15. Swamigal at the Muktheeshwara temple, Kaveripakkam

Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae

A few days later Avathar Sri Seshadri Swamigal was found in Kaveripakkam (30kms from Kanchipuram). There was a Lord Mukteeshwara, Shiva temple Our Swamigal found his abode there!

One-morning young boy Sesha (cousin of Swamigal) was perambulating with our Swami at 6 a.m. in the inner compound (Prakaram). At that time from a ‘Punna’ tree bottom near the northern wall, a big snake emerged. Sesha cautioned our Swami about the snake. Swami looked at the snake and invited it. It immediately responded, and crept up his hand, curled itself thrice around his neck and spread its hood over his head like an umbrella. Sesha mistook it and ran into the street; crying that his brother had been bitten by a snake. A few seconds later, the snake left Swami and vanished. The people were surprised and deemed it to be a manifestation of Lord Mukteeswara.

Swami’s uncle and aunt arrived from Kanchi to Kaveripakkam. At that moment, Swami was in a state of Samadhi. They, along with several others witnessed the absolutely motionless state of Swamigal, with the belief that Lord Mukteeswara Himself had assumed this human form! With devotion, they shed tears, and prostrated before him spontaneously. The crowd also raised the prayer:

Namah Parvathi Pathaye! Hara Hara Mahadev!”

Our Swamigal awoke. Having blessed the gathering, Swamigal left.
