Greatness of Sri Bhagavan
« on: July 25, 2010, 07:08:25 PM »

Question: Bhagavan suffered from cancer and left his body. What do you think about that?

Ramanapadananda: He took upon himself the sins of his devotees and suffered on their behalf. Just pray to him with all your heart. That will be enough for him to take upon himself all your sins.

Once, when he was asked by a devotee why he was becoming weaker and weaker from day to day, he replied, ‘I am taking upon myself the sins of my sincere devotees. What do you think I am here for?’

              Bhagwan Shri Ramana was Parmatman, Supreme Consciousness,or Shri Arunachala INCARNATE
              in the guise of human form in this relative and phenomenal world to bestow liberation to 
              whoever turned to Him earnestly.

                          Hail To Shri Arunachala !
                          Hail to Shri Ramana !

Dear prasanth and others,

There are many presuppositions about Bhagavan Ramana's terminal

1. He took upon the sins of His devotees;

2. He took upon the remaining vasanas of His Mother.  One devotee
had a vision that from the left shoulder where there was sarcoma
wound, Mother's face appeared!

3.  As said in the post, He took upon the sins of the devotees,
including His Mother.  If He had sankalpa to cure Himself, He would
have done it in a second.  But He had no ego, therefore no sankalpa.

4.  He had perhaps decided that there should be some manner in
which He should leave the body.  He has Himself said:  "Who
will keep the leaf-plate from which one has completed eating?"
So, He decided to leave the body since His mission was over.

Arunachala Siva.
