Shri. Shankar’s Experience – Witnessing the Maha Deepam at Thiruvannamalai

Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae

 

Namaskarams,

With Mahan’s Grace I visited Thiruvannamalai and it was so wonderful and touching to see the Maha Deepam.

Thiruvannamalai was flooded with people that day. We never expected so much of a crowd. Our car stopped 4 km ahead of Guruji’s Samadhi Sthalam.

The day before we left for Thiruvannamalai, while chanting the Mahan Mantra I prayed to Mahan that as I’m taking my friends’ parents for the first time to Thiruvannamalai, all of us should have a comfortable journey. Suddenly I felt a voice within me: “GO TOMORROW, AND I WILL TAKE CARE….”

These experiences instill more faith in my heart.

I might have called 20 to 25 hotels for advance room booking in Thiruvannamalai and they were all house full and were booked for a week. But with Mahan and Guruji’s Grace I did find one newly built guest house “SESHA BHAVAN”. I called them and they said they did have 2 rooms available. It was much of a relief. This done, I booked the room and cab.

While on the way to Thiruvannamalai, the thought about the avaialability of the room, troubled me a lot. But something within me still gave me a feeling of reassurance that the rooms were still available!!

Soon after reaching Thiruvannamalai I called the guest house and to my surprise the owner told me that no matter what happens she would keep 2 rooms booked for us at any cost. Another great thing was that the guest house was very close to Guruji’s House.


When we entered our room I was so happy to see Mahan Sesha’s photo right in front of the door and the Holy Arunachala’s beautiful view through the window. This is truly Mahan’s Grace. He really took care of four of us amidst a flood of lakhs of people!!

Two years back, while speaking to Guruji over the phone, I told him that I wished to visit Thiruvannamalai on the occasion of Karthigai Deepam and He said it would happen once in my life time, and His words did come true, this year!!



Mahan is Great!! Guruji is Great!!
