Seshadri Swamigal and Ramana Maharshi

Seshadri Swamigal and Ramana Maharshi were contemporaries. Seshadri actually arrived at Arunachala six years earlier than Ramana. When Ramana Maharshi came to Tiruvannamalai seven years after Seshadri Swamigal's arrival, Seshadri took care of Ramana Maharshi. Sri Seshadri tried to protect the young swami who seemed quite unaware of his body and surroundings. He cleansed Ramana's blood-oozing wounds and revealed Ramana as a [saint] to the world

Seshadri Swamigal was born on January 22, 1870  in kanchipuram. At age  offour Seshadri received his nickname, 'Golden Hand'. 

At age  14, his father Sri Varadarajar died unexpectedly. Kamakoti Sastrigal took the family to live at Vazhur. It was there that Swamiji completed his education. Aged 17 his mother died, and Seshadri's 
At the age of 19, he met Sri Balaji Swamigal, a wandering saint from North India, who gave Seshadri sannyas and instructed him in the Mahavakyas. Shortly after Seshadri started to travel to various spots in Tamil Nadu eventually ending up at Tiruvannamalai, at the age of 19. Seshadri Swami moved about Tiruvannamalai for 40 years, an ascetic with a total disregard for either name or form.

Throughout his life and teachings Sri Seshadri continuously emphasised the glory of Arunachala. He often talked about the unique aspects of the Arunachala kshetra. 

He would say: 'This is the place where Swamy and Ambal invite all and confer liberation', and 'Lord Krishna leaving aside his sudarshana chakra (divine weapon) is playing on his flute. On hearing it Lord Siva who is inside the mountain comes out and dances'.

Sri Seshadri Swami had deep devotion to God, especially in the form of the Goddess Kamakshi, Lord Ram and Arunachala. Sri Seshadri was a great worshipper of Shakti. In the practice of concentration he sat steeped in samadhi, oblivious of his body.

Sri Seshadri died on January 4, 1929. His body was not cremated but buried, as is the custom in the case of a saint.[2]
