Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara – Thanks to Shri Anand Ramaswamy for sharing this beautiful incident!
Experiences with Maha Periyava: “Swamigal gently put His Lotus Feet on Krishna’s feet!!!”
“One lady used to say, “He is like Lord Krishna and we are always swarming Him like those calves, enjoying His presence”.
One day it was Gokulashtami. Kanchi MahaSwamigal had gone to the backyard for His morning duties at 4am. His Kainkaryam Sri Srikantan told me, “Mami, I will open the door secretly for you. You should put the necessary kolams and Kutty Krishna’s feet on the floor as quickly as possibly and run from here, Ok?”
I said Ok!
He said, “If you want, I will close the backyard door. Let me know the moment you are finished with the kolams and then I will open it again for Him”.
He was talking like as if the Sarveshwaran will not know about our plans!
I put the kolams; the Kutty Krishna’s feet came out so beautifully that day. I drew the Feet from the backyard door right up to the room where He does the poojas and also near the kitchen. And then quickly I came out, afraid that Srikantan might admonish me for taking so much time!
I stood behind a window and got ready to watch the Celestial event unfold. Swamigal opened the door. On seeing the tiny Krishna feet kolams, He lifted His vastram and gently put His Lotus Feet on Krishna’s feet, one by one, and came walking to His room sweetly, all the way He was looking at me through the window! He walked as if He was Lord Krishna Himself!!!
That Sarveshwaran, what Kindness!
Even today, I am reminded of That day on all Krishna Jayanthi days!”
Narrated by the blessed devotee, Smt. Prathiyangara Padmasini, in her interactions with Him!
