Sri Ramana Reminiscences – Kindle EditionBy Gurram Subbaramayya
G.V. Subbaramayya was an educationist and poet. He was deeply devoted to Sri Ramana Maharshi with an approach that was both childlike and spontaneous. From 1933 he had the privilege of moving with Sri Ramana Maharshi on very intimate terms. Subbaramayya attained the Lotus Feet of his Master in May 1970.
Ten days before Maharshi’s Maha Nirvana … seeing him was strictly restricted because of his health condition. However a devotee called G.V. Subbaramayya and invited him to the Master’s presence. As he entered the small room where he lay, Maharshi said, “Come in.” As I went in and stood before Him, Sri Ramana asked me in Telegu, “What do you want?”
I said with streaming eyes:
“I want Abhayam,” (“security from fear”).
Maharshi replied with overflowing Grace:
“Saree Icchanu,” (“Yes, I have given it”).
Maharshi added, “Don’t fear. As it came, so it will go.”
At once I felt as though a heavy load were lifted from my heart and as I touched His Lotus Feet with my hands and head a thrill of ecstasy passed through my frame, and I felt like being plunged in an ocean of Peace and Bliss. That vision of Sri Maharshi and His gracious words granting me Abhayam (fearlessness) have taken permanent abode in my being and are guarding me from all life’s ills.
This book is a must read for those pursuing His path while leading the life of a family man. It shows how divine compassion supports us in very difficult tragic circumstances. The author lived a life that most of us can relate to and Master’s guidance and solace to him touches our Hearts directly.
