H.C. KHANNA DAY - 21.07.2016
« on: July 23, 2016, 01:08:28 PM »
Today is H.C. Khanna's Liberation Day.

Mr. H.C. Khanna came with his family sometime around May- June 1946 to have darshan
of Sri Bhagavan.  He asked many questions to Sri Bhagavan, inter alia, how to remove the
idea that the body is not the Self and how to keep the Self in Heart while doing occupation.
He had come from Kanpur.  His wife was an illiterate and had seven children.  She asked
how to do self inquiry with all the family chores.  Sri Bhagavan answered them with great
patience and compassion;

The family returned to Kanpur after a few days.  Perhaps Khanna must have come several
times to Sri Bhagavan after the first visit and should have done self inquiry, thoroughly. 
He attained Liberation later in course of time. 

His Samadhi is in Kurangu Thottam along with those of Cohen, Chadwick and Lucy Ma's Mother. 

There is not much reference about Khanna except in Day by Day of Devaraja Mudaliar in three places.

I met Khanna's son and his sons and daughters-in-law sometime during one of my visits to the
Asramam.  He said that he comes with his family every year once on his father's liberation day.   

Arunachala Siva.
