Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae
” DEATH WILL NOT COME TO YOU FOR THESE 11 DAYS.”
Krishnadas approached Sri Eknath one day and humbly beseeched him to complete the Ramayana he was writing because an astrologer, who had never been known to make a mistake in his predictions, had told him that his time to leave this world had arrived.
The old man had tears in his eyes as he viewed his life’s work and ambition to be destined to remain incomplete. He looked at Saint Eknath with pleading anxiety and said:
“Maharaj, kindly finish it for me!” Eknath read the manuscript and liked it and so asked him: “How long do you need to complete it yourself?”
“Eleven days,” replied the Brahmin.
“Good,” said Saint Eknath, “You can stay here and complete it in peace. Death will not come to you for these 11 days.”
Thus Krishnadas stayed at Saint Eknath’s place and went on writing. After 11 days the Ramayana was duly completed and he expired peacefully, his soul at rest.
