Chiranjeevis in the world
« on: June 13, 2009, 01:46:21 PM »
Suri Nagamma writes in her letter of 20th February 1946:

Sometime back a person asked a question, "It is said that
Aswathamma, Vibheeshana, Hanuman and others are
chiranjeevis, eternally living beings and they are even now
living somewhere. Is that true?"  Bhagavan Ramana said:
"Yes, that is true."

Bhagavan Ramana continued:

What is your idea of a Chiranjeevi?  Those that know the
state which is never destroyed, where is death for them,
and where is birth?  They live as chiranjeevis for all the
time and at all places.  We are now talking about them,
and so they are present here.  When it is said that a person
lives for ever, it does not mean this body consisting of the
five elements.   When Brahma Kalpas [ages of Brahma]
themselves come and go like dolls' houses, is it possible
to attribute permanence to bodies that age? said Bhagavan.
