12. The 54 Lives Saved by Annai Saradamaball!
(Mahima of Sringeri Sri SaradambaL)

This happened several years ago. We decided on a yAtra (pilgrimage) to the
kshetras (holy places) in Karnataka, more than fifty devotees of us teaming up for
the tour. We started our journey in a large tourist bus. It was our custom to first go
to Kanchi, have darshan of PeriyavaaL and then continue our journey.
Around 4 o' clock in the afternoon of that day we stood up after prostrating to
Maha SwamigaL in SriMaTham. Giving us his blessings, laughing and raising
both his hands SwamigaL asked, "You people have come as a large ghoSTi... well,
what's the matter?" Forthwith I elaborated on the details of our Karnataka Yatra to
Feeling happy he asked, raising his eyebrows, "What is the uddesha (motive)
about the first place to go?" I said, "It is our uddesha, Periyavaa, that on reaching
Mangalore, we would first go to Talakkaveri, do our saMkalpa snAnam (bath and
prayer) there and then go to Sringeri. After that we have decided to have darshan
at SubrahmaNya, Dharmasthala, Udipi, Kollur Mukambika, Kateel Durga
Parameswari... in this order."
Before I could finish SwamigaL interrupted me. "Wait, wait... In the list you have
mentioned, you have missed an important place..." Looking at us who were all
standing with a question mark on our faces, and smiling, Periyavaa advised us,
"What, you don't understand? I shall tell you... Horanadu kshetra! Mother is
staying there as Annapurani, giving her anugraham. A very special place. Must
have darshan!"
He continued: "You people do as I tell you now. First go to Sringeri kshetram
from Mangalore. There, do your snAnam in Tunga, first have Guru Darshan, get
prasAdam from them, then have darshan of SaaradambaL and start from there (to
other places). After this, you may go to the places in your order of preference. Let
one thing be kept in mind though. Anyday you go to Sringeri, as far as possible,
reach the place before sAyarakSai (evening)."

All of us nodded our heads in affirmation, prostrated and got up. That Walking
God ordered distribution of anugraha prasAdam to us all. The driver and
conductor of the bus were called and the prasAdam given to them too. We started
On the next morning, our journey from Bangalore to Mangalore. We stayed in a
Kalyana Mandapam in Mangalore at night. On the morning the next day we got
ready to move after taking bath. A man named Ramanathan who accompanied us
came to me and said persuading, "We shall first go to Talakkaveri from here. After
doing our saMkalpa snAnam there, why not go to Sringeri later?"
I did not agree to that. "Whatever uttaravu (direction) Kanchi Periyavaa has given,
we should only follow that!” I said. It was not acceptable to them. "First we should
go to Talakkaveri only!" they compelled me, as if having discussed it already
among them. However much I pleaded with them, nobody was prepared to lend
me ears.
The bus travelled towards Talakkaveri. Staying there for a day and after finishing
our saMkalpa snAnam, we started our journey towards Sringeri. It was 8:00 o'
clock in the night. Both the front tyres of the bus that was going on the mountain
road to Sringeri got punctured and the bus stopped. It was pitch dark outside. In
the light from a torch light, Driver and Conductor started working on removing the
wheels with the punctured tyres and fixing the Stepney wheels in their place.
Hunger pinched our stomach; our last meal was at noon in Bagamandala.
Somehow the bus started moving at 10 o' clock. Suddenly it started drizzling. It
was 11 o' clock and yet there was no sight of Sringeri. Only then we had the doubt
whether we were going on the right road! As God-given, we sighted a man coming
in the distance. We stopped the bus near him and inquired. He patted on his head
and said, "This road leads to another place. 15 km before you should have turned
on the road that branched to the right." It gave us a shock!
So the bus needed to be turned towards the direction we came. Driver got down
and had a look. A narrow road, with valleys on both sides. Climbing onto his seat,
Driver said with a falsely assured courage, "You people don't worry. I shall back
up little by little with sharp turns on the steering wheel and somehow move the
bus to an about turn!" and got on the task. Sitting with fear, we started chanting
Rama Namam. Somehow having managed to turn the bus ninety degrees, Driver
said in a loud voice, suddenly worried, "Sir, sir... However much I step on the
brake, the bus starts slipping behind! Raise an even louder ghoSaNam
(proclamation) in the name of God... Only He should save us all now!"
His words
had the effect of dissolving tamarind inside our belly. We too felt the bus slipping
behind. All of us with tears welling up in our eyes started wailing, "Sringeri
Sharadambaa, save us Ma! Sringeri Maha Sannidhaname, save us! Kanchi
PeriyavaaLe, Ramachandra Murtiye, save us, save us...!"

