At Guruvanapur i.e. Gurlhosur, every body was very happy because of Shri. Chidambara Mahaswamiji’s stay. Once as usual Shri. Chidambara Mahaswamiji was busy in teaching disciples. Shri. Chidambar Mahaswamiji was telling about God who helps the good people, and he will rush always to the devotees also gives darshana. One student asked him, “How is it true?” . Can it be possible to have darshana of Lord Vishnu. Why not Mahaswami said, “Not only you but every body can have darshana if you want ". All students were surprised. Mahaswami further said, “I promise you, remember Shri Narayana all the while will come over here you will see him see him on the fifteenth day exactly from now.”

The people, as well as disciples were counting the days daily. On the fifteenth day, Shri. Chidambara Mahaswamiji was sitting with disciples and other people with the regular teachings. Mean while a messenger interrupted and told that two Pathans have arrived at the door and waiting for the darshana of Shri. Chidambara Mahaswamiji. Shri. Chidambar Mahaswamiji asked him, “ one or two waiting for me? Go and see.” Accordingly the person went out and saw the only one was there. He came to Shri. Chidambara Mahaswamiji and told, “there is only one Pathan. He is very handsome, is wearing a golden turban with pearls and jewels on it. He has a light green colored long shirt and its matching pant. He has a sword in his hands.” Mahaswami got down from his chair and rushed towards the door.

The Pathan spoke in Persian language with Shri. Chidambara Mahaswamiji. Soon Shri. Chidambara Mahaswamiji and he hugged each other. Then both of them went into the temple just near by. There, they were for two hours. Shri. Chidambara Mahaswamiji offered fruits and milk with kesar to him. They both bowed against each other. Then Pathan climbed up on the horse. The horse and the person called Pathan both disappeared all of a sudden. Shri. Chidambara Mahaswamiji told the people gathered, “he was not a Pathan but he was Lord Venkatesh of Tirupati. I have told you on the day of pravachana (teachings)fifteen days back. God is there for every body. He helps and give darshana to good once always. Believe it.”

Shri Chidambar Mahaswamiji fufilled the wish of his followers to see the Lord. It is quite astonishing to note that Shri Chidambar Mahaswamiji could speak in 56 languages. This seems to be impossible for a human being. Even modern computers are also not developed for working in so many languages at a time.
