Thai Thaapamaartral - Curing Mother's fever
« on: February 14, 2010, 08:28:54 PM »
In 1914, when Bhagavan's mother fell ill seriously, during her brief stay with Him, Bhagavan composed this small prayer to Arunachala:

1. Hill of my refuge that cures the ills of recurring births!
O Lord! it is for Thee to cure my mother's fever.

2. O God that smitest Death itself! My sole refuge!
Vouchsafe Thy grace unto my mother and shield her from
Death. What is Death if scrutinised?

3. Arunachala ! Thou blazing fire of Jnana ! Deign to wrap
my mother in Thy light and make her one with Thee.
What need then for cremation?

4. Arunachala, that chasest away illusion (Maya)!
Why delayest Thou to dispel my mother's delirium! Besides
Thee, is there anyone who with maternal solicitude can
protect the suppliant soul and ward off the strokes of
destiny?

Salutations to Sri Ramana
॥ शांतमात्मनि तिष्ट ॥
Remain quietly in the Self.
~ Vasishta

Dear Nagaraj,

It is excellent.  This poem in original Tamil is appearing in the
Tamil version of A.K. Natarajan's book on Bhagavan and Mother.
This is the ONLY OCCASION, when Bhagavan Ramana requested
anything from Arunachala in His 54 years of life in T'malai.  Arunachala had to listen to Him and do the needful because this
Mother has to be conferred liberation at a later date!

Arunachala Siva.

Dear srkudai,

The prayer for Curing Mother's Fever, is not available in Sanskrit. The official website
of the Asramam also does not contain this song.  But you may try for a CD from the
Asramam.  Arthur Osborne and later Prof. K. Swaminathan and A.R. Natarajan have
given the English translations in prose.

This is the only song where Bhagavan asked for some boon from Arunachaleswara.

Arunachala Siva.
