Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae

Mahaan Sri Seshadri Swamigal of Thiruvannamalai

“Saying that there was nothing to fear, He left.”

Venu Ammal’s daughter, Balammal, was on her deathbed, struck with tuberculosis. One day Swamiji chanced to pass by her house when Kuzhumani Narayana Sastrigal1, rushed to Mahaan and invited him to her house.

She brought a plate containing sacred ash and pleaded with Him to cure her daughter. Swamiji applied part of the sacred ash on His forehead and part on her forehead. He also partook of upma brought by Kuzhumani Sastrigal and also fed her some of it. Saying that there was nothing to fear, he left. Swami had cured Balammal’s Tuberculosis!

Wonder of wonders, the very next day Balammal recovered gradually. In the course of the next 10 days she staged a full recovery and looked like a beautiful doll. She lived for eight years thereafter and left behind a progeny of three children. This was another case of miracle wherein Swamiji had rescued a person from the jaws of death.

Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae

God is invisible: it is through the form of a Sathpurusha

that He is seen in the world.”

Q) Who is a Sathpurusha?

A) The whole creation is in the state of Para-Brahma (Lord of Universe). The only point is that very few human beings (one in millions) with the help of punya arising out of sathkarmas are able to experience their Real Original State (Self-Realization). The one who has attained the state of Poorana Purusha is called Sathpurusha.

A Sathpurusha is a Perfect Spiritual Master.

He is also known by the name – Siddhapurusha, or SathGuru.

He is the Maharaja, or the Shehan Shah – the King of Kings….

He is an Avatar in Human form of Divine Incarnation of Lord of Universe or a Mahaan (The Great One) or Para-Brahma or Aadhi Moolam.

One should stick to Him.

Q) What are the hallmarks of a Sathpurusha?

A) A Sathpurusha is seen to behave as he likes. They are never attached to, or affected by, anything they do or see, since, during all those actions, they are always beyond the state of the gross body, (i.e. they are in a liberated state) Such a Sathpurusha, always in a liberated state, is called a Jivanmukta. (Shirdi Sai Baba, Sri Seshadri Swamigal).

They know for a fact that the world is really non-existent. They know that it comes into existence in one’s own imagination. They can bring the world and the imagination into existence through their powers, and grace the world. They can bring about any change they like, in the world. They act, irrespective of the world.

They can experience themselves as the whole world, or, on the contrary, experience that the world does not exist. A Sathpurusha is beyond the worldly state. These are some of the signs of a Jivanmukta.

The one who always remembers within his mind the form of his SathGuru enjoys the state of liberated soul-the state of a Jivanmukta.
