T.M. Krishnaswami Aiyar, B.A., B.L., was Chief Justice of the former Travancore State (Kerala).
I first saw the slim figure of a yogi who seemed to be the flame of a candle. The candle has now grown into Sri Ramanasramam. The flame is still there as it was. The paradox is that the flame feeds the candle and not the candle the flame.
Bhagavan Ramana is a remarkable personality. He has now become an expanding atmosphere. The Ashram cannot interest those who have not learnt to seek the treasures of man’s inner consciousness, or to catch the message of silence. For him who yearns to look without, Bhagavan Ramana will show the world within.
Bhagavan Ramana has frequently told the seekers after truth that if one learns about oneself as every being the ‘I’ of itself, one knows oneself as well as the world. It must mean the illumination of the spirit and its upheaval.
The message of peace and love, of meditation and realisation, and of service and universalism has a great value in setting humanity on a higher plane. Sri Ramanasramam is an oasis in the desert of the modern world. It is the life-spring of love and life.
