Tour of Sri Ramanasramam - Photos 11 & 12

These photographs show the Mahanirvana room where Bhagavan left the body on 14th April 1950.

Most of Bhagavan's personal things are on display in this room, plus many of the innumerable gifts given to him by devotees over the years. This room is generally kept locked, but the glass doors provide a clear insight into the simplicity of Bhagavan's lifestyle and most of the furniture pictured in the many photographs can be seen here also.

Access to the inside of this room is usually not permitted as it is very tiny inside. This is the room where Cartier Bressant took the last photographs ever made of Bhagavan whilst alive.

The small size of this room with its adjoining bathroom came as a surprise to me; they appear to be a lot larger in the photographs taken during Bhagavan's final months.
