"Everything is Sri Nannagaru's will" - (By Dr.Mithin)



He then directed me to the Ramana Kshetram in Jinnuru.

'Use my room there. I will come by afternoon for the meeting.' He said.

I nodded and went out.

I looked at the sticker on the gate of Sri Nannagaru's house.

It was Sri Ramakrishna's. Thakur was sitting there and behind Him a sun was rising.

The words on the sticker read

'He who wants to realize God from the depths of his being will realize Him. He must.'

I smiled and went along to the ashram which was scenically located amidst an ocean of fields of coconut trees and a beautiful stream flowing nearby.

In the ashram there was a replica of Arunachala Mountain made as a mound of mud about ten feet in height. People were going around it. I too hastened to go around it and felt blissful.

Lunch was being served. I checked into Sri Nannagaru's room and came for lunch.

After having a sumptuous lunch I retired for some minutes into the room accompanied by my friends and Sri Nannagaru's devotees, Sri Vijay garu and Sri Shiva garu.

During my small interaction with them in Sri Nannagaru's room I felt with sudden clarity that the world truly is a dream and our life is made of dream stuff.

I looked around the room when suddenly there was a banging on the door. Devotees were frantically trying to awaken me I felt as Sri Nannagaru must have arrived.

Truly so, Sri Nannagaru was coming into the ashram accompanied by many devotees and I hastily stood in line for darshan.

Sri Nannagaru looked at me as he passed me, stopped suddenly and held my hand and said 'Come. Talk to the people for some time.'


He took me to the stage which overlooked the Kshetram grounds and made me sit comfortably.

'Do you want a chair?' He asked.

I shook my head.

He asked the technician to adjust the mike and indicated for me to speak to the audience in English.

I nodded and started ' Om Sri Nanna Paramatmane Namaha'

'Move closer to the mike' He said.

I nodded again and like a water faucet which gushes water when the nozzle is opened, I opened my mouth and waited for Sri Nannagaru's Will to fill it with words.
The words I talked were to this effect

'Om Sri Nanna Paramatmane Namaha. Whatever exists is Sri Nannagaru. The ones who are listening is Sri Nannagaru. The one who is talking is Sri Nannagaru. The art of listening or talking is Sri Nannagaru. So what can Sri Nannagaru talk about Himself to Himself. The best course is hence to remain silent and worship Him in Silence.
Swami Vivekananda once said that live in the world knowing it to be Mother's Leela or go to the Himalayas and give yourself up to sadhana. This truth I realize due to my proximity with Sri Nannagaru.

Whatever is His wish, His leela.

I deep sleep the world did not exist nor did this ego. Hence the ego is dream stuff. But in this dream stuff one should tune oneself to God's Will which is ever present.
This world exists as a sport of Sri Nannagaru's will for me. I am a doll which dances to His Will. I have no life in me. It is Sri Nannagaru's energy that makes this doll move. The life in me is Sri Nannagaru's Will. If He asks me to duck, jump or run I will do the same. I have no will of my own. It is Sri Nannagaru's Will that makes me move.

Sri Ramakrishna once said that for God Who has created the world in play it is His Will to give Moksham to anyone He pleases though he deserves it or not.

I too am saying the same thing. My God is Sri Nannagaru. If He will He can give Moksham to even a granite stone.'

I continued to speak like that for some time after which Sri Nannagaru took the mike and gave his talk.


I walked out of the Kshetram into the surrounding fields as Sri Nannagaru was talking.

Just before my talk had commenced there was a beautiful song on the Divine Mother by a group of musicians in the Kshetram which went as 'Jaya Jaya Vaishnavi Durge Amma'

Now as I whiled my time in the fields I saw two 5 year old girls smiling and playing together.

Charmed at their innocence and beauty I went near them and said ' Whats your name sweeties?'

The girls smiled and one of them wearing a blue dress said ' I am Vaishnavi. She is Durga.'

It did not strike me peculiar then but Vaishnavi beckoned me close and opened a small bag and took out a blue colored fancy decorative bead and gave it to me and smiled. Durga took out a red bead and gave it to me.

I thanked them and left.

It was only an hour later did it strike me!

Did the Divine Mother Whose songs were being played before the speech come down as the two girls to hear Sri Nannagaru speak?!!!

I broke out in bliss at the thought.

Soon I took leave of Sri Nannagaru and started home.

  1. The mind is nothing other than the `I'-thought. The mind and the ego are one and the same.

    Grace of Nannagaru is countless.
