Palani Swamy

Palani Swami used to be like a shadow of Ramana. He used to be always with bhagavan. He is a great dispassionate saint. It is hard to attain victory over God's Maya. When it was four days before death he suffered with high fever. Some devotees brought mangoes for him and gave it to him. He loves mangoes. He dint put them aside, but he cleaned the mango and was ready to eat. At the same time, Ramanaswamy arrived. Being a big saint by himself, after seeing Ramanaswamy, he hid the mango. Bhagavan was acting like as if he doesn't know anything. He sat beside Palaniswamy and asked how is your fever etc., and then said I can smell mango here. Palaniswamy lied and said "There isn't a mango here". The desire to eat mango made him to lie. Bhagavan said - "you are saying there is no mango, then how can I smell mango here?” He went to the place where he hid mango, and took the mango and sat in front of him. Without giving a piece to Palaniswamy, he ate the entire mango and thrown away the seed. If we say don’t eat, it dint seem like he would stop eating, hence Bhagavan ate full mango and left, that is 'Guru'. He will look into your weaknesses that are troubling you, he will remove them and at last with his hands he gave Moksha.