Suddenly Driver said, "Sir, I have now taken my leg from the brake! The vehicle
is not slipping behind! As if a hundred people are supporting it from behind, the
vehicle stands intact! Now no worry at all. Shall turn the bus in a few moments"
and started on his efforts. We did not stop the nAma ghoSaNam.
appAda! (At last) the driver managed to turn the bus. All of us breathed a sigh of
peace! It was exactly 12:00 hours midnight. Exactly at one-thirty we reached the
entrance to Sringeri Samasthanam
. A GanapadigaL who was standing at the
entrance to receive us (it is my recollection that it was Nageswara GanapadigaL!)
said with a laugh, "Vaango, vaango! You are all coming from Madras, right? First
wash your hand and feet and come have some food. You would be hungry. Rice
Uppuma and Bringal Gotsu are ready!"
"How do you know, ShastrigaaL that we are coming? We did not even write to
you?" I asked him. He said laughing, "It is vAstavam (true) that your coming will
not be known to people who are like us. Maha Sannidhanam, dIrgha darshigaL
(with foresight) will be knowing everything, you see? It was only Maha
Sannidhanam who called me around eleven o' clock and gave orders, 'To have
darshan of Sarada, 54 Bhaktas from Madras are coming in a bus. They all come
with great hunger! So ask our people to prepare Rice Uppuma and Gotsu and keep
the food ready. In addition, for them to stay, arrange a large hall.'
After arranging
all that I have come to stand here and receive you all!" He sunk us in surprise.
Seeing the dIrgha dharsanam and karuNa (compassion) of Sri Sri Sri Abhinava
Vidyatheertha SwamigaL, Adiyen (I) wondered. Tears rushed to my eyes. Seeing
that SastrigaL said, "You are amazed at this thing... I am going to tell you another
thing in the morning; you would then be really stunned!
" and led us on. Hot
Uppuma and Gotsu were served ready in 54 nuni (top) banana leaves. We ate the
food filling up our stomach.
The next morning. Finishing our snAnam in the Tunga river, we started to have
darshan of Maha Sannidhanam Sri Sri Sri Abhinava Vidyatheertha SwamigaL.
The SastrigaL we met last night was seen by us.
To him I asked joining my palms, "You said you would tell us some vishayam
(news) in the morning. I pray that you please tell it now."
SastrigaL started talking: "Would have been around 12 o' clock last night. Sitting
in his ekAnta (private) room, Maha Sannidhanam was examining some Sastra
books. I was sitting in the outer hall. Suddenly coming out, Maha Sannidhanam
kept both his hand pressed hard to the wall and started murmuring some mantra. I
too got up. From the posture of Maha Sannidhanam it seemed as if he was
supporting the wall from falling. I did not understand anything. Five minutes later,
taking his hands off the wall, Maha Sannidhanam came to me and said, 'You
witnessed and wondered why I kept my hands against the wall in that pose and did
some Japam. It is nothing else. The bus wherein came those people from Madras
to have darshan of SaradambaL missed its way. Later when they realized the
mistake and turned the bus, the brakes did not apply... bus started moving behind
on its own. The Bhaktas in them wailed, 'save us, save us!' calling aloud the name
of Amma Sarada. So I supported the bus from slipping behind by resting my hands
on the walls. Now everything is alright, and the bus is coming towards Sringeri!
You go and make the arrangements as I told you', and went inside his room. I
stood stunned!"
Listening to this, all of us wept. We started to have darshan of that
Walking SaradambaL.
Looking at this Adiyen who prostrated and got up, Sri Sri Sri Maha Sannidhanam
said laughingly, "Should always listen to what the Mahaans say. And follow it. If
you make a change in it everything that happens would be changed too. What, you
With these words he did anugraha of prasAdam. This Adiyen then
realized that Maha Sannidhanam only informed in sUcaka (by indicating) to the
fact of our not following what Sri Kanchi Periyavaa ordered for us!

