Vinayaka, the lord who lifts his devotees
This Sunday, our topic is about Pillayar. Periyava in Deivathin Kural(Voice of God) says as follows
Pillaiyar, looks like a child, but he is also the first to raise the devotees at once. The example of Avvaiyar is enough. Avvaiyar is a great Ganapati devotee. Avvaiyar sang "Vinayagar Agaval" which covers the entire Yoga Shastra, meditating on the Pranava form of Ganesha. If we recite it, we will attain enlightenment. There is a story about Avvaiyar. Sundaramoorthy Nayanar and Cheraman Perumal Nayanar planned to go to Kailasa. They wanted to take Avvaiyar with them. At that time, Avvaiyar was worshiping Vinayaka. Sundaramoorthy and Cheraman hurriedly invited her to come to Kailasa with them as soon as the puja was over. She said, “Go by your plan. I will not speed up my puja for you, ”. They just left. Avvaiyar finished the puja . In the end, she was able to have the darshan of the lord who lifted her and and put her to Kailasa in a single moment! It was only after her, Sundaramoorthy Nayanar and Cheraman Perumal Nayanar reached Kailasa. Before the two of them, in an instant, he had put Avvaiyar in Kailasa. He is Swami Vigneswara, who makes great things effortless.
