Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae
Mahaan Sri Seshadri Swamigal of Thiruvannamalai
“Saying that there was nothing to fear, He left.”
Venu Ammal’s daughter, Balammal, was on her deathbed, struck with tuberculosis. One day Swamiji chanced to pass by her house when Kuzhumani Narayana Sastrigal1, rushed to Mahaan and invited him to her house.
She brought a plate containing sacred ash and pleaded with Him to cure her daughter. Swamiji applied part of the sacred ash on His forehead and part on her forehead. He also partook of upma brought by Kuzhumani Sastrigal and also fed her some of it. Saying that there was nothing to fear, he left. Swami had cured Balammal’s Tuberculosis!
Wonder of wonders, the very next day Balammal recovered gradually. In the course of the next 10 days she staged a full recovery and looked like a beautiful doll. She lived for eight years thereafter and left behind a progeny of three children. This was another case of miracle wherein Swamiji had rescued a person from the jaws of death.
