Journey from Hyderabad
Having stayed for more than 44 days in Hyderabad, arrangements were made to depart for Swamigal’s Ganga yatra on 22-4-1934. As the upcoming part of the journey was considered to be difficult, Swamigal decided to leave a part of his entourage there and proceed onwards. The people of Hyderabad who were fortunate to have associated with our Swamigal for more than a month, were concerned as to when they would get
such an opportunity again. Thousands gathered at the mutt on that day and Swamigal blessed each and every one of them and gave them mantrakshadhai. The entire city including government officials, businessmen, rich and poor, gathered to take leave.
Swamigal accepted the invitation of the people of Secunderabad and stayed for a day at the house of Sri Krishan Shetty, grandson of Diwan Bahadur Ramgopal Shetty and conducted puja there. He left Secunderabad the next day.
