Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara – The incident below happened to Adiyen which I shared with Shri Mahesh when it was happening live. He asked me to share it in the blog so readers can experience Periayva’s leela as well. Please note, this is all about our Periyava’s anugraham and divine play in making things happen….Rama Rama
Rescuing a native breed Gho matha from the jaws of death
Few days back, by Sri Periyavas grace managed to rescue a cow just in time. The butcher had negotiated a rate and the cow was ready to be taken to abbatoir. The cow was pregnant and was run over on her backside by a lorry. Her back ribs were broken/dislocated. She could not walk, felt very insecure and hid herself in thorny bushes to protect herself when the owner found her there. He decided not to spend any money on treatment and decided to sell her off for slaughter. One of my cow contacts in the area tipped me about this. Met with the guy, had a tough negotiation for three days who is a heavy drunkard and kept going back on his words. Finally, with HIS grace forced the issue and bought the cow from him.
The place where the cow hid herself gets very dark in the night with zero lights so had to get her out of the bushes that evening itself. I also saw snakes in that area so it was not safe for the cow to spend one more night there. She also did not have food or water for the last three days and confined herself in isolation due to fear. The cow could not stand up, after a lot of struggle lifted the cow from thorny bushes and transported her to the Sri Gokula Krishna Gosala in Uttukottai near Thiruvallur. By the time we boarded her on the truck it was around 7.30 pm. Since it takes little over two hours from my place to the Gosala, the driver/helpers were hungry and wanted to have dinner. So we stopped at a roadside restaurant where I used to take the drivers during the previous rescues as well. However this time, given the condition of the cow, I was a bit jittery and wanted to reach the Gosala asap. While they were eating, I was anxiously waiting near the billing counter and suddenly Maha Periyava’s picture flashed in front of me in the wall of the billing counter. Given that I have been to this restaurant many a times, this is the first time I’m seeing his picture that too in the middle wall of the billing counter (above is that picture). Given the restaurant and its ambience, I was really amazed in seeing this and it gave me goosebumps; felt very confident and my nervousness vanished thereafter. Reached the Gosala safely where the cow is presently residing, undergoing treatment and is recovering.
On a sidenote, the very next day early morning the butchers came with the truck to pickup the cow from the bushes (where the cow hid herself previously) as they were misinformed on the sale by the drunkard owner. They searched for the cow and left the place in disappointment. This was seen and told by my trusted contact who supplies milk in the area.
The above incident shows one thing. If you take one step in following Periyava’s teachings HE takes 100 steps towards you and ensures the mission is fulfilled.
Finally, as Mahesh mentioned in the official fundraiser post couple of months back our target was to save at least two cows per month. Unfortunately, we do NOT have funds to even save one cow for the entire year. There are 8000+ followers in this blog. Request all to contribute a little mite so we can save a few divine lives, a cause that our Periyavas cares so much for. As always, we will provide all the visibility and transparency of all the rescues that are happening. All we can do is ask and the rest is up-to you. Account details are in the post HERE.
Please mention ‘Cow Rescue’ in the notes so we can use it for this noble cause.
Sri Periyava Thiruvadi Sharanam. Rama Rama
