Lesser known facts about Mouni Sadhu
« on: April 01, 2009, 10:57:11 AM »
When I wrote about Andrew Bukaraba yesterday under Miracles,
I told that there are certain lesser known facts about Mouni Sadhu,
his teacher, M. Sodousky or M. Sodonsky.

1. M. Sodousky was a Russian, though it was wrongly believed that he
was a Polish.

2. M. Sodousky after the war, worked in Brazil for some years,
where he formed a group to discuss Maharshi's teachings.  It
was the first South American group, of Ramana Devotees.

3. He later went to Australia and there again, he formed a group
of Ramana devotees for satsangh.

4. He met Bhagavan Ramana and Bhagavan Ramana gave him
ten important slokas of Vivekachoodamani for his daily chanting.

5. He had almost a fatal motor crash (like Burkaba), after which
he was declared dead by a doctor friend.  His Brazilian devotees,
who had come to Australia to sit with Mouni Sadhu chanted Sanskrit
slokas.  In a few minutes, Mouni Sadhu woke up and told his friends:
Let us go.  Is the van drive-able?

6.  His health was slowly failing. The last few years were a great
struggle.  A Russian nurse Natasha was taking care of him.  One day, Mouni Sadhu was in toilet and there was a big sound.  The nurse rushed to open the door.  Mouni Sadhu said firmly:  No need to help!  It is time for me to go!  His sudden death was due to a cardiac arrest, which was what he had wanted to avoid further sufferings!     

7. Mouni Sadhu was not buried but cremated.  A box containing his ashes are in the Springvale cemetry.  He merged with Bhagavan Ramana in 1971.

8. He had earlier sent the first copy of his famous book In Days
of Great Peace, to Sri Ramanasramam, with his autograph.

I have read 2 books from this guy, and I have found them very interesting. I like this guy very much, and I would like to find more of his books, at least digitally, but I don't think there are many options to get or buy them. In fact he was occultist and even theosophist till he met Ramana.
