Caution – Long mail!
Long time readers in this forum would know this well. There are several times we went through a cycle of “comment moderation” pattern due to uncontrollable comments in the forum. This was done earlier to maintain the sanctity of this place. for a long time, I let all comments pass through. However, I am forced to withhold / monitor / moderate the comments again due to recent issue on two posts “Ganesh” and “Theetu”. One of the problems I had was not monitoring these comments regularly due to my work schedule etc. I got to know only bit later when too many things were said already.
One of our readers found the post unacceptable as “observing theetu” is not possible in today’s world etc. However, he/she pointed out one mistake that this blog did – it should not have been titled as “Please observe theetu”. It should have been given the original title from Dheivathin Kural – I fixed that. I have removed ALL comments from that post. I have no plans to bring them back. Sorry!
If you are reaching out to HH Pudhu Periyava or HH Bala Periyava or for that matter Sringeri Periyava or any other Periyava to see if they are going to be flexible on acharam and anushtanam, my piece of advice to you – “Don’t waste your time” – No acharyas in the world will tell you that you don’t have to follow acharam.
Here is an important message to all the readers – this blog is about spreading Mahaperiyava’s message – AS-IS. Mahaperiyava’s message is like supreme court justice – ultimate authority on every possible topics one could think of. If you do not like His messages, this is not the blog for you. If you read them and if you think that these messages are not applicable in today’s world, that is your choice – I am fine with that. Neither I nor anyone could force anyone to follow anything…I am nobody to do it – I have no qualification to do so. Please do not call that Periyava’s messages absurd. If you are one of those people, please leave this blog. This is no place to comment about any Periyava. Old-timers here know that I used to crack whips on people who come and do trash-talking about our Periyavas. I don’t have to prove my bakthi towards all three Periyavas to anyone. I know and they know – that’s all matters.
Lastly, someone questioned about if this blog has anugraham of Periyavas. Yes – poorna anugraham. Please read these below.
HH Pudhu Periyva knows about this blog and He had blessed this and my foundation too.
I have spent lot of time with HH Balaperiyava during my trips to India. In April, I spent enough time – He knows what our blog does – he knows gho rakshanam we did – He was very appreciative of what we are doing etc. He knows about my foundation also. The exact word He said before I got “utharavu” from Him last time – “Continue what you are doing”.
Here is the anugraham from Mahaperiyava through my dreams:
“Apr 11, 2013
Periyava is camping somewhere – dont know the name….I also live in the same place….Someone is running towards me and telling “Periyava is waiting for you…Come soon…”. I am washing my feet, hands etc and running with the same person to wherever He is staying….Periyava is sitting there alone – do not see many people around…..I go there and Periyava is giving an action as if He wants to hug me. I do a namaskaram – He blesses me….He also asks something …could not remember…..
Last night was guruvaram + Pradosham. For the past 1 week, I am spending lot of time in publishing eBook of Deivathin Kural Volume 1, sitting late nights etc. In last night /early morning dream, Periyava is sitting and someone is introducing me to Him, “he is doing all these work on deivathin kural on computer etc”. Periyava asks me to do namaskaram. When I do sashtanga namaskaram, He touches my head with both His hands and blesses me. I stood up with tears in my eyes.
I need no other blessing than this.
To repeat, comments will be moderated for some more time. While I & Sai will be very cautious with our posting, I request all your readers’ cooperation to be sensitive to the comments you write. This blog space is not to prove who is right or wrong – it is only to learn from others. More importantly this is NOT a place to question our acharya’s messages. Period.
Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara!
