How would Thy know the greatness of Thy name!

Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae


Our Beloved Guruji, His Holiness, His Grace, RajaRishi, Sathguru Sri Rajalinga Swamigal has been an epitome of Divine Love, Compassion and Sacrifice.


A Holy Saint, a Siddhapurusha, a Sathpurusha, a RajaRishi, our Guruji has been the Divine Incarnation of our Lord Sri SeshaNatha.

What has He lived for that He could speak of…except us and Mahaan…

Guruji has once said, (in His own words,) “To me, SeshaBhaktha Samaajam, and Sesha are the same…”


Avathar Sri Seshadri Bhaktha Samaajam pays homage to His Holiness, and dedicates this beautiful Abhang of Sant Tukaram at Guruji’s Lotus Feet…

Guruji is the flower whose fragrance, only we (His Samaajam) can realize. Not Him. What would He know of His Greatness?

 

Please listen to “Kamodini Kaya Jaane”

कमोदिनी काय् जाणॆ तो

परिमळ भ्रमर सकळ भॊगित सॆ

Kamodini kaaya jaaNe to

parimaLa Bhramara sakaLa bhogita se

It is the bee that appreciates the fragrance,

not the flower

कैसें तुज ठावॆं

नाही तुझॆं नाम्

आम्हीच तॆं प्रॆमसुख जाणॊं

kaise tuja ThaavEM

naahIM tujhEM nAm

AmhIcha tE premasukha jANOM

How would your realize the greatness of Thy name!

It is only us, who experience Your Loving Grace, know it….

मातॆ तृण बाळा

दुधाचि तॆ गॊडी

ज्याचि न यॆ जॊडी

त्यासी कामा

maatE truNa baaLaa

dudhaachI te gODI

jyaachi na ye jODI

thyaasI kaamaa

A cow eats grass and nourishes its calf with milk.

The one who possesses does not use it…!

तुका म्हणॆ मुक्ता फ़ळ

शिंपीपॊटीं

नाही त्याचि भॆटी भॊगती यॆ

tukaa mhaNe muktaa faLa

shiMpIpOTIM

naahIM tyaachi bheTI bhogathi ye

Tuka says, the shell does not need the pearl inside it.

it exists only for the enjoyment of others…!

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
