Experiences with Maha Periyava: In the Protection of Kanyakurichi Amman
A gentleman came from Pattukottai for Sri Maha Periyava’s darshan.
“I bought a new car. From the time I got it, there have been many accidents. I sought the advice of astrologers and performed a number of expiatory rites. Nothing has helped.”
Periyava was silent for a while. Then he asked the gentleman a question, “Is there a village called Kanyakurichi near your town?”
The gentleman was taken aback.
“There is a Mahamaya temple there… very powerful deity. Send fifty rupees for abhishekha to be performed to the Ambal (Goddess) there. Have the words, ‘In the Protection of Kanyakurichi Amman,’ painted on the front side of your car.”
The gentleman was dumbfounded. Recovering himself he said, “Kanyakurichi Amman is the deity worshipped by our family. My father and mother would visit that temple every year. They would have abhishekha performed for the deity. The children in our family would be tonsured there. Somehow in course of time we have forgotten all this. Now it is my good fortune that Periyava has reminded me.”
There were no further mishaps in that car. After all, it was Mahamaya who was protecting the vehicle.
