Profile of a Mahan
Many miracles have been associated with Maha Periyava.
Maha Periyava composed a song called Maithreem Bhajatha for world peace and communal harmony. M.S. Subbulakshmi had the honor to sing the song at the UN General Assembly in 1966. On the day of the concert, she had a very bad throat and could hardly breathe. She panicked about the outcome of the concert. Even on the stage, she was shivering with fright over her incapability to sing. She prayed to Maha Periyava to help her with the concert. When she sang the first word, she miraculously regained her voice, which sounded sweeter than ever! She sang the composition to a standing ovation.
