Om SathGuru Sri Seshadi Swamigal Thiruvadikkae


Mahaan Sri Seshadri Swamigal

Self-Illumination (Self-Realization) – Attained by a devotee of

Sri Seshadri Swamigal of Thiruvannamalai by His magical touch

“The camphor has lit up, what could I do?”


Murugesa Mudaliar of Chittoor (A.P.) was the co-brother of Sivaprakasa Mudaliar, the police prosecuting Inspector at Thiruvannamalai. He had retired as a Sub- Registrar. Having heard so much about Swamiji, he developed a yearning to see him. On one occasion he had to come to Thiruvannamalai with his entire family to attend to some obsequies. At that time he met Swamiji and prostrated before him. One day he prayed to Swamiji to impart spiritual knowledge. Seeing his pure heart and strength of determination, Swamiji one day took him to the sanctum of Lord Muruga (Lord Kartik) at the Kambathu Illayanar Shrine, made him sit down and lightly pressed his head with right hand. Right away, Self-Illumination dawned on Murugesa Mudaliar, who became ecstatic and jumped with joy.

He ran out shouting loudly, “Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Seshadri Seshadri!” He danced, sang and jumped up, and down. He did not even notice that his dhoti had slipped off. He was totally bereft of so-called decency and his body senses. People started gathering wondering whether it was a disease or what. Siva Prakasa Mudaliar and other relatives were un-nerved and asked Swamiji what had happened.

Swamiji replied, “He is Pattinathu Pillai (a saint of that name in his previous birth) and was ready for spiritual instruction and sought it and I imparted the same.”

The camphor has lit up, what could I do?”

Siva Prakasa Mudaliar and other relatives ran after him. For two or three days he was in ecstasy and ran to Ramanashram and other places shouting Rama Nama and doing things in a peculiar manner and did not pay any heed to the relatives plea to come back. Therefore Siva Prakasa Mudaliar requested Swamiji to bring him back home. By chance Swamiji saw him near the Sadhu Chatram and in gentle voice told him, “You can go home.” Immediately after that Murugesa Mudaliar returned to his co-brother’s house.

Siva Prakasa Mudaliar saw Swamiji that midnight at the temple of Lord Muruga (Lord Karthik) (Kambathu Ilayanar Srine situated inside Sri Arunachaleshwar Temple). Swamiji told him that Murugesa Mudaliar could not bear the illumination. It worked on his brain. Since that was very powerful, it will take few days to become normal. Accordingly, he became perfectly peaceful and returned to his normal self after few days. Later he was living at Chittoor as a spiritually enlightened person.

Swamiji imparting spiritual instruction through touch! (Sparsa Diksha)

Love rules the court, the camp, the grove,

The men below and saints above,

For love is heaven and heaven is love.”
