Mahanirvana Day - 14 April
« on: April 13, 2013, 07:55:50 AM »
On the eve of Bhagawan's Mahanirvana Day - I have nothing but to pray I live by the following words.

Hridaya Kuhara Madhye Kevalam BrahmaMaatram
Hyahamahamiti Saakshaat Aatma Rupenena Bhati

Hridi Visha Manasa Svam Chinvata Majjata Va
Pavanachalana Rodhat Aatmanishto Bhavatvam

Sanjay.
Salutations to Bhagawan

Dear Sanjay,

Nice.  The Maha Nirvana Day of Sri Bhagavan,  is observed as per Hindu custom on the 13th day of waning moon in the Tamizh month of Chitra.  Accordingly, this year, it falls on 07.05.2013, Tuesday.  Of course on 14th April, the devotees assemble near the Nirvana
Room and chant Arunachala Akshara Mana Malai between 8 and 9 pm.  Last year, this English calendar day chanting was videoed
in the official website of the Asramam.

Sri Ramanarpanamastu.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear All,

Last night between 8 pm and 9 pm. the official website of Asramam showed the video of live chanting of Aksharamana Maalai
by about 50+ devotees sitting in front of Sri Bhagavan's Nirvana Room.  The chanting was led by Sri V.S. Ramanan.  The video
was slightly defective, with some lines of the composition jumping.  However overall it was quite nice. Sri Bhagavan's
nirvana room was kept open with flower decorations, and the earlier photograph (that is taken 10 days before His Maha Nirvana,
with a large bandage on the left arm and a swollen head) was displayed for the occasion.  Various electric lights and oil lamps
were burning and it added to the beauty of the atmosphere.

Arunachala Siva.
