A reminder on the Paduka Puja Vaibhavam to be held on Sunday, August 21. An anecdote is being given here to become aware of the Divinity of Mahaperiyava’s Paduka.
One of the personal assistants of Mahaperiyava was Sri Balu Mama who embraced sanyasa few years ago and attained Mahasamadhi recently. He was one of the few people who had the opportunity to touch Mahaperiyava during the few years from 1991 to 1994 when He played a drama of not moving around and being confined to the bed itself. Even though Balu Swamigal was blessed with such an opportunity, he would hesitate to touch Periyava’s Paduka and would say “while I don’t hesitate to touch Periyava, I am extremely fearful and hesitant to even touch His Paduka.” Such is the Divinity of the Paduka. We all know that only a few blessed devotees were fortunate to be graced with these Divine Paduka. And several such Padukas are going to be offered a grand worship on Sunday. You can not only have the Darshan of these Paduka but also offer worship to them. Please come and participate in the puja and be blessed with the rare opportunity of having the Darshan of the Divine Paduka that have been adorned by the Avatara Purusha who walked amidst us to uplift us! Also you can hear to moving instances of how devotees were blessed with the Paduka. Please don’t miss this unique event and be in traditional attire to participate and witness the celebration!
