KALADI - THE BIRTH PLACE OF ADI SANKARA

Yet another miracle occurred. One day while Sankara was taking his bath in the river he was caught by the leg by a crocodile. The mother heard his cries and ran to the river only to see his beloved son dragged to the river. She stood in horror. At this crucial moment the son said to his mother that there was only one way of, release from the jaws of the monster and that was she should allow him to enter the sanyasa ashram. The helpless mother had no alternative but to agree. And the crocodile let him go.

Before taking leave of her, Sankara assured her that he would be with her in her last days and would perform the funeral rites, which he did.
