The orthodox traditions of the land and bigotry of the priests together with the dogmatic attitude of his-caste brahmins did not admit his entry into the temple. Their rigidity closed the doors against his face without remorse. But it did not dampen his spirits, nor robbed him of his religiosity. He resorted to a novel practice of standing on the balcony of the second floor of his bungalow, to offering mental prayers to the deities with folded hands, facing the sanctum. This he continued for long and it gratified his spiritual thirst.

It was noticed by the temple authorities with amazement, and opened their blinded eyes; for, the sight of an Englishman standing on the balcony and lost in meditation, is something unique and exemplary. They regretted, but not the adamantine, stubborn orthodox priests. After due deliberations with the latter, they decided to make two holes in the temple walls, beside the river Cauvery to enable him to look into the sannidhis and worship the God and Goddess standing from outside, boasting that it was a great concession granted. Does not the omniscient Providence know whom to lift and when ? And how to teach the perverted.
