Papnasham (An Untold Story) – Part 3 (The Final & Special)

This is the final and special Edition of the Papanasam Article:

A bit more details about Guruji’s birth:

Guruji was born to Sri.Venkat Ratnam and Smt.Vishalakshi on May 13, 1956 in Papanasham,  Tamil Nadu, India. His parents named him Shankar since his birthday matched that of the 8th century CE Hindu saint, Adi Shankara. He was named on the 11th day of his birth, which was Ramanuja Jayanti, the day Ramanuja (another important theologian and Hindu philosopher) was born.

And of course most people know the famous Mein Tera significance to his birthday too!

And finally THE ROOM!!! This is the picture of the room where Guruji was delivered by our beloved Amma! This is where Guruji blessed the world with his first breath!!!!

More Guru Childhood Stories:

  • Little Guruji’s Enact:

As a child, Guruji would love to enact Buddha. So, he would wear an orange towel (Kashi Towels) which Amma used in her kitchen around his head and would wear wooden sandals to create that sound effect and would have His friends and Bhanu Didi follow Him and sing,”Buddham Sharnam Gachami”…

  • Little Guruji’s favourite Words:

Offering, Closing eyes and Smiling

  • The insisting Litte Guruji

Guruji would insist on offering everything to God first and then eat (even chocolates). “Imagine you have sweets in your hands and that too offer first to God..(it’s so irrestible 😉 and then have. Bhanu didi was so impatient, she would quietly keep it in her mouth. Guruji would make her open her mouth, remove the sweet,offer it first to God and then let her have :)

    Jgd dushyant ji! While we were in papanasam 4 to 5 years back we took a chance n with locals’ guidance found our way to Guruji’s house but we were not lucky enough to see His room n also upstairs but YES I did feel a pull to meditate in a room only to find out later that THAT IS THE ROOM WHERE HE WAS BORN…..full of vibration.Each one of us must visit His house atleast once
