It's the fact that many people travel distances and go to extreme limits to reach their goal. Many people have many different goals and dreams. Well, in my country, people travel a lot to visit the temples. Some go there to ask forgiveness, some for fulfilling their wishes, some for vacation and some for fun and exploration. It's always the people who try to reach the god, but sometimes there might be a time when the opposite and unexpected happens. Yes, sometimes the god visits his devotees unexpectedly. Those guys are either very holy and spiritual persons or some great siddhars and maharishis who hardly mingle in this society of ours. But the spiritual persons which i'm talking about are people like Swami Vivekananda, Bhagwan Sri Ramana Maharishi, Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa, Sri Kanchi Periyavar. These people were great people with mind far exceeding than any other ordinary human being. But they didn't perform any magic and miracle like those fraud saints and swamis that fool around now a days. They preached people to lead a better life in this present spoiled and corrupted world. They were the enlightened ones who tried to make this world a better place.
Now i'm going to tell an incident that happened with the Kanchi Periyavar. He was the 68th Jagadguru in the Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam. Many of you know about him a lot more than me and for those who don't know, please google it and you will be shocked to know the life and history of this great man. So, this happened a year before he attained mukti.
