RM39. HUMOROUS INCIDENTS

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

RAMANA MAHARISHI

There were a few humorous incidents
Bhagavan told on different dates.
It revealed his humorous tendencies,
During his younger and older days.

Once, as a young boy he stood
For a photo in black and white film
A fly sat on his nose at that time
When the camera was clicked.

As its final result, it was
His hand o’er his nose,
That was hiding his face.
As a bad show in his case

In his letter to his cousin
He wrote, “With blessings,”
While his cousin at that time
Was ten years older than him.

When his cousin told him,
“You’re not that much old
To bless me when you’re
Not my senior but a junior.”

Once a music party came
Sang his name as Ramanar
Instead of his name Ramanan
As a mark of respect to him.

He then jokingly commented
“One should call Lord Sivan
As Lord Sivar, if the letter “N”
Has no respect to the Lord.”

Once a fake Sadhu attracted
Many people by his deeds,
Like driving away ghosts
Curing diseases with ashes.

But Bhagavan was so simple
He only advised those people
To meditate inward to know
“Who am I” without any show.

So, they remarked what kind
Of a Sadhu he was when his hand
Wasn’t showing any miracle
Like the fake sadhu, who was real.

More jokes he said now and then,
To keep them all in good humor,
But on the top of all these things
He was ever in pursuit of his “Self.”
