Bhagavan Sri Ramana is personally present here
« on: February 09, 2010, 09:59:47 AM »
Swatantra writes in his article for MP or Call Divine:-

Bhagavan Ramana is personally present here.  To demand proof
is like wanting proof that the sun is shining overhead.  His presence
is known or 'seen' by those with eyes to see.  But others even for
others, even a positive proof would be useless.

If a few phenomenal incidents are cited to prove His perosnal
present here, the logical mind may well dismiss them all as the
fantastic or merely imagination.  A man of faith could accept
the facts on hearing them but would that instil conviction of
Bhagavan Ramana's presence as a living reality?

For those who come to visit Sri Ramanasramam, I would like to
offer my advice.  Please do not come a tourist merely with an
idea that you are going to sight --  see an Asramam.  Even if it
bears the name of one of the greatest Rishis of modern times.
Don't go through the ritual of offering prayers and puja in various
shrines, receiving prasadam and vibhuti only to go back satisfied
that you have 'done' with another place.

Of course, visiting holy places does have great effect, but that
in itself is not enough.  It may be enough for the uninitiated
but seekers of the Truth require a sense of holy presence, such
as can be experienced at Sri Ramanasramam.  It is a fact that
Bhagavan is here.

Towards the end of His bodily manifestation, He said:  "They
say that I am going, but where can I go?  I am here."

Once when someone wrote a booklet criticising Sri Ramanasramam, Bhagavan Ramana remarked that the author had done a great
service to the cause of Truth.  When asked for an explanation,
He said that this book would keep away the insincere and superficial people and only the sincere Truth-seekers would continue to come.  In the same way, the Maharshi Himself has done a great service to the cause of Turth by withdrawing himself from the physical plane.  He has made Himself unavailable to the worldly eye, while the seeker with spiritual sight, His living presence is very much here.

Beautiful article. every person to whom i have talked..they are share the same sentiment...that 'bhagavan is here with us..right now'. Interviews of direct devotees also say the same things. Smt. Dhiru Patel had come back to ramanasramam after some 50 years..and she has just one thing to say..that i never missed the ashram or his presence. She says...he is always there whenever you are in trouble to guide you and support you. She says through all her joys, sorrows, confusions ..everything that shes been through, bhagavan was always there!!

salutations to ramana!

Dear SLakshmi,

I remember my meeting with Lucy Ma's daughter. Lucy Ma came to
Bhagavan Ramana in 1940s and stayed in Tiruvannamalai upto 90s,
when she had merged with Bhagavan.  Her daughter I forgot her name,
I have mentioned it in some old post, had come to help her ailing mother
and simply continued to stay in Tiruvannamalai.  I saw her in the dining
hall queue during my July 09 visit.  And again in Dec/Jan visit last.
The same smiling face, the same brilliance in her eyes, a bright red
kumkum on her forehead, white sari....  She was talking to my wife
too and remembered her (Lucy Ma's daughter's) mother.  She said
that -- Where can I go?  I am here. And He is here. Bhagavan is eternally with me, whether I go for sometime to Germany or not.   

I think the doors of liberation are wide open only for such persons.

Arunachala Siva.
