Periyava’s love for others

On most of the occasions, the impact of Periyava’s love for others is not revealed openly by Him. Once Sri Saranar, deviated from that, and openly directed Sri Matam Balu Mama to do some thing. Sri Balu Mama narrates this incident:

While camping at Sholapur, one evening, He called Balu Mama and said. ” ….go to his house, take his daughter and leave her in her husband’s home…”

Balu Mama was stunned!

That particular person whom Periava mentioned was a staunch devotee of Periyava, and belonged to the Vysya community; a large family, and his daughter had come back from her husband’s home due to difference of opinion and had been living with her parents, since. But nobody seems to have informed Periyava about this, and still He gave such an instruction!

‘What is this strange order? Can we interfere in some one’s family matter, and take his daughter and leave her in her husband’s house ? Is it proper?’ thought Balu Mama. Although His attendants obeyed some of Periyava’s strange orders without asking questions, Balu Mama hesitated at this one!

Realizing his predicament and to support him, Periyava said, “take Brahmachari Ramakrishnan also with you and go…”

They went to that house and informed him of His instructions to them..

They started crying after hearing this! It was akin to nurturing a parrot and feeding it to the cat.

But, because of their faith and love in Periyava, they cleared their mind. They realized that there must be some meaning in it if Periyava Himself, instructed them that way. They agreed to send their daughter with them.

The lady was as hesitant to go to her husband’s house as the attendants were, when they came to her parents’ house! However, she left immediately as it was Periyava’s instruction.

Not knowing what the outcome would be there, the trio went to her husband’s home.

Did they have a pleasant surprise, when they were welcomed there with joy!

Her husband received her happily and promised to have her there.

What Power could achieve this happy re-union, but Periyava’s Power of Love?

  3. An Urgent Appeal for GoShala:
    Dear All: I am a deekshidar from Chidambaram Temple. Along with my father and younger brother, I am running a goshala where we mostly take care of cows that are old. We have about 90 cows currently. We are running this in a small village very close to Chidambaram.

    But recently we have asked to vacate the place.

    Fortunately a devotee has agreed to give us a 1.5 acre land (about 5 kms from the temple) to run the go shala. We need to shift all our cows to this new place.

    Moving to the new place requires a lot of work to get the place ready. We need to make arrangements for a small pond, have at least 2-3 bore wells for water, get electricity supply, install a shed for the cows, put up a fence around the land etc. Just doing the bare minimum will involve expenses of atleast Rs 15 lakhs.
    We do not have any source of funds except some contributions from devotees. That was just about enough to take care of the daily food and other expenses for the cows. But we have no money at all to organize this move to a new location.

    We humbly request all devotees to contribute to this noble cause. The blessings of Gomatha will be with you and your families always bringing all prosperity and joy in your lives.

    You can make your donation to AMMA ILLAM TRUST. Please see this website for details –

    You can also call me anytime. My name is Raja Parameswara Deekshidar – 9345743584
    You can also speak to my brother Ananda Nataraja Deekshidar – 9698648840
    Request all devotees to come to Chidambaram. You can have darshan of Lord Nataraja and Sivakami Amman and also come and see the go shala.
    This is an earnest appeal for help so that we can continue to take care of the 90 cows.

    • To Shri Raja Parameshwara Deekshitar:

      Please submit your bank details, including IFSC code, for sending cash donation via bank transfer. Thank you.


      • To Shri Raja Parameshawara Deekshitar,

    • I am deeply touched by this episode of HH Periyavaa’s kindness.

      Can you do me a favor please?

      The photograph above reminds me of HH Periyavaa’s stay at Mr C Ramachandran’s home known as “Sri Rama” at Tondiarpet Chennai. It was also the official location of the North Madras Asthika Sabha:

      During years 1957-61 (?) HH Periyavaa’s month long stay and puja, daily was conducted here and if that photo is from that same location in chennai can you please give more details ? I am very keen to view more photographs during stay of HH Periyavaa but not able to have the luck to relive my days of pure bliss daily to have darshana of Periyavaa !

      Can someone help me please with photos during above mentioned period of HH Periyavaa’s stay at “North Madras Asthika Sabha” Tondiarpet Chennai ?
      thanking you
      MC Mani
