when the Collector, was riding fast to Tiruvannamalai for the car
festival, he was obstructed by heavy floods in the river Pennar.
Unmindful of the danger, he rode his horse with implicit faith in
chanting his Guru's name. Desikar received the telepathic message
and stretched his hand to the South and lowered it a little. And lo!
it lifted the sinking collector and brought him to his asram, some
collector meeting him explained all that happened during his trip.
And said then, but for Desikar, he would not have been alive to tell
the miracle or acknowledge his debt. There are many more such
miracles produced by the soul powers of the worshippers of Lord
Siva, whose munificence emancipated millions of adorers. This august
Arunachal has a passion for pure devotion and so, no supplicant ever
grumbled of disappointment, when prayed soulfully. Nor reached the
sannidhi with the self-same complaint. These are unpalatable to the
agnostics and dismiss them as bunkum; for, they are high
intellectuals and greatly honourable among the honourable.
