Sri Seetharama Swamigal (of Sri Ramanuja Yogavanam) is an ardent devotee of Sri MahaPeriyava.
Swamigal shares his experience with Sri MahaPeriyava. And throughout the video, he keeps repeating that “Periyava is his Kula Deivam“.
Marikozhundhu Kuchi Prasadam :
One of the incidents that he narrates is the “Marikozhundhu Kuchi Prasadam” that Periyava gave to a lady devotee. The incident is well known to many. Sri Seetharama Swamigal is the first hand witness to the incident as he was also in the bus that the lady was travelling…
Indira Gandhi having darshan of Periyava :
Again, this incident has been narrated by many and there is always a myth that Periyava while in Kashta Mounam showed His Hand doing Aasirvadham and thereby “kai” chinnam was chosen for the congress party. Again, Sri Seetharama Swamigal has been the personal witness to the incident and thereby narrates it all…
36 Mukku in Cauvery river by Periyava :
This is a touching incident where a devotee comes to Periyava crying that his daughter is 39 years old and yet to be married. Periyava asked that devotee, சாவித்ரி அம்மாளுக்கும் சந்நியாசிக்கும் என்ன சம்பந்தம்-னு செவுத்துல எழுதினது நீ தானே? நான் ஸ்நானம் பண்ணும்போது பாத ரக்ஷைய காவேரி-ல தூக்கி அடிச்சது நீ தானே? [“Savithri ammal-lukkum Sanniyasi-kum yenna sambandham”-nu sevuthula yezhudhinadhu nee dhane? Naan Snaanam pannum podhu Paadha rakshai-ya thooki Cauvery -la adichadhu nee dhane?]
Later, how did Periyava bless that devotee?
his wedding and Thirumalai Vaiyaavoor Srinivasa Swami Thirupani :
Periyava HIMSELF chose a bride for Seetharama Swamigal and blessed them to live like Ramakrishna Paramahamsar and also directed him to take the thirupani of Thirumalai Vaiyaavoor Srinivasa Swami.
