Reports from Sri Ramanasramam
« on: October 01, 2010, 06:14:07 PM »
Aradhana Day of Sri Muruganar

Tamil Poet Muruganar first came to Bhagavan after reading
Arunachala Akshara Mana Malai and ‘Naan Yaar ?’ On seeing
Bhagavan's exalted state, he felt irresistibly drawn to Him and
finally settled at Tiruvannamalai and led a life of complete
surrender to Bhagavan.

The Samadhi Day of this great devotee of Sri Bhagavan was
solemnly observed on 8th September 2010. On 6th September
devotees from Choolaimedu, Chennai, accompanied by some
inmates of the Ashram, started reciting Muruganar’s Ramana
Sannidhi Murai running into 1851 verses and completed the
recitation on 8th September 2010. At 9.30 a.m. devotees sang
selected verses from Ramana Sannidhi Murai at the Poet’s
Samadhi while the Priests performed Puja to the Lingam in the
Samadhi. At the conclusion of the Puja, accompanied by singing,
Prasad was distributed among the large gathering of devotees.
Homage to Muruganar was also paid at Muruganar’s birth place
‘Sri Muruganar Mandiram’ in Ramanathapuram on his Samadhi
day with special puja, talk and recitation of Siva Puranam and
Ramana Puranam.

Carnatic Music

Abhishek Raghuram, disciple of Sri P.S.Narayanaswamy and
grandson of the brilliant mridangam vidwan, Palghat Raghu and
great-grandnephew of the legendary mridangam wizard Palghat
Mani Iyer, gave a scintillating recital of Carnatic music at the New
Hall of the Ashram on Sunday, 19th September 2010. A young
man of 25, Abhishek delighted the audience from the very first
song and kept them spellbound till the last song.

Abhishek was very ably accompanied on the violin by Sri Mysore
V. Srikanth and on the mridangam by his cousin Sri Anantha

Dear prasanth,

Yes.  I also went through Saranagati issue of Oct. 2010.  The
Choolaimedu group had done a tremendous job by reciting 1000+
verses of Sri Ramana Sannidhi Murai, to remember Muruganar's
absorption in Bhagavan Ramana.  I have seen Muruganar's
Samadhi which is one among the 4 or 5 Samadhis behind Cow
Lakshmi's Samadhi on a higher ground.  There is one song written
by Sri Sadhu Om about his liberation day.

The other item in the e-magazine that attracted me was Brahmasri
Nochur Venkataraman's satsangh on 11th Chapter of Sri Ramana
Gita, which took place in the Asramam.  It was done as per request of Sri V.S. Ramanan.

Arunachala Siva.
