Bala Chandran Gunasekaran with his family prepared food and served the elderly and the handicapped and mentally challenged inmates of Pusat Jagaan Insan Istimewa in Semenyih again today. As today was Sathayam star, an auspicious day for dealing with one's karma, Bala decided to serve the unfortunate this day.
After distributing the food at this home, he went over to another home in the neighbourhood that was run by the Pertubuhan Kebajikan Kasih Keluargaku, where children from 2 years to 11 years of age are cared for. Thondu Seivom and AVM joined him.
After the annadhanam for today, Bala was surprised with an Aasi Kandam reading by Agathiyar. Agathiyar mentions today's annadhanam! He mentions the merits in feeding people. Agathiyar also mentions our recent trip to India too.
Agathiyar's revelation that food given out during annadhanam shall turn into medicine for all illnesses reminds me of Dr VM Jayapalan's audio on the origin of Agathiyar's temple at Agasthiyampalli. Food dispensed with Agathiyar's name and nama japam by an old man in the outskirts of the king's kingdom during a famine, cured and fed the people including the king.
