“Vallalar Maraivu, siddiya maranama?” By Judge Balaramaiah

In a post from a while back on this site (link: https://www.vallalarspace.org/UnisoulUniverse/c/V000002447B)

it was explained that there has been some controversy over the attainment of deathlessness by Ramalinga Vallalar.

In the book titled "Vallalar Maraivu, siddiya Maranama?", judge Balaramaiah explained his doubts about Ramaling'a attainment, with citation from Maraimalai Adigal, a famous freedoms fighter and devotee of Vallalar.

Naturally, given that these two men were originally very close followers of Vallalar, it leads one to wonder why they were dubious about his attainment. I do not make this post because I wish to defame Vallalar in any way, I too am deeply inspired and moved by his teachings. 

But, having said that, I think it is very very important in the journey of sprituality to have an undying loyalty to the truth. I wish to ask the readers of this site whether any of you are familiar with this book by Balaramaiah, or this line of controversy, and whether any of you perhaps have a copy of the book. I think it is always best to let both sides explain their perspective and then to allow each individual to draw his or her own conclusions. 

and please keep in mind, these questions do not come from an atheistic doubting Tom -- but from a genuine devotee.

Dr Balaram is only a siddha doc not a yoga master nor a practitioner . He has no idea on thiruvadi sacred feet as propounded by vallalar to know the greatness of APJ . Neither he has knowledge on 8 *2 , sagaththalai , vegakkaal , pogaappunal etc to ascertain the attainment of triple deathless bodies by Vallalar -pl read the book APJ and Deathless bodies 2 vols by TR Tulasi Ram where in vision showed by Ramalingam swami himself as what happened to his body on 30.1.1874 - thats enough . Dr Balrams statements can be rubbished

Vallalars Grand finale – Part 3
Sri Gangadharan – Sri Aurobindo Ashram – A rare vision in 1978 of the dematerialisation of Swami Ramalingam’s Supramental deathless body after he locked himself in his room on 30.1.1874

