Salem – 636 016
This person is a doctor practicing at Salem. He had his medical studies in England and in the thirst of having religious and spiritual life, he returned back to India. He is highly devoted to Sri Guruvayurappan which Bhakti is getting further strengthened due to his constant devotion to Sri Krishnapremi Swamiji. H has been doing Srimad Bhagavata Parayanam daily.
One day, in the early morning, when the doctor was fast asleep, he had a dream in which Sri Mahaperiyaval appeared and asked the doctor to offer ‘archana’ to Sri Krishna reciting Sri Krishna Ashtothram. The couple searched for the book. Unable to locate the book, in some days they forgot the matter.
After about a fortnight, the couple along with their only son went to Alleppy to see his mother. They had a plan to go to uruvayur on their way back to Salem.
Again in the early hours in his deep sleep, the doctor had a dram of Sri Mahaperiyaval, who reminded him about the Sri Krishnan Ashtothram. The doctor replied that he could not find the book, which he remembered to have bough few years ago. Sri Acharyal told the doctor that a book title “Bruhatstotra Ratnakaram” is kept on the refrigerator in their house in Salem, in which there is “Sri Krishna Ashtothram”.
Immediately cutting short his planned stay at Alleppy, they returned to Salem to find the Sri Krishna Ashtothram book exactly on the fridge in their house. From that day onwards the doctor is offering Tulasi Archana to Sri Guruvaayurappan reciting Sri Krishnan Ashtothram. The first ‘archana’ is being offered to Sri Mahaperiyaval.
