Got the news that Swami Ramanananda was absorbed in Arunachala last night.
Known as Sri TN Venkatraman in his poorvashrama, he was a pure expression of the energy of goodness, and has been one of the key instruments in the service of Sri Ramanashramam. He was in his 90s, and took sanyasa some years ago.
Among countless others, I too have been a recipient of his spontaneous affection and blessings. I will always cherish memories of his wholesome greeting “Arunachala!”, his smiling and radiant face.
He was the nephew of the sage of Arunachala, Sri Ramana Maharshi.
