Open Your mouth!
« on: February 09, 2010, 10:52:22 AM »
K.K. Nambiar writes in his reminscences:-

A couple of visits to Bhagavan Ramana made me devoted to Him
and I wished that I should have darshan of Him often.  Fortunately,
my brother-in-law Sri P.C. Nambiar got transferred to Tiruvannamalai as the Chief of the hospital there.  P.C. Nambiar had absolutely
no faith in Bhagavan and he did not even like his wife Madhavi
Amma (my sister) visiting Bhagavan Ramana frequently.  She
was visiting the Asramam, a few times much against the liking
of her husband.  He had even thrown away the fruits and flowers
kept ready for her Tiruvannamalai visit.

Once my brother in law was asked to visit Bhagavan for His
tooth ache.  P.C. Nambiar went to the Hall and told Bhagavan
in Malayalam, in singular:  "Open your mouth!"   Bhagavan Ramana opened His mouth and he extracted the tooth. After this visit,
P.C. Nambiar became thoroughly a changed person.

He started permitting his wife to visit and have darshan of Madhavi Amma.  He also started visiting the Asramam, to sit in the Hall
and do meditation.  Though he never asked any questions to
Bhagavan, the fact remained that he had become a changed person, after seeing Bhagavan Ramana opening His mouth for dental
extraction.

*

1. One cannot but think here, though it is not mentioned explicitly,
what P.C. Nambiar 'saw' in Bhagavan Ramana's mouth.  We are
reminded of Srimad Bhagavatam, where mother Yasoda asked
Krishna to open his mouth to see whether he had consumed sand.
She saw in Krishna's mouth, all the universe and became dumbfounded!

2. Madhavi Amma was one of the ardent devotees of Bhagavan
Ramana.  She had said once:  If I were to be a man, I would
have never allowed any other attendant to touch and massage
Bhagavan's legs!  She was in fact, allowed to do some fomentation to Bhagavan's legs with piece of cloth, soaked in boiling water.
She was a doctor's wife.  She knew the business.  She used to
do the fomentation, by keeping the hot and wet cloth very near
to Bhagavan's legs but without touching them with her hands
or with that cloth.

Yes...infact the tamil translation sounds much more appalling " bhagavan vaayi thora" - he said! subsequently there was such a huge transformation. We can see him in a big group photo of bhagavan and devotees taken at the ashram. Madhavi amma standing among other devotees at the back and Sh. Nambiar sitting with his child at the feet of bhagavan!

Subramaniam Sir,

Was it the same madhavi amma who got initiation from bhagavan saying " see she has prayed to arunachala", on march 12th, after she finished reciting the aksharamana malai?
