Senjukal Tribe’s Assistance
The members of Senjukal tribe heard about Swamigal’s imminent arrival to Srisailam from the devasthanam officials. A group of hundred tribals came to Nagalutti to have darshan of our Swamigal and promised to provide whatever help they could to His Holiness. They were well built and excelled at archery. Normally, they would not let outsiders come through their hills. Initially, they were hesitant, but later provided safety against wild animals and also helped carry cargo up the steep hills. When Swamigal asked the mutt officials to offer monetary compensation, they refused any money. They had the practice of performing a dance before dignitaries who visited their land. They wanted to perform their dance before our Swamigal and entertain him. Swamigal agreed and watched them perform a bit from each of their dances. Later he gave them fruits and vibhuti and requested that delicious and sumptuous food to be given to them. Their pleasure knew no bounds after receiving blessings from our Swamigal.
