State of innocence
« on: October 18, 2008, 09:32:34 PM »
When Paul Brunton came to Bhagawan for the first time at the suggestion of Paramacharya he had an experience in the Bhagawan's presence which he
described in deatail,somebody told Bhagawan that Brunton had an experience because of you.Bhagawan immediately told them "I dont know".In his
presence many things happened and he never claimed they are because of him.This is the real state of innocence in which there is no relic of doership.

Dear Dr. Raju,

Yes.  Bhagavan was in a state of total innocence, not claiming
anything miracles to be His, when they happpened in His Presence.
Brunton was given a glimpse of Bhagavan several times.  But I
would say that he did not pursue it further.  He has to be thanked
for making the western seekers to know about Bhagavan Ramana,
through his great book, A Search in Secret India.  But later, he
was even not permitted inside the Asram, because, he was claiming
several of his own ideas as Bhagavan's through his other books
or articles and this irritated the Asram.  Of course, Bhagavan had
no opinion, as usual, on this issue.

Arunachala Siva.
