Swami Suresananda - 5
« on: May 08, 2009, 02:33:24 PM »
  During the last years of Swami's life, he suffered a paralytic stroke.
He was confined to the Palakkad ashram premises.  He could, by the grace of Bhagavan, regain his speech and was able to walk with a stick slowly.  During these days Swami's thoughts were all centred on Bhagavan and His teachings. 

On the last day of his life, Swami was still talking about the glory of
Bhagavan to some local college students.  He felt some uneasiness
and knew that the end was nearing.  This day happened to be the Maha Deepam Day.  He reclined on a cot in a slanting posture, gazing
at the photos of Sankara and Bhagavan Ramana hanging on the wall.
Exactly when the Maha Deepam was lit on the top of Arunachala, and when the mantra of Arunachala Siva, Arunachala Siva was being chanted in chorus at the Palakkad ashram at the conclusion of the evening satsangh, Swamiji breathed his last and merged with the Holy beacon of Arunachala.  It was on 20th November 1983 and he was
at the age of 87.

The light still glows in all its effulgence in his ashram in Palakkad guiding devotees at the ashram he founded thorugh the grace of
Bhagavan Ramana.