General Discussion / Significance of Hanuman Jayanthi
« on: January 11, 2013, 12:47:06 PM »

Note : In Tamil Nadu Hanuman Jayanthi is today i,e Fri 11 Jan 2013 while in Other parts of India ,it is in April  2013

Hanuman Jayanthi is observed during various time of year by different Hindu communities. Majority of the people observe it in the Chaitra month (March - April). In 2013, Hanuman Jayanti, or Hanumantha Jayanthi, in Tamil Month Margazhi is on January 11. In Tamil Nadu, it is observed in the Margazhi month or Margali Masam, which is one of the most auspicious months in Tamil Calendar.

It is widely believed that Lord Hanuman is present where the story of Lord Ram is recited. Therefore people read the Ramayana on the day or recite prayers dedicated to Rama. The Sundara Kandam chapter of Ramayana is read by most people.Special prayers are held on the day in Hanuman Temples and are visited by large number of devotees. At home, idols or pictures of Hanuman are thoroughly cleaned at dawn. Idols and pictures are smeared with Sindhoor. Sweets and bananas are offered to Hanuman.

Hanuman Jayanthi by Swami Sivananda

SRI HANUMAN is worshipped all over India—either alone or together with Sri Rama. Every temple of Sri Rama has the murti or idol of Sri Hanuman. Hanuman was the Avatara of Lord Siva. He was born of the Wind-God and Anjani Devi. He is also called by the names Pavanasuta, Marutsuta, Mahavira, Bajrangabali and Pavankumar.

Hanuman was the living embodiment of the power of Ram-Nam. He was an ideal selfless worker, a true Karma Yogi who worked desirelessly. He was a great devotee and an exceptional Brahmachari or celibate. He served Sri Rama with pure love and devotion, without expecting any fruit in return. He lived only to serve Sri Rama. He was humble, brave and wise. He possessed all the divine virtues. He did what others could not do—crossing the ocean simply by uttering Ram-Nam, burning the demon-king's city of Lanka, and bringing the sanjeevini herb to restore the life of Lakshmana. He brought Sri Rama and Lakshmana from the nether world after killing Ahiravana.

Hanuman possessed devotion, knowledge, spirit of selfless service, power of celibacy, and desirelessness. He never boasted of his bravery and intelligence.

He said to Ravana, "I am a humble messenger of Sri Rama. I have come here to serve Sri Rama, to do His work. By the command of Sri Rama, I have come here. I am fearless by the Grace of Sri Rama. I am not afraid of death. I welcome it if it comes while serving Sri Rama."

See how humble Hanuman was! How deep was his devotion to Sri Rama! He never said, "I am the brave Hanuman. I can do anything and everything."

Sri Rama Himself said to Hanuman, "I am greatly indebted to you,
O mighty hero. You did marvellous, superhuman deeds. You do not want anything in return. Sugriva has his kingdom restored to him. Angada has been made the crown prince. Vibhishana has become king of Lanka. But you have not asked for anything at any time. You threw away the precious garland of pearls given to you by Sita. How can I repay My debt of gratitude to you? I will always remain deeply indebted to you. I give you the boon of everlasting life. All will honour and worship you like Myself. Your idol will be placed at the door of My temple and you will be worshipped and honoured first. Whenever My stories are recited or glories sung, your glory will be sung before Mine. You will be able to do anything, even that which I will not be able to!"

Thus did Sri Rama praise Hanuman when the latter returned to Him after finding Sita in Lanka. Hanuman was not a bit elated. He fell in prostration at the holy feet of Sri Rama.

Sri Rama asked him, "O mighty hero, how did you cross the ocean?"

Hanuman humbly replied, "By the power and glory of Thy Name, my Lord."

Again Sri Rama asked, "How did you burn Lanka? How did you save yourself?"

And Hanuman replied, "By Thy Grace, my Lord."

What profound humility Hanuman embodied in himself!

There are many who want wealth in return for their services. Some do not want wealth, but they cannot resist name and fame. Others do not want any of these, but they want approbation. Still others want nothing, but they boast of their deeds. Hanuman was above all these. That is why he is recognised as an ideal Karma Yogi and an unsurpassed adept in Bhakti. His life is full of object lessons. Everyone should try his best to follow the noble example of Hanuman.

