RM08. VENKATARAMAN AS SANYASI

a poem by Rajaram Ramachandran, India - poetry writer, author, poet

RAMANA MAHARISHI

The spiritual path of a Sanyasi
It isn’t practically that much easy.
So many conditions are there
For one to observe everywhere.

He mustn’t keep any secret,
Nor have with him any asset,
No money he should keep.
On the floor he must sleep.

He must control his anger.
Also control his hunger.
He must use moon light free
And stay only under a tree

He can stay in a temple,
Or outhouse of a temple,
Or hill, inn, cave, hut
Or any river bed or mutt.

No taste in food he must feel.
He must treat all as equal,
Like his own father or mother,
Or his own brother, or sister.

He must keep on moving,
Giving everyone his blessing,
With no likes or dislikes,
For all God’s creations.

When Ramana took sanyas
A Temple Hall was his choice,
But he had to move to a hill
To avoid young ones trouble.

With his innermost vision
Seshadri Swamigal had seen,
This boy’s rotten condition,
Who was in deep meditation.

He told Venkatesa Mudaliar
One of his close followers
To go to the Temple cave
And take care of this boy.

But he was given proper attention
By Rathinammal, a temple visitor,
Wife of Vellore Velayudha Chettiar,
For his daily food and medicine.

With the help of good people,
He was saved from the Temple,
And was brought to a safe place
For his treatment of the disease.

As this boy was in deep trance
He wasn’t aware of things
That happened in and around,
And he sat like a dead wood.
