The Tiferes Shlomo, RebbiShlomo of Radomsk, was dahvook (connected heart and soul) to R' Elimelech of Lizhensk, the Noam Elimelech, and he used to say that he was Reb Elimelech's "talmid muvhak", (chief disciple). This was all in spite of the fact that he was born 14 years after (1800) Rebbi Elimelech's demise.(1786). He would travel every year to Lizhensk to the graveite of the Rebbi Elimelech. When asked what was his special reason to go there every year he answered, "The one who understands, why in spite of the fact that in Eretz Yisroel there are hundrens of graves of Tzadikkim and Tannaim and Nevi'im, yet only by the Kever of the Rebbi Shimon Bar Yochai, all of the Jews gather for a festive Hillulah; will also understand this."
Being a Cohen, a member of the a priestly family, R' Shlomo was not allowed to have have contact with the dead nor visit graveyards. In order to be able to visit the gravesite of R' Elimelech, he expended great sums of his own money to build a wall around the area to make a partition that would enable him to visit.
His son, Reb Avraham Yissacher Ber related that one year, on Adar 21, R' Shlomo presided over a Tish, (a Chassidic gathering) in honor of the Yohrzeit of Rebbi Elimelech. Suddenly R' Shlomo arose from his place to his full stature and whispered to Reb Avraham Yissacher Ber that he was standing up for R' Elimelech who had come to the Tish! He added further that everyone who was present that evening recieved a kaporah (atonement, healing) for all of his sins, just like on Yom Kippur!
His work "Tiferes Shlomo" is considered a textbook of Chassidic thought.
