Arunachala Pilgrimage - (3)
« on: September 17, 2008, 07:16:16 PM »
I had food in the Ashram, for about 4 to 5 sessions.

On one of the sessions, we were served Morkozhambu and
Unripe Plantain curry.  Payasam, (the sweet porridge), papads
and rasam, (light chilly gravy) were always there.  This Mor Kozhambu,
(see my receipe), was beyond description, a preparation that
the angels would stand in queue to take.   On another day,
there was Onion Sambhar (rich gravy) and greens curry.   My wife
said that these excellent Mor Kuzhambu, Sambhar, and rasam,
have not even been prepared so far by her in our family life.

I could see a number of Westerners sitting in deep meditation in the Old

They were also eating the food, without spoons and chopsticks,
with great relish.  They were taking tea on stainless steel tumblers,
like any Indian.

About persons whom I did not meet.  Smt Kanakammal, who
was Muruganar's disciple and  who wrote detailed Tamil commentary
on Bhagavan's works, is not well and she could not come to the
Ashram.  Robert Butler, I am told, was not in town.  Robert
Adams has merged with Bhagavan.  Michael James, I could
not check up.  Prof K. Swaminathan, a great Gandhian and
Bhagavan's devotee, who has translated Sri Ramana Sannidhi
Murai and Guru Vachaka Kovai in English, has merged with
I also went to Sri Arunachala Ramana Ashram of Sri Sadhu Om.
I prayed in his samadhi.  I also visited Sri Seshadri Swami's

Arunachala Siva.
