Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae
“YOU MAY INSTRUCT THEM TO BATHE ME IN HOT WATER HEREAFTER.”
It was the beginning of the year 1962. “Astagraha Shanthi” pujas were going on in the ‘Mutt” in the immediate presence of His Holiness Jagadguru Saranga Desikendra Swamiji of Kumbakonam. On the first day the pujas went on late into the night. It must have been 2.30 a.m. The Swamiji of Kumbakonam in his sub-conscious state saw the vision of the Saint of Chellagurki.
The Saint said to him, “Can you not realize the difference in age between Myself and yourself?” I am getting on in years and can’t stand a cold water bath, which the priests are giving me every day. You may instruct them to bathe me in hot water hereafter.”
Instructions have since been given to he priests to bathe the Swamiji’s idol in hot water.
