Once, a big Portrait of Sri Seshadri Swamigal (hereinafter sri swamigal) was placed before Mahaperiyava of Kanchi by writer Sri Bharanidharan. In the said photo, Sri swamigal posed with legs folded in a style ( as seen in the photo at First Page) and his left hand holding his chin. On seeing the photo, Mahaperiyava also folded his legs like Seshadri Swamigal, kept his left hand holding his chin and told Sri Bharanidharan, a writer in Anandha Vikatan as follows:
"You know that Sri Seshadri Swamigal was a great saint. By his thapas he had converged himself with goddesses Kamakshi. Can I attain that level?". In Tamil language "Andha Nilai EnakkuVaruma?".
Sri Swamigal lived only in two places namely Vazhur and Kancheepuram before finally settling down at Thiruvannamalai.
Thererafter swamigal did not come out of Thiruvannamalai till his demise. There is an Ashram near Agni Theertham in Thiruvannamalai where Swmigal's mortal remains is placed. The house in which Swamigal lived in Kancheepuram was identified at the instance of Mahaperiyava by Sri Bharanidharan and is maintained today which is located near South Mada Street of Varadharajar Temple at Chinna Kancheepuram. Though Swamigal lived at Vazhur, being his maternal ancestral village..
