Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi and the Monkey

Bhagawan Ramanar was not just a saint but a God for all, this may surprise many but the following incident as narrated by Mrs.Taleyarkhan a Parsi devotee will make it evident. 

“Maharshi led an absolutely simple life and from a very young age lived in the hills of the Arunachala. In course of time Arunachala became an internationally famous pilgrim center,attracting devotees from all parts of the world..

Maharshi seemed to have had a very soft corner for all the animals. Among the several animals that have inhabited the holy Arunachala hills, the Monkeys were the most frequent visitors to Maharshi’s ashram (hermitage).. When Bhagwan was in the Virupaksha cave,an adult male Monkey badly mauled a little Monkey..

When it fell down motionless, the attacker left it for dead. After a while, the little Monkey has gained it’s senses and limped slowly to Maharshi’s ashram probably for protection..Bhagwan took pity on the hapless creature; dressed it’s wounds; and nourished it back to health..

Bhagwan then named the little one “Nondi” and asked,”when you become the king of your tribe, will you ever forget me..”..The monkey, who seemed to have understood the words of Bhagwan, shook his head as though he will not forget Bhagwan when he became a king..

Nondi,the monkey then went back to his home and in due course of time became the king of all the other monkeys in the hills.. As promised,Nondi visited Bhagwan one day with his queen and the retinue and enjoyed the hospitality of Maharshi..

Bhagwan too blessed the Monkey and it’s family..All the monkeys prostrated before the holy Lotus feet of Bhagwan and left for the jungle..” Mrs.Taleyarkhan concluded..

Bhagvan Sri Ramana Mahirishi – The Champion of Equality from Thiruvannamalai the land of Unity & peace.

Today the world is facing one of Mankind’s largest and worst ever turmoil in the name of the Coronavirus. This disaster is spread all along the world without any differences. The Many world is paralysed but the heavenly earth keeps spinning, Trees are Happy, Animals are Happy, Its raining as usual, we get to see the mountains far away and our air seems to be clear.

This has a big lesson to us. Major Chadwick an American disciple of Bhagavan once asked him ‘Do you have disciples?’ Bhagavan swiftly answered No, he further asked ‘You say we need a Guru to attain Liberation?” Bhagavan answered Yes. Both the questions and the answers seemed very contrary to one another, confused Chadwick asked Bhagvan Shri Ramana Maharishi ‘I am Confused’ Bhagavan explained him ‘What do you think brought you here such a long distance and made you remain so long? Why do you doubt? If there had been any need to seek a Guru elsewhere you would have gone away long ago.’

This answer opens up a huge ocean of philosophy, Bhagavan always said ‘Don’t search your master outside, but search within’ and that’s what Thiruvannamalai is all about. Thiruvannamalai is a Land where people realize their self, the calmness on these mountains tells every human who he is and his purpose of life.

Man was born to lead a life of equality and search himself within him, Ramana Maharishi always advocated equality in every sense, he never differentiated between his deciles, he never saw their status, colour, religion, caste or creed. Bhagavan Ramana Mahirishi lived an example for Equality.

When we see things happening around the world today we miss Bhagavan to the fullest. People who frequent to Thiruvannamalai will know the true sense of Unity and equality on every step we keep on the Girivalam path. In Thiruvannamalai everyone searches for their inner selves at the feet of Lord Arunachaleshwarar. You may find people sitting all over forgetting their Rich, Power, every worldly affair they poses.

We wish this Evil will go away soon and People come to Thiruvannamalai in search of Peace.
