Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae



My recent divine experience proves that our dear Guruji is still alive in our hearts and will shower his grace upon us every time. Meditation and repeated chanting of our Sesha Mahan mantram will take us closer to the divine. My humble request to all sesha bhaktas is to keep chanting Mahan Mantra as this is what our Guruji wanted all of us to do devotedly.

I’m writing below a few lines thinking about my Lovable Guruji who is my biggest inspiration in life.

Last Saturday evening while in meditation I had a divine darshan of our beloved Guruji who was dressed in White, from neck to foot. He looked at me and smiled at me with a beautiful divine glow on his face. I bowed in front of him and touched his feet.

Om SathGuru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae


“There! Vittobha goes in Royal Style!”

Sookshma Drishti is the ability to perceive subtle objects. The atom is a minute thing. Even more minute is the Jeevaswarupa (Soul). The soul is very minute and there is nothing more minute than it. While the soul is not perceptible for a person with ordinary senses, it becomes manifest to a Brahmajnani. Great sages like Vasisht also possessed this power. The following is an example of Swami’s perceptive power that was innate to Him.

One day Swami was running in the streets of Thiruvannamalai pointing to the sky saying, “There! Vittobha goes in Royal Style! Ah! Ah!” (Sri Vittobha Swami- Maha Samadhi-Polur-34 kms from Thiruvannamalai)

On the day when Swami made the above observation, Sri Vittobha had attained Maha Samadhi. Swami made those remarks at 6 a.m. And at 11 a.m. a telegram was received in Thiruvannamalai that was an intimation of the news. Mahaan had perceived this by virtue of His Sookshma Drishti.

(Sri Vittobha Swami was a jeevan Mukta.)

Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae

People want a Sathpurusha who will behave like their servant and give them whatever they desire at once. A Sathpurusha, i.e. the man in the state of Sath, is an infinite storehouse of the unending Infinite Bliss that is the Siddhanta.

It is the incarnation that descended from Para Brahma (the Lord of the Universe or the creator in the form of Sathpurushas mentioned here, their original state), at whose hands many a miracle has happened.

With His Kripa, a Sathpurusha not only gives world happiness, but also gives them the Infinite Bliss. But then to receive either of them or both of them, one has to be properly qualified. Para Brahma (Lord of universe) is ever lasting, complete, without beginning or end. It is one, indivisible being.

    – Sutra 1. The Holy Science,
    by Sri Swami Yukteswar Giri Maharaj

    (In Tamil Saint Manickavasagar says,”Adhiyum Anthamum illatha Arunachala Easane” i.e. Lord Arunachala of Thiruvannamalai)

The Eternal Father, God, is the only Real Substance, Sath, and is all in all in the universe and therefore not comprehensive by man of this material world, unless he becomes divine by lifting his Self above this creation of Darkness or Maya.

    See Hebrews (Bible) 11.1 and John (Bible) 8:28:

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

Then Jesus said unto them, when ye have lifted up the son of man, then shall ye know that I am He.”

Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae

Guhan steered a boat. Rama embraced him.

Guhan fell into Ganga and died.”

Shri G. Venkatarama Iyer was a learned man. He was a great devotee of Lord Rama. One day he was asked to address a sangam in Thiruvannamalai on the subject, Guhan’s friendship.”

He had a high regard for Swamigal. When he was on his way to deliver his discourse he came across Swami, who asked him where he was going. He said that he was to deliver a talk on “Guhan friendship” and that he could not muster his thoughts and was confused and requested Swami to give him guidance. Swami uttered the above in response and asked him to proceed with the talk. Accordingly he elaborated the above and completed his talk. The three sentences of Swami refer to Karma, Bhakthi and Gnanam.

Every one should perform the duty enjoined on him without any motive and that constitutes Karma. Guha was a boatman and he and he did his duty by rowing the boat. To worship God with a pure mind is Bhakthi. Guha thus worshiped Rama and Rama embraced him. This refers to Bhakthi yoga. Ridding one’s mind of differentiation is Gnana.

Mukthi means becoming one with the all pervading. Guhan fell into the Ganga and died”, refers to Gnana yoga and its aim of attaining moksha. Thus Swami summed up the entire gamut of spirituality in the above pithy sentences.
