Prayers and Nama for a Noble Soul
The world boasts of many wonders. One true wonder of the world is Bhagavan Ramana Maharishi. Sri Subramanianji, fondly known to all as ‘Mani Anna’ hails from the illustrious lineage of Bhagavan’s family. His elder brother was named Ganesan and when this child was born, Bhagavan Ramana Maharishi remarked, ‘Ganesha’s brother would have to be Subramanian’ and was thus named.
An embodiment of selfless seva to Sri Ramanashramam, Sri Mani Anna symbolised kindness, simplicity, administrative finesse and hospitality. When one thinks of him, a beautiful image of this energetic person sporting a sweet smile, clad in white carrying out his administrative tasks in a loving and majestic manner comes to mind at once. By being a gracious host, he has left a lasting mark in the hearts of all devotees of Bhagavan, spiritual seekers & visitors to the ashram. He was most supportive of anyone who carried the divine teachings of Bhagavan to all.
‘Mani’ means ‘Bell’. Just like the temple bells announce the worship of Lord to all, this ‘Mani’ anna lived and breathed to carry Bhagavan’s teachings far and wide across the world. Not just the divine shabda (sound) of this Mani, but the entire soul has merged in Bhagavan Sri Ramana on 19/7/2022 at Thiruvannamalai.
Maharanyam Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji and the entire Namadwaar family offer respect, prayers and nama to this noble soul at this hour.
