The village cattle owners sent their cowherds with him along with the starving quadrupeds. With the departure of Gopayya, there descended adversity in the life of Tirupathamma. Her mother-in-law aided and abetted by her jealous, in scrupulous daughter fried her alive day in 'and day out. Life became a living death, and every minute a torture that sapped her life. She was then afflicted by a skin disease, horrible in nature and unendurable even by any strong willed too. Neither medicine, nor treatment was extended. To crown, as it were she was kept in a dingy, stinking cow shed-none to look after her needs. An aged attendant by name Papamma, the only humanist she banked upon for help was out of station. So she tasted Yamayatana while living. Yet her faith in God and his benignty never waned She, clung to the Lord's feet awaiting her earthly Lord's return.

He came and learnt what was meted to her. Entrusting her to the care of that good old woman, he went again to bring the cattle home. Alas! he did not. In the act of saving cows from a dreadful tiger he met with his death. Telepathic news of his tragic end came to her. She at once decided to burn near self in Yogagni, like Mother Sati, possible only to Devatasris. The elders of the village community at last witnessed the terrific end of Tirupathamma's burning herself in Yogagni.
