t uttered a word as reply.
Later, he has said that “It is not correct to check what Periyava has said, “In Srimad Ramayana, the moment Kaikeyi Devi says, Sri Rama is ready to go to forest. He didn’t check with the King. That is what pithru-bhakthi is.” He continued, “it incorrect to go and verify. You should trust and do it”. Like how Sri Rama said, “if anyone who’s is with Periyava asked me to jump in fire, I will jump into fire!”. That is his Guru-Bhakthi. “Don’t think Periyava is in Pandarpur. Wherever he is, Periyava does listen what you say!” With such strongly assurance to Sri VJR Mama, Triplicane Periyava & went to Guruvayur for his annual ‘Saptaagam’.
Now, PuduPeriyava is running high on fever in Guruvayur. Triplicane Periyava was conducting his ‘Saptaakam’ at Kanchi matam, Guruvayur. By 11am Sri Anjan Namboodhri, who use to say ‘Hare! Hare!’& pay homage & hug Triplicane Periyava, has requested him to recite ‘Jwara Stotram’ for PuduPeriyava. Triplicane Periyava has replied, “You have learnt so much…you can do it too”. Sri. Anjan Namboodhri replied, “i already ate.nobly if you chant while fasting, the benefit is high”.
Triplicane Periyava & Sri VJR Mama went to PuduPeriyava who was having 103 deg & couldn’t get up at all. At the side of PuduPeriyava’s head Triplicane Periyava recited the ‘Jwara Stotram’ thrice. In next five minutes, PuduPeriyava got up & finished his snanam for the pooja!
In the next day or so, Triplicane Periyava has got the fever of the same 103 deg. He also has the sraadham of his mother the next day (He didn’t got his sanyasa at that time). Everyone was worried. ‘Somehow’ it got over suddenly & everything was completed successfully and came back to Triplicane.
Nathan Cafe Viswanatha Mama came in searching of Triplicane Periyava…
He said he had been to Pandaripur to have Periyava’s darshan. Suddenly, Periyava called him & said, “He is doing sapthaham for me in Guruvayur with high fever..” Periyava continued, “so, you do kozhakkattai and do neiveidhyam to Pillayar”.
Nathan Cafe was so surprised. He thought all of us have been thinking of Periyava but Periyava has been thinking of someone. How great his devotion must be…
On his return, Sri Viswanathan Mama has searched for his address in mutt but it wasn’t available. Heard Triplicane. So searched around for few days & finally got him. That’s when everyone knew that Periyava knows everything and what Triplicane Periyava said was true: “how does it matter where Periyava is physically…he is listening to us in some roopam “…
It is true even at this second!
