Narikutti Swami - 4
« on: May 06, 2009, 01:22:20 PM »
Narikutti set up residence and remained in this place for many years.
He became well known to the surronding villagers, who could seek
his advice and help on their problems.  Goatherds and grass gatherers
all felt that they could approach him.  He also earned the respect of
the other sadhus and devotees who lived on the Hill.  He made improvements by cleaning out the small but deep tank which was
situated just below his hut.  With some help, he constructed a path
which connected to an existing one leading down to the Temple.

Before Sri Ramanasramam took over the care of Virupaksha Cave,
where Bhagavan Ramana had stayed for seventeen years, he designed
and supervised the construction of a new roof and entry for the place.
He also took responsibility for Mulaipal Tirtham, the sacred oasis frequented by all the sadhus on the Hill.  He organized the funds, supervised the cleaning and in parts, reconstructed with new stones
this major source of water for many of the sadhus on the Hill.
