Vayalamoor Sri Srinivasa Iyer and Sri Krishna Swami Iyer
« on: November 19, 2009, 10:27:55 AM »
Vayalamoor Sri Srinivasa Iyer had been having darshan of
Bhagavan Ramana right from 1924.  He was a vilage accountant
in Vayalamoor near Tiruvannamalai.  He owned agricultural lands
and used to come to Tiruvannamalai often and had darshan of
Bhagavan Ramana.  He was given mantra upadesa by Kavyakanta
Ganapati Sastri.  He had his 80th birthday celebrated in the
Asramam precincts with bhiksha to visitors and devotees.  His
son Venkatarman was working in Chennai as Professor of English
in Christian College.

Sri Srinivasa Iyer's elder brother Sri Krishna Swami Iyer was working
in Tiruvannamalai and was visiting Bhagavan Ramana right from
1926.  His wife Saraswati Amma was also an ardent devotee,
and she used to sing Bhagavan's songs melodiously in the Hall.
One day she asked Bhagavan Ramana:  "How to understand a
true Jnani?" Bhagavan Ramana replied kindly:  "When you see
a sadhu in whose presence you get lasting peace is a true Jnani."
Iyer's son Subramanyam used to write letters to Asramam right
from his college days, even on simple matters.  He found peace
in replies of Bhagavan Ramana received with Prasadams.

The families of brothers lived their lives in full contemplation
of Bhagavan Ramana throughout their lives.

Arunachala Siva.
