Finally, the navarathiri celebration is over. I am sure all of you had a very divine 9 days of worship of Goddess Durga Parameshwari. Personally speaking, it was very hectic and tiring 9 days due to all additional parayanam, puja etc. Still all quite enjoyable and very satisfying navarathiri days.
When families visited our place, they brought their parents/in-laws who are visiting them from India. For them, walking into our place and seeing Mahaperiyava was the pleasant surprise for them. The moment they see Periyava they literally run towards the room as if a calf run towards its mother. For me, it was wonderful to listen to their experiences with Mahaswami – they don’t have to be very long and magical experiences – many of them are very normal ones of their parents/grand-parents taking them to Kanchipuram for Periyava darshanam and Periyava blessing them etc. All say only one thing in common “our whole life is Periyava’s pitchai” – how true!
Our namaskaram to Mahaperiyava for blessing us with a peaceful Navarathiri!
