Experiences with Maha Periyava: Puncturing the Ego

I witnessed an incident about 4 decades back in Kalavai, when I went to have a darshan of Paramacharya on His Jayanthi day.There was as usual a huge crowd. My wife and I were waiting when He appeared suddenly from another side. The crowd started moving towards Him. There was a 50 year old Man with gold chains adorning the neck and his wife prostrated before Him. Periyava was in mouna vratham. He looked a very well placed businessman.
Periyava enquired,”How are you?" in mouna.
This man and his wife gave a pamphlet showing that he conducted 'Samashti Upanayanam’ for 4 days for poor Brahmins in KK Nagar (free Upanayanams with all costs born by him.) Periyava looked at the pamphlet.There was silence. He asked him "How much did you spend?" "He said a few lacs." Silence.
Periyava asked him in mouna, about a boy called "Dakshinamurthy of Tirunelveli. This man got a shock of his life. Periyava disappeared!
This man started weeping uncontrollably. .His wife tried to pacify and a few journalists present asked him, "Sir what happened? Why are you crying?"
He went on repeating," I am a criminal. I am a criminal." Then he explained,
"I had a widowed sister few years ago and her son's name is Dakshinamurthy. I took care of them but she also passed away. I did not like to keep that boy in my house and drove him away and I do not know where he is. Periyava 'indirectly' asked me today 'You do Samashti Upanayanam' for all but you have forgotten your own sister's son! Now I have to somehow find him and make him a man."
