Shankarashram I - Death


During his stay at Shirāli as the honoured guest of the Nāgarkattē family, Swami Shakarāshram's health failed rapidly. To the dismay of his devotees, his health took a turn for the worse and Swamiji became terminally ill.

"My children, the grace of Lord Bhavānishankara will always protect you. Follow all that has been taught without fear"
(-Translated from Konkani to Sanskrit).

With these words, Swami Shankarāshram died on the 6 day of the month of Ashwina in 1757. Swamiji's untimely death meant that he could not accept a shishya(disciple). This resulted in the community not having a guru to succeed Swami Shankarāshram. His samadhi is located in Shirali and is also called the Hodi Samādhi ('Big Samādhi' in Konkani)

Famous quotes containing the word death:

    The breath of an aristocrat is the death rattle of freedom.
    Georg Büchner (1813–1837)

    The techniques of opening conversation are universal. I knew long ago and rediscovered that the best way to attract attention, help, and conversation is to be lost. A man who seeing his mother starving to death on a path kicks her in the stomach to clear the way, will cheerfully devote several hours of his time giving wrong directions to a total stranger who claims to be lost.
    John Steinbeck (1902–1968)

    Judge Dolan: When a murderer is caught he must be tried, when he is convicted he must be sentenced, when he is sentenced to death he must be executed.
    Bruno Antony: Quite impersonal, isn’t it?
