What is Anandam?
« on: October 22, 2008, 11:58:01 AM »
On 28.9.1938, Annamalai Swami and Madhavaswami were near
the bathroom when Bhagavan Ramana was taking his bath.
Madhavaswami asked Bhagavan Ramana, after His return from
bath, "How about Ganga taking?"

Bhagavan Ramana said: "Oh, it is a very bad practice.  Aha,
how can I describe the anandam of those who have taken
ganja?"  After saying this, Bhagavan held Annamalai Swami
with both His hands and embraced him tightly and said:

"They say, it is Anandam, Anandam..."

Laughingly, He left him and went away.  Annamalai Swami felt
the shock for a long time, and from that time, his body, mind and work had a wonderful transformation!
