It brings me tears when I see this photo and some details about Sri Pradosham Mama’s practices. It is humanly not possible to do what mama did all his life. This is not something that happened once or twice. The book tells that mama does this every time he sees Periyava. He would do it even if there is a puddle, hard roads etc. The best part is, He would wait till he completes them!
Some excerpts from the book:: Mama calls himself as “Meela Adimai” – adimai means slave; meela adimai is one who is at a point where he can’t detach himself from the master – hope my translation reads ok! Wherever you see “adimai”, it is referred to mama.
