SRI YATHEENDRAAL‘S FAME - AS REMEMBERED BY
HIS FAMILY MEMBERS
In 1969 Rajagopalan and his family were in Mandya, Mysore
State They happened to meet Si Andavan Swamigal who was camping there. Swamigal
enquired about the family, native village etc., of Rajagopalan. On telling the Swamigal about his native village being Siddhamalli
of Mannargudy Taluka, immediately Sri Andavan Swamigal asked Rajagopalan about Sri Subramania Sastrigal . Sri Andavan Swamigal
at once recalled and said that he had learnt Sastras,Vedas Upanishads etc.
from Subramania Sastrigal. Andavan Swamigal also praised Sri Subramania Sastrigal as MAHAN. When Rajagopalan informed about
his relationship (Rajagopalan is the son of Vembu Iyer, brother of Sri Subramania
Sastrigal), Sri Andavan Swamigal became very happy and accorded warm reception
to him and Blessed him with shawls and Prasadams. Sri Andavan Swamigal explained about our Sastrigal's fame to the thousands
of audience gathered there!! Such was the fame of Sri Subramania Yatheendraal.
A Living Sage indeed!
