G.V.Subbaramayya:  Did Subramanya Bharati ever come to Bhagavan?

Bhagavan:  I think he did once.  It was when we were on the hill.  One evening when only Sivayya the late Mouni Swami of Kutralam), who is dead now, was with me, someone came and sat for nearly an hour before me and then went away without saying a word.  Later , when I saw pictures of Bharati I thought it must have been he.

Day by Day with Bhagavan
29-4-1946
Mr.Nanavathi asked Bhagavan the following:
Nanavati: I suppose mere mauna in speech is no good; but we must have mauna of the mind.
Bhagavan: Of course .  If we have real mauna, that state in which the mind is merged into its source and has no more separate existence, then all other kinds of mauna will come of their own accord i.e. the mauna of words, of action and of the mind or chitta.
Bhagavan also quoted in this connection, a verse from Thayumanavar:
'If I get pure mauna (quiescence), I shall have mauna of chitta, mind, word and deed.'
Bhagavan aded ,"Such mauna is not inertness but great activity.  It is the most powerful speech."

The Better Nature of Others

Often I sat at the feet of Bhagavan Sri Ramana and heard his talks. I learnt from Bhagavan that we should not indulge in disparaging talk but rather we should talk of the better nature of others.
Prof. S. stated to Bhagavan that one Swamiji told him that we may prolong life by proper diet and enquired of Bhagavan whether that view is true. The Swamiji died some time ago and Bhagavan replied by a counter question, "Is that Swami alive?" Another devotee in the hall narrated some incident, and said that the Swami boasted about his siddhis and powers, etc. Bhagavan cut short the trend of the talk and narrated another incident: "Once I and some others were ascending the hill to proceed to Skandashram. On the way we met that Swamiji carrying on his head a big pot of water. I enquired why he carried that pot and he replied, 'Perhaps Bhagavan may need drinking water on the hill.' " While narrating it Bhagavan was so moved that his voice choked and tears trickled down from his eyes. I learnt a lesson that we should only talk about the better nature of a person. — T. Krishnaji, The Call Divine, 1966
