Long Stay at Thiruvidaimaruthur
After the Mahamagam, Swamigal stayed at Thiruvidamaruthur for a long time. Sankara mutt was situated in the Thirumanjana Street immediately next to the front door of Mahalinga Swamy temple. This temple has been the subject of songs composed by Appar and the other three Saivite saints. Sri Adi Sankara had also stayed there and had darshan of Sri Mahalinga Swamy. It is mentioned in Sankara Vijayam that when Acharya was praying to the Lord, a figure appeared from the lingam, lifted its right hand and said “Advaitam is the Satyam – Truth” and disappeared.
Celebrations where the Lord is taken in the Silver Chariot were held in the lunar month of Thai in the year 1933. Our Swamigal was welcomed for the occasion by Thiruvaduthurai Adheenam SrilaSri Vaidyalinga Swami. Swamigal greatly praised the service done by Adheenakartha at such an elderly age and appreciated the way the temples and other rituals are being maintained under him. Sri Adheenakartha performed bikshavandanam on 14-3-1933 and the mutt’s expenses for the day were incurred by the Adheenam.
