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….

Om Sathguru Shri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae

Kripa and Kripa-Patra

Everybody desires the Grace of God, the Grace of a Sathpurusha. Kripa (the Holy Grace), does bestow endless happiness on the receiver. If one is already qualified, he receives it at the first meeting. If one is not qualified, he cannot receive it, even if the Satpurusha is ready to bestow it!

A Sathpurusha, having gone beyond the state of the world, treats an eligible devotee, (whose time for attaining the Real God has arrived), in a way contrary to the state of the world. Everybody requests the Sathpurusha, or God, for his Kripa. With his Kripa a Satpurusha not only bestows worldly happiness, but also showers on one, the Infinite Bliss! But then, one has to be eligible enough to receive either.

When a devotee is eligible, he is said to be Kripa-patra.

Kripa-Patra

Patra means container.

Usually, a particular container is used for a particular item. (For instance, a container used for oil is always used for oil, and not for water). If this oil container has to be used for another item, then the oil has to be removed first, the container fully cleaned and only then can it be used for another article, not otherwise. Similarly, it is obvious that the same container cannot be used for different articles. If all of them are put in the same container, none of them would be of any use; all would have been wasted.

In the same analogy, each one of us has different Patras, of different sizes, to store the Kripa, we receive. Often times, all these containers are already full. It is hence that even when a Sathpurusha gives you his Kripa, you have no empty container to store it in; that is why you do not experience the Kripa that is showered on you by Him. It means that you are not qualified enough.

Imagine, a friend of yours sends you some delicious pure fresh homemade ghee. As you receive it, you obviously would like to have it. You try to find a suitable container for it, and discover that all of your various containers are full.

In a situation where you can neither find an empty vessel, nor empty any one of the others, the only thing you could possibly do is to return it half-heartedly with a note of thanks.

Similar is the situation, when a Sathpurusha bestows his Kripa. You would naturally love to have it. But then, if you have not an empty vessel or, you could not empty one, you would not be able to keep that gift with you – you will have to return it!

Q) What are the containers you possess?

A) The mind and its reasoning are the containers!

They are filled with all sorts of things and you are not able to utilize them for holding the pure-ghee like Kripa, bestowed on you.

If one of the containers you have holds a dry substance like corn, well, you can empty it, and store that ghee in it. But if the container is soiled, and had dirty things like coal or tar in it, then it would take a long while for you to clean it sufficiently enough, to hold the pure ghee in it.

To clean a vessel containing coal or tar, it has to be treated with kerosene, burnt, scrapped, rubbed clean with sand, etc.. It’s a painstaking and laborious process to clean it. Similarly, if your mind is soiled by ill thoughts and tainted by evil or inordinate desires and lusty pleasures, you would have to labour hard for a long time to clean yourself well, to store the pristine Grace (Kripa – the ghee), of the Divinity in you. You do not become qualified enough to experience the benefits of Kripa, unless your mind is rid of all desires.

Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae


To comprehend God and His supernatural power, miraculous, limitless and boundless, one has to merge into Him. No human can feel this, without seeking the Divinity!

When the Sathpurusha (SathGuru or Siddhapurusha) feels like bestowing his grace he does it secretly; he has some deep thoughts to convey; when he speaks of them, they are generally not understood by anybody else. His words are of great significance. They are voiced from the mouth of the Para-Brahma.

Sometimes the Sathpurusha is seen ordering somebody about, in an irrelevant manner, or give one, a blade of grass, or a lump of earth, or flowers, or money. Sometimes he may abuse one or beat them. Sometimes he is seen receiving some things from others. He is always seen doing certain actions openly, certain others, secretly.

When one witnesses these actions, one should never try to find out the meaning or the motive of those actions. His words and actions should always be remembered and stored deep in one’s heart. The more secretly they are stored, the earlier they are able to bear fruit.

The Sathpurusha always removes the punya (good karma), that is likely to give sinful pleasures, or likely to add on to your sins and in return they give the punya that leads to real happiness. As a result of punya they take, they seem to live in the world in a princely style. But never ever, can those pleasures affect them. It is in their destiny to live like a prince.
