Narikutti Swami - 6
« on: May 06, 2009, 02:30:56 PM »
At this time, he decided to make a journey to Australia as friends
had suggested that a few months' rest in Australia could be very
beneficial to his extremely poor health.  He accepted this advice,
with the certainty that he would always return to India.  Many years
earlier, he had been told by a Sri Lankan astrologer that he would make one journey to his homeland before he died.  He believed
implicitly what was foretold in that horoscope.  After an absence
of over 40 years, he returned to the land of his birth and stayed
with various friends and, in particular stayed at the Hill of Fire
Sanctuary in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales.

After some months, he returned to India but, the next few months
were difficult for Narikutti as his health was failing rapidly and he
was becoming quiet weak.  He suffered from serious bile attacks
and one morning his cleaning servant arrived to find him sitting in the entrace to his house, breathing with difficulty, and very low indeed. He asked her to go and bring the doctor.  But before the doctor
would come, while he was alone, and sitting up straight, he ceased
to breathe.  He left his body as he lived, alone in the knowledge of
his own strength to fearlessly face whatever life had to offer.

He had asked for his body to be cremated so this was arranged and
carried out on the same day he was found:  15th September 1994.

Narikutti Swami who came to Arunachala, full of the fire of tapas
was absorbed into Arunachala.  He touched many by the example
of his firm discipline and the whole hearted, simple life of dedication and surrender to his guru.
