Poorna saranagathi
« on: October 19, 2008, 11:10:36 AM »
Once Bhagawan sat  on the Siva side of Arunachala mountain and is in a state of self absorption with his eyes open.Some miscreants came over there
to steal tamarind fruits from the tree which belongs to another person.They collected huge amounts of tamarind in a hurry and before going out one
of them observed Bhagawan with his eyes open and he felt that Bhagawan is the only person to witness the theft and it is better to remove his eyes
so that no body will trace their theft and he ordered one of his accomplice to destroy the eyes of Bhagawan.Bhagawan is aware of all these things  but
he did not react to the situation.The person who is expected to destroy Bhagawan's eyes came very near to Bhagawan and observed his eyes and he
felt that Bhagawan is already blind because his eyes looked vacant like that of a blind man with no response to anything that is seeable and he reported the same
to his friend.Then they ran away without harming Bhagawan.Bhagawan stood by his teaching that whatever is going to happen will happen to the body
according to prarabdha and whatever is destained not to happen will not happen under any circumstances.Such strong conviction is possible only for those
with Poorna saranagathi.

Dear Dr. Raju, Yes.  I think, (whether it is in the same story or
some other story), someone came to drop cactus milk into His
eyes, to make Him blind.  He did not move.  Then they left without
doing that evil thing.

Arunachala Siva.
