Bhagavan and Mother Azhagamma
« on: July 23, 2009, 02:15:04 PM »
On 26th May 1946,  G.V. Subbaramaiah said to other devotees:

"I was once present when Bhagavan Ramana's aunt came here  --
the one who fed Him, when He left for Tiruvannamalai.   Bhagavan
was especially gracious to her.  I could not help wondering why
Bhagavan Ramana was so gracious towards His aunt, when He
is said to have been harsh towards His Mother.  Is it because
Bhagavan wanted to help rid her of the natural feeling that Bhagavan
was her son?"

Bhagavan Ramana kept quiet, and I ( Devaraja Mudaliar) too said
that He must have behaved so deliberately in order to train her
to see in Him a Jnani and not her son.  He still did not answer but
we gathered from His attitude that our surmise was correct.  And
then after some time, Bhagavan Ramana said:  "I used to say
something harsh to her and she would cry, and then I would
say, "Go on, cry!  The more you cry the better pleased I am."
