Sri Bhagavan's Jayanti - 19.12.2013.
« on: December 19, 2013, 11:48:35 AM »

I could see the video streaming from 9.00 to 10.30 a.m. after which it suddenly stopped. I could not see the end of the
Jyayanti celebrations.

It was a pleasant darshan through video. There were elaborate abhishekam, alankaram and arti.  There were chanting
of Sri Rudram and Vedic mantras.  The flower stings were hanging around the mantapam on which Sri Ramaneswara Maha
Lingam was there.  There were flags and screens arranged with flowers. (padahai says Muruganar in his Punarvasu Vannam.)

*

The Sun, son of Siva was born on 30th December 1879 at 1.00 am in Tiruchuzhi.  It was the auspicious day of Ardra Darsanam.
The birth star of Sri Bhagavan was punarvasu as Ardra had just been over. 

*

Miracles were plenty.  Only a few have been recorded.  The midwife who was attending to Mother Azhagamma was an
old fully blind.  As soon as the boy was born, she could see the flash of light and she cried: Avataram, Avataram!

There are stories where He caught and brought out the young boy (his name was also Ramana) from being drowned in
the Sivaganga Tank inside the temple.  He has Himself has confirmed the deliverance to Mother Azhagamma, Cow Lakshmi,
Echammal and Mudaliar Patti and Sivapraksasm Pillai and perhaps a few others.

*

The first notewothy event in His early life occurred in November 1895. One morning on His way to school He met a relative
and asked him where he was coming from.  The relative replied, 'From Arunachalam'.  This reply had a magical effect on
young Venkataraman. He had heard the name before, but on this occasion, it thrilled Him to the core. (vide Ashtakam Verse 1).

There are several unique features in His life. He never left Tiruvannamalai after His arrival on 1st Sept. 1896.  He never wore
ochre robes.  He never slept with His back fully placed on the couch.  He was ever in Jagrat sushupti state.

On Jayanti days, He used to shine more brilliantly.  His face would glow with special effulgence.  On that anyone who had
been gazed at for minutes had been blessed in their spiritual progress.

*

Silence was His speech. Silence was His glory.  Silence was His weapon and Silence was His Grace.

Om Sri Ramanarpanamastu.

Arunachala Siva.

I was present on 1.1.2010 which was a Jayanti Day.  On that day when celebrations were going on, Smt. Kanakammal came a bit
late and entered through the side door.  Then with some difficulty she prostrated to Sri Ramaneswara Mahalingam, but did not
get up. She had merged with Sri Bhagavan.  Nothing could be a greater Jayanti gift than this.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear sir,

I read about this Kanakammal event but thrilled to know it was Jayanthi day and you were there that time.  Can you kindly narrate what happened then?  Was there silent chantings like Ribhu Gita afterwards with reduced festivities?

I think Smt. Kanakammal was the one who spent lot of time with Sri Muruganar to take guidance from him after Master Sri Ramana left mortal coils.

Regards,
Krishna

Dear Krishnan,

When Smt. Kanakkamal prostrated before Sri Bhagavan and did not rise up, the doctors were rushed.  Her mortal coil was kept
outside the Samadhi Hall and the doctor checked her pulse and declared that she was no longer in the body.  With the help
of her own car in which she had come, her mortal coil was taken to her house.  There the President, Sri Ganesan and others
stood before her mortal coil and paid obeisance. 

In the meantime, the Asramam proceedings that is, Jayanti celebrations continued.  In Sri Bhagavan's Presence, there is no
theettu (impurity) at all. Arti was shown around 11.00 am and the visitors and devotees were as usual fed.

Smt. Kanakammal's mortal remains were sent to crematorium and put to fire by one of her relatives, who had come from
Chennai, (as she had been spinsiter and therefore no sons).  This happened in the evening.

All this happened on 1.1.2010 on the Jayanti Day.  This was the greatest gift for His ardent devotee.

Arunachala Siva.

That is very nice information sir.

If you have Smt. Kanakammal's book you can paste some extracts from there.  Especially on her interactions with Sri Muruganar after Bhagavan's Mahanirvana.
