Usually, in such occasions, he returns back to his Physical Body within few hours. But on that occasion, he did not return back even on the next day. The Orthodox people residing in and around that area concluded that, Master has deceased and insisted Master’s family members, for cremation of the body before sunset as per their customs. Having unable to convince them, the Mediums as well as family members, reluctantly had to make arrangements on that evening for cremation, on the banks of River Kavery. As soon as the pyre was lit, a thunder storm started down poring and cremation could not take place. On the next morning, once again when they tried to light the pyre, unprecedented floods came down the river and the flushing waters carried away Master’s body to unknown destinations.
