I want to pass away Peacefully!


Jaya Jaya Shankara Hara Hara Shankara – Whom else can we ask all these wishes to be fulfilled than Sri Periyava who is Sakshath Sarveswaran? Thanks to Shri Mani for the Whatsapp share. Thanks to Smt. Rashmi Shekar for the translation. Ram Ram

எனக்கு அநாயாச மரணம் கிடைக்கணும்!

அறுபது வயதைத் தாண்டிய பக்தர்.

“எனக்கு அநாயாச மரணம் கிடைக்கணும்” என்று பெரியவாளிடம் விண்ணப்பித்துக் கொண்டார்.

அநாயாஸ மரணம் என்றால், நோய்வாய்ப்பட்டு, பல நாட்கள் படுக்கையில் கிடந்து குடும்பத்தில் உள்ளவர்களுக்கெல்லாம் துன்பம் கொடுத்து, பின் ஒருவழியாகப் போய்ச் சேர்வது என்றில்லாமல், சட்டென்று உயிர் போய்விடுவது என்பதாகும்.

“நீங்க தினமும் பூஜை செய்து முடிக்கும்போது சொல்கிற பிரார்த்தனை சுலோகம் – “அநாயேஸேன மரணம் விநா தைன்யேன ஜீவநம்! தேஹி மே க்ருபயா சம்போ த்வயி பக்திம் அசஞ்சலாம்!!”

இதைச் சொல்லிவிட்டு த்ரயம்பக மந்திரம் சொல்லிண்டிருங்கோ..” என்றார் பெரியவாள்.

பக்தர் பிரசாதம் பெற்றுக்கொண்டு காஞ்சிபுரத்தில் அவர் தங்கியிருந்த அறைக்குப் போய் கதவைத் திறந்து, நாற்காலியில் உட்காரும் வரை பெரியவாளுடைய ஆக்ஞைப்படி நடந்து கொண்டார்.

அடுத்த விநாடி, அவர் நாற்காலியில் சாய்ந்து விட்டார். அவர் விரும்பியபடி ‘அநாயாஸமாக’ப் போய்ச் சேர்ந்துவிட்டார்.
A sexagenarian devotee asked Periyava for an easy and peaceful death.

An easy and peaceful death means when, neither the person is bedridden and suffers for a long time nor the family members are troubled during someone’s last days. Death occurs easily without any pain and suffering.

Every day at the end of our prayer we must recite the “ANAYASA MANTRA” followed by the triambaka mantra told Periyava.

anaayaasena maraNam.
vinaa dynyena jeevanam
dehi mey krupayaa shambho
Thvayee bhakthim achanchalaam

The devotee received prasadam from Periyava and returned to his room at Kanchipuram. He followed Periyava’s advice until he opened the door and sat on the chair.

The very next second he collapsed on the chair. That’s it, as he wished he had an easy and peaceful death.

  1. Please replace “maranam” with “Sayoojyam” in the slokam as somewhere I read an anecdote in which Periyava suggested this change. You don’t want merely an easy death, you also want to escape the cycle of birth and death.

  2. True. HH Mahaperiva, through His arduous penance secured so much for the welfare of His devotees and became one with Sarveswaran, that He is Mokshakarakar. I strongly believe that by His grace matched by our deep reverence and faith in Him, the person constantly reciting this, would get salvation. Sathyam.

  3. what a baghyam that aged devotee got from MAHAPERIVA!Iif one recites this sloka constantly as advised by MAHAPERIVA he|she is sure to get painless death with MAHAPERIVA’S anugraham.MAHAPERIVA TIRUVADIGALE CHARANAM.

  4. We do not know when one’s end will come. It is all decided by Bhrama. But if one recites the sloka, as advised by Mahaperiava, it is certain that end will be smooth. For this also Mahaperiava’s anugrahams are required. Hara Hara Shankara Jaya Jaya Shankara.

  5. MY ma breathed her last peacefully without any problem either for her or for her children at the age of 93, She was sleeping in the bed. I woke her up to give milk as she was thirsty. That was the last bit of milk that entered her body. Long live my ma and everyone of us.

  6. Can this sloka be recited by anybody as part of their daily pooja or this needs to be recited only by people above certain age. Please forgive me for my ignorance in asking such a question but I would like to understand who can recite this.

  7. A wonderful narration of a sublime experience of death.
    But I remember to have read elsewhere when Maha Periyava described Anaayasa Maranam as freedom from the fear of death.
    But I am unable to recollect the source.
    If anyone has information on this subject cam they share ?

  8. Would be grateful if you could please replace the mantra typed above with this, so people can read it more accurately.

    anaayaasena maraNam.
    vinaa dynyena jeevanam
    dehi mey krupayaa shambho
    Thvayee bhakthim achanchalaam

    Thanks very much to the translation volunteers, without whose efforts, Non-Tamil readers would lose out on such treasures.


  9. What a krupa towards that Bhaka? Shambo Shanra!

  10. Hara Hara Shankara, Jaya Jaya Shankara!
