Title: Health issues
Post by: Graham on January 23, 2016, 02:19:35 AM
dear all,

everything in this post has been written in lowercase wherever possible, to make life a little bit easier for me at this time.

two months ago i began to lose the use of my left hand and arm [i am left handed] and to experience severe pain in my entire arm. at first the doctors thought it was related to cervical spondylosis [i am 66 years old] and ordered cervical and full-spine MRI scans. the scans revealed a healthy spine, but a mass over the left brachial plexus. this was scanned in more detail.

it appears that there is tumour surrounding and crushing the nerves of the brachial plexus, plus other nerves and blood vessels in that area, hence the pain and paralysis of my left arm.

its origin is bone cancer, but is currently limited to my top rib and the outgrowing mass. this has made life somewhat more difficult for me, especially typing and other two-hand related tasks.


i am receiving treatment to shrink the tumour away from the nerves, in order to relieve the pain and hopefully restore the use of my arm [if only for a few months, so that i can finish everything].


whilst i am still clear and capable of it, i am currently engaged in tidying up my worldly affairs in the event that nothing works.

this will include the future of all of my domains ... ownership will transfer to my daughter and an account will be set up to pay for them for the next ten years. she will find someone skilled at these things to maintain the sites, with perhaps some help from members with regard to the forum.

my love and best wishes to you all

These news are so shocking for me... I am deeply touched with this post,and very sad to hear all this...
I sincerly and truly hope there is a place and time for miracles,and wish all will be well with You!

Dear Sri Graham,


I pray to Sri Bhagavan to help you by curing the tumor and make you alright.
What more is wanted except to have a healthy life, particularly for those who are engaged
in Sri Bhagavan's work?

Dear Sir,
I pray to Sri Bhagavan and Arunachala that the malady which came suddenly, also goes away quickly ,without needing any further medical intervention, by the bountiful and limitless grace of Bhagavan and Arunachala.
May you get completely well soon.

Dear Graham,
Just now happened to see this post.You are truly a Blessed devotee to whom all of us are deeply indebted for this Forum.The Grace that has upheld you and brought you here to Holy Arunachala is very much with you at this hour of trouble and it will ever sustain you.I am sure you know this but am saying this for my consolation.
Coming to medical Reports,they have their utility and help Doctors to take up whatever course of action they deem fit.It is just that in your case you had a problem with your left hand and hence you went for this scan and it revealed the growth of tumour and what they say is of cancerous origin(Bone Cancer).Many of us who are also 60+ are functional and hence have not gone for any of these scans,and are never sure whether something or other may not turn up if so scanned!We just carry on in just being functional unaware of whatever 'assets' we carry in our bodies!This is the only difference.(Our Master TGN pointed this out and I never forget this!)

I hope that the treatment relieves you of the pain and that full functionality is restored to your arm.It is indeed a good idea to tidy up worldly affairs,so that we travel light and hold on to God with 'Both the Hands' as Sri Ramakrishna used to say.

As regards this:

dear all,

thank you so much for your support, tears flow each time i read your posts - the first time in forty years that such has happened. this illness has removed the hardness that had taken over my heart as time passed, something for which i am deeply grateful.

yes, it came upon me suddenly in just a few weeks, an unusual tumour in an unlikely place [for someone of my age], i would not have even noticed it had it not been for the extreme pain caused by the crushing of the nerves.

it is a non-metastatic high grade osteosarcoma on the left first rib. a PET scan shows that there are no others. clearly there is a purpose to this and no doubt that will become clear as time passes.

i have absolutely no fear of death and do not question god's will, i suspect however that this is entirely my doing and that i fully deserve it, i therefore accept it with an open heart in the knowledge that nothing is without purpose. i also know that god does not punish except to reward.

my thanks and best wishes to you all

May Lord Ramana Bhagavan's grace showers on you to relieve  the pain



HEALING GRACE
By M. V. Ramaswami Iyer

IN the year 1907 I went to Tiruvannamalai to have darshan of Bhagavan. I climbed up to the Virupaksha cave. In order to safeguard Bhagavan from the intruding pilgrims of the Kartikai festival, one Krishnayya kept guard at the gate of the cave. So I had to wait outside till Bhagavan came out. He soon came out and went away without even glancing at me. I followed and overtook him. He stopped and looked at me. Words poured out of my mouth, "I am suffering, beset with many diseases. Have mercy on me". He replied, "I am neither a physician nor a magician. What can I do or tell you". Anguish welled up from the depths of my heart, and I said, "I came because I heard of your greatness. Will not my good luck be as great"? He looked at me for a long moment and said, "Go home, have courage. No harm will come to you". And he waved his hand in a peculiar way. Somehow it gave me hope.

