Is this even possible? Sitting under the Kalpaka Vruksham Lord Dakshinamurthy is said to be giving upadesams to sanath, sanaathana rishis. Likewise I have read tamil articles about Paul Brunton went to Bagawan Ramana Maharishi with list of questions but all his questions were answered without asking any questions. Devotees sitting in front of Mahaperiyava – asking nothing – simply crying….Even in Dr Padma Subramanyam’s speech, she talks about a professor from California “accidentally” entered sri matam and described that experience as “lost in time”.
I never got this statement for a very very long time – how questions are answered without asking – never understood this..Who can possibly give some narration about this mystic experience? Only the ones who experienced…Paul Brunton as a great writer had done a great job in describing this in “A search in secret India”. In my opinion that is possibly the closest narration of such experience from page 140 for about 5-6 pages. I am sure most of you would have read this book….Unfortunately after reading the chapters of Bagawan Ramanar and Periyava, I did not proceed further 🙂 I should finish the rest of the chapters too…
I am sure there are several of our own readers must have experienced this with Periyava too. How lucky are those souls?
This book was first published in 1934 and there are so many references in the book saying that there are no more sages in the order of Ramanar, Periyava in India. This statement was in 1934! Think of now!
