A Demanding Rescue: Periyava’s Astonishing Anugraham on 126th Jayanthi Day – Saved an Injured Cow along with 3 More Cows and a Rishabam

Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara – With the last few weekends pretty hectic, I wanted to stay clear on this Maha Anusham and 126th Maha Periyava Jayanthi by doing Puja and being in Periyava Smaranam for the entire day. However the man upstairs had other ideas. Prior to Jayanthi/Anusham day I got a message from my cow contacts that a few lives are in danger and needed to be saved ASAP. I went to Puja room, did a Sashtanga Namaskaram to Periyava and started preparing for the rescue (I will share a checklist for the rescue in a separate post).

There were three Cows and one rishabam that needed to be saved. Two cows have stopped milking which the owner wanted to sell along with a cute rishabam as well. As I had mentioned in my previous post, this month is not good at all for the cows or any other animals for that matter. In my area I see brokers working in full swing to make their commissions. By Periyava’s grace, blocked the sale late in the night, purchased the cows very early next day morning and dropped off the cows in Cowpathy Gosala near Thiruvalangadu, close to Arakonam. The plan was to start by around 4 AM on Sunday morning and be back around noon.

Periyava’s astonishing Anugraham to an Injured Cow

Enroute to Thiruvalangadu Gosala near a small junction, seeing our truck with four cows, an auto driver stopped me and asked if I can accommodate another cow which was badly injured and could not get up. He said the cow fell into a small pit while grazing in one of the farm lands few kilometers away from that place. I told him our truck is full now, and assured him we will drop off the cows in the gosala and come back and pick this injured cow. Concurrently, the owner of the injured cow who is the friend of the auto driver also had called the slaughter house guy to come and pick up this cow. After my assurance that I will pick the cow up (of course for a price!!) in another hour they held off the sale to the slaughter men. Note that my truck driver was hungry and wanted to take a break. I held him off saying we will drop off the cows so the cows are not standing in scorching heat while he is having food. If we had stopped for lunch we would have never met the auto driver at all and the cow would have gone long back. See Periyava’s Maha anugraham here.

We dropped the existing cows off in the Gosala, came back, accompanied the auto driver and picked up the injured cow few kms away which was in the middle of a farm land. Unfortunately, the surrounding paddy fields where the cow lied down were a bit soggy (due to cultivation) meaning our truck could no way get near the cow and had to be parked at-least 300 meters away. It was around 1 PM and with Agni Nakshathiram it was blistering for the cow and us to be standing in middle of a paddy field figuring out a way to get her inside our truck.

Finally, we got a few thick wooden sticks and a few men to help us out. Together we all lifted the cow, covered the 300+ meters by carrying her and put her in our truck. To cool her down, we also poured couple of buckets of water so she is not fried till we reached the Gosala which was around 25 kms away. I was also wondering why Periyava saved this cow since if an cow’s pelvis/leg is injured and if it cannot get up it is a matter of time before the cow passes away. I decided not to think any further since HE saved the cow out of the blue on HIS jayanthi day HE will take care of it. In the scorching heat with no roof on the rear of the truck for the cow we rushed her to the Gosala, lifted her again and put her in a special stand, called for the Naatu doctor to diagnose and treat her. Fortunately, her injuries though serious, was not fatal (few minor fractures and bruises). She started responding well to the treatment and is recovering now. Doesn’t this one incident show the grace and omnipresence of our Periyava? Though it was a physically and emotionally draining exercise my mind was fulfilled that Periyava showed us a way to save five divine lives on that day, especially the last injured cow that came from nowhere being the biggest highlight of this rescue. Please see the pictures/clips below that shows Periyava’s divine grace all the way.

  2. This is the most suited MahaPeriava jayanthi celebration, Dear Sai! I would even appeal to all those who celebrate His Jayanthi in a pompous manner, should limit their celebrations to a simple Puja to Him and donate the rest of the money to such noble causes like this, and Vedha Rakshanam, Annadhanam etc. MahaPeriava would be more pleased this way.

  3. Exemplary. This is Mahaperiyawa,s maha anugraham. You are all really blessed.
