Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae
SATHGURU SRI RAJALINGA SWAMIGAL of THIRUVANNAMALAI
SWAMIGAL’S LOVE AND GRACE ON HIS ARDENT DEVOTEE
Shri. Velu, residing in Thiruvannamalai, had known Guruji for the past 6 months. In this short span of time, Shri. Velu’s love for his Swami was so firmly and deeply established, that his relationship and Divine experiences with Swamigal, leave a profound impact on all of us. It brings great rejoicing to all our hearts…
A few months back, when Shri. Velu had visited Swamigal, His Holiness had asked Shri. Velu to sit with Him, and chant Mahaan’s Moola Manthram. After a while when Shri. Velu had been chanting the manthram, the beads of the japa-mala in his hand started to quickly run across his fingers on their own!
It later happened in his own home too, when he was once chanting Mahaan’s manthram…
Recently, in the past month at the time when Guruji was taken ill, Shri. Velu, with his family, had once visited Swami. Guruji, during His illness, had bouts of severe coughing, and was severely short of breath, and barely able to converse. When Shri. Velu was with His Holiness, His cough completely stopped, and Guruji was able to talk to him and his family, for nearly an hour!
Guruji had told him that Velu’s presence made him feel happier and He felt His condition in a better state!
Shri.Velu was Mahaan personified, to have kept our Beloved Guruji in good cheer, during His sickness and ordeal!
Such Devotion and Such Divinity!
Shri. Velu felt the fragrance of Sambrani (Frankincense), all the while, in Guruji and Mahaan’s Presence.
In the days following Swamigal’s Samaadhi, Shri. Velu had been regularly visiting Guruji’s bereaved family, and Swami’s Samaadhi. He was blessed with Swami’s Darshan in the form of a beautiful butterfly, on several occasions.
With such verve, confidence, and sheer joy, he informed us yesterday, that whenever he closes his eyes in prayer, thinking of Guruji, he is blessed with a heart-warming Darshan of His Holiness, in the form of a butterfly, wherever he goes!
He is so inspired by Swami’s showering all His Love and Grace, that he refuses to allow any depressing thought to overcome him.
Blessed is he, who served our Swami, during His last days on earth!
His faith in Guruji shall ever remain an inspiration to all of us….
