Thyagaraja's wife passed away.
Once the King of Tanjore invited him to his palace and sing his praise.
Thyagaraja being a god-man declined it saying he would sing nobody's praise except God's.
The king was enraged and wanted to force him by his fiat.
As a result of this evil thought, the king developed intense pain in his stomach which no
medicine could cure.
Realising his mistake, the king came to the saint and begged his forgiveness.
Thyagaraja prayed to Sri Rama and the king was cured.
On one occasion Thyagaraja had been to Tirupati to Worship Sri Venkateswara. At the time
he went, the curtain had been drawn before the Lord's image.
