Maha Periyava Appears in Chandi Homam

Salutations to Sri Kanchi Maha Periyava, whose photo is above here. In the performance of any homam, when the word “Svaha” is uttered, and one invokes the Divine Deities, They Do in fact arrive and bless the performer. This is what has been transmitted to us, average beings, by the knowledgeable ones. There is a video on the internet, connected to an episode of “Kanchiyin Karunai Kadal” that aired by DD Podhigai TV, wherein an old lady who wants to perform a first class homam in her house in Salem, Tamil Nadu, India, goes to meet Sri Kanchi Maha Periyava and invites Him to her house to attend the homam and He accepts !

She thought He was going to travel to Salem from Kancheepuram and attend the Homam. She invited all her close friends and relatives who were equally excited that the Divine Periyava Himself was going to come to the homam and give His blessings. The hostess kept looking at the door, but there was no sign of the Sage from Kanchi.
After the completion of the ceremony, this lady goes and re-visits Maha Periyava and complains that He did not keep His word and that He should have shown up since that was what was promised. To that apparently Periyava replied: “Who told you I did not show up?” “You had a photographer taking pictures, didn’t you?” The lady replied “Yes.” And Periyava said, “Ask him to show you the picture of the Homa Kundam and you will see Me !” The lady prostrated before the saint, immediately rushed back to Salem, went to the photographer and asked him for the pictures immediately and she did in fact see an image of Sri Kanchi Maha Periyava right in the Homa Kundam ! Apparently, this photo is on the wall of her house and is open for the public to see any time !

Following is a short video clip of Maha Chandi Homam performed on our back deck on April 29, 2016. Read the article below prior to watching video, which is best in full screen mode.

Prior to starting the Maha Chandi Homam, a sincere prayer was offered to Sri Kanchi Maha Periyava to please come and bless at the Homam. Note that the walls of the Homa Kundam started out all silvery, having a fresh layer of heavy Reynolds aluminum wrap, to protect the underlying copper -- no markings, no pictures, nothing. The Homam is performed facing east. North is therefore to the left of the yajamana (performer). The picture quality taken from a mobile phone is not the best; but if you focus on the inside north wall towards the yajamana, you will definitely see a serene picture of Sri Kanchi Maha Periyava – only His face covering the entire wall ! He is present throughout the clip, with a calm posture, enjoying the offerings and the mantras. The short clip presented is from the Rahasyam part of Durga Saptashati that is being chanted. Sri Maha Periyava WAS there that day; He blesses ALL beings everywhere; He certainly satisfied this humble soul’s humble request and prayer! If this is not a miracle, then what else is?

Om Sri Kanchi Maha Periyava Namo Namaha !
