How great is Jivan Mukta's mother?
« on: October 21, 2008, 01:21:07 PM »
Once Bhagavan Ramana, when asked by Annamalai Swami
about the greatenss of Jivan Muktas, replied:

"Every person who comes under the 'look' of a Jivan Mukta,
gets relieved from all the sins of the past and will be liberated.
Even the lineage of a Jivan Mukta becomes Pure.*  His mother
is a Kritarthai, that is who has done her work.  The whole world
becomes Pure due to a Jivan Mukta. Such greatness is attributed
to a Jivan Mukta in Suta Samhita."

* It is also said in Bhagavatam that thirty generations before and
thirty generations after the Jivan Mukta get liberated.  Hiranya
Kashyap was said to have been liberated due to Prahlada.

The mother of Jivan Mukta is beyond compare.  It is she who has
done the work in this world, and there is nothing more to be done.
Sundaramoorthy Swami's mother and father had been liberated and
form two of the 63 saints of Siva Canon.  Tilakvati, the mother-
like sister of Tirunavukkarasu became liberated because of her
brother.   

Arunachala Siva.

Adi Shankra's mother and Bhagavan's mother both are like Kousalya and Devaki.
How much tapas they might have done to give birth to these Avatara Purusha
I prostrate to their feet from here.

Dear Ramanaduli,

Surely.  Yesterday, I forgot to mention Aryambika, Sankara's
mother, when I had mentioned about Tilkavati, Sundaramoorthy
Swamigal's mother and Mother Azhagamma.  In fact, Aryambika
should come first.  Azhagamma in Tamil, and Aryambika in Sanskrit
are meaning the same!  Is it not more than a coincedence?

Kavyakanta Ganapati Muni, on Mother's Mahasamadhi, has
composed a poem titled:  Aryambika Shatkam.

Arunachala Siva.
