And asked Shri Chidambara Mahaswamiji how it can be made possible. Shri Chidambara Mahaswamiji told that it is all with the help of people like you, nothing is mine. The people of Navagund also helped to serve you and your huge military so please take this mantrakshata and sriphala so as to continue you as per your next day plan .
