RM38. ANIMALS IN ASHRAM SITE

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

RAMANA MAHARISHI

Animals and birds in and around
Ashram site came on daily rounds
To be in touch with Bhagavan,
Without harming him or anyone.

Rangaswami Iyengar used to come
On a regular visit to the Ashram.
Once, by midday, he went alone
For a bath in tank under hot sun.

A thirsty tiger came to drink,
Cool water from the tank,
As that was the crucial hour
For wild animals to drink water.

Bhagavan through inner vision
Saw this dangerous situation,
He went and told the tiger
To go and come afterwards.

It went back on his request
Without quenching its thirst,
With his words of kindness
He tackled also wild animals.

A devotee gave him two doves
And the pairs started their plays
Both kept flying everywhere
And jumping here and there.

Squirrels came in their turn,
And he fed them one by one.
To go back they refused,
Until they got their food.

While he was going in a jungle,
Followed by his Ashram people,
All of them felt too much thirsty,
But there was no water nearby.

All monkeys there noticed this
And shook the Jamun trees.
They ate Jamun fruits in plenty
And felt then no more thirsty.

There were many such incidents
When all animals and birds
Were so friendly with him
For his kindness with them.
