and Kururamma who were cousins were two blessed souls who had visions of the Lord.
Vilwamangalam, considered as Guruvayurappan's greatest favorite, could see him wherever
and in whatever form he wished. So also to childless Kururamma, the Lord served as her
son. She lived with Him, played with Him and even scolded Him when He became naughty. The
boy in turn helped her in all household chores as a dutiful son would for her mother.
In modern times, the well-known saint and scholar, Upanyasa Chakravarti, the late
Sengalipuram Anantharama Dikshitar was cured of his leprosy by praying to Guruvayurappan.
The late Chembai Vaidyanatha Bhagavatar lost his voice suddenly at the peak of a concert
he was giving at Suchindram. Several doctors tried to cure him but to no avail. In despair
he resorted to Guruvayur and wrung out his heart to the Lord. He regained his voice and
lived many more years to regale packed audiences with his inimitable concerts.
