RM09. YOUNG RAMANA SHIFTED

RAMANA MAHARISHI

Shifting Ramana from the cave,
Mudaliar told his helpers to save
The boy from being hit by stones
Thrown by mischievous children.

They moved him to the portal
Of Lord Subramanya Temple,
But he wasn’t aware of this
As he was deeply in trance.

“He was a God-man,” they felt
“For his own body, he cared not,”
And as a “Brahmin Swami” called him
To be taken more care of by them.

Keeping their eyes well open,
They waited for his eyes to open,
Whenever he opened his eyes,
They gave him milk and fruits,

When he didn’t open his eyes,
They opened his mouth by force,
And poured liquid gruel into it
Like a child forced to drink it.

He was shifted to many places.
Like gardens, under trees,
Inside Mangai Pillaiyar Koil,
Just to avoid troublesome people.

By1896, a bold person came
To stay and take care of him,
Uthandi Nayanar was his name,
Who stood like a guard for him.

Once a boy passed his urine,
On Ramana’s backside open,
But he wasn’t for chiding him
While Nayanar ran to hit him.

Ramana was calm and quiet,
Not serious on any such event,
As it made him more polite
When he took it very light.

At this stage Annamalai Thambiran,
Well known to Uthandi Nayanar then,
Took Ramana to a safe Temple,
Called Gurumurtham Samadhi Temple.

Earlier he was serving the Mutt,
Called Kundrakudi Aadhinam Mutt,
He left it due to difference of opinion,
And stayed at Tiruvannamalai Town.

This Samadhi Temple was under his care,
Added to this, he also took Ramana’s care.
He collected food from all donors,
Singing ‘Thevaram’ in the streets.

The collected food he distributed
To those poor people who deserved,
He was such a noble minded Sanyasi,
To take care of this young Sanyasi.
