It was Purattasi Tamil Month,
And Dasara grand season, both.
Had special Puja in the temple.
Pazhanisami had his darshan
And saw the special decoration
Made that day for the Goddess
And wanted Ramana to see this.
Ramana was eager to visit.
He was wearing Sami’s dhoti
With a tilak on his forehead,
And late in the night both went.
If he went there late at night
It might not cause disturbance
To other early visiting devotees,
To help them, he went like this.
But the temple poojari saw him
And he at once recognized him.
He told all the gathered devotees
About Ramana’s unusual presence.
He shouted, “You all come here.
You’ll see, who is present here,
With a tilak, he’s Brahmin Swami
Who has graced us by his presence.”
He took a flower garland
And gave it in his hand,
Besides Goddess prasadam,
As a mark of respect to him
Not to disturb other devotees,
He took those gifts in his hands,
And returned soon to reach
Virupaksha Cave, his place.
His second visit to the temple,
Surrounded by many people,
Was a good experience for him,
For that, the temple honored him.
