Chapter 17-Veerambotlayya’s Pilgrimage

Veeram Botlayya the incarnation of Lord Sriman Narayana removed all his ornaments and applied ash on his body, wore saffron clothes, held kamandalam, a rosary of Rudraksha beads, and set out for pilgrimage.

He visited great sacred places Mahanandi, Omkareswar, Sri Sailam, Madhura, Sri Rangam, Chiyali, Chidambaram, Rameswaram and there he preached Advaita Vedanta (Non-Dualism concept) to all the sages out there.

Finally he moved towards ‘Hari Hara Puram’ village and identified a deserted lonely area where he sat in his Dhyana and decided to stay there for some days. He was looking for some divine act to happen and waiting for someone to meet him there.


FOOTNOTES

Whatever acts self realized Yogis perform; there remains a hidden purpose in them. They don’t take any step without any purpose.
If we study the life history of great self realized people like Sri Adishankaracharya, Paramacharya of Kanchi Mutt, Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, Swami Vivekananda, Ramana Maharshi etc., we would understand this fact more clearly.
