Miracles of Mahaperiyava..Justice Kailasam

On the 5th April 2018 Anusham Programme,we celeberated the 32nd Anusham Programme At Shenbagm Estate,Madampatti with His benign Bountiful Blessings..

Sincere  Subramanian Sastri

Once Swami Vivekananda was asked by an Atheist:”What happens when one Doesn’t Believe in God?’

Swami Vivekananda countered him with a fitting Reply:”Those who have Faith can feel His Presence in Everything Good happening around them!Those who don’t will attribute everything -ve around them to His absence,thereby wasting their Life on -ve things!”

True Words..since I started this Anusham Program, casually in Madampatti, I didn’t expect such a +ve change in me and around me!Faith in God gives purpose and Meaning to Humanlife!

I recalled a Miracle experience of Mrs.Kailasam,wife of Supreme Court Judge ,Kailasam, who retired in the 80s.Kailasams were ardent devotees of Mahaperiyava. In 1993 there was a Photo exhibition of Mahaperiyava in Eros thetre,LBRoad,Adyar as part of Mahaperiyava’s Sathabdi Celebrations.Sri Jayendrar inaugurated and there  were many prominent Speakers including Soundara Kailasam, Vanathi Thirunavukkarasu,MD of IOB which sponsored the program!

Mrs.Kailasam, wife of Justice Kailasam, who was also present, cdnt control her tears when she narrated this incident:

“Once we were travelling to Bombay after his retirement by train for a Tribunal meeting ,in which,my husband was a Member. Since Mahaperiyava was camping in Mahagaon,on the banks of Krishna River,we decided to break journey at Cuddapah,have His Darshan and catch the next train to Bombay!

When we reached Mahagaon, Mahaperiyava received us as if Expecting our arrival and was in a very jovial mood,discussing about various issues concerning our Family!Then,when we wanted to take ‘Utharavu’,He smilingly asked us ‘Today is Pradosham!Why don’t you stay back and enjoy this banks of Krishna River!’

My husband said ‘I Have a meeting in Bombay and that’s why!’

Mahaperiyava’When is the meeting?’

Kailasam ‘Day after Tomorrow!’

Mahaperiyava ‘You have plenty of time but probably you are not used to such inconvenient places ,like the river sands!”

Mrs.Kailasam, said ‘Oh No  no Mahaperiyava. We will stay here as per your wish!”and they sent an assistant to rebook tkts for the next day…Mrs.Kailasam Cdnt control her tears when she said ‘that the train we ought to have gone met with a major accident and 198 were killed!

Nadamadum Deivam

Miracles of Mahaperiyava – Nigerian Miracle

Mahaperiyava

On this Mahaperiyava Jayanthi day, 8th June 2017, I try to Recall His immeasurable Compassion to Save me from a Certain Death, that too in Nigeria!

I was working in Phonodisk Nigeria, Ijebuode, as its CEO, a Nigerian – American collaboration, for manufacturing Gramophone Records, Cassettes. It was started by Allahji Haruna Ishola, who was like our Yesudas, whose records were sold all over Africa within no time! I was replacing a set of Americans who were Looting the co. As it happens in many cos there were many locals who did not like my disciplined way to make Phonodisk profitable, catching many of the culprits Red handed!

Sankara Jayanthi – NIGERIA Souvenir 1985(Printed in Phonodisk)

My factory was 35 KM from my Bungalow in Ijebuode and I had a Peugeot 505 and 504 and drivers had to come all the way from Ijebuode  to drive me to the Factory. So I asked them not to come all the way and I started driving myself everyday to the Factory in the Mornings!

With Phonodisk Staff

Those days in 80s,Nigeria was so rich with Oil Money that almost every one drove a Peugeot or a Benz! Traffic regulations had to be brought in Lagos by Stipulating Odd Cars on Odd Days and Even Cars on Even Days! That is why almost every CEO used to have 2 Cars!

