You drink the orange juice and your sister will get well!

Thanks Suresh P for the article….


On 10.10.57, I was to leave for Poona to join duty in Defence Accounts Department as an Upper Division Clerk. It was by chance I came to know that Paramacharya was camping at Ramakrishnapuram in West Mambalam in Madras. I was dressed in pant and shirt. I just took a chance and on 9.10.57 I went for darshan. I removed my shirt and did ‘Pranam’. I proceeded to Pune with His blessings. Now I have retired as a Class I Officer.

During 1968 my sister was in a very serious condition and had been admitted in the Tanjore Medical Hospital. On my way back from Tanjore to Poona, I went to have the darshan of Paramacharya, Who was observing silence. Through His assistants I handed over some fruits as homage and told Him about my sister’s plight.

Paramacharya took one orange and asked me to give it to my sister. When I told Him that I was not going back to Tanjore He asked me to make juice of the orange and drink it for the welfare of my sister!

On reaching Poona I got a letter saying my sister was better and was being discharged from the hospital. This was a surprise as on the day I left Tanjore, the doctors never gave any hope about her life!

In 1985 when I was entering my 50th year, I had the darshan of Paramacharya along with my wife and my mother-in-law. My wife’s grandfather, Navaneetham Sarangapani Iyengar, Advocate of Kalyanapuram was a trusted devotee of Paramacharya in Kumbhakonam Matha in the 20’s.

When my wife just mentioned his name, there was a pause!

Then to our surprise, He called her and narrated many instances involving Sarangapani Iyengar and enquired about everyone and blessed us. This really is a surprise as Paramacharya has thousands of devotees and to remember one after a lapse of 50 years is something hard to believe!

  3. Sir, nothing is hard to believe when the matter is about Maha Periva. HE was (why still HE is) beyond time and matter. Incomparable and peerless HE is. You are one of the great blessed souls.
