I went to Kanchipuram, without any purpose because the previous day night, some divine force was directing me firmly to proceed to Kanchi. This was around the year 1993, during the month of October or November. (I am not clear about the month) .I started without any program and reached Kanchi.
I was walking in the streets of Kanchi, like a mad person and I was crossing Sankara Mutt and I stopped myself for some time at the entrance. (Probably that was my divine destination) I had two minds whether to step-in or proceed further to walk in the streets of Kanchi. I can confidently mention here that some divine force had pulled me in. Consequently, I went inside the Mutt.
After I crossed the front portion of the Mutt, there was a well and at the left side of the well, there was a small door and presumably that was the entrance of that room. I could see a bright and tejomaya saint “Paramacharya” was sitting in HIS usual posture. There was no prasadams in front of him. Periva was with the frowning looking down, without giving his blessings to devotees.
When I entered and arrived at that spot there was total silence. Maha Periva with frowning face was looking down and he was neither blessing people nor giving prasadams. The reason Maha Periva only knows. Wait for few minitues here,
That was the time at Chennai; I was cursing my fate that I did not have my guru. Because of my age and my profession, I was not bothered to have my guru and I refused to yield to my parent’s advice also. My situation, was like a baby elephant loses her mother in the forest and aimlessly loitering in the dense forest, without knowing what to do and exposing her for all predictable and potential dangers of the forest?
This was the time that some divine force, forced me to go to Kanchi and have my Divine GURU. Probably that was the message to me from Maha Periva that “Do not feel that you don’t have a GURU. I am departing to my divine world, hence common and don’t have such kind feeling because I am there. Exactly after a month I could see, scrolling news in TV that Maha Periva attained Siddhi.
I was able to correlate these happenings in my life, by going through the events chronologically. Consequently, I am fully convinced that Maha Periva had enrolled me as one of his student in HIS divine Gurukulam. I am very clear, in stating this because the breath taking events of miracles in my life like throwing all my deep rooted habits of 55 years were thrown out without traces overnight and my confirmed cancer was cured and no TV, News papers and no entertainments and only Vedam and Gayathri chanting right from 4.30 in the morning. Maha Periva washed me in acid to give me “Sareera Suddhi and Athma Suddhi” These changes are diagonally opposite to my character, attitude and mind set. This itself confirms that every miracle in my life is tangible. Even typing such a lengthy article with five fingers and one hand is itself conveys a message to me that” I am there with you always.”
There are many more events which are worthy in mentioning any number of times in any kind of forum. One such event was, virtually Maha Periva snatched me from the hands of Yama Dharma, at Himalayas, during midnight at an altitude of 12000 feet plus, is a testimony for my above claim and a testimony for Maha Periva’s divine potential.
After, I reached Mutt, Thanks for waiting please, proceed further,
As there was huge crowed of devotees, waiting for divine blessings, I could get a place, only at the extreme back of the crowd. I have decided that it is not fair on my part by pushing people and try to have dharshan. My inner voice advised me that Paramacharya’s glimpse of eye sight is enough and that itself is amounting to blessing.
I just closed my eyes and prayed for the blessing of His Holiness. After a couple of minutes, my inner voice, tells me to open the eyes. When I opened my eyes, one middle aged person with beard, who was assisting periva, asked me to come near Periva’s feet as paramacharya wants to bless me. I have mentioned my inner voice because the same inner voice directs me in my daily life now for all my miracles.
I could not believe that I am being called. With much reluctance, I tried to move forward and the crowed, voluntarily gave me the way, to enable me to reach near the feet of Paramacharya. There was no place, to do Namaskaram and I could bend myself maximum, to offer my Namaskaram. There was nothing in front of Periva as prasadem. Paramacharya put his right hand behind him and took an apple. Apple was green in colour. Periva was rolling the apple with right hand for some time. Periva blessed me by keeping kukkum on that apple and dropped in my hands.
Please note one important thing here that Maha Periva never gives prasadem in HIS own hand, from the year 1990 but HE will keep prasadem in a bamboo plate and ask sreekaryam people to give it to the devotees or Periva will push the plate towards devotees. But to the stunning surprise of everyone, Maha Periva in his own hand took an apple and press kumkum, so many times over the apple and dropped in my hand. That Divine drop was the beginning of my divine era in my life.
Periva was attempting to keep kumkum on the top of the apple by pressing kumkum with his fingers and I could see, the shapes of the tender fingers were formed a snake like line. The apple was green in colour, presumably not ripe at that time. That was the message to me that
Periva’s blessings may reach me
Once the time is ripe
Which, I could not understand at that time.
I could understand and realize it after 22 years.
No conversation took place. The entire crowd was looking at me presumably thinking that what a divine soul, I should be. But I was really embraced even to think, even I am a good soul. After receiving prasadm, I calmly came out and proceeded towards Chennai, as I came to understand my purpose of Kanchi trip.
I did not know the importance or divine value of the prasadams and Periva’s blessings at that time. After 22 years, Paramacharya connected me through his gentle whisper through my soul and started fulfilling the purpose of his blessing. I recall my First Miracle happened in the year 1993.
Now, having understood the value of Maha Periva and HIS “sparisam” through an apple, I am really afraid for not understanding what Maha Periva expects from me. What kind of divine responsibilities, I should render to the society. I have consulted many elders and their advice was” continue the same article writing and Maha Periva will guide you at every stage.” Hence I am continuing.
Yes! That is very true because after my paralytic stoke, Maha Periva started teaching me, taming me and gave me a feeling that I am a student in a Divine Gurukulam, where my divine master is Maha Periva.
This is the starting point of Miracles in my life. Hereafter every article of mine will be a divine feast by Maha Periva to all devotees. Much more than the readers of my articles, I will be happier to share my experiences, for any number of times with any number of people.
My Assignment is,
Spread Maha Periva and
HIS divine school of thought
Even to the unknown frontiers, till I breathe.
“PERIVA IS BEYOND TIMES”
You can expect an article about Periva’s instruction to me that I should do 108 pradakshnam for 108 days without break in ”Sri Anjanaya Temple–Peria Praharam” during Brimha Muhurtham at about 4.30 in the morning. How I completed those 108 days and my experience during those 108 days and a stunning miracle on 108th day is really a divine treat for all Maha Periva devotees.
Dear Devotees of Maha Periva, I wish to inform you all that I am not a professional writer and hence if you find, there is no cogency in my narration kindly bear with me.