Soon I settled at Tiruvannamalai and thus began my daily visits to Bhagavan, sometimes staying for the night with him. One day Bhagavan was sitting all alone in front of Virupaksha cave. A strange emotion got hold of me and I asked him in English, "My Lord, Jesus and other great souls have come down to earth to save sinners like me. Is there hope for me"? Bhagavan seemed moved by my cry of distress. He came closer and said in a quiet voice, "Yes, there is hope, there is hope."

Bhagavan and Yogi Ramaiah

When I returned home a song welled up in my mind and I wrote it down. Since then I wrote songs by Bhagavan's grace. When I brought my first song to Bhagavan and recited it before him, he gave me some instructions in prosody and illustrated them with examples from great Telugu poets. Since them I wrote songs and poems without much thought or effort all the years until Bhagavan's samadhi. Then the spring dried up, for it was not a gift I brought with me. It was all His grace.

My physical ailments tormented me so much that on a festival day I was plunged in deep dejection. When Echammal brought some special food in the evening, all except me went to the nearby waterfall to have their meal. Everything was pleasant and joyous but my mind was full of darkness and my body full of pain. Bhagavan sent Vasudeva Sastri to call me. I said that the rich food did not agree with me and that I had to stick to my diet. As I spoke my head turned towards Bhagavan as if impelled by some superior force and I saw him beckon to me. I went near and sat down. I was served various dishes. I had no courage to eat and was sitting gloomily when Bhagavan said, "Eat". All fear gone, I started eating and had my first hearty meal in many years. That night I had a sound sleep.

In the morning I felt strong and healthy. My dyspepsia had disappeared completely and my heart overflowed with gratitude. Bhagavan's grace continued to manifest in my life and helped me overcome all family problems. When I was transferred to Berhampore I was afflicted with boils on my legs. The pain was terrible and all medication failed. I had a fixed idea that only Arunachala could help me. One day I was surprised to find two Brahmins from Tiruvannamalai standing at my door. When I asked who knocked they replied, `Arunachala'. They were on their way to the North and had been asked by Bhagavan to break journey at Berhampore and meet me. When they saw my pitiable condition they made a paste of tamarind mixed with some fragrant gum and smeared my legs with it. The next day there was no trace of boils. It was then that I composed the song Saranagati in praise of the Holy Feet of Bhagavan, my only refuge. This famous song has often been sung by devotees for invoking the grace of Bhagavan.

Dear Sri Graham,

When i read your post today morning i was taken aback and was short of any words that i could respond with. Incidently i have been doing Valmiki Ramayana Parayanam over the last 8 days concluding today on the 9th day. I thought i would respond after the conclusion of my parayanam.

As i was doing my parayanam it occured that how many people who come in our lives go unnoticed but would have made a mark in our hearts which we only know in some special moment. It occured to me then that you too have occupied a space in my heart, even though we have not met or seen each other.

I am reminded of my cousin who also had to go through treatment for a tumor in his brain, and by God's grace he has recovered and is fine. We pray and wish for the same for you as well.

Yesterday in my parayanam, Hanuman flies and brings back a mountain inorder to fetch a medicinal herb for Lakshmana when he was injured. In the same manner we pray the almight heals you quickly. Today being the concluding day of parayanam, i remembered you all through my parayanam and we all pray to that almighty to be with you and your family in this time of your physical hardship.

Bhagawan's grace is already with you and your family.

As members have already shared, i too have been immensely benefited by my interactions with everyone here.

Dear Graham Boyd,


It occurred to me last night (not in dream).  Apart from your medication, you can follow the following:

1.  You can take the Vibhuti from Asramam, the Vibhuti applied to Sri Ramaneswara Maha Lingam
and then take it with water.

2.  You can apply the Vibhuti along with sandal paste on the skin above the rib which has been
affected by the cancer.

3. You can persuade Asramam authorities to give you one of the water pots used by Bhagavan and after
cleaning it, you can fill water and take it in tumbler along with the Vibhuti.

4. If Asramam authorities permit, you can sleep in front of Sri Ramaneswara Mahalingam at night
and after prayer and going around the Lingam say, eleven times every night, you can sleep there,
praying to Sri Ramaneswara Mahalingam saying Arunachala Siva, as many times as possible before
sleep overtakes you.   

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Graham,

Wishing you a speedy recovery. Should you need another medical opinion, please let me know. I am assuming you are in tiruvannamalai.

I am sure you have read enough of Bhagavan to know what he has said in these circumstances. So there is nothing for me to add.

Should you need any assistance in the continuation of the web site please let me know.

Best wishes.

