A Divine Journey
Periva snatched me from the hands of Yama Dharma at Himalayas Yes! I am alive today and narrating before you all.
While I narrate this near death episode, I could not resist myself from emotional outburst. The reason is, I could experience the parental care with divine touch of Maha Periva at Himalayas. I can frankly admit that Mahaperiyava snatched me from the hands of Yama dharma. Had Periva not blessed me during this paralytic stoke at Himalayas, my cremation would have been over at Himalayas- Ganges itself.
Periva not only saved me but brought me back to Chennai very safely by clearing all my hurdles including air craft permission at DaraDun and Delhi. I was transported by a stretcher up to airport and from the entrance to air craft by a wheel chair. Undoubtedly Mahaperiyava travelled with me up to Chennai. I very strongly believe that Mahaperiyava is housed in my heart and Mahaperiyava makes his presence felt by all of us beyond doubt through his miracles. I don’t know why Mahaperiyava chosen me for this divine mission. Only the time should answer.
One of our relative organized a pilgrimage to Bhadrinath involving close relatives. My wife suggested me to participate in that pilgrimage. I never thought that I will be called to participate because that was the time, I had my first paralytic stoke and my right side was paralyzed. With the blessings of Maha Periva, I could recover fast from stoke damages.
Doctors advised me that I may get another attack any time because there are many blood clots at the back of my brain. Hence the offer to Bhadrinath was least expected. However with the grace of Maha Periva, I was offered a seat along with my wife forcefully. I had also agreed and participated in the tour.
Probably Maha Periva should have known already that I may not be able to go out after second stoke which is proved today. I am confined to home and it is almost six years, since I have seen the outside world.
Not interested to see the outside world because, Mahaperiyava is my world. Yes! I mean it.
I am not bothered for my inability to see outside world but before my last breath, I should go to Kanchi and sit before Periva Adhishtanam for some time and ventilate all my suppressed love and devotion and wet the Lotus feet of Mahaperiyava with my tears.
At that time, I should offer to Mahaperiyava whatever Periva likes. This is the only way; I can demonstrate my gratitude to Periva. To be frank with you, if I am offered a choice between my restoration of health and prayer before Periva, I will certainly opt to have the opportunity of my prayer before Periva and let my inability continue. That is my karma.
I am not mentioning this to impress upon anyone but from the bottom of my heart, I am stating this. I am cent percent sure that Mahaperiyava will invite me to HIS Adhishtanam. I am so sure because I am not for changing my karma but a prayer at Kanchi.
When I entered Himalayan zone, I could find a change in me that my focus was only on Badhri Narayanan. The divine experience was beyond definition and I am short of words even to define to some extent. Even, I started advising others to have undiluted focus only on Badhri Narayanan, which is very much unusual. I had excellent journey for nine days.
Here only, Mahaperiyava made my pilgrimage, so comfortable by postponing my karma by 9 days. Yes! I had my paralytic stoke on 10th day, the day of departure from Himalayas. It was a 10 days program. Nine days were over. On 10th day, we have almost finished our schedule. At about 4.30 in the evening after worshipping Adibathri Narayanan, I have fainted and lost my consciousness after coming from dharshan.
Yes! I had my second stoke. My stroke may be due to my karma. But with Mahaperiyava grace, I had dharshan of Sriman Narayanan and the second stoke occurred only on the last day of my tour. What a graceful miracle. Periva fought my Karma and brought me back alive to Chennai. There was absolutely no hindrance to my entire team.
Being a vaishnavate, worshiping Badrinarayanan is one of the duties of a vaishnavate. Periva delayed my karma without causing inconvenience to anyone and also made me to discharge my divine duty. After this episode, I am not going out of my house and if at all I want to go, I should go out with an escort only and it is almost 6 years, since I have seen the outside world.
Knowing this in advance, Periva graced me for Badrinarayanan dharshan. Now I imagine, had this stoke occurred, on any day other than last day, I would not have had dharshan of Badrinarayanan and others also would have been disappointed. Without going to Badhri Narayanan, if the second stoke occurred at Chennai, then Himalaya’s trip itself would have been a mirage in the desert.
What a way Mahaperiyava shower HIS blessings towards his devotees I can confidently say that Mahaperiyava is my Badhri Narayanan.
After my dharshan at “Adhi Badhri Narayanan” temple at Himalayas, the entire team sat for some time in the temple and was discussing about nine days program. I was also participating in the discussion. While discussing with them, I felt myself that I am loosing grip on me and the entire area became dark in front of my eyes. Somehow, I tried to manage the situation but I was fainting suddenly, which I was not able to realize and I just fell on the floor like a lifeless wood.
Everyone had their shock of their life and swiftly came to normalcy. Immediately, a car was arranged and I was taken to local hospital for first aid. The local hospital doctor advised my wife that I should be taken to a bigger hospital at Utherkhant without any delay to save my life. Because another possible stoke attack may lead to dysfunction of my heart. Since the Himalayas ghat road is under army control, the local people advised us the procedure to be followed.
We were cautioned by the authorities that it is very much risky to travel during night and more over there was heavy rain which made the route very much slippery and possibility of road blocks by rocks and mud. However, we had no choice but to undertake the travel in an ambulance because the doctors advised us to reach the Utherkhant hospital at the earliest to avoid risk of further stoke and thereby endangering my life.
