Experiences with Maha Periyava: There Will be a Large number of Guests Today!
Sri Maha Periyava was travelling around the Akanda Kaveri region. One day He went to the coconut groves near the camping site. A number of crows were seen on the tops of the coconut trees.
Periyava asked a boy who accompanied Him, “Shall I ask these crows to caw?”
The boy did not know what to answer.
“Look here”, Periyava said and started cawing like the crows. All the crows echoed His cry in a chorus.
Periyava said, “Now the crows are cawing. It indicates that there will be a large number of guests today. Ask them to prepare lots of food.”
The shishyas (assistants) were apprehensive that the food-preparations might go waste if they cooked a lot.
But then, what a wonder! It came to be known shortly that a meeting of the Congress Party was held in the nearby place. People who attended it came to know of Sri Maha Periyava’s camp nearby and came over to have His darshan.
Periyava directed everyone to have food and go. Finally, not a handful of cooked rice remained!