Dear Sri Graham,

Just felt to share with you that, there are alternate therapies as well like Pranic Healing and CST (craniosacral therapy) which will be immense benefit along with your current treatments. These two i know of personally from reliable sources about their efficacies.

There are many excellent alternate therapists or alternate healing treatments. Just sounding you about them.

May all go well with you.

Dear all,

Thank you all for your support and the alternative medicinal and other treatments you have suggested and which which I prefer.

I would have followed alternative methods only instead of chemo if it had not been so urgent and difficult due to the acute pain and muscle/general wastage in my left arm.

I will most certainly follow whatever I can from now on .... today I return to hospital for my second round of chemo plus further examination of my left shoulder and arm to find out there such rapid wastage.

My deepest thanks to you all for your kind support and I will most certainly keep you posted of progress when I can.

Dear Graham

I read it only now so late.   Not sure if you will read this message given the extreme pain.

this is the problem with prarabhda .  I am like ignorant man, but yet don't forget the Triupura Rahasyam of Sri Dattatreya and Sri Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi, because both these words played key role in your sadhana.  Just remember the words again and again . 

I pray for your speedy recovery.

Dear Subramaniam sir, 1 and 2 are possible and practical.

did we see 3 and 4 as totally impossible?  Sri Rameshwara Mahalingam is a samadhi shrine laid out by the rules of Thirumular. Suddenly it cannot be opened in the night for sleeping. 

Further if one precedence is shown in giving Bhagavan's water pot or sleeping in shrine, many people will come and ask.

do we have so many articles to lend to people?

Graham sir will not mistake me.  His high accomplishment in sadhana will definitely understand my point.

Let us not tell impractical things.

Even in Bhagavan's time, Maharishi told not to get hold of his physical feet because disciples may drive us away any time.  that is the same thing applies now also.

Post by: eranilkumarsinha on January 31, 2016, 03:55:50 PM
Dear Sri Graham,

I know I needn't say anything when it is a matter between Guru and His Disciple of your standing. 
Sri Bhagwan has taught that suffering is the way.  It follows that suffering comes to His devotees as a test of their forbearance, fortitude and, most important, their Faith. When someone complained to Him of an ailment, He used to often say that the body itself is a disease, and therefore, a disease  has contracted another disease.  I know also that this is easy to say, but indeed difficult to follow.  But Sri Bhagwan says that suffering is the way.

Therefore, in my view, His devotees indeed needn't lose heart.  Enduring the pain with prayer on the lip, doing sadhana as ever before as far as possible,  and following the line of treatment (only as an alibi for cure, for His  Grace alone cures and certainly is enough) that His ailing devotee is intuited to pursue, is the right course, whatever the circumstances. And, of course, I am certain you know all this  far better than me.


Thanks very much.
Pranam,
  Anil

I have been reading this forum since I have known Bhagavan a few years ago and it has really helped in my spiritual evolution.I am greatly indebted to you though I have never seen you in person.Many times I found the right answers for my spiritual questions at the right time in this forum as if Bhagavan is acting through you and other great contributors of the forum.

I hope you will be alright soon and will be back with full vigor to continue the work assigned to you by Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi.

Today I started the third and final chemo treatment in an effort to reduce the size of the tumour and thereby reduce the pain and restore some mobility to my left arm.

Tomorrow I see the surgeon to discuss the possibility of removing the tumour from the nerves. If it is possible I will probably agree.

Dear Graham:

Unbelievable. My prayers are with you. 

Are you able to listen to the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra with a headset daily for as long as you can.

This mantra is believed to cure every kind of disease, including attachments.  Like you said, the hardness in you has dissolved.

When I googled it, I found this:

I will offer my prayers to you to make the next stage of your journey easy - whether it is to be fully cured of this disease or to drop this body and merge with Arunachala.

Thank you so much for this forum and everything else you have done for devotees.

Title: Re: Health issues
Post by: Graham on March 23, 2016, 11:35:40 AM
dear all,

I had the 3rd chemo treatment at the end of February and it has taken this long for me to recover from it somewhat. I was warned that it would be very bad and they were right.

the surgeon now says that removing the tumour will require a number of important nerves supplying my left side to be removed where they are surrounded by the tumour, also arteries and any major veins. the veins can be replaced and rejoined, but the nerve loss is unlikely to recover.

the only reason I agreed to chemo in the first place was in the hope that it would shrink the tumour, freeing up the nerves and thereby saving my left arm.

i am now pursuing alternative treatments, B17 and hemp oil (cannabis oil), both of which are said to kill cancer, especially the hemp oil (not hemp seed oil, which does not work)

the B17 is currently held up in customs at Bangalore and the hemp oil is proving to be very hard to get due to it being illegal in many states in India, which is not good, especially for a natural medicine that is widely known to cure all cancers, plus many other diseases within 1 month.

