Swayambhu Lingam
« on: March 27, 2009, 12:20:56 PM »
The small tumour which showed itself on the left upper
arm of Bhagavan began to grow day by day and it
became as big as a marble.

a retired surgeon, Dr. Srinivasa Rao, pointed it out
to Bhagavan and offered to remove it by a small surgical
operation. Bhagavan however did not agree to it. As it
continued to grow rapidly, the doctors got perturbed and
somehow prevailed upon Bhagavan to agree to its removal.
Accordingly the first operation was performed.

All the devotees wanted the bandage to be covered so as
not to be visible to outsiders. But then, was there an upper
cloth to cover it? Was there a shirt to wear? The only thing
Bhagavan had was a white cloth, half-a-yard wide and threefourths
of a yard long. He tied it around his neck so as to
conceal the bandage. Still the bandage was visible through
the gaps. When some people who had the courage to ask him
what the matter was, Bhagavan used to reply with a laugh,
that he had worn a bracelet on the arm or that a Lingam had
been born there, or that it was a Swayambhu Lingam

Bhagavan Ramana has also said when blood was oozing out from
the tumour:  This is Suryakantamani.  Upon sunrays, it emits red
rays!  No one can be like Him.  Dr. Gururaja Mudaliar who did subsequent operations said:  "The pain will be excruciating in such
tumours on operation.  It will be as if a lorry is running over your hand!  But He is simply smiling...."  Only a Brahma Jnani like Bhagavan Ramana can be like that.  He is without parallel.  When
attendants were asking during His last days:  "Bhagavan!  Is it paining?" Bhagavan Ramana replied:  "The body is paining!"  He is the most exceptional Self Realized person I have ever met or read about, said Suzanne, a Western devotee!

Incidentally, a Swayambu Lingam is one which occurs on its own,
without the hammer of a sculptor.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Subramanian,

Truly, none like Sri Ramana! Ramanar is unique, not only in our times but unique throughout the evolution of the universe. No one like him!

I have also heard that Ramanar did not even take the anesthesia during operation? is this true?

For the third and the final surgeries, He was administered local
anaesthesia, even though He did not prefer.
