Sri Nannagaru's Visit

As is his usual custom Sri Nannagaru arrived at Arunachala today for his annual Deepam visit. We expect him to remain until about December 5th. Sri Nannagaru hails from a small place called Jinnuru near Bhimavaram which is in the heart of the rural district in Andhra Pradesh.

Sri Nannagaru first came to Arunachala in 1957 at the age of 21 years, in answer to a dream with Sri Ramana Maharshi. As Bhagavan died in 1950, Sri Nannagaru never in fact actually met with Ramana, but took him as his Guru. Sri Nannagaru attributes his realisation to the grace of Arunachala-Ramana.

I expect to visit his Ashram tomorrow, so will report back with news then. In the meantime you may like to check out Swami's website at: www.srinannagaru.com

Ahhh he is SO entrancingly cute and sweet and soft-looking! Though I know through some of your stories that he can be quite strong to toughen up his babies!

You actually met him several times when you were living in Andhra Pradesh - so you probably know more about him than I.