My  Faith in Mahaperiyava was so Strong, I used to always keep His Picture on the Dashboard!

Nigerians, for that matter, most Africans,  believed in Witchcraft! Some of my Security Guards, and Cooks, living in our Premises used to be afraid of us, as we used to light the Deepam everyday in the evening and used to pray, thinking,  we also practise Witchcraft!

Phonodisk Staff

Haruna Ishola’s own brother, called Baba was the most affected financially after my arrival, as he was living next to the Factory, Looting all the time!

So his aim was to Finish me somehow!

One day when I was driving my 505 to the Factory, I was experiencing a wild wobbling in the front tyres. I was driving at 100 KM but somehow managed to reach the Factory!

When the Factory Security Guard opened the Gates and when I parked the car, I saw Baba with his close Assistants looking at me with Amazement! He had told most of them ‘I wd never ever enter the Factory again!’ 

When I closed the car door, to my utter Amazement, I saw the Front Right Side Wheel,  falling down and rolling! Someone had loosened the Bolts, when the car was parked  in the Garage !

Benjamin, my Security Guard!

Some of my Ghanian Staff, my  well Wishers like Bernard, came running and literally lifted me!

I was saved on that day purely because of my Faith in Him. On hearing this Allahji Haruna Ishola came from Lagos and hugged me! He, not educated in English, conveyed through his Daughter, a Director of Phonodisk  “Your Witchcraft is more Powerful than Baba’s. He will now run for his Life!”

A really wonderful innings I had in Nigeria thereafter, all because of His Grace!I printed and Released Fela’s First Album which crossed a Million Records in just 3 Days! Ofcourse, every time I used to print a Record of Allahji Haruna Ishola’s, we used to sell a Million Records, in a Music Crazy Country! Can’t believe I was also a part of those Celeberations ! 

Incase you want to hear a similar incident,  earlier to this one,  please listen to this video taken by Shivaraman for Sage of Kanchi :

A recent interview by Bharath Subramanian for Sage of Kanchi will reveal more Miracles:

Nadamadum Deivam!

Kanchi Mahan

 

Kanchi Paramacharya’s 21st Aaradhanai is on 18th Dec,Tomorrow!

In mylife,I have experienced unimaginable Miracles and I have written many blogs about it and I been interviewed by Sage of Kanchi also,where one can see this video!

Even,For an ordinary Idiot like me ,Kanchimahan’s Karunai was inexplicable.He is aptly called as

‘Nadamadum Deivam’,because,He has appeared even to ordinary mortals like me ,whenever,we have sought His help!

I wd like to add here His compassion for the Wellbeing of every Indian.Either directly or indirectly,He has touched the welfare of every Indian,I believe..I wd like to give an instance or two here for the same:

Every Indian,today,is very grateful for one man who changed the entire Electoral system of India,in one stroke and brought in far reaching changes,including Revealation of Candidates’ Assets etc.,..Mr.T.N.Seshan!

Mr.Seshan is an ardent devotee of Kanchimahan.He never does anything in his life,without getting His blessings.

Soon after Seshan’s revolutionary electoral reforms in 92s,everywhere,Seshan’s name was chanted.There was a Felicitation for Seshan by CII in Madras in which I was also present.

In his reply ,this is what Seshan said :

“Today everyone all over India,is admiring me as if I have done something great..but frankly,all this credit shd go to Kanchi Paramacharya,but for whom ,this is not just possible,I believe..Let me tell you why!

I was holding the Home Secretary’s position in Rajiv Gandhi’s Govt and I was absolutely honest and stickler to rules.Suddenly oneday in 1990,I was ‘shunted’ to the post of the Chief Election Commissioner!I use the word ‘shunted!’ Because thats how this post was called in Delhi Circles,where it mattered,the most, till that time!I was personally depressed and under such stressful times,I go to Kanchimahan to get His blessings.

Nextday,I flew down to Kanchipuram.

