Amusing story
« on: October 22, 2010, 04:47:55 PM »
-- While all this talk was going on, Dr. Srinivasa Rao was
massaging Bhagavan’s feet which had some rheumatic trouble.
Bhagavan humorously remarked, “Doctor is now giving diksha
to me by touch.” About 15 days ago, when the Doctor was
massaging Bhagavan’s feet, Bhagavan asked him to stop,
saying, “What you have done is enough. You may go and sit
down. I shall do some massaging myself and get some punya (spiritual merit).
Why should you alone have all the punya?” and began
massaging himself.

(Day by Day with Bhagavan p. 27)

Once Viswanatha Swami washed the codpiece of Bhagavan.
Bhagavan Ramana kept quiet for a day.  On the second day,
He said:  Viswanatha, do not wash my codpiece any more.  Today
you give your dhoti and I should wash it and do some seva for you!
Viswanatha Swami was blushed. 

Today is Viswanatha Swami's Liberation Day.  He merged with
Bhagavan Ramana on this day [moon digit day] in 1979.  I thought
someone write about him, this great devotee, who is the author
of Sri Ramana Ashottaram and he was also Editor of Mountain Path for some time.

On hearing of Echammal 's death,  Bhagavan is said to have feelingly observed:

"I often told her not to undergo this trouble; but she would not listen.  Unless she served food to her Bhagavan, she would never eat herself.  Now Mudaliar Patti is continuing in her line.  So Echamma has shuffled off her load; but my load still remains ."

Dear Balaji,

Yes. Sri Bhagavan helped Echammal and Mudaliar Patti to attain salvation. When Sivaprakasam Pillai passed away in
some other town and when the telegram came, He said: Sivapraksam Pillai has become Sivapraksam. ie. Light of Siva
and thus confirmed his moksha.

Arunachala Siva.

Among Sri Bhagavan's attendants was one Vaikunda Vaasar (another name for Vishnu). Once when he was lying down in Sri Bhagavan's hall he noticed a snake near him. He became petrified and hastily approached Bhagavan pointing out the snake. Sri Bhagavan looked at the snake and said with a laugh, addressing the devotee, “Vaikunda Vaasar, your bed has come looking for you. Must be a smooth bed,” referring to Sri Vishnu's lying posture on the snake.

Dear Balaji,

Vaikunta Vasar was so afraid that he jumped on to the sofa of Sri Bhagavan refusing to come down! Sri Bhagavan said to the
serpent: Poda, Poda, avan payappadarAn... go, go, he is afraid, The serpent smoothly left the Hall.

Arunachala Siva.

The continuing story of Sri Vaikuntha Vasar is very nice.

Thank you very much sir

As soon as Chinnaswami became the Sarvadhikari (general manager) of the Ashram, he was full of zest and declared that henceforth adequate meals were to be served in the Ashram, even if it meant buying and storing foodstuffs. Bhagavan used to make fun of him: "Well, store up, go on storing. Have rice from Nellore, dhal from Virudupatti, all the best and the costliest." The Ashram was growing, the number of visitors increasing, and prepared food was needed at all hours, so the Sarvadhikari was allowed to have his way.
