Looking back on how many great devotees have attained Periyava Padham in the past few years and the coincidence of certain auspicious days, it is amazing how Periyava have blessed these devotees: (By saying this, it does not mean that others are not blessed):
Sri Ponds Mama – Guru Poornima Day
Smt Pollachi Jayam Paati – Guru Poornima Day
HH Mettur Swamigal – Deepawali Amavasa
Sri Ra Ga Anna – Sivarathiri Day
Sri Ramanathan Chettiar – Right after he entered Kanchipuram entrance
Sri Vittal mama, Nochiyam Mahaperiyava Thapovanam – Vaikunta Ekadasi Day
HH Balu Swamigal – Bhishma Ekadasi
There are probably more devotees that I am not aware of….What more proof we need to say that Periyava smaranai and Periyava kainkaryam has its own benefits. Periyava kataaksham pratyaksham!
Message for all of us – let us keep Mahaperiyava in our thinking at all times. So when our breathing stops let Mahaperiyava be the last name we utter, let His image be the last image we see and let Him be the only thought for us at that time – rest He will take care.
Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara!