the reason for the ban is that cannabis oil contains TCH, the hallucinogenic component in cannabis [ganga, hemp] as well as CBD's which are the powerful medicinal compounds.

it was legal in India, even part of the culture, until 1985, after which it was banned due to international pressure, no doubt prompted and supported by pharmaceutical companies who want worldwide bans on natural remedies that actually work without harming the patient.

there are TCH-free versions of the cannabis oil, available legally in the USA, but shipping them is illegal. this is crazy to say the least.

i wonder how many tens of thousands, even millions of people are going die very painful deaths because of this foolish ban, which is based purely upon the insatiable greed of a few.

perhaps it is time for the Indian government to stand up for India's traditional medicines and overturn this ban.

in the meantime i will probably have to fly to the USA to get the treatment there.

Sri Bhagwan: The creature is powerless and the Creator is All-powerful. How to approach Him? To entrust oneself to His care is the only thing left for him; total surrender is the only way.

Dear Sri Graham,

To know that you are suffering from such painful disease is very disconcerting to all of us, to say the least. We all have kept praying here for your speedy recovery from this dreaded disease, and as Sri Bhagwan's Grace is always with you, I have no doubt that heart-felt prayers of so many of His devotees and His Grace will work miracle, and you will come out of this fatal disease unscathed to further inspire and guide Hid devotees. Therefore, all I wish to convey is that you should undergo whatever system of medicines His Grace takes you to, but  nevertheless you must surrender inwardly and entrust yourself to His Care. I am certain, like so many others, that all will be well sooner than later.

Pranam,
  Anil


Note: Dear Sri Graham, I wish to say that if wheat-plant has not yet been harvested in Tamil Nadu, and if those standing plants in the fields have wheat-grains which still contain milk, that milk is very beneficial for the cure form this disease which you have contracted. I feel that if you would have taken one glass of this milk daily, at least for some time, it will sure work wonders. I have been knowing about this unfailing panacea for a very long time now, but when I had been typing as above, this came to me unthought, and so it occurred to me that I should let you know about it.

dear all,

I had the 3rd chemo treatment at the end of February and it has taken this long for me to recover from it somewhat. I was warned that it would be very bad and they were right.

the surgeon now says that removing the tumour will require a number of important nerves supplying my left side to be removed where they are surrounded by the tumour, also arteries and any major veins. the veins can be replaced and rejoined, but the nerve loss is unlikely to recover.

the only reason I agreed to chemo in the first place was in the hope that it would shrink the tumour, freeing up the nerves and thereby saving my left arm.

i am now pursuing alternative treatments, B17 and hemp oil (cannabis oil), both of which are said to kill cancer, especially the hemp oil (not hemp seed oil, which does not work)

the B17 is currently held up in customs at Bangalore and the hemp oil is proving to be very hard to get due to it being illegal in many states in India, which is not good, especially for a natural medicine that is widely known to cure all cancers, plus many other diseases within 1 month.

the reason for the ban is that cannabis oil contains TCH, the hallucinogenic component in cannabis [ganga, hemp] as well as CBD's which are the powerful medicinal compounds.

it was legal in India, even part of the culture, until 1985, after which it was banned due to international pressure, no doubt prompted and supported by pharmaceutical companies who want worldwide bans on natural remedies that actually work without harming the patient.

there are TCH-free versions of the cannabis oil, available legally in the USA, but shipping them is illegal. this is crazy to say the least.

i wonder how many tens of thousands, even millions of people are going die very painful deaths because of this foolish ban, which is based purely upon the insatiable greed of a few.

perhaps it is time for the Indian government to stand up for India's traditional medicines and overturn this ban.

in the meantime i will probably have to fly to the USA to get the treatment there.

Dear Graham,

very sad to hear the latest update on your health. Your decision to fly to USA is good on this material health aspect.

no other words to say. when we get pain to this body, how much pain it is?  oh Arunachala....protect your devotees....in the nerves and veins let Love and Peace flow instead of pain......

May that Divine Physician, First among gods, exalt (me) in His all-redeeming Transcendent Being, having cut off all evil, whether in the form of poisonous creatures and wild beasts, or the demoniacal natures in creation.

We pray and wish all goes well for you!

this will include the future of all of my domains ... ownership will transfer to my daughter and an account will be set up to pay for them for the next ten years. she will find someone skilled at these things to maintain the sites, with perhaps some help from members with regard to the forum.

Sir,
Do any members have administrator permission at this forum?
There should always be a few, in case the site is spammed, or subject to trolling etc.
