Life gradually became more difficult as Ponnan suffered from severe neck pain that over time left his neck immobile. The sorcerer’s inability to cure himself embarrassed him greatly. Desperate for healing, Ponnan sought after other magicians and doctors. Ponnan exhausted all his resources. Nothing cured his suffering, and he experienced near-death instances twice during his pursuit of healing.
People were gathered in Ponnan’s home—the home that was formerly known as the dwelling of a respected and sought-after sorcerer. Instead of seeking a man who would perform magic to heal their ailments, they now gathered inside Ponnan’s opened doors to worship the Healer of souls.

Ponnan came from a long line of sorcerers. Respected by his fellow villagers not only because of his profession, Ponnan was also known for his genuine kindness to all. But life was far from perfect.
