RM15. SHARING THE FOOD

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

RAMANA MAHARISHI

When the cave’s agent charged fees,
Ramana moved out to sit under trees,
But back he came to the cave later on
When the agent stopped his collection.

As the agent felt for his action
And asked for Ramana’s pardon
He came back there once again,
Not to cause the agent any pain.

Such a soft heart Ramana had,
Not to treat anyone as bad,
When one regrets for his action
This was his nature to mention.

Virupaksha Cave was good in winter,
But it was very hot in summer,
When visitors suffered from heat
He thought of their interest.

In summer inside Mango tree cave,
In winter inside Virupaksha cave,
Like this he moved in every season,
For their comfortable darshan.

Earlier Pazhanisami only served him,
As time passed, many devotees came.
They stayed there to serve him
With their pleasure all the time.

All the offerings visitors brought,
Like milk, fruits, biscuits, meals packet,
Whatever available they shared equally,
Thus they spent their time happily.

When there was shortage of food,
They, in streets, went round,
Rice from houses they collected.
Then cooked and shared the food

His ‘Arunachala Aksharamanamalai’ song,
They all in the streets sang,
While collecting the dole rice
From ladies of different houses.

This kind of sharing the food,
It was found morally good,
As they were there, not for food,
But to remain spiritually good.
