Bhagavan and constructing Samadhi
« on: September 24, 2008, 03:42:43 PM »
Bhagavan Ramana, personally advised and/or supervised construction
of Samadhi for certain self realized souls.  There are four such
instances.  First, in the case of Seshadri Swami.  He told Swami's
devotees about how to dig a pit and construct a Samadhi for Swami.
He referred to Tirumoolar's Tiru Mandiram for the methods.  Tiru
Moolar is a great Tamil Yogi, who has written a book on yoga sastra
called Tiru Mandiram, comprising of 3000 songs.  He is a Siva Yogi.
Tirumandiram forms the 10th book of Saiva Canons.  Bhagavan also
stayed for hours during the Samadhi ceremony of Seshadri Swami.

The second was in the case of Mother Azagamamma.  The third was
in the case of Mastan, a Muslim.  He is an illiterate who came with
Akhilandamma to see Bhagavan, from Desur, a village about 60 kms
from Tiruvannamalai.  Mastan fell into a trance on seeing Bhagavan.
His Samadhi is in Desur.   The fourth case was that of Cow Lakshmi.

There were also occasions where Bhagavan suggested to dig a pit
and construct a Samadhi.  Two such cases are those of Echammal
and Mudaliar Patti.

Arunachala Siva.
