Pudukkottai Adhishtanam at Pudukkottai was established as the samadhi of Judge Swamigal.
Story of Judge Swamigal and formation of Adhistanam:
Sri Sadashiva Brahmendra Sarasvathyavadhuta Swamigal, also popularly referred to as Judge Swamigal was a great jnani hailing from the proud lineage of the avadhuta saints who can be traced back to Lord Dattatreya.
Judge Swamiji renounced worldly life and sought a Guru who would help free him from the fetters of mundane existence. He found in Sri Ramakrishna Swamiji of Kalahasti, such a worthy preceptor who initiated him into the spiritual life.
The recipients of Sri Judge Swamigal’s benevolence and grace are many. His disciples were many, prominent among them being Sri Swayampakasa Swamigal. It is noteworthy to mention here that Sri Judge Swamigal’s adhishtanam has been built by Sathguru Sri Shanthananda Swamigal (whose Paramaguru is Sri Judge Swamigal) at Pudukkottai which stands to this day as a perennial source of Divine Grace.