His birthday falls on Chaitra Shukla Purnima—the March-April full moon day.

On this holy day worship Sri Hanuman. Fast on this day. Read the Sri Hanuman Chalisa. Spend the whole day in the Japa of Ram-Nam. Hanuman will be highly pleased and will bless you with success in all your undertakings.

Glory to Hanuman! Glory to his Lord, Sri Rama!

This post on Kanchi Maha Swamigal will be more useful if we read in the Context of the one posted above by me in Tamil . In the first post Kanchi Maha Swamigal request people to use their own Prayer altar at their house ( i.e their own Ishta Deivam ) to connect with the almighty and here he gives reason why for some people in spite of saying prayers regularly at home it does not work well . Periyava asks people to do the prayers sincerely sitting in front of the deity and doing the prayers with full concentration and not just mechanical repetition of the prayers while doing other house hold work .

நேத்திக்கு ஒரு அம்மா சொன்னார். நான் நெறைய ஸ்லோகம்  பாராயணம் பண்றேன்.மத்யானம் சாப்பிடவே ஒரு மணியாறது.   ஆனா பிரச்சினைகள் தீரலே…பகவான் கண் பார்க்கலேன்னு வருத்தப்பட்டார்.

“ஸ்லோகம் சொல்றச்சே சுவாமி முன்னாடி உட்கார்ந்துண்டு,  சுவாமியை மனசிலே நிறுத்திண்டுதானே பாராயணம் பண்றேள்”னு கேட்டேன்.

“அதெப்படி முடியும்? குளிச்சிண்டே,வேற வெலை பார்த்துண்டே தான் சொல்றேன்.எல்லாம் மனப்பாடம்.தப்பு வராது”ன்னா.

காய் நறுக்கணும்னா அரிவாள்மணை,கத்தியைக் கிட்டே வைச்சுக்கறோம். சமைக்கணும்னா அடுப்பு கிட்டே போகணும்.

குளிக்கணும், துவைக்கணும்னா தண்ணீர் பக்கத்திலே போறோம். ஸ்கூட்டர், கார் எதுவானாலும் கிட்ட இருந்து ஓட்டினா தான் ஓடறது.

ஆனா ஸ்லோகம் சொல்லணும்னா மனசு சுவாமிகிட்டே போக வேண்டாமா? “ஸர்வாந்தர்யாமி” தான் அவன். ஆனாலும் பிரச்சினை பெரிசுன்னா பக்கத்துல உட்கார்ந்து அனுசரணையா சிரத்தையா
சொல்லுங்கோ… நிச்சயம் கேட்பான்.

வேறு வேலையில் கவனம் இல்லாமிலிருந்தால் விபத்து நடக்கும். ஆனா பகவான் ஞாபகம் இல்லாம ஸ்லோக மந்திரத்தை முணு முணுத்தா போறும்னு நெனைக்கலாமா?

புதுப் பூவைப் பார்த்தா பகவானுக்குத் தரணும்னு ஆசை வரணும். தளதளன்னு இருக்கிற சந்தனத்தை பகவானுக்கு பூசிப் பார்க்கணும்னு நெனைப்பு வரணும்.இந்தப் புடவையிலே அம்பாள் எப்படி
இருப்பாள்னு நெனைச்சு தியானம் பண்ணினாலேகருணை செய்கிறவாளாச்சே!

கல்லைத் தூக்கி சமுத்திரத்திலே போட்டா மூழ்கிடும். ஆனா மரத்தாலே கப்பல் பண்ணி, அதிலே எத்தனை கல் ஏத்தினாலும் மூழ்கிறதில்லே!

கவலைகள் கல்லு மாதிரி,பகவான் தெப்பம் மாதிரி, மனசு என்கிற சமுத்திரத்திலே பகவானைத் தெப்பமாக்கணும். தெய்வத்தை இணைக்கிற ஆணிகள் தான் பூஜை மந்திரங்கள் எல்லாம்.
அப்புறம் கவலைகளைத் தூக்கி தெப்பத்தில் இறக்கலாம். சம்சாரசாகரத்தில் மூழ்கடிக்கப்படாமல் கரை சேர்ந்து விடலாம்.

From the book ஸ்ரீ பரமாச்சார்யாள் பாதையிலே — ஆர்.பொன்னம்மாள்.

