Poem on Buttermilk
« on: March 12, 2009, 10:25:05 AM »
Still another day, Bhagavan Ramana recollected a sloka which
praised buttermilk highly like this:

"Buttermilk mixed with cardamom, ginger, lemon juice and a
little salt, is of rare relish even to Indra (the Lord of the gods).

Bhagavan Himself liked the buttermilk prepared in the above way.
One noon at lunch, GVS observed that Bhagavan was not getting
proper nourishment, by taking too thin buttermillk.  On asking,
Bhagavan Ramana promptly replied laughing:

"Oh! You want me to take curds!  Then I need not use a writing table!"

He explained saying, "I am already feeling this stomach heavy enough.  If I carry out your suggestion, it would soon grow into
the bulk of a writing desk!"

He rendered the above poem also in Telugu verse. This was preserved by G.V. Subbaramaiah.

Dear Subramanian and Srk Udai,
                                          I want write a poem on Ghee but i do not have that talent.Usually

people feel that Ghee causes heart disease by rising cholesterol in blood.But if we can eat rice with

ghee prefarably of cow occassionally it protects our digestive system and body and keeps it healthy.

There is no restriction on the amount of ghee to be taken.
