Cow Lakshmi Samadhi - First Anniversary
« on: October 26, 2008, 02:06:56 PM »
On July 18, 1949,  Cow Lakshmi's first death anniversary was
celebrated.  Bhagavan Ramana had already undergone two
sugeries, and radium needles had been implanted and bandaged.
Bleeding had reduced.  At that time, I was away in Vijayawada,
for some domestic work.  I was writing third and fourth volume of
the Letters, and the second volume had been ready for printing and
someone had offered to bear the printing cost.

While I was in Vijayawada, my sister in law was staying in my
room in Tiruvannamalai and she was going to the Asram daily.
Bhagavan, I believe was asking: "When shall Nagamma come?"
and was telling: "She will come for Anniversary of Cow's samadhi."

My sister in law wrote me about this and I started to Tiruvannamalai
by catching the direct train from Vijayawada to Tiruvannmalai.
I could reach Tiruvannamalai only around 7.30 PM on the night
of first anniversary celebrations of Cow Lakshmi.  My sister in law
was telling me immediately on my arrival:

"I went and read Cow Lakshmi story of yours, in the Asram.  Bhagavan was telling, "Cow Lakshmi left her body, on the hands of Nagamma!"
I became very happy and immediately rushed to the Asram and
met Bhagavan.  He said: "O! You have come.  I was telling that
you would come today!"  She rushed to Cow Lakshmi's Samadhi
and prayed to her with flowers and fruits. 

Visvanatha Swami came to me and said:  Bhagavan was telling
that you would come today.  You are like a daughter for Him."

I was feeling very happy and said to him:

Bhagavan's  words never fail.  Only His 'thoughts' have dragged
me here from Vijayawada!

What a lucky devotee is Suri Nagamma garu.

My Mother-in-law it seems knows Suri Nagamma as she used to stay adjacent to her house.

I will let you all know if i know more details.

I think Suri Nagamma's husband died at an earlier stage and her brothers used to take care her financial needs.

Thanks a lot Subramanian.R garu for sharing these incidents.
