As Pradosha Mandalam is celebrating the 90th Jayanthi Mahotsavam of Sri Pradosham Mama tomorrow, Saturday, November 12th 2016, here is our Umesh Sadasivam offering his Namaskaram in his own way – கொடுத்து வைத்த கை!
Pradosha Mandalam – Jayanthi Mahotsavam – Saturday, Nov 12th 2016
Triplicane Periyava (Sri Govinda Damodara Swamigal) also called as Angarai Periyava once said, What we are all doing is not “Bhakthi”; We are all only admiring “Bhakthi”. To be more precise, here is His quote in Tamizh: “நாம பண்ணறது பேரு பக்தி இல்ல பா, நாம எல்லாம் பக்தி-ய ரசிக்கறோம்!”.
Sri Pradosham Mama longingly says He doesn’t know to do Bhakthi on Periyava… His Bhakthi on Periyava isn’t enough. To be more precise, here is His quote in Tamizh: “பெரியவா கிட்ட பக்தி பண்ண தெரியல, எனக்கு பெரியவா கிட்ட பக்தி போறல!”.
“மாமா அப்படியே அடி வயதுலேண்டு பேசுவா” – says Sri Ganesa Sarma. We could relate to that same feeling hearing Sri Pradosham Mama’s voice in the below video snippet:
We may not know you;
We may not have felt you;
We may not even have admired you;
Periyava blessed us to know HIM;
Periyava blessed us to feel HIS OmniPresence;
Periyava blessed us to admire HIS Omnipotence;
Prayers to Periyava to bless us with Bhakthi as well…
அவன் அருளாலே அவன் தாள் வணங்கி !!!
