RM30. RAMANA AND LORD MURUGA

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

RAMANA MAHARISHI

Many people compared Ramana
With Pazhani Lord Muruga
For similarities in their actions
And also their mode of dress.

Muruga left his place, Kailash,
When he was young in age.
Ramana left his place Madurai
When he was young in age.

Muruga left Kailash in anger,
Ramana left his place in anger,
Both left their respective places
Out of anger for some reasons.

Muruga lived in Pazhani Hills,
His dress is only a loin cloth.
Ramana in Arunachaleswarar Hills.
He was wearing a loin cloth.

Ramana wanted equal treatment,
To everyone who came to eat,
But when partiality was there,
He got angry with the servers.

Once he gave up buttermilk
As for him, more they gave,
While for others, less they gave,
Which action he did not like.

When plantain fruits were not
There for all, who came to eat,
Why he was served with that fruit
Denying others the same fruit?

Like this, he took objections.
He cared more for his devotees,
Who must get fair treatment,
Without any disappointment.

One day Santhammal served
Ramana some more quantity,
And for others less quantity,
That time silence he observed.

Next day, he called her and said,
“Why to me more you served,
And less for others you served?
On your part, is it fair and good?”

“If you had given me less quantity,
And given them more quantity,
I would have been the happiest man
And appreciated your action then.”

Such a liberal Maharishi he was
In taking good care of his devotees,
Who came daily to worship him
As a living God there to bless them.
