  Grateful Remembrance of Sri Bhagawan
on His Mahasamadhi Day

Dear All

On April 14th, the same day, at 8:13 p.m. IST (please
correct me, if I am wrong) way back in 1950, Sri
Bhagawan attained Mahasamadhi.

A couple of minutes before that He remembered Sri Kunju
Swami, a long-standing devotee and personal attendant of
Sri Bhagawan. Instantly, he was informed. When he
arrived, Sri Bhagawan said to him 'Santosham [literally
meaning 'I am happy' (but actually meaning I am happy
with your services over the years)']. When Sri Kunju
Swami wondered as to what Sri Bhagawan meant, Sri
Bhagawan replied, 'I said 'Thank You' (as they say in
English)'. Of course, the conversation was in Tamil
except for the word 'Thank You'.

Then, Sri Bhagawan asked the attendant to keep the
pillow straight. So long, He was in the sleeping
posture. Now, He resumed His seating posture with His
spine standing erect and leaning against the pillow.
After a while, the breathe seemed to flow with
difficulty. Then, He breathed His Last.

Sri Bhagawan remains as our Self. And, His powerful
Teachings are still guiding people from far and wide.
With the lapse of years, His Teachings seem to gain
greater Force.

May we all seek His unfailing Blessings on our path to
immortality.

May we also gratefully recollect the Glory of Sri Siva
Prakasam Pillai who gave us this wonderful '5 Jewels in
Praise of Sri Bhagawan's Feet'

Yours in Sri Bhagawan,

RK Sankar
