Meicheri Pattu Sastrigal once went to Kanchi for Swamigal's Darshan. He had performed Anusham pooja at home and carried the Prasdam to offer it to Him. Swamigal partook the Prasadam.
He asked Mama , "Are you doing Well? '
"Periyava, with your Grace, Mercy, Pitchai, I am doing well!"
"May all of you be well. Nanna Kshmema irungo", said He, raising His Both Hands.
"I want Periyava's Pada Darshanam", said Mama.
Vedapuri Mama who was present nearby removed the cloth that was on Swamigal's leg. His Lotus Feet were now visible!
Periyava then lifted His Legs for Mama! Mama patted his cheeks and went out Crying.
And a few hours later that same day Swamigal attained Mukthi.
Yes, that day was January 8th 1994! And it was an Anusham day! Like it was yesterday January 6th, 2016, Swamigal's Anusham and Aradhana! And today January 8th, 2016 is His Mukthi 22 years back per the English Calendar.
Even on the last Day of His illustrious 100 years He lived for us. Until the last Nanosecond.
A flood of Tears is welling up inside me.
