"Can you stay with Me for 10 days?!"

1) "Can you stay with Me for 10 days?"

"My wife and I went to Hampi to have darshan of Kanchi Swamigal who was camping there. I had His darshan at 10 am. He asked me, "For how many days are you going to stay here?”

"For three days", I replied.

He thought for a while and said, "Can you stay with Me for 10 days?"

I excused myself saying, "I have come on three days casual leave. My office will not extend it!"

The Swamigal said, “ All right you stay here for three days.”

But at 4 pm that day Swamigal told me, "In the morning when I had asked if you can to stay here for 10 days, you said you would not be able to so. Now, I want you leave for Hyderabad tonight itself!"

I was shocked to hear this from Him. Why is He asking me to leave today itself? Was something wrong with my family members back home? Such worries began to consume me.

I bid farewell to Swamigal and left, obeying Him implicitly!

I reached the railway station and cancelled my tickets which were originally for departing Hampi 3 days later. When my wife and I were talking to each other and saying we would travel in an unreserved coach, the Station Master overheard us and informed us that someone had cancelled two berths a little earlier!

He said, “If you are interested I can allot those vacant berths to you.” :)))

Oh, what to say of Swamigal's compassion for me! He had arranged two berths for us!

The next day as the train approached the suburbs of Hyderabad, we found people throwing a stones on the train. We were asked by the Travelling Ticket Examiner to pull down the wooden shutters. And stones were pelted all through the next 45 minutes until we reached Kacheguda station in Hyderabad.

When we alighted from the train we asked the locals if anything was wrong. They said that the Janata Government in Delhi had arrested Indira Gandhi at 7 pm the previous day. As Andhra Pradesh was being ruled by the Congress Party, its members were protesting!

Mrs Gandhi was arrested only at 7 pm. The Swamigal asked me to leave at 4 pm itself! And believe it or not, the trains were cancelled for the next 9 days! In the morning itself He knew that there would not be train services for 9 days and that is why He had asked us if we could stay for 10 days!

And now when I think of how my Compassionate Mother took care of me, I shudder at His mercy!"

2) "Did you not hear Swamigal call out your name?"

"On one occasion, I went, along with my wife, to Karvetnagar in Chittoor district where the Swamigal was camping.

It was evening. He was not in the camp and I was told that He had gone to a nearby village. The people told me that I could reach the village quickly if I could go through the dried fields. Otherwise, it would take a long time, if I took a circuitous route.

As I went along the narrow bunds separating the fields, I found the Swamigal returning to Karvetnagar, walking briskly on the narrow bunds. I walked along with Him to His camp.

There is a big tank in Karvetnagar. When the Swamigal was conversing with some others, I found a foreigner standing, with folded hands, on the other side of the tank. I went to him to find out from which country he had come.

Even as I was talking to him, my wife came running and asking, “Did you not hear Him calling you, Ganesan, Ganesan...?”

Shankara, what blessings!

I immediately returned to where the Swamigal was.

He asked me, “What do you propose to have for dinner?”

I replied that we had brought chapathis with us!

Endowed with great humour, He said, “You brought some chapathis because you did not expect the Sanyasi to you food for dinner?!” :)))

When I just smiled, He said, “I know you have programmed to leave early in the morning. Don’t do so. The government has deprived the Raja of Karvetnagar of the privy purse it had promised. He is now down and out. You wait till lunch time and have food in his house. And, you give him whatever you can!”

The Walking God not only provided food for me but also some money to the former Raja of Karvetnagar.

What a compassion!

3) "Swamigal raised His hand and the car stopped that very instant!"

Once I went to Nandigama, in Krishna district, in my car to have Darshan of Swamigal. I was told that He had gone to a nearby river for a bath. So, I drove my car towards the river. I had to go on an embankment. After I drove a short distance I saw the Swamigal returning along with some persons.

As the embankment was not wide enough to take a U-turn, I started to reverse the car. After few seconds, Swamigal on seeing this, raised His hand. And the car stopped at that very instant! I found agriculturists working in the nearby fields shouting and running towards me. I wondered what was wrong. When I looked back I saw that if the car had moved even an inch it would have fallen down the bund!

Soon, the farmers helped to push the car forward to safety! The Walking God had saved me by stopping my car.


I chanced to meet the richly blessed 'The Hindu' Ganesan Mama and his Mami at my wife's cousin's 60th wedding celebrations at Hyderabad on July 29th, 2015 and boy, did I get a treasure!

Mama was the reporter of The Hindu based out of Hyderabad and had interacted with Swamigal for almost 30 years!

In the picture are Mama and Mami with my wife and myself!

of Rs.14,000/- a month, has suddenly stopped contributing.

I spoke to Shri Thygaraja Sharma a few days back. He said after he completed his 
Veda Adhyayanam at the age of 15, his guru took him to Kanchi Swamigal and told Him proudly, "Only this boy in my class has agreed to teach Vedas!"

