Few great men remain great even after their death and Sri Sri Sri Shivakumara Swami is one such legend. The seer who was respected by millions passed away at 11:44 AM. After knowing the last wish of the walking god, one would be forced to shed a tear. Such was the greatness of the Trivida Dasohi (a name given as the seer was providing free food, education, and shelter through his Guru Kula houses).
Now a report has revealed the last wish of the Siddaganga Mutt Seer. It was announced that at 11:44 am the seer died but this news was announced at around 1:45 in the afternoon. Thinking why such a delay in announcement?
It was because of the last wish of Sri Sri Sri Shivakumara Swami.
Yes, Sri Sri Sri Shivakumara Swami had said that no matter at what time he dies, but the news should be conveyed to the world only after the mid day meals are consumed by the children of his schools.
The Siddaganga Mutt feeds around 9000 children and nearly 3000 piligrims every day. And if the death of Sri Sri Sri Shivakumara Swami would be announced at 11:44, none of them would consume the meals due to the grief of their beloved seer’s departure. But the seer didn’t give an opportunity for it. Even the last wish of the walking god was in benefit of thousands.
The cremation of the seer will be conducted at 4:30 pm on Tuesday (22nd January) from outisde the 600 year old Siddalinga Matha in Tumakuru, which is about 60 km northwest of Bengaluru. After knowing the passing way of the seer, PM Modi said “I have had the privilege to visit the Sree Siddaganga Mutt and receive the blessings of His Holiness Dr. Sree Sree Sree Sivakumara Swamigalu. The wide range of community service initiatives being done there are outstanding and are at an unimaginably large scale”.
