What does Deergh Aayushmaan Bhavah really mean?
Four or five learned people who had come for Darshan of Kaanchee Mahaa Periyavaal, were sitting before him. In the course of his conversation (with the devotees), Periyavaal asked them - "When Bhakt do Namaskaaram to me, I bless them by uttering 'Naaraayan, Naaraayan' . What do you people who are Sansaaree say for blessing?"
They said - "We say - 'Deergh Aayushmaan Bhavah'; that is the custom."
Periyavaal remained in silence for sometime, then he said - "The meaning
you all said is a wrong one."
"Of the twenty-seven Yog, one is named Aayushmaan. Of the eleven Karan, one is the called the Bhava. Among the week days, the Saumya Vaasar falls on a Wednesday. When all these three - on a Wednesday, the Aayushmaan Yog and the Bhava Karan -- occur together, that day is said to be Shlaagya. Therefore, if these three occur together, whatever good Phal would be got, I bless that you may get all those Phal...". This is what it means." concluded Mahaa Periyavaal to their astonishment.
