Sadas was conducted for one week. All the Pandits who the attended the Sadas, praised Subramania Sastrigal
for His talent in all subjects. He was declared "ASHTAVADAN".
Sastrigal returned to Madras Central and was given warm
reception by the officials of Kamakoti Peetam with Nadaswaram, Band etc as per the request by Sri Mahaperiyavaa.