I was very much sure that Periva will land me safely to Utherkhant hospital. In that ghat road, the estimated journey time was approximately 12 hours. Finally, an ambulance was arranged and we started at 7.00 P.M. from Adhi Badhri Narayanan temple to Utherkhant. I was laying in the structure under semiconscious state. With grace of Mahaperiyava there were no road blocks and the route was clear.
Hell was witnessed at Himalayas:-
Every curve in that route was a hell because there was no protection in the curve and if the ambulance driver looses steering control at the hairpin bends, then we will be in the Alakananda River which is about few thousand feet down.
Imagine dark sky and nightmare silence and in that atmosphere the ambulance continuous emergency siren sounds at every hairpin bend. At some places the sky was within our arms distance and the earth was nowhere in the vicinity. Imagine the plight of the situation. Hell was witnessed by us. I personally realized the hell because I was in the ambulance stretcher.
I prayed Mahaperiyava to travel with me and I was confident that Mahaperiyava will definitely travel with me. My prayer was answered by Mahaperiyava by travelling with us and it will be very much apt to mention that I was not travelling in an ambulance but I felt and realized that I was in the lap of Maha Periva and Mahaperiyava ensured my safety like a mother.
Our ambulance reached a hill town in Utherkhant at about 7 A.M. where the hospital was located and I was admitted in the I.C.C.U in that hospital and treatment was started. The hospital doctors were ready for treatment as we have given advance information. The doctors were so nice to me and their treatment was excellent.
The doctors never hesitated to discuss with other consultants ad were very much selective in giving treatment. Their coordinated effort and treatment was of very higher order as if the treatment was V.V.I.P category. But the reality was, I am from a very simple pilgrimage team from Tamilnadu. Had Mahaperiyava not saved me in that breath taking atmosphere, my virtual cremation would have been over! I am unable to get an answer from Mahaperiyava for the series of Miracles happening in my life.
The height of the incident was, there were four more patients admitted in the same I.C.C.U along with me for stroke and other serious complaints. The care takers of those patients were discussing about their illness with me and with my wife. I was in the hospital for 48 hours and within that time; all four patients lost their life. On both the day’s morning and evening the patients were covered with white cloth and the near and dear made hue and cry and they were taken out for final rituals.
Finally I was the one left alive. The doctors were frantic in their effort to save my life and Periva yielded fruits to their efforts and answered my prayer.
Do you agree now? “Periva snatched me from the hands of Yama Dharma And saved me out from sure death”.
The criticality did not end here except the happiness that I am out of danger and saved. Just few hours before my conscious back and I became normal except my left side was paralyzed and speech was affected and there was memory loss.
But I was worried about the hospital bill. I was unable to bear that tension and because of that I was sweating profusely and my eyes became red. I enquired my wife about the balance money left with her. She replied that we had only around 50,000/- because that was the last day of our 10 days pilgrimage. My heartbeat and sweating were accelerating beyond safe limits of Medical science. By witnessing this, my wife was about to call doctors and I prevented her.
The reason for all the above tension was, we expected hospital bill was around few lakhs. Because in addition to my hospitalization in ICCU there were all kind of scans. Honestly I had no answer to reduce my tension. I had no option except my prayer to Mahaperiyava. The pain and mental agony was more than the pain due to my stroke. My wife was also worried. But she consoled me by telling me that we can request hospital authorities that we will send the bill amount, after reaching Chennai.
However, my prayer was continuing, with Mahaperiyava. But at that time I had no capacity to feel my inner voice prompting. (Mahaperiyava conversation). It all started from 25th October 2014 at 10 PM in the night at my house. I covered myself with the bed sheet and crying within myself. I was praying Mahaperiyava that,
“Periva you brought me safely to this hospital and now I have no answer for hospital bill. You could have given me this stoke ailment at Chennai, so that we would have been comfortable monetarily. You “ensured my safety but failed to answer my prayer to this hospital bill of few lakhs.”
By crying, my eyes went dry and I slept. I was fast asleep and in my dream Mahaperiyava consoled me by telling “I am there with you. I will take care”. I went in to deep sleep. After half an hour, my wife woke me up and informed me that the hospital bill is ready. I asked her how many lakhs? She answered me with glistened eyes “Your Mahaperiyava had saved you because the hospital bill is Rs. 5/- (rupees five only).
I did not know how to react to this unbelievable bill of Rs.5/- Except to fill the divine occasion of Mahaperiyava with my tears.
I thanked Mahaperiyava and washed Mahaperiyava LOTUS FEET with my tears. I humbly prayed Mahaperiyava to give me utmost humbleness is to withstand the entire miracle spell in my life. Normally miracle happens once in a life time. Miracle in Life becomes the order of the day.
The reason for such a low value bill:- The hospital is a Government run hospital and hence such a low bill. But no one can believe that the hospital is govt run hospital because the ambience and medical comforts was comparable to the corporate hospitals. Even in Govt hospital ,can anyone imagine a bill of Rs.5/- Mahaperiyava choreographed everything right from Bhadrinath to hospital .In the air craft all crew members and hostess were very kind to till I reach Chennai.
Mahaperiyava is Omnipotent, Mahaperiyava is Omnipresent, Mahaperiyava is Omniscient.
Hara Hara Shankara Jaya Jaya Shankara