Kanchimahan asked me:

‘yenna ore kavalaiya irukke?’

I explained to him that I have been ‘shunted!’

Kanchimahan :’Yenda..ithu eppadi shunted nnu ninaikkire..?God has given you a very great opportunity..You must think like that!

Still I was not convinced.

Kanchimahan asked me’Have you gone to Uthiramerur Temple,15 KM from here?

I said I have heard about it but never visited.

Kanchimahan told me:You shd visit this temple and particularly read on the Northern side wall,whats written some 1000 yrs back about ‘who all can contest elections!’It gives details of who all can’t contest elections,like a murderer,thief,even a man who has illtreated his wife.It also stipulates that however good a man may be,max,he can hold an elected position only for Just Two Yrs..If you implement even 1/10th of this,you will do a great service to every Indian..!’

When Seshan said this,he added,’I saw a flash of Lightning in my mind and literally saw Viswaroopa Darshanam of Lord Krishna!’

( Seshan becomes emotional for a few seconds!)

He said,he went back and implemented,within his powers whats written in Uthiramerur Temple..

He said..”All credit to Him!Also I am in my 60s..and I tend to forget a lot.Just cdn’t imagine Kanchimahan at 97,had such clarity,that even described in minute details of that place and whats written!”

In another Video of Subramaniam Swamy,describes:

Kanchimahan,according to Dr.Subramania Swamy,is responsible for forcing Swamy to take up the Kailas Mansarover issue with the Chinese in 80s,when even External Affairs Minister under Indira Gandhi,Narasimha Rao,bluntly ridiculed Swamy saying

“Don’t waste your time with the Chinese..Our relationships is so sour,they wdn’t even look at us.”

Still Swamy goes to China and meets Deng Xiaoping!

Swamy describes in that video how he gets a Redcarpet welcome and the Chinese President,when asked about allowing Indians to the sacred Kailash Mansarover,he puts only one condition!

‘I will allow all Indians,provided ‘You are the First Indian to go there!’

Swamy is the First Indian to visit Kailash Manasarover!

Nadamadum Deivam indeed!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Arusuvai Natarajan’s IInd Innings!

Arusuvai Natarajan
I used to regularly meet him in Kanchi Mutt when he and his wife used to make and distribute Laddus for every Mahaperiyava Jayanthi, when 1000s used to come for Kanchi Mahaperiyava’s Blessings!His devotion for Mahaperiyava is to be seen to be believed.

Mahaperiyava

This is his story as narrated by him in Ananda Vikatan yrs back:

“He was helping his father who was also closely associated with the Mutt at Kumbakonam.As a boy his job was to clean the Dining hall as everyday, many used to come for Mahaperiyava’s Chandramouleeswara Puja.Arusuvai says “There were occasions I used to carry the ‘எச்சக்கலை'(banana leaves after one has finished the meals)on my head and eachday, used to be a horrible experience,those days!
After sometime,I got married and came to Madras… I was doing some odd jobs..but financially unable to survive in Madras!
One fine morning, unable to sustain the strains,me and my wife decided to end our Life!
We decided to go to Kanchipuram, have the Darshan of Mahaperiyava and end our Life!
We reached Kanchipuram by afternoon when Mahaperiyava,was kind enough to give darshan for us.

He asked me “What brought you here?”
Uncontrollably I was weeping.
Mahaperiyava asked His disciples to give me food and take care of me and my wife!

Mahaperiyava somehow sensed my plans by Foresight and asked one of the Disciples, never to Leave us ‘Alone’!

Next day Mahaperiyava asked His disciple to give us new clothes after our bath.
Then Mahaperiyava asked me “Why did you plan to end your Life? Don’t ever think like that!”
I was weeping uncontrollably, explaining my financial situation!
Mahaperiyava said “For all the Sincere work you have done for Kamakshi,she will take care of you.Be here through out today by myside!”
It was an Order and we were by His side when after a few hours,a devotee from Tirupati, came with garlands and prostrated before Mahaperiyava!

