Prasadam from Periyava
Sri Periyava is like a “Kulaguru” for many families. One such couple devoted to Sri Periyava lived in Delhi.
The wife had some health issues. She could not retain any food that she ate. Immediately she would vomit. One day, she tried taking liquid food and she vomited that also and fainted. The husband got worried and admitted her in the nearby hospital.
She was kept in ICU the whole night. Next day, a very sincere doctor checked her and said to the husband “There is nothing wrong with your wife’s health. If you say here, these people will do various tests unnecessarily for the sake of earning more money. So better discharge her now and take her home”. After finishing the discharge formalities, the husband went to see his wife.
She told her husband that the previous day, as soon as she fainted, she felt like Periyava was standing in front of her and telling her “You will become alright soon. From tomorrow after brushing teeth, keep some vibuthi in one vilva leaf and eat. Do this for 45 days and you will become alright”. She informed her husband that she wanted to follow Periyava’s advice even though it was in a dream.
From next day, she started eating vilva leaf with vibhuthi every day. She felt so much better that she had totally forgotten the word “vomit”.
But on 43rd day, she completely forgot about vilvam and drank coffee. That was it. That evening, the moment her husband entered home, she started throwing up and this time, there was some blood as well. Shocked by this, the husband took her to doctor again to check for TB. At the same he was praying “Swami! By mistake she drank coffee while two more days were left to complete the 45 day course. Please forgive her and save her”. To his comfort, the Doctor said there was no TB and she was just anemic.
When the husband entered home that evening, he was very surprised to see his wife who was very energetic and sounded very happy.
She narrated “This afternoon, the next door mami came to see me. It seems after her son’s wedding in Madras, she went to Ilayathangudi to have Periyava’s darshan. That time, mami told Periyava about my health issues and requested for his blessings.
Listening to her request, Periyava asked “Is she your friend? Very kind and helpful is it? Vomitting frequently? Don’t worry. She will be alright soon” and gave her prasadam. Without opening it, mami brought it and gave it to me today. Can you guess what prasadam could it be?”
Husband said “Is it kalkandu, drakshai, kungumam, vibhuthi”. “No” replied the wife and she showed him the prasadam. There were exactly two vilvam leaves which she had forgotten to take. They both were overwhelmed by the Mahan’s kindness. Only true Mahans can perform such miracles.
Indeed we are all very lucky and blessed to live at the same time as Periyava.
We are all blessed to have his darshan and listen to his words of wisdom.
Kamakoti darshanam adds merits to manusha janmam. Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara.
