Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae
THEY HAD HEARD THE SOUNDS OF FOOTSTEPS AT NIGHT”
Amadali Venkatappa had to leave his place on account of the plague epidemic. He had perforce to leave all his belongings in his house but then, he was a big man and had big transactions. There was the fear of robbers. He could neither go out of the place nor stay in it. Venkatappa sought the Swamiji’s protection and blessing, as he wanted to go away from the place. On assurance given by the Swamiji Venkatappa left the place. After his return, the neighbours asked Venkatappa to whom he had entrusted the custody of his house because they had heard the sounds of footsteps at night. Somebody appeared to be coughing. Venkatappa was not surprised. Duly came his reply that the Swamiji was looking after his house. On hearing this, the thieves had not the courage to go near the house of Venkatappa.
