Starting bright and early at 5.55 a.m.from our halting place, the Southern Travancore Hindu College, 200 walkers walked for over 2.5 hours to reach Nambimalai Mouna Guru Samadhi, Chunkankadai. Sir had his breakfast here. We stopped here for about 30 minutes. 10 a.m. saw us at Pattani Dargah Samadhi. This is the resting place for Pathan soldiers who fought for the Travancore Kings. You may recall that Sir's ancestors, from generations ago, were from this lineage. Interestingly, a church was also alongside the Dargah.

The road from Kanyakumari to South Kerala has a landscape of lush green trees, paddy fields and ponds filled with beautiful water lilies. The mountain strip was always visible on one side. We crossed many a plantain field and coconut grove. We also walked through a few areas in towns. We reached Parthasarathy Temple, Thuckalay about half an hour ahead of schedule by 10.30 a.m. A hall in the temple is the resting place for the night. After lunch and rest, we gathered at 6.30 p.m. to participate in the Arathi at the temple to the main deity, Krishna or Parthasarathy. We had a beautiful Satsang in the premises of the temple, with Sir, speaking about the 12th Chapter of The Bhagawad Gita - Bhakti Yoga, in Tamil. He narrated the qualities of a true devotee or Bhakta as one who has the welfare of all living beings at heart. The current yatra should bring about a change in the person walking - an internal change. It is fine even if a person does not participate in the padayatra, but if there is a change of heart or a change that comes about, this is the real 'yatra'. This is the main accomplishment. The Satsang was well-attended with the local populace also joining in. He also taught a small meditation technique. We had dinner at 8 p.m. and Sir walked back to his place of stay which is about two and a half km from the temple.
