TIRUVANNAMALAI

On the same night Lord Siva advised bhakta Kandappa to reside at Isanya thirtham thenceforward. The Udayar met Kandappa Desikar as bid by Lord Siva and got the boon. Later, when Kandappa Desikar went on ministering to the wants of sick and suffering, his fame spread far and wide. A European Collector suffering from incurable Asthma met him, and was cured miraculously. It cemented his faith in the Desikar, and so he wanted to give him lands. When expressed, Desikar in his inimitable humility said that he could grant as much as he liked to Lord Siva. He did. Once when he was riding fast to Tiruvannamalai for car festival, he was obstructed by heavy floods in the river Pennar. 

Unmindful of the danger, he rode his horse with implicit faith in God and 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 miles off. The collector meeting him explained, but for Desikar, he would not have been alive to tell the miracle and acknowledge his gratitude. There are many more such miracles produced by the soul power of the worshippers of Lord Siva, whose munificence emancipated millions of adorers. This Arunachala Ardhanariswarar has a passion for pure devotion and so no applicant ever grumbled of disappointment, when prayed soulfully.
