AVATHAR and MAHAAN SRI SESHADRI SWAMIGAL on the Glory and Divinity of our Swamiji

Sesha Mahaan Graces His Bhaktha Samaajam with His Divine Darshan…


6th. October, 2010


On the evening of 6th. October, 2010, at Thiruvannamalai, Shri. Seetharaman and Shri. Senthil were at Guruji’s Samaadhi Shrine, offering their prayers.

It was the hour of twilight, and in the hour of solitude, with none except themselves, the young devotees of our Lord had just lit a lamp and sat close to our Guru, at His Sacred Spot…

In the midst of their soulful prayers, they happened to notice a young beautiful ascetic clad in white, (circumambulate) our Guruji’s Sannidhi. He looked about 20 or 21 years of age, and His face bore a Divine radiance and a beautiful smile.

Addressing our friends, He asked them if they knew that it was Sri Vallalar’s birthday (Saint Sri Ramalinga Adigal), to which they said they didn’t know about it.

He then asked if the Shrine belonged to a Parama Bhaktha of Sri Seshadri Swamigal (our Guruji), to which our young friends replied in the affirmative. Smiling, He said our Guruji was a great ‘Mahaan’, and that He possessed immense powers and so did His Sannidhi…

He then continued to talk to them, asking if they followed the Divine instructions of Noble Guruji. They nodded, a little perplexed. He then instructed them not to have any Asaiva (non-vegetarian) food. He reminded them that it was one of Guruji’s significant instructions! A little confused, Shri. Seetharaman nodded in assent, but Shri. Senthil, quite guilty, immediately agreed to abide by His instructions, ( – Shri. Senthil had in fact, the same morning, consumed Asaiva food. This fact was not known to Shri. Seetharaman!)

He then inquired about the young devotees…Shri. Seetharaman informed Him that he had a shop of his own, to which the young Divine ascetic replied that He knew all about him, and that his health would soon be completely fine! Shri. Senthil then informed Him that he had just completed his education and was on the lookout for a job. Immediately, the ascetic blessed him saying he would get a job within a week! He instructed Shri. Senthil to treat at all his guests with love and respect, and take good care of them.

Saying this, He was about to leave, when our fellow devotees inquired after His Holy Self, to which His Divine Self replied, “I just came straight here, from the Holy Hill of Arunachala!”

He then came to Shri. Senthil, and as an aside, instructed him, “Do not consume food that is Asaiva.”

With the instruction, “Follow your Guru’s words…”,

…He then left, with His Beautiful, Lovely Form and Golden words,..lingering in their hearts…

… and with the dust of His Beautiful Golden Rubicund Feet enshrined in our hearts…
