GLIMPSES OF A GREAT YOGI—III Bhagavan’s Actions Through The Disciple
CHAPTER 28 – MAHASAMADHI OF BHAGAVAN YOGI RAMSURATKUMAR
On Tuesday, January 30, 2001, Sadhu received a call from Yogi Ramsuratkumar Ashram informing him about the critical condition of Bhagavan’s health. Sadhu spoke to Bhagavan’s devotee, Sri Kumar of Auto Caravan, Chennai, and arranged a car to go to Tiruvannamalai. Accompanied by Smt. Bharati and three other devotees, he rushed to Tiruvannamalai. Justice Arunachalam received the sadhu and arranged for his darshan of Bhagavan. Sadhu spent about half an hour by the side of Bhagavan.
On Saturday, February 3, Sadhu arranged a car and accompanied by Bharati, Vivek, Nivedita and children and the devotees from South Africa, drove to Tiruvannamalai. He had darshan of Bhagavan.
On Tuesday, February 20, 2001, in the early morning Sadhu received message from Suchindram Rajalakshmi, a devotee of Bhagavan, that Bhagavan had attained Mahasamadhi. Nivedita also conveyed to Sadhu the message that she received from Justice Arunachalam about the Mahasamadhi of Bhagavan. Sadhu spent the day sitting at the feet of Bhagavan in the Ashram prayer hall. Swami Muruganandam, Swami Devananda, Sri Balakumar and many other prominent devotees had gathered. Sadhu spent the night with devotees and in the morning sat again at the feet of Bhagavan in the Ashram hall doing Ramanama Taraka Japa. He discussed with Justice Arunachalam and others about the final rites to be performed. Swami Shuddhananda of Anandashram, Kanhangad, also arrived. He had difficulty in reaching the platform on which Bhagavan was kept in a sitting posture as only Sadhu, Ma Devaki and Vijayalakshmi were allowed to be by His side. The Ashram workers were pushing away the crowd that wanted to reach near him. Sadhu helped Swami Shuddhananda to reach the platform and sit near Bhagavan. Hundreds of devotes started pouring in to pay homage to Bhagavan and the crowd was a little restless also when the procession around the hall took place. Before interning Bhagavan’s body in the Samadhi pit, He was seated in a bag and mothers who had gathered there started throwing jewels and coins into it. When Sadhu was looking at them wondering whether Bhagavan needed all that in His journey to eternity, a sudden call came from within and Sadhu lost his rational mooring. The golden ring from his finger came off miraculously and fell into the pit and it became the Asana of Bhagavan when His body was immersed into the pit. Sadhu performed the last rites along with others. He collected the Ashes from the pit for preservation in Bhagavan’s shrine in Bharatamata Gurukula Ashram. After the Mahasamadhi rites were over, Sadhu took leave of Justice Arunachalam, Ma Devaki and left for Chennai with Suchindram Rajalakshmi, Anuradha and Sri Viswanathan. On Thursday morning, Sadhu sent a message to Swami Satchidananda about the Mahasamadhi ceremonies to Swami Satchidananda.
