Give me the Sandal Paste….

Many Jaya Jaya Sankara to Shri. Ramani for the share. Rama Rama

Experiences of Maha Periyava: Even if the heart is weak some people might still live up to a 100 years!

Kanchi MahaSwamigal was once camped at Nazarathpet near Madras in the year 1959. As He needed sandal paste for His puja, He called a kaingaryam person named Ramamurthy and asked him to grind the sandal paste.

That same day he ground sandal paste and gave for puja, but Ramamurthy felt some uneasiness in his heart in the evening. He rushed to a doctor and got his health checked.

The doctor said after his tests, “Your heart is weak. You should not carry heavy weights or do strenuous work, especially something like grinding sandal paste.”

Ramamurthy came back to Swamigal and told Him about his health condition. As the sandal paste was needed on the next day too, the Mahan called him and gave the work.

Swamigal told him, Chandramouleeswara will take care of everything. You grind and give me the sandal paste!”

Unable to disobey Swamigal’s words, Ramamurthy ground and gave the sandal paste. Again he felt uneasiness in the heart and told Periyava what the doctor had said.

“It would be dangerous only if it is a heart attack. If the heart is weak some people might live even up to a hundred years. You do your work, don’t be afraid!” said the Mahan.

Were those not the words of God?

Thereafter Ramamurthy had the bhagyam of grinding sandal paste for the Mahan’s puja for a long time. No such uneasiness of heart ever raised its head on those occasions!
