The Hand of Benevolence (Hastham) and the Holy Feet (Paadham) of the Guru is believed to be akin to Divine Potentiality. Blessed is the earnest seeker to be bestowed a Guru, who grants each opportunity to serve them.
A noble devotee on setting eyes on the Hastham of Moolavar Sri Maha Periyava, New Jersey, wished for the tallest of material orders: a Gauntlet encrusted in Diamonds (அங்கி). It seems to be tall for us mere folk, but isn’t it no holds barred when a devotee wants to adorn the Guru with the choicest?
It has been nothing short of a dream to see the worldwide response of every devotee who has, without a second thought, showered all that they deem precious at the feet of the Guru.
We can all now delight that every ‘gem’ of an offering that each hand submitted, has found it’s way gracefully into the Hand of the Divine. The Vaira Abhaya-Hastham shines even brighter on Sri Maha Periyava, at Sri Maha Periyava Manimandapam, New Jersey.
