Abhishekam at Swami’s Shrine

Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae

On the 17th. of September, 2010, at about 4:45 p.m., members of the Sesha Bhaktha Samaajam arrived at Guruji’s Samaadhi Shrine.


Guruji’s Shrine is located a little ahead of the Simha Teertham, adjacent to the Yama Lingam, on the Girivalam path.

With Sesha Mahaan’s Moola Mantram and endearing thoughts of our Beloved Guruji in our hearts, remembering the time when Guruji was interred at this spot, (in the twilight hour,) at about 6 p.m., on the 2nd. of August, 2010.

We gathered here in silence.

We started by cleaning and washing the Shrine with water, and decorating the outer shrine with flowers.We began with performing Abhishekam (anointment) with water.

This was followed by Milk Abhishekam and

Abhishekam with Sandalwood paste.

Finally, an Abhishekam of Vibhuthi (Sacred ash) was done.

This was followed with a decoration of the Shiva Lingam with flowers.

Guruji’s Sparsham (Divine touch)…

Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae

Namaskarams,


Feels great to know about Sesha Bhakthas’ amazing encounters with Guruji’s Divine Darshan in form of beautiful butterflies. Here is what I also wanted to share. I recently went through a similar kind of experience last month on 25th. of August, exactly at 3:00 AM.

I was in office, working on some case, and it suddenly struck me that I needed to go to the nearby ATM. Unaware of the time I went downstairs and realized that it was raining heavily.

Now, there came a beautiful-looking butterfly from outside and it came flittng and struck my forehead exactly at the point where Guruji used to place his thumb. It tried to sit around my shoulders and chest.

Finally, it sat on the wall and I took a picture of it.

It was there for few minutes and flew away somewhere in the dark. I noticed the design of a trishulam on its back.

Guruji’s Divine presence reassures us that He is still in and around us.

Regards,
Shankar

Guruji and Mahaan’s Love

Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae


I wish to share my feelings over an experience of the Love of our Lord, which convinced me that it is not for long that SeshaNatha and Beloved Guruji, allow us to dwell in sadness.

The Love and Compassion of Sesha Mahaan and Guruji is boundless, and all-compassing. Their Divine Presence drowns us in their Love…

It was the 20th. of September 2010, a Monday morning. We were in Bangalore. On and off, the nostalgic thoughts of the happy moments with Guruji kept troubling me. We had just returned from Thiruvannamalai.

Santosh and me had taken Harsha out to a friend’s place, an hour away from home. It was about 10.15 a.m. In the morning. Harsha was playing in the front yard of the house, where there were some potted plants. Santosh was with him. As they were playing, Santosh noticed a beautiful tiny golden yellow butterfly, with brown speckles on it, hover around. Soon it approached them, and it flew straight to Harsha, flit about his face, and sat on his dress for a few moments, before it flew away. We were thrilled.

The next morning too, we were supposed to meet our friends. We were there again at about the same time. This time, I too was outside, waiting. Surprisingly, we noticed the same butterfly come to us again. It was flitting about our faces!

So much more surprising was the fact that Santosh noticed not one, but two tiny golden yellow butterflies, (both looked alike), and both the butterflies came and perched on me – one on my shoulder, and the other on my dress!! It was astounding! After a few moments, the butterflies flew away..

Soon, we went inside the house.

After about a half hour or so, I had to step out of the house to attend a phone call. When I did, I soon found one of the butterflies flit and approach me. I was astonished, that the butterfly was still around, beautifully flitting close by!

In a matter of a few seconds, it came close to my face. I instinctively stepped back, and yet it crept over my dress, and it remained there. What a beautiful feeling it was, to behold our Guardian Angel, our Guruji! As I waited, half-hearted to leave the place, enjoying the Beauty and Grace of our Supreme Master, it was a whole 15 minutes, before I finally was left with no option but to go back inside. (Never in all these years of my life, has a butterfly come to me!)

Before I went in, I captured 2 videos of the Divination:

Thank You Dear Guruji and SeshaNatha for Your Love, without which we could not survive…

Guruji and Sesha Mahaan have been the epitome of Love and Beauty in my life. Where there is sunshine or rain or spring, – it is nothing else, except the Divinity of Guruji and Sesha Mahaan….

Namaskaarams,

Vaishnavi