Ravi , Nagaraj

Thanks for your positive comments . Yesterday I was completely soaked with various devotee's experience with Sri Kanchi Maha Swamigal and the posted incident really shook me .  We dismiss day to day pujas to our deities as some thing as routine ritual and then desperately run to Divine men for blessings and Guidance and here Sri Kanchi Maha Swamigal has pointed out that the God in your own Puja altar is sufficient to Guide you if you seek its guidance with full earnestness .
I had a taste of this myself few days back when I misplaced an important Document( I have shared it in another thread )  and got back the same after saying my daily prayers with full devotion before the deity .

Om Peace

உபாசனா தெய்வம் ஒன்னோட பேசும். என்ன? புரிஞ்சுதா?

பெரியவாளுடைய இந்த அறிவுரை  நம் எல்லோருக்கும் ஒரு சம்மட்டி அடி !

சிமிழி பிரஹ்மஸ்ரீ வெங்கட்ராம சாஸ்த்ரிகள் பெரியவாளுடைய அன்புக்கும் அபிமானத்துக்கும் ரொம்ப அருகதை உடையவர்.  அப்படியொரு அனுஷ்டானம் ! பெரியவாளிடம் பக்தி!

அவர் மறைந்ததும், அவருடைய பிள்ளைக்கு பால்யத்திலேயே ரெண்டு சன்யாசிகள் மூலமாக தேவி உபாசனை உபதேசிக்கப்பட்டது.  பல ஆண்டுகள் உபாசித்தும் “உபாசனையில் வாக்கு, சரீரம் ரெண்டும் ஈடுபடர அளவு, மனஸ் ஈடுபட மாட்டேங்கறது. அதனால மனசுக்கு சாந்தி கெடைக்கவேயில்லை” என்ற இந்த உண்மையான எண்ணம் ரொம்ப வலுத்துக் கொண்டே போனது. பல வழிகளை கையாண்டும் ஒன்றும் பிரயோஜனமில்லை. பெரியவா மட்டுமே இதற்கு வழி காட்டமுடியும் என்ற நம்பிக்கையில் பெரியவாளிடம் வந்தார்.

கார்வேட் நகரில் ஒரு குளக்கரையில் அழகாக வேய்ந்திருந்த ஒரு சிறு கொட்டகையின் வாசலில் அமர்ந்திருந்தார். எத்தனைதான் அறிமுகம் இருந்தாலும், பூர்வர்கள் யார் யார் என்பதெல்லாம் தெரியாதது மாதிரி கேட்டுக் கொள்வார்.  நாம் இன்னாரது வம்சத்தில் வந்திருக்கிறோம் என்று சொல்லி அறிமுகப்படுத்திக் கொள்வதை அவர் மிகவும் விரும்புவதாக இருக்கும்.  இந்த உபாசகரும் தான் சிமிழி சாஸ்த்ரிகள் பிள்ளை என்று சொல்லிவிட்டு, தன் மனஸ் படும் கஷ்டத்தை சொல்லி, வழிகாட்ட வேண்டும் என்று வேண்டினார். அப்போது நடந்த சம்பாஷணை………..

“தேவி உபாசனை பல வர்ஷங்களா பண்ணிண்டு இருக்கேன். ஆனா, மனஸ் துளிகூட ஈடுபடலை. ரொம்ப உறுத்தறது. எனக்கு ஒரு வழி காட்டணும் பெரியவா”

“என்ன சொல்றே? அதனால என்ன தப்பு?”

“மனஸ் தனி வஸ்துவா இருக்கறதால, பூஜை முழுமையாகாத மாதிரி இருக்கு”

“அதுக்கு நா என்ன பண்ணறது?”

“மனஸ் ஈடுபட ஒரு வழி காட்டணும்”

“என்ன படிச்சிருக்கே?”


“இத்தனை படிச்சும், ஒனக்கு விவேகமில்லே! ஒன் மனஸை நா திருத்த முடியாது”

“என்னாலேயே என்னை திருத்திக்க முடியலை. அதான் பெரியவாட்ட வந்தேன்”

“என்னை என்ன செய்ய சொல்றே?”

“மனஸ் சாந்தி அடையணும்”

“நீ என்ன பூஜை பண்றே?”

