Three days have passed for his turn to come for darshana. On the fourth night, Shri. Chidambar Mahaswamiji came in his dream and told to leave such bhaktidevotion), a simple devotion (bhakti) is required and gave him the coconut water with sugar and told the ‘Tarak Mantra’ in the right ear of Rajaram. Also told that the almighty in search of Rajaram is Shri. Chidambar Mahaswamiji only.
At that time due to lighting stroke, Rajaram closed his eyes. Then Shri. Chidambar Mahaswamiji took a simple form of a Brahmin and asked him to come for darshana in the morning. Rajaram awakened from the sleep and remembered the dream and felt that even though he had not taken meals, he felt he has eaten. Also he experienced a serene peace and calmness. Soon he went to the place where Shri. Chidambara Mahaswamiji was. Shri. Chidambara Mahaswamiji was in a sabha with disciples. Shri. Chidambara Mahaswamiji stood up and told that a beloved disciple is coming to him. Let us see and welcome him, and walked towords the gate. At the same time Rajaram was near to them and prostrated. Shri. Chidambar Mahaswamiji hugged him. All the disciples who were witnessing the event, were surprised.
Shri Chidambara Mahaswamiji enquired Rajaram "as what he wanted ". Rajaram told he would ask it in a place where nobody is present. Shri. Chidambara Mahaswamiji took him in a room and asked him to be free from all doubts. He further said, “I know that you are the great disciple,” Rajaram said, “Mahaswamiji, I want nothing. I want devotion only and a permanent place in your feet ” And Shri. Chidambara Mahaswamiji showed him the vishwatmak roop of Lord Shrikrishna, so that all of his confusions should be removed. With the darshana of Shrikrishna, Rajaram forgot his Self-being. He heard that there is no difference between Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu. The nine dnyanangas i.e. vairagya in kama, indriya nigraha, tolerance of confusion (dwandwas), faith in the words of Guru, ahankara tyaga, dhruda abhyas, satsamagama, wining of prana,, vasanakshaya. After this the words of Guru only help you to attain salvation i.e. dnyana with moksha.
