08. November 26, 1989 Guru Mahadev bestows Nayana Diskha at Sadashiva Brahmendral's Samadhi
Om Sri Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae
Once, in November, 1989, Gurudev said, “I had the Darshan of Sri Sadasiva Brahmendral of Nerur, in my dream and He blessed me”.
On the 24th of November 1989, Gurudev said, “Be prepared to go to Nerur with me tomorrow”.
We reached Nerur on the morning of 26th November 1989. (Nerur is 440 kms away from Theroor Ashram (Kavimani Ashram))
We bathed in the river Cauvery, just half a kilometer from ‘Kailash Ashram’ Nerur, the seat of Sri Sadasiva Brahmendral (who attained Jeeva Samadhi in 1780).
Then we sat in front of Brahmendral’s Samadhi at 8.10 a.m.
Gurudev said, “Now I am going to give you Diksha” saying so, he looked at me steadily. By imparting Nayana Diksha, he said, “You have attained GuruHood and you can teach others. You can initiate them.”
The same day we returned to Theroor Ashram.
