ஹரி நாராயண துரித நிவாரண பரமானந்த சதாசிவ சங்கர

Sri Nochur Venkataraman in his bagavatham upanyasam always quote Periyava always had a complaint. His complaint was “so many devotees come and ask for my blessings for marriage, promotion, job transfer, health problem  – constantly, at all times. But I hardly see anyone asking my blessings for atma gnanam”. He has always been blessings for real seekers. This incident is one such incident….He is always an avyaja karuna moorthy!

அலுவலகத்தில் வேலை பார்க்கும் பெண்மணி ஒருவர் பெரியவாள் தரிசனத்துக்கு வந்தார். இந்நாளையப் பெண்மணியாக இருந்தாலும், உள்ளூர பக்தி இருந்தது. சமயச் சடங்குகளையும் மந்திர தோத்திரங்களையும் முறையாகப் பெற்றுக் கொண்டு அனுஷ்டிக்க முடியவில்லையே என்ற தாபம் இருந்தது.

மனமுருகப் பெரியவாளிடம் பிரார்த்தித்துக் கொண்டார்.

“நான் வேலைக்குப் போகிறவள். எனக்கு ஓய்வு நேரம் குறைவு.அத்துடன் மடி,ஆசாரம் என்றெல்லாம்
கண்டிப்புடன் இருக்க முடியாது. நீளமான ஸ்தோத்திரங்கள், பாராயணம் செய்யவும் இயலாது.
ஆனால், ஏதாவது சுலபமான மந்த்ரஜபம் செய்ய வேண்டுமென்ற ஆசை இருக்கிறது. பெரியவாள்
அனுக்ரஹம் பண்ணணும்.”

உடனே கருணாமூர்த்தியான பெரியவாள், அந்தப் பெண்மணியின் உள்ளுணர்வையும்,சிரத்தையையும்
புரிந்துகொண்டு, “சொல்லு…” என்றார்கள்.

ஹரி நாராயண துரித நிவாரண பரமானந்த சதாசிவ சங்கர

உபதேசம் பெற்ற அம்மங்கையர்க்கரசி, மனமகிழ்ந்து, பெரியவாளுக்கு நமஸ்காரம் செய்தார்.

‘ஆசார அனுஷ்டானமில்லாத உனக்கெல்லாம், மந்த்ரோபதேசம் என்ன வேண்டியிருக்கு?’
என்ற கடிய சொற்களை எதிர்பார்த்து வந்தவருக்கு, கனிவான உபதேசத்தால் நெகிழ்ந்தே போனார்.

ஆனால், இந்த மந்திரம் அந்தப் பெண்ணுக்கு மட்டும் அளிக்கப்பட்ட உபதேசம் அல்ல; நம் அத்தனை பேருக்கும்தான்!

  1. serving the mankind with compassion & love – maha periyava

  2. This mantra is a part of Thodaya Mangalam ….Hario Narayana…..

    In this context, I once pointed in one of the despatches….an incident in Satara…where HH Sri Maha Periyava was camping for over a year , around 1982. I was watching the conversations between Maha Periyava and
    the Bhaktaas…standing close by. and enjoying. One Vakil mama evidently , known well to Periyava was conversing
    with Maha Periyava. Periyava was enquiring personal questions about Vakil’s family, children etc..
    From the conversation, I infered, that this Vakil had taken up a case of Priests in the Cour earlier t and won too.
    HH was enqiring another such case pending in court…Vakil was telling, it was not strong…HH asked how
    he wond the other case. Vakil said, it ws not because of his own talents but with Periyva anugraham.
    Periyava said with a smile, “who said. my anugraham is not htere for this case…It is there paripoornama..
    You fight the csse.” with confidence. The conversation reverted at personal level. HH asked whether he is happy in Life and whether there are any wants….Vakil said, all his children are well placed. He is happy with hsis profession, there is good income, no wants. HH with a smile , told him to tell , if he wants anything else.
    Vakil, prostrated before him,, ‘Nothing Per iyva, onga anugrahaathile ellam paripoornama irukku”ATMA GNANAM THAAN VENUM, ANUGRAHAM PANNUNGO” HH asked the VAkil, how much you are charging
    for the case, which he has taken up , for the common cause of the priests… (dont know if it related to
    Chidambaram ) He said, it is only nominal….not much. HH cornered him, you say you are getting
    good income, your children are well placed.. Why dont you fight this case, free, why should you charge
    even nominal…..THEN YOU WILL GET ATMA GNANAM”. i
    I dont remember the name of the Vakil, perhaps the matam related people may be knowing..
    This conversation is so green in my memories, as many othere conversations, and episodes.//Vedanarayanan Kamala..Pune.

  3. English version:
    A lady who was working, came to see Periava. Though a lady of present times, she had inner bhakthi. She had an honest anguish that she could not practice the religious rituals and recite the mantras after proper initiation . She expressed before Periava that since she is going for job, her time is limited for recitation of long slokas etc. and also follow the ‘aachara’ approach . She wanted Periava to bless her with an easy mantra japa. The Compassionate Periava could sense the lady’s mind and told her to recite –
    The lady was too overwhelmed to receive this Upadesa, as she had expected some harsh response like ‘if you cannot follow the religious practices, why need such upadesa?’

    This mantra is not only for that lady but for all of us.

  4. “ஹரி நாராயண துரித நிவாரண பரமானந்த சதாசிவ சங்கர” Maha Upadesam by Gurunathar to all devotees! அம் பகவ: is another Manthra given by Maha Periyava to all devotees! Hara Hara Shankara, Jaya Jaya Shankara!

  5. We are blessed by the sloka through your excellent contribution in this blog Sri Mahesh Garu…. we are indebted indeed to you for this….

  6. English translation please

  7. ஸ்ரீ பெரியவா சரணம் Sri Periyava Saranam

  8. Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara. True . The upadesam is for all of us because we are also like the lady having no time to recite long strothras besides anacharam. We can take this as a lagu stotram which has come from the mouth of Sri Maha Periyava and it will surely yeild good and wanted results for us. Janakiraman. Nagapattinam.
