The Holy vollage, Devara Hipparagi
maheshan shulin jatajut dharin |
tvameko jagadvyapako vishwarupa
prasid prasid pravho purna rupa ||

One day the pooja of Shri Chidambar Mahaswamiji was jast finished and Shri Divakar Dixit arrived to Shri Chidambar Mahaswamiji to seek permission to start meals or prasada as usual. But Shri Chidambar Mahaswamiji kept quiet after five-ten minutes once again Shri Divakar Dixit asked for permission and again Shri Chidambar Mahaswamiji kept quiet. Shri Divakar Dixit could not under stood and returned back, as the people were hungry and the lunch time was over Shri Divakar Dixit started to arrange, serve for the prasada and soon after putng all the items in plates a big cyclone has started.
