"Bhagavan! I am seeing Void, there is nothing else!"
« on: November 15, 2009, 11:09:08 AM »
Cuddalore Somasundaram Pillai and his family were all ardent
devotees of Bhagavan Ramana.  They settled down in Ramana
Nagar, a small colony near Asramam, and were visiting the Asramam,
daily.  Uma, the daughter of Somasundaram Pillai used to sing
songs composed by herself, and sang them in Bhagavan's presence.

One evening, Uma who was sitting in the Hall and singing, suddenly
came near Bhagavan Ramana and told Him:" Bhagavan!  I am not
here.  There is nothing here.  I am seeing Void, there is nothing else!"  Bhagavan Ramana who listened to her thoughtfully told her:
"Find out who is seeing the Void!"   Uma did not reply.  She went
back and sat peacefully. 

Next morning, Bhagavan Ramana mentioned the Kaivalya Navaneetam verse and told her:  "When you had said, you are
seeing Void, I told you to see who is seeing the Void.  You will
soon find out that That is seeing the Void and you are That."

Uma smiled and kept quiet.
