Ramalinga Swami

Ramalinga Swami (Vallalar) was a great Siddha from Tamil Nadu who lived in the 1800’s. He attained all the siddhis from what he called the Grace Light. His body did not cast a shadow and it was impossible to photograph him. At the age of 50, he announced to his followers that he was going to leave. He went in to his room and asked then to lock the door. After some time, they saw a flash of purple light under the door, opened the door and he had vanished.

SABHAI VILLAMBARAM
SWAMI RAMALINGAM’S LAST WRITTEN MESSAGE ON 30-1-1874;
RETIREMENT INTO SECLUSION FOR DISAPPEARANCE.

“Tiru Cit Ambalam (with the blessings of the Divine World of Truth-Consciousness). O my friends who have got human embodiment rare to get in this world!

I am enraptured by a Truth-Consciousness and by It I feel and become conscious, from now onwards, of rare and wonderful experiences, visions, inspirations of hearing, actions, qualities and intuitions of knowledge which were never before experienced, seen, heard, done, attained and known, ever since the time I began to grow in maturity of knowledge.

I inform you of this because I have a great and rightful will of Desire which rise and overflows from within my being towards you as a result of the soul’s inherent right of oneness with all other souls which is the aim of my Path, the Suddha Sanmarga – the will of desire in me that all of you should realize the joy of these experiences.

The Supreme Divine is the One, the infinite and eternal Existence who is all-pervasive within and without as the pure Truth-Consciousness of the entire integral (supramental) world of all-pervasive equal self-extension (Poorna podu veli) i.e., at the summit supermind, who is realized by Truth-Knowledge and who manifests Himself according to all the ways in which the seekers seek to know, who is the supreme and incomparable Lord of Vast Grace-Light, the Self-Existence who is self-aware conscious Being, the Self-Conscient who is the self-manifesting consciousness-Force of the self-aware Being, the integral Being of perfect Bliss who is without division and who by His Force of Grace or Grace-Shakti performs in grace the great universal functions such as creation, maintenance, removal of impurities (i.e., by destruction), bringing about conditions or processes of purity (i.e., by through involution) and growth of clarified consciousness (i.e., by evolution) in respect of all the worlds and planes, all states and goals, all gods and goddesses, all inspired sciences and arts kala, all things and objects, all the powers and principles of existences, all beings, all actions, all desires of will, all knowledge, all results, all experiences and all other things all of which he has become by and through the Grace-Shakti and who is the universal All-existence but yet transcending it (i.e., the Transcendental and Universal Divine) and who is all-compassionate, all-powerful and all-possessing.
Jeevas or embodied ignorant beings of this world instead of living the great and deathless, perfect and integral Truth-life of Bliss by knowing and loving the One supreme Divine Being and by receiving His Grace, are resorting to the many different religions, philosophies and other ways of discipline under manifoldly various notions and aims (in mind), and becoming subjected to series of births and births over long generations of time and equally to a series of deaths and deaths which occur quickly to them under variously different conditions of grief, sufferings and dangers and thus wasting their life even without getting a little of consciousness.

To avoid in future the waste of life of these beings by quick deaths (i.e., indicating a quicker and more continuous evolution of men with a prolonged life over coming the impediments of quick deaths), the supreme Divine by His Will and sanction has made us found here a Jnana Sabha (i.e., Satya Jnana Sabha, the Shrine or Home of Truth-Consciousness) to manifest the Truth which is the basis of the Suddha Sanmarga movement so that they can live with true knowledge, true love, true compassion and with such good qualities and actions (implying a greater and higher evolution of men by the power of Light of Truth) and follow the true path of Suddha Sanmarga which is the real truth and basis behind all religions, philosophies and ways of disciplines, for realizing the great life of happiness and Bliss; And the supreme Divine who NOW IS CONCRETELY PRESENT HERE AS THE GOD OF VAST GRACE-LIGHT (i.e., referring to it as his personal experience at the time on that day and at his place including the place of the shrine at Vadalur where the shrine of Satya Jnana Sabha was built and opened in 1872 in honour of the coming of the Divine to the earth) and has given the assurance of His Will that FROM NOW ONWARDS up to illimitable time, He will stay and perform by play of manifestation, the innumerable siddhis or divine miracles of perfection (i.e., more indicative of a greater terrestrial evolution due to the divine manifestation).

SWAMI RAMALINGAM’S LAST SPOKEN MESSAGES ON JANUARY 30, 1874- BEFORE DEMATERIALISING HIS SUPRAMENTAL PHYSICAL DEATHLESS BODY

According to the message on the eve of closing the doors of his house the Swami has informed thus:

“SO FAR I HAD BEEN PERSONALLY GUIDING YOU BY WORDS; NONE HAS REACHED OR RISEN UP TO THE CONDITIONS OF PURITY AS ADVISED BY ME. NONE HAS COME TO RECEIVE FROM ME. I HAD KEPT THE DOORS OPEN BUT NONE HAS COME TO RECEIVE FROM ME. I AM CLOSING IT. BUT I SHALL MOLD YOU OR SHAPE YOU (i.e. by purification) AND IF THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE ( i.e., if you resist it) I WILL MOLD YOU EVEN IN A COOKING POT (i.e. mold disciples and change them into conditions of purity if necessary by giving them pressure of circumstances or pressure on their conciousness). I AM NOW IN THIS BODY (i.e., in a deathless physical body). IN THE FUTURE I SHALL ENTER INTO ALL THE BODIES (i.e., all physical bodies). I SHALL BE UNIVERSALLY PRESENT (i.e., even after the intended dematerialisation of the body) AND WHEREVER YOU GO I SHALL BE THERE TO MEND OR PURIFY YOU. DO NOT FEAR”
– (Vide Tiruvottiyur Ramalingam Swami Matalayam Tiru Arutpa edition 1964-p.84)

In a last spoken message on 30-1-1874 i.e., the day of his retirement into seclusion, the Swami is said to have informed as follows:

“I KEPT THE DOORS OPEN BUT NONE CAME TO RECEIVE FROM ME. I AM CLOSING THE DOORS NOW. TO RECEIVE THE DIVINE GRACE, WORSHIP THE DIVINE WITH FEELINGS OF COMPASSION AND REMEMBER HIM WHO IS IN THIS LAMP OF LIGHT (i.e., the light which the swami had kept outside his room since 14-11-1873).

FOR AN HOUR ( two and half ghatikas) I WILL NOT BE SEEN TO YOUR EYES. BUT I WOULD BE UNIVERSALLY PRESENT IN THIS WORLD AND IN ALL OTHER WORLDS.

THEN, WHEN THE GOD OF VAST GRACE-LIGHT COMES (i.e., manifests himself Universally), I SHALL COME IN THIS FORM OF BODY (i.e., in the triple perfect bodies of Suddha deha, Pranava deha and Jnana deha) AND PERFORM MANY MIRACLES.

I SHALL GOVERN WITH THE SCEPTRE OF THE DIVINE GRACE AND I SHALL GIVE TO THOSE WHO HAVE THE INNER PREPARATION THE BOON OF DEATHLESSNESS OF BODY AND TO OTHERS CONDITIONS OF PURITY.

IF WHEN THE DOOR REMAINS CLOSED, GOVERNMENT SERVANTS COME AND ORDER IT TO BE OPENED, GOD WILL PROTECT BY HIS GRACE”

– (Vide Kandasamy pillai Edition of the Swami’s works 1924-p.63).
