Sri Ramana Jnana Vivaham
« on: September 15, 2009, 01:57:10 PM »
Sri Ramana Jnana Vivaham, the wedding of Bhagavan Ramana with Knowledge or
Wisdom, is a poem by the son or nephew of Rangan, Bhagavan Ramana's classmate.

After a few years of Bhagavan Ramana's arrival in Arunachala, this Rangan came
to see Him.  Bhagavan Ramana was talking to him as usual.  Then He said:
Let us go for swimming.  Bhagavan Ramana and Rangan had gone for swimming
together in Madurai days.  Rangan agreed and both left for a tank in the Hill.
Remembering the past, Bhagavan Ramana dived from a higher place into the tank
and kicked Rangan, as He used to do in olden days. 

Rangan also liked it but he observed:  Bhagavan!  In those days when you
dived and kicked me, your legs would be like iron rod.  Now it is like flowers.
Rangan wondered:  Bhagavan!  How come this change?  Bhagavan Ramana
smiled replied:  Ranga!  That body is gone for ever.  The body is transformed

In a few minutes, Rangan asked:  Bhagavan!  There is no other change in You
now!  Then, Rangan picked up some courage and asked:  You are swimming
with me, You are talking as usual!  Bhagavan Ramana smiled and kept quiet.

Then Rangan asked:  Bhagavan!  Can a Jnani get married also?

Bhagavan Ramana then said:  Hmmmmmmmm..........

Rangan's relative then wrote a poem called Sri Ramana Jnana Vivaham. 

Arunachala Siva.
