Chellapa Initiates Two Disciples

a. Following the initiation of his two disciples, Chellap- paswami sent them off in different directions, declaring that you can’t tie two elephants to the same post. b.To prepare Yogaswami for his initiation, Chellappaswami required him, along with a second disciple, to sit on a large stone slab. For 40 days the pair meditated and fasted. To end the fast, the guru prepared a meal, handed a bowl to each and then kicked the bowls from their hands, declaring, “That is all I have for you!”

Darshan coming from the great temples of our Gods can change the patterns of karma dating back many past lives, clearing and clarifying conditions that were created hundreds of years ago and are but seeds now, waiting to manifest in the future.
