Rama Nama – Experiences of Gandhiji  -by Manu


One should have Ramanama on one’s lips till one’s last breath but it should not be repeated parrot-like; it should spring from the heart as was the case with Hanuman. When Sitaji presented a pearl necklace to him he broke the pearls to see if the name of Rama was written in them. We need not care to find out whether the incident actually happened or not. We may not be able to make our bodies as strong as that of Hanuman but we can certainly make our souls as great. One can realize the devotion of Hanuman if one is intent on it. If one cannot reach that height it is enough if one makes a sincere attempt.  Has not Mother Gita taught us to make every effort and leave the result in the hands of God? We should try our very best to follow that teaching.


 “Now you have understood what my attitude is towards the sickness of anybody, be it you, me or any one else.” And that very day he wrote to an ailing sister, “There is only one panacea in the whole world and that is Ramanama. But His name could only prove effective if the rules pertaining to it are strictly adhered to. But who cares to do so?”


 Strangely enough the above incident occurred on the 30th January 1947, exactly a year before his death.


 That unshakable faith in Rama Nama remained with him till his last breath. I did not then imagine that on the same day a year later I should have the heart rending experience of hearing Rama, Ra….ma as the last audible words of the great departing soul. Mysterious indeed are the ways of the Lord!
