Saint Poet Ramalingaswami - 2
« on: February 08, 2009, 10:13:30 AM »
Today is Pushya star of Makara month.  Yesterday was Punarvasu,
Bhagavan's birth star.  He was born in Dhanur month.

On this Makara Pushyam day, Saint Ramalingaswami merged in
Space, without even leaving his body behind.  Ramalingaswami
came from Tiruvottiyur to Tiruttani and then proceeded to Chidambaram.  Here, he was worshipping Nataraja for many years.
Then he left for a place called Vadalur, a village about 40 kms from
Chidamabram.  Here, he graduated into worship of Effulgence as
Siva.  Afer sometime, he moved further to a village nearby called
Karunguzhi, where he establshed Satya Jnana Sabha and asked people to worship Siva as Light.  An earthern lamp was constantly burning in his ashram.  He propagated total vegetarianism, non-
injury to all living beings and Jnana through the Truth, which is Siva, in the form of Light.  At the appropriate time, he moved to a small
hut nearby called Sakti Vilasam, where he shut himself in for 48 days and merged with Space, without leaving the body.  His famous dictum is: The Effulgence of Grace, rare and great and That is Mercy of Siva.  He has composed thousands of verses, classified into six canons and this book is called Tiru Arut Pa, The Holy Songs of Grace.

Arunachala Siva.