To which Swamigal replied, " I am very proud of you! Mother Veda will take care of you, 
you do not worry! You have my complete blessings!"

And he started to teach Vedas at the age of 17 to a first batch of 3 boys!

He told me that checks can be drawn in the name of ' Sri Sankara Gurukulam Acharya

10) Mylapore Veda Adhyayana Sabha

The Mylapore Veda Adhyayana Sabha was established by 

Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati Swamigal — fondly

 known as Paramacharyal — of the Kanchi Mutt in 1932. The

 teachers started by imparting Vedic lessons to the children

 informally. The school was formally registered in 1939.

From its inception, the school has been serving as a centre 

for religious activities. The students are required to 

attend pradoshams at Kapaleeswarar temple.

The school also offered Sanskrit lessons for free to the

general public in those days. In 1939, Dharmambal, a 

devotee of Paramacharyal, donated Rs. 3,000 to the school.

With that, the committee members purchased a land at 

Pichupillai Street, Mylapore, where the school functions now.

For more details, please contact Nandakumar 

Ganapadigal, adhyapakar, at 9444466484.

I spoke to Shri Nandakumar Adhyapakar just now and 

obtained the below online fund transfer details. He said he

 was fortunate to have a darshan of Swamigal in 1988/89. He

9) Govindan Goshala in Madurantakam

Govindan Goshala in Madurantakam, blessed by

 Mahaswamigal and HH Mettur Swamigal!

As ordained by and with the Divine Blessings of Kanchi 

Mahaswamigal , Govindan Goshala has been established 

and is located at Gudalur Village, near Madurantakam. 

Madurantakam is where the famous “Aeri Kaththa Ramar” temple is situated. The distance from Chennai is about 80 kms on the Chennai- Trichy Highway(NH 45)

Govindan Goshala is an attempt to recreate the interest in 

cows and help people involve themselves in Goseva.

An area of 65 acres has been acquired for the Goshala.

From a small beginning of 10 cows in 2004, the Goshala 

now has about 100 cows and bulls and about 100 calves 

almost all of them born in our Goshala over the last 8 years. 

All the cows are of native Chengleput breed and most of them were bought from farmers before being sold for slaughter. 

Necessary infrastructure like water wells, sheds etc have 

been developed. About 2500 trees have been planted 

and water conservation measures like check dams have 

been built. 

About 30 acres are to be utilized for natural grazing

and fodder will be grown in 30 acres so that green fodder is available throughout the year. The entire area will be under 

organic cultivation.

Important visitors and Blessings

The Goshala was blessed by Her Holiness AMMALU

AMMAL of Kumbakonam. A great Saint in the DASA 

tradition, She was a great devotee of Lord Krishna and 

Panduranga. Her entire life was dedicated to serving The 

Lord and Her Divine outpourings contain the essence of the 

Vedas. She was held in very high esteem by none other than 

The Paramacharya of Kanchi. She has visited the Goshala a 

few times and We seek HER continued Blessings for running the Goshala.






TRUST and IT exemption under Sec 80G is available

 for contributions to the trust.

10) Sri Jayam Goshala in Mayavaram

This is located at Kshetrapalapuram near Thirumanancheri

 /Thiruvelvikkudi/  Mayiladuthurai.

11)  Neelangarai Goshala

As discussed I am sending some details about Dr. Sadhna Rao who is more than 75 years old and even in rain or sun, takes care of the cows as a mission sacrificing all her money, her assets and even her jewels at times to run this goshala . I used to contribute some money every month but due to current business situation I am not able to help out.  \
She needs lot of help and any thing that our members can contribute can help those hapless animals spend rest of their days in a shelter and food.

If you can find some time I will take her to you. Her bank details are:
Andhra Bank,
Neelangarai branch
s.b.account no.132710100033564
ifsc code no.ANDB0001327.

Though she is FRCS and studied abroad, as per Mother's(pondicherry Aurobindo Ahsram) instructions, she devotes her time entirely to this cause.

Since she has very little help and not net savvy, members after sending money can send a letter to her at:
Indian Institute of Animal Welfare
no.3 9th South Cross street
Kapaleeswarar Nagar
Chennai 600041.

Contributions can get 80g exemption.

12) Madipakkam Ghoshala

There are couple of cows and calves at Madipakkam maintained by one of our friends. He is a very humble person and has come to us if we can help him by anyways for maintaining the cows. As we all are well aware that " Gho samrakshana is equal to mathru/pithru samrakshana" if we can extend our arms to help him by anyways, it would be great help.. As our Kanchi Mahaperiyava repeatedly insisted about Gho samrakshana and Vedha Samrakshana , we have now an opportunity to utilise. Any one who wish to visit in person, may give a call and visit to see the cows and calves . This way we can encourage Gho samrakshana by all possible means.
