Story of Hathiram Baba and Tirupati Balaji Temple

He built an ashram in the Tirumala hill and started living alone. He was an ardent devotee of Venkateswara but to the temple priests and people, his worship was mystical and different. Therefore, they did not befriend him. His frequent visit to the temple and method of worship was disliked by the priestly class. They stopped him from entering the temple. But God never abandons his true devotee. So, Lord Balaji visited Sevadas at night and they played Chausar (Pachisi – a board game {dice}). One night, the Lord left his pearl necklace in the house of Sevadas. When it was discovered, Sevadas took it to the temple. However, nobody was ready to believe his story; and the temple priests and authorities accused him of theft and imprisoned him. Sevadas then prayed to Venkateswara to prove his innocence.
