Sri Bhagavan's 135th Jayanti - 06.01.2015
« on: January 06, 2015, 08:29:30 AM »
Sri Bhagavan's 135th Jayanti falls today, the punarvasu star day of the month of Margazhi, Dhanur month.  He
was born on 29-30 of December 1880.  The members may shower praises on His teachings and life. I shall however
confine this post only to certain uniqueness of Sri Bhagavan.

1. As soon as He was born, the blind mid wife attending to Mother Azhagammal,  had seen a flash of light. She cried
'Here is an avataram born; here is an avataram born!' 

2. He attained Self Realization in less than twenty minutes in Madurai house, upstairs.  No sadhu or Jnani had attained
Self Realization in such a short period.  They have worked life time for this.

3. He was an ordinary boy in His childhood, the only  special feature being that He used to sleep very deeply
for hours and no one could wake Him up easily.  However, perhaps this was an indication to show that He would
only remain wakeful sleep, thoongal thoonguvathu in His years at Tiruvannamalai.

4.  He never left Tiruvannamalai for 54 years that is, till His Maha Nirvanam. He was living in Temple, Guru moortham,
and a few places in the Hill and for sometime in Pachai Amman Kovil.  He never left the town.

5. He was an ati varanaasrami, He wore only a white koupina and He insisted even His devotees not to wear ochre robes,
since internal renunciation was more important than the outward clothing of ochre robes.  He had even no name for Him
and the name Sri Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi was conferred to Him by Kavyakanta Ganapati Muni.

6. In spite of staying in Tiruvannamalai, He like a magnet attracted people even from Western countries and from
all parts of India.

7. When He left His mortal coil, a meteor like star moved skyward from the Nirvana Room flew high and perched on the
summit of Arunachala.   

On this day of His Jayanti, let us pray to Him and seek His grace for progress in our spiritual pursuits.

Arunachala Siva.
