Namaskaram (Prostration) by Muruganar - Lizard Namaskaram
« on: April 13, 2010, 10:38:59 AM »
Muruganar's namaskarams to Bhagavan Ramana were quite peculiar.
He will do namaskaram as he entered the Hall and keep on hitting
his head on the floor, for several times!  When Bhagavan Ramana
asked some questions, or initiate a conversation, Muruganar would
raise his head only and answer, without getting up.  This was going
on, whenever he did namaskarams for a few minutes.  His raising
the head alone and replying to Bhagavan was humorously called
Lizard Namaskaram or Lizard Talk.  Palli Pechu in Tamil.

Only lizard will raise only its head and look at the prey without
moving or lifting other parts of its body!
