MANTRALAYA - BRINDAVAN 

The Munro Episode:

This great miracle as recorded in the government archives runs thus - during the British days, the foreigners unable to assimilate the Indian way of life and its sanctity, ordered the resumption of endowments made during the time of the Nawab of Adoni..

"What a Jagir for a dead brahmin fakir". They decided to lay their Bhasmasura hasta, but with a view to examining the truth of the petitioners, Thomas Munro, an official acquainted with the Hindu way of life and well-versed in Indian traditions was sent by the company. Being a god-minded man, he entered the precincts removing his shoes and hat.

And lo! he explained the position - "If the jagir were to be resumed, neither prayers, nor feeding would be conducted there onwards.
