What is Trikarana Suddhi?
MahaPeriyavaa Swamigal explains to HIS students (us).
That day the exam results were out and Swamigal was asking the students about the results and their marks in each of the subjects.
He suddenly turned and asked ‘I have a question for you all. If you get 90% in Physics, 60% in Chemistry and 20% in Maths, can you be considered to have passed the exams?’
The answer was a resounding no.
Swamigal asked ‘Why ?’
The students started explaining the exam rules to the Divine Chancellor. ‘Swamigal you need to pass all the three subjects to clear the exams ‘.
Swamigal smiled and said ‘Is that so? Suppose you are very good in actions and get 90%. In your speech also you are good and hence get 60%. But you are weak in thoughts and get only 20%. Can you be considered to have passed in God’s exams?’.
There was pin-drop silence in the hall. Swamigal continued ‘just as you cannot pass your academic exams without passing in all the subjects, you cannot also pass in God’s exam without doing well in Thoughts, Words and Deeds.’
He added ‘This is essentially trikarana shuddi the stepping stone on making ourselves step on to the journey to reach Supreme”.
