The blessed person standing behind HIM is Sri Duraisamy Iyer from Sathanoor. Those days, he used to cook food for Sri MahaPeriyava and he was a mirasdhar. His grandson is in Delhi who shared this rare photo and the information.
Here is a small incident shared by him…
Once, Sri MahaPeriyava after finishing Pooja went to Sri Duraisamy Iyer ‘s house (person standing in the photo) and stood for some time in the night and every one was surprised. After some time Periyava left that place after leaving HIS Padhugai. The next day morning, the family members took HIS Padhugai and had HIS Darshan and said that by mistake Periyava left HIS Padhugai. Periyava immediately said, I know I left it there for you only. What a blessing!
Today, the very same Holy Padhugai of HIM is at the residence of Sri M Ramasubramanian at 36/48 Vaigainallur Agraharam, Kulithalai – 639104.
Special thanks to Advocate Venkatasubramanian for sharing this rare photo and a divine incident behind it. As we all know, Sri Venkatasubramanian is a blessed person whose life changed after reading Deivathin Kural. Here is a flashback from his experience with Sri MahaPeriyava:
