Mother's Day - Mahapuja -10.06.2015
« on: June 10, 2015, 07:08:36 AM »
Today, Vaikasi, Krishna Paksha, Ashtami, is Mother Azhagamma's Liberation Day. Like Sri Sankara conferred Vishnu Padam to
Aryamba, Sri Bhagavan conferred Mukti to Mother Azhagamma.

.... Mother Azhagamma, the meritorious person who begot Sri Bhagavan, was absorbed into the Self at 8pm. that evening.
Sri Bhagavan sat their in silence for some time before getting up. After He had moved, we covered the body with a new ochre
sari, applied Vibhuti to her forehead, garlanded her and placed her on a seat on the outer veranda....

...How can there be pollution or sorrow for a perfect Jnani who has renounced everything?..

...After eating, during the night Sri Bhagavan sat near the place where we had put the Mother's body..Sri Bhagavan then
announced that the Tiruvachakam should be chanted.  Sri Bhagavan and the devotees took it in turn to read from the book.
In this way we went through the entire Tiruvachakam before 4.00 am...

... Next day at the suggestion of some devotees, it was decided that on the tenth day a samadhi puja should be performed
and till then each day food offerings should be made...Accordingly Sarvadhikari and Ramanathan brought cooked food
from Skandasramam and performed Puja....

Dear sir,

You rightly said,  in Adhi Shankara mother's case, it was not advaita moksha that was possible. Even though Adhi Shankara did try for the same,  Aaryaamba could not observe full advaitic Self realization (videha mukthi)

She was liberated from earthly bondage to Vaikunda and after the end of the current cosmos, she will get liberated along with the Brahma of current satya lokha ( it is krama mukthi)

But incase of Mother Azhagammal,  our beloved Bhagavan Ramana was able to confer full advaitic liberation during the final moments.

This has nothing to do with the jnani's capacity -- one over the other.

But it has definitely to do with the sadhaka's capacity.

Palani swami, valli the deer, Aaryaamba,  a devotee satya rao in 1940s could not make it.   But Mother Azhagammal and cow lakshmi could make it at final moments.
