Mahaperiyava is pratyaksham – this is not some statement we loosely use just to impress someone. Everywhere there are so many incidents that are happening that are beyond human comprehension. The latest viral thing that is going on in social media – Sankarapuram Periyava. The kind of unexpected turns of events and the kind of miracles He has been doing is quite amazing. The trip turned into a journey of a lifetime!
I listened to one samaveda vadhyar giving a 2 mts interview of his experience who came to have darshan of Sankarapuram Periyava. I am unable to find that audio from that group – if someone could send me that audio – i can post…His son had a dream and next day he mentioned to his father about the dream that one thatha came in the dream but he was not able to clearly tell who came. After some hours, he accidentally saw mahaperiyava’s photo and he said that was the thatha who came in the dream. So our Srowthigal mama talked to someone and he was suggested to start the anusha puja. Given the fact that srowthigal mama’s living itself is dependent on prohitam, he was not able to spend much for anusham. From that point onwards till today, rain or shine, he would somehow get some work that would get him roughly Rs 10,000 – just enough to conduct anusham. It started off with few people and now more and more people are attending. In that interview, srowthigal mama was unable to speak – he is in tears and choking….No science can explain this!
Periyava’s blessings to such devotees via such miracles only shows two things (1) devotees’ true bakthi (2) Periyava’s grace to bless not just that devotee but all devotees in that place.
While I have posted hundreds of articles like this, I have not experienced very many incidents in my personal life until this bhogi. Ok – now it is getting interesting, right?!
On bhogi (Jan 13th), I finished my morning puja as usual and I usually keep one flower on Periyava’s siras and one His holy foot of the Periyava Vigraham. This is my daily routine. On that day, I did the same and left outside and got busy. I kept the flower on His siras so that the flower is facing us and the stem is facing the wall behind. At night, I go back to the puja room to give Him hot milk, say good night and all the usual stuff. Normally, the flowers I keep either stay on the feet or head or they fall on the floor. Here, I noticed that the flower is in a position where the stem is facing the roof! I was surprised and bit scared too. I wanted to eliminate the possibilities of any natural process or any human part to this. I asked my wife and my son and they both didn’t touch the flower and they in fact didn’t even notice the flower etc. First I took a photo of the flower before I did anything. Later, I took that flower, tried different positions to explore how this could have happened. Given that small area on His head of the vigraham, there is no way that this could have happened based on our known theories. Then I also took a photo of keeping the flower in the way I kept it and took a photo. I didn’t know how to interpret this . I talked to someone whom I trust on these matters and could give better interpretations. He was confirming that Periyava is just telling all of us that He is pratyaksham in Chicago and accepting / approving our prayers. This may be a small/ordinary incident for others but for me and my family – this is something huge! Something that we feel truly blessed. In my case, He probably did this to get some bakthi into my head. I dont know if there any other interpretations.
Chicago Periyava is here to bless everyone – not just for my family alone. Come, sit in front of Him, pray and offer your neivedhyams to Him and receive His blessings.
Thanks to Balaji for helping me with tweaking the photo.
Hara Hara Sankara Jaya Jaya Sankara!
