Atma Vidya Vilasam - (2)
« on: August 17, 2008, 11:59:13 AM »
Sri Sadasiva Brahmendra's life is said to be full of many miracles.
He was born in Madurai, in a Telugu Brahmin family.  After
wedding, even before he could start a family life, he left
the home and went to his guru Sri Paramasivendra.  After
a brief teaching of upanishads, his guru told him, "Keep still".
He faithfully followed and so many siddhis came to him, but
he did not care.  Once he was walking in a town, near a harem
of a Mohammeddan King.  Seeing him going naked and that too,
without garments, the King chased him and cut his hand.  Sri
Sadasiva, bent down, took his severed hand, placed it back on
his shoulder and continued to walk.  The Nawab was dumbfounded!
The Nawab fell on his feet and sought his forgivenss.  On another
occasion, when he was doing taps on the dry sands of Kaveri river,
a flash flood came and fixed him into a whirlpool.  After three months,
when the waters dried up, he stood up and walked to the banks
of the river.  On more occasion, he was misunderstood as a thief,
when he was sleeping near the rice bags held near a rice field,
and the owner raised his hand to beat him.  That fellow's hand
became paralytic.  On another occasion, when some small urchins
wanted to see Madurai and Siva temple there, he took them through
sky, showed them the place, got some sweets for eats and brought
them back safe to their village near Kaveri. 

Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi has translated a verse of
Sri Sadasiva Brahmendra, as verse 37 of Ulladu Narpadu (Anubandam).

Sri Vidyananada Giri, one of Sadavsiva's disciples, after one or two generation, came to Bhagavan and got his 'upadesa'.

Sri Sadasiva Brahmendra's 'samadhi' is in a place called Nerur,
near Tiruchirapalli.

Arunachala Siva.

Once while negotiating to go upwards in a difficult situation on Arunachala Hill Bhagawan lost hold of the grip over the stone and he fell down
deep in a valley and it seems that some stones fell over him and he broke one of his fingers.Later sometime when a disciple pointed out
the hanging part of the finger he placed it in it's natural place so easily.They are incarnations of Siva capable of doing anything they like.

Dear DRPVSSN Raju, Yes, Bhagavan did that.  He also did the
same for Palaniswami, when he broke his toe.  But when He
had stings of honey bees, when He accidentally trampled on
the honeycomb in the Hill, and when He had a swollen left
leg, with a thousand stings, He allowed the natural healing to
take place and He did not cure Himself immediately.  Because,
in this case, He had committed an injury to honeybees and He
had to atone it.  In other cases, the accidents were natural and
so He decided to cure Himself and Palanswami immediately.

Arunachala Siva.
