Krishnamoorthy's father sent his son Guruswamy ganabadigal to Chennai again for the marriage proposal received from their relative.He stayed there for 4 days in vain.Finally before leaving Chennai,he took a small metal pot containing water to pour over his brother's head in anger.Now Krishnamoorthy told his brother,recite Purusha Suktam & pour the holy water.(ஸு + உக்தம் = ஸுக்தம் ) Suktam means "well said"- நன்றாக சொல்லப் பட்டது.This is one of the important Veda mantra daily recited in Hindu tradition.Purusha Suktam is common in Vedas.Purusha Suktam contains Samhithai(prayers to all Devas),Brahmanam(details of yagnas ),Aaranyakam(upanishads - research of conclusive truth).This starts with praising the glory of God.Tells about the creation of lives & universe.Finally tells how a jeevan crosses ignorance (includes the guidelines with reasoning) & realizes God .Now ,Krishnamoorthy tells his brother that he can collect five hundred rupees in his bank balance & as his brother does n't honour the promise (should not compel him to marry) & leave him.He will not pay the remaining 2500 Rs. Next day he resigned his job & thought he has taken the first step in renouncing this world.Those who want to know more about suktams & veda mantras, can refer book "veda manthirangal" authored by Swamy AasuDoshannandar(Sri.Ramakrishna mutt,Chennai). As he became a determined & matured man at his age of twenty(Gnana vairagya),Holy place Kasi appeared in his mind in seeking Guru to realise his ideal. This is similar to that of the great desire of Swami Vivekananda,who questioned the well educated people,whether they have seen God.None could stop .How , a great saint like Vallalar was compelled to marry in his life . Now let us see how our Krishnamoorthy is going to face the trial . As he has not yet received Sanyasa Deetcha in his life history,I am writing his name with utmost respect in me.They are such great people whom i can't stand near,only thing is the satisfaction of sharing a few things with you.Knowing the life history of great saints itself is the first step towards realising of God.I hope you would agree with me.Krishnamoorthy reached Kasi by walking all the way from chennai.See his determination.After taking a holy dip in Ganga , worshiped Goddess Visalatchi , God Viswanatha & Annapoorani he stayed there.His only prayer to God was that he should be blessed with a Guru who could guide him to renounce this world & realize God.His prayer was soon answered.There he met Tiruvannamalai Dakshinamoorthy Swamigal.Dakshinamoorthy swamigal understood the Vairagya & maturity of the young lad & accepted him as his disciple.He learnt Veda sastra from his Guru very well & got cleared all the doubts arose during his studies.He was also observing silence & brought into his mind,what are all he learnt from his Guru.Three years passed .He also served another Mouna guru swamigal for six months & returned back to Sri.Dakshinamoorthy swamigal.Meanwhile Krishnamoorthy became very weak due to some illness & his parents & brothers came to Kasi & asked him to return with them.He told them with in 96 days he would reach Aduthurai & sent them back . One day he requested his master to initiate him into Sanyasa immediately.His Guru replied that he is very much eligible to follow sanyasa ,provided he gets the permission from his parents.Now Krihnamoorthy was shocked to hear this from his Guru & told him that his parents would not permit him.He began to blame himself for the karmas he has acquired & so much worried that he could n't renounce.His Guru advised him to write a letter to his parents seeking their permission.Hesitantly he wrote a letter seeking their permission.His guru further told him that God is very much concerned about his sincere request & that he should not worry about this.Soon his father wrote a letter to Krishnamoorthy asking him to return immediately & further they can discuss everything in person.He also wrote a letter to Dakshinamoorthy swamigal not to grant him Sanyasa to the great shock of Krishnamoorthy.Now his Guru advised him to return to Aduthurai.Krishnamoorthy knelt before his Guru & thanked him for learning the sastras from him & He is in very much debt to him.Swamigal blessed him & gave him Vibuthi telling that with permission from his parents he can obtain sanyasa from one of the saints in Tamilnadu & He was sure that God Viswanatha would be with him always & guide him.After some time Krishnamoorthy reached Aduthurai at an early morning.There he saw the whole village in a sad mood & learnt that his father has expired.The relatives & villagers asked him to join in the last ritual.But he refused saying that he has already renounced & every one blamed Krishnamoorthy for his father's death.But one learned sastri told them that because of him only his father reached Brahmalogam & advised them not to blame him.It was exactly the 96th day he reached Aduthurai.
