RM12. THE LIFE OF PAZHANISAMI

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

RAMANA MAHARISHI

In the last Chapter we read about
The helper Pazhanisami in short,
But what is his past life history
Let us see in this chapter briefly,

He was from Kerala by birth
But he served till his death
The great Ramana Maharishi
For nearly twenty-one years.

Srinivasa Iyer, a devotee
Of young Ramana Maharishi,
Told him, “Serve Maharishi,
Instead of local Lord Ganapathi.”

“Ganapathi will not be angry,
If you serve him sincerely,
His body is soaked with blood
And many times he foregoes food.”

Under Iyer’s pressure daily,
He went to Gurumurtham
Where Maharishi was in trance
With a bright divine face.

He was easily then convinced
That any devotional service he did
To Maharishi would take him
To lotus feet of God anytime.

With an intention to do service
He came to Maharishi’s place
And looked after his every need
Like a mother did to her child.

He went daily on rounds,
To bring rice from donors,
Cooked and fed first Maharishi
And then ate the left over happily.

Ramana was also happy
In his devotional company,
He lived like a nice servant,
And earned Ramana’s respect.

When he was in death bed,
Ramana kept his one hand
O’er the dying man’s head,
And on chest, his other hand.