Mahaperiyava asked him ‘How is your business in Tirupati?’
By Mahaperiyava’s Grace it’s doing very very well.Thats why I have come here to seek Mahaperiyava’s guidance as to handover the Hiring business to someone else!’
(He started first a Rentals of Marriage vessels business for major marriages,receptions in and around Tirupati and minted money.Now he is not interested in that Rentals of vessels business!)
Mahaperiyava smilingly asked him:”So you have decided to hand over the old vessels?”
“Yes to whomever Mahaperiyava recommends along with my regular orders too!”
Mahaperiyava showed me to that man and ‘Try to help him.He is very very’precious’ to me!’

That’s how I started my business by supplying vessels for weddings.Slowly I started taking wedding contracts from start to finish.. When Jayalalitha asked me to take charge of all food catering for her adopted son’s wedding,I had become a well recognised caterer..all due to Mahaperiyava’s Grace!

Arusuvai also added that one day ,I came to know that the man who first helped me from Tirupati has suffered huge loss in Business and was in dire streets..I went and tried to help him too!…….”

Arusuvai Natarajan and me in a Wedding Reception

I salute this Great man,Arusuvai, for his perseverance and devotion for Mahaperiyava!

After Mahaperiyava attained Sidhi in 1994,there was a Shraddanjali meeting at Ayodhya Mandapam,presided over by Sri Guruji and speakers included,President,R.Venkatraman.

I was a witness when Guruji expressed repeatedly

“I am unable to bear this(Mahaperiyava’s)loss!”

I was startled to hear about Guruji’s Jala Samadhi within a few months in Rudraprayag!..

“Only Sri Guruji knows Why He did that when He was Hale and healthy!”

9/11 also happens to be my Bharathi’s Rememberance day..

I used to attend regularly Bharathi’s Rememberance day at Rani Seethai Hall where a handful of college students  used to talk about my Bharathi…!One fine evening after attending this function, when I returned home at 915 PM ,my wife was showing the attracious attack on WTC…..

We were worried about the whereabouts of our younger daughter, who on that very day had started her career in NYC, after her MS from Harvard….We got some news about her after 24 hrs….!

Let us pray that such things don’t ever happen and seek the Almighty’s Guidance always!

Today is Kripananda Varriar Jayanthi Day!

Varriar with Mahaperiyava

Kripananda Varriar lived such a Saintly  life,He takes us   back  by 1000 yrs  of how Appar,Sundarar,and Sambandar wd have lived!

Sri Kripananda Varriar

When in all Humility,He tried to Prostrate before Mahaperiyava,Kanchi  Mahan asked Him not to do so!Varriar asked Mahaperiyava,”Why ..you are Parameswara Himself!”

Mahaperiyava replied “But your sacred Rudraksha and the Lingam,shdnt touch the Bhoomi,as you are carrying Parameswara in your Sacred Chest!That is why!”

I have listened to Varriar on various occasions and none to my knowledge has taken the greatness of our Scriptures to the common man in such a simple but brilliant discourse than this gifted Saint!

 

My good friend,Vidyasagar of Matunga is so privileged that Varriar always used to stay with him.Vidyasagar was privileged to even receive the mortal remains of Varriar from London before bidding Farewell!

Here listen to One of Varriar’s great discourse on Discipline:

Sadasiva Brahmendrar Adhistanam, Nerur

Sadasiva Brahmendrar Adhistanam

A visit to this Adhistanam of Sadasiva Brahmendrar,Nerur helps one to reenergise to face the upcoming ups and downs!The very thought of Such Yogis have walked along these paths ,make us humble and go back to those days when they didn’t have Innovas and packed lunch boxes, to come to Nerur!

At Sadasiva Brahmendrar Adhistanam

It is indeed God’s Grace and pure Guru Bakthi,I have made this pilgrimage a second time!