“அம்பாளை படத்துலேயும், விக்ரஹத்துலேயும், யந்த்ரத்துலேயும்  பூஜை பண்ணறேன்”

“ரொம்ப சரி. படத்ல அம்பாள் இருக்கறதா நெனச்சுதான பூஜை பண்றே?”


“அப்போ…….இந்த கொறையைக் கூட அவகிட்டயே சொல்லியிருக்கலாமே?  நெறைய படிச்சிருக்கே. படம், விக்ரஹம், யந்த்ரம்….ன்னு எல்லா எடத்துலேயும்  அவ இருக்கறதா பூஜையும் பண்றே. ஆனா, ஒண்ணுலயும் ஒனக்கு பிடிப்போ, நம்பிக்கையோ இல்லை. அம்பாள் ஓங்காத்துலேயே, ஒன் பக்கத்துலேயே இருக்கறச்சே, ஒன் கொறையை அவட்ட சொல்லி அழத் தெரியலையே! இனிமே அவகிட்டயே சொல்லி அழு! இங்க வராதே. நான் என்ன பண்ண முடியும்?”

மிகவும் சூடாக பதில் வந்ததும், உபாசகர் விக்கித்து நின்றார். மனஸ் இந்த பேரிடியை தாங்கமாட்டாமல், கண்களில் ஜலம் முட்டி நின்றது. நமஸ்காரம் பண்ணிவிட்டு உத்தரவு வாங்கிக் கொள்ள யத்தனித்தார்.  அம்பாள் மனஸ் இறங்கினாள்………..

“ரொம்ப கோவிச்சுண்டுட்டேனா ! நீயே ரொம்ப ஆசையா அம்பாளை உபாசனை பண்றே!  மனஸ் ஈடுபடலை..ன்னு ஒனக்கே தெரியறது. உபாசனை…ன்னா சமீபத்ல இருக்கறதுன்னு அர்த்தம். ஒனக்கு எப்பவுமே பக்கத்ல இருக்கறவள் கிட்டே ஒன்னோட கொறையை சொல்லாம, நீட்டி மொழக்கிண்டு எங்கிட்ட வந்தியே!….ங்கறதாலதான் கொஞ்சம் அப்பிடி ஒரைக்கறா மாதிரி சொன்னேன்.

இனிமே……….என்ன கொறையானாலும், எதுக்கும் அவளைத் தவிர வேற யார்கிட்டயும் சொல்லக் கூடாது ! நீ பூஜை பண்ற தெய்வத்துகிட்ட, அது அம்பாளோ, சிவனோ, விஷ்ணுவோ, பிள்ளையாரோ….யாரா இருந்தாலும் சரி, அவா கிட்டேயே கேட்டாத்தான் ஒன்னோட நம்பிக்கைக்கு ஏத்தா மாதிரி அனுக்ரகமும் கெடைக்கும். உன் உபாசனா தெய்வம் ஒன்னோட பேசும். என்ன? புரிஞ்சுதா?……..நம்பிக்கைதான் எல்லாம்.  அவளோட அனுக்கிரகம் ஒனக்கு நிச்சயமா உண்டு! கவலைப்படாதே…..க்ஷேமமா இரு!” என்று அபயஹஸ்தம் “கொடுத்தாள்” !

இனி ?…………. எனக்கென்ன மனக்கவலை? என் தாய்க்கன்றோ தினம் தினம் என் கவலை.

What about putting just one marble in one bottle and all others in another bottle?? Still not sure - but at least higher probability :)


Spot on Sanjay you have become a Crorepati now .You have to put one white in one bottle and 40 white in another bottle so the probability of success is great .

A KBC ( Kaun Banega Crorepati )  contest is being Organized and you have reached the finals and the final test for you are given 50 no of White Marbles and 50 nos of Black Marbles and also 2 sets of Jars .
You have the freedom to mix and put these 50+ 50 = 100  marbles in the 2 Jars in any way you want .But after putting the same , you will be blindfolded and the jars will be re-arranged and you are given a single chance only to pick a marble from any one Jar .If you pick a White Marble , you will get Rs.1  Crore Prize and if you pick a black marble you will not get any prize .
So how should you mix the black and white marbles in these 2 jars so that you have the maximum probability of getting a white marble in single stroke and becoming a Crorepati ?  :)