A RARE VISION OF DEMATERIALISATION OF SWAMI RAMALINGAM’S SUPRAMENTAL DEATHLESS BODY
By Sri Gangadharan , Sri Aurobindo Ashram
It was by a rare virtue ( Punniya ) that on the first day of Tamil month Thai 14.1.78 , I had a continuous vision between 2 AM and 3 AM in my usual meditation in the night . The vision of dematerialisation of the physical body of Swami Ramalingam into and as the Truth Light of Supreme Grace which contains or possesses in itself supreme compassion and Bliss of grace
Though I have had occassions to ascend and remain for sometime in the Truth World of Grace Light wherefrom I could see the earth as a part of Universe , the said vision came to me when my consciousness was on the earth itself though aware of the truth world and beyond
To begin with , I sensed an effable silence and peace ( para shantha mauna ) prevailing everywhere and I heard continuously Para nada . The mysterious divine sound in that supreme silence and peace. Then the vision broke out.
A small village was seen in its simple and beautiful surroundings though not endowed with a rich beauty of nature. There was concrete presence of Supreme and Universal Divine with the beautiful Truth Light of Grace and fragrance , which enriched the place all the more and enraptured my heart with ever increasing aspiration for Grace . At the center of the village was seen a small house in its purity and peace . Sweet fragrance of Grace radiated everywhere from the house.
Vallalar ( Swami Ramalingam ) the great munificent was seen entering the house. His face was calm and peaceful . He was seen as the very embodiment of compassion and his body filled with the fire of Tapas of Truth Light of Consciousness as of the purity of the supreme divine ( suththa sivam ) . His body was radiating light of grace. Besides his body was of silken or light shining golden colour. He entered into the verandah and kindled the wick of the burning oil lamp and it began to burn more brightly. Then he stepped into his room and closed the doors and bolted inside.At that time there was concrete presence of Supreme and Universal divine in the room. The presence could be sensed physically and even by born blind. There was also silence and Peace and fragrance and Light of Grace due to its presence.
Vallalar sat on the white cloth spread on the low wooden plank and began to concentrate . In that poise he was seen as the mountain of Truth – knowledge with the Truth Light of Grace and Peace and fire of Tapas . He was verily a supreme form of the Divine . Flood of Light was radiating from this pure and luminous into all the directions
Supreme grace and supreme compassion and the light of Grace are expressive of the secret truth and they hold the key for transformation of physical body into deathless physical body of Grace in its eternal youthfulness . One has to live in the depth of ocean of blissful grace – light for getting transformed into the divine nature and as divinised body
The intensity of flood of light that radiated from his whole body was very powerful and one shall have the strength and capacity to bear it. My whole body vibrated with a joy and pleasantness because of vision of Light of his body.
After some time of concentration, he rose up and and saw the physical sky . Full moon was shedding its cool rays over the earth. A little distance away from the moon was seen a very bright and concentrated splendor of light. It appeared like a bright dazzling star of light. Swami poured his concentrated gaze at it for sometime . He became enraptured with blissful joy in the heart which radiated on his face. A little time after he again sat on the white seat of the plank and entered into deep concentration
Though Swami was inside the closed and bolted room he could see the whole Universe ( viswa prapancha ) with its tiers of many worlds of mind, life and physical including the physical earth and sky with its moon stars and clouds
When he was thus absorbed in deep concentration, an effulgent Truth Light of Grace broke out from his heart and with its unique Heat began to burn his radiant physical body very slowly as if at a snails speed and in an upward direction from heart towards head. The burning of body may be somewhat likened to that of an incense stick which however burns downwards by its inner heat of fire, forming ash covering but without the falling down of the ash form
When the upper part of his radiant body was burnt completely from heart to head , there was left in its place a form of pure white substance which also radiated its light of consciousness. The burnt part, showed all its features intact and clearly and even the burnt hair of his head was seen clearly as lumunous white hair. Then the Heat of pure Light of Grace descended to burn the lower part.
After the whole body was burnt, Swami was seen as a bodily form of pure white substance from head to foot radiating its light . Even blood had changed into a white luminous substance . The form white kept intact all diff kinds of cells of his body and all the distinctive features and formations of his interior and exterior body. His body didnt shrink after the burning.I saw no visible flame nor sensed its heat during the burning of his living body nor smoke nor any bad smell as of burnt tissues , nor heard any cracking noise as of burnt bones . But instead there was sweet fragrance since time his body began to burn it and it spread everywhere . I sensed in my heart an effable calmness and silence which gave me in turn a state of bliss.
Now a second stage of burning began, The unique Heat of Grace light began to burn slowly swamis luminous form of white substance from head to foot downwards. When his white substance form full of its radiating light was thus burnt completely , they became very fine sub atomic conscious particles which permeated and pervaded the entire universe and farther worlds of consciousness beyond. Fine white & conscious particles with its radiating light also entered into and got distributed everywhere in the earth and even in matter and inconscient. After the universal pervasive distribution of the particles they could be seen no more and disappeared from my sight . But now there pervaded everywhere sweet , soft and fine fragrance of camphor which gave my body a blissful sensation and enraptured my heart as well.
Then I had rare vision of swamis universal luminous golden form . As a matter of fact, the immensity of golden form contained with in it , the whole universe . This form too disappeared from my sight and was replaced by another vision in which I saw the Golden Light of truth knowledge and grace entering into all the directions more speedily thena the lightning.It permeated and pervaded the entire universe and farther pure worlds of consciousness. It entered into our earth and all its crores of physical form of beings and objects and in the apparently insensible ( jada ) and even in the dark realm of the vast inconscient. All the forms that were permeated by the Golden Light of truth changed into golden light of beings and objects. The golden light entered into my whole aathaara including physical body . My body felt in all the cells vibrations of ease and pleasantness.
Then I heard some words of Grace but they were indistinctly heard and could not be deciphered as I was absorbed in a rapture of bliss due to sublime vision and experiences . Thus the vision lasted for an hour and came to an end.
The visible physical light is the concrete symbol of vast truth light of Grace which is the source of all lights . Camphor is verily a solid form or symbol of that light . The Swamis soul is inseparable from the conscious white particles of substance which he has become and pervadingly distributed everywhere.. When supreme truth consciousness manifests in the physical world , it becomes the golden light of grace. The will of supreme divine in the vast truth light of grace shall be fulfilled on the earth. The Golden light of grace will purify and transform man and physical body too will become deathless physical truth body and the sanmarga of truth, purity and goodness shall prevail on the earth.As Anma ( soul ) realises the pure spirit the body too shall realise its truth as the true body of the spirit
