Sri Medhanidhi Theertha was a well-known Ayurvedic expert too.

Once Sri Medhanidhi Tirtharu had the darshana of Sripadarajaru in the cave inside Vrundavana –   Once when he was doing the Abhisheka to Sripadaraja Vrundavana, he felt uncomfortable because of a defect in one of the steps for climbing.   He asked some of his shishyaas to remove one step and make it convenient to climb.  When the step was removed, a flash of light was there and when he saw inside he was surprised to see Sripadarajaru doing meditation in a cave, there he saw a nandadeepa also next to Sripadaraja Swamigalu.   Then he asked his shishyas to close the step, as it was before only.  It is because of his tapa shakthi only that he could see Sripadarajaru.
