Experiences with Maha Periyava: Malevolent Forces destroyed
A malevolent force, invisible of course, possessed a woman and tortured her. If she sat down, it would press down upon her shoulders. If she attempted to run, it would follow her chasing her all the way. At night, the lady could not sleep. It would slap the lady and wake her up, shouting into her ears. The lady would sit up screaming in fear. No exorcist or wizard could relieve the lady from the grips of the spirit.
Ramanathan, the lady’s elder brother came to Sri Maha Periyava and prayed for His grace. Periyava gave him sacred ash and kumkum. No matter how hard everyone tried, it was not possible to apply the sacred ash on the lady’s forehead. She would not let anyone approach her. She would take to her heels the moment someone attempted to reach her. Ramanathan came back to Periyava.
Periyava gave an esoteric design that had been carved on a tiny strip of metal and placed inside an amulet. Somehow Ramanathan managed to tie it around the lady’s neck. From that very moment the lady recovered speedily and came back to normal.
She said joyously, “I feel as if a huge mountain that was pressing upon my head has been removed”. Of course, the sequel to the story is that the lady lived a healthy and happy married life and was blessed with children.
Lord Shiva is the lord of ghosts and ghouls. So too our Aacharya!
