A Rare Photo And A Rapturous Incident…

Periyava And Duraiswamy Iyer

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!

Periyava Pathugai InKulithalai

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:

    This reminded me of Doraiswamy iyer of T.Kolathur [see “T.Kolathur clans” in F B ] who was the personal cook of Paramacharial for decades. His son was Dr SUNDARARAMAN , A well known Maths Professor of U S A.
    How Periaval helped,the poor student, in pursuing Higher Studies in Annamalai university{PHd},his ascent,and later days etc are graphically described by Late Dr Sundararaman,himself ,in a booklet:that son of Doraisamy;,also available in the above site.

    very rare photo. I have a small request. I came across a video about this fire yogi. He is a devotee of paramacharya. he lives in tanjavur. Can anyone interview him. his power is really amazing. I am sure he has full gataksham of our periyava. here is the link : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXfyrWRbmss

      As a PRO of Sankara Nethralaya , I took care of him when he came for Eye Treatment. He asked Dr Badrinath if the Introcular Lens implanted in his eyes would melt when he goes into fire. Dr Badrinath replied back saying we normal human will be burnt in fire and if you aren’t, how can I comment about the lens you wear.

      If we get a chance, we shall definitely record his experience with MahaPeriyava.
