One hundred years back, Alagammal climbed the sacred Arunachal Hill yet one more time in order to stay near her son. What had begun as an ageing parent’s wish to live with her child, gradually became the surrender of a sadhika to her sadguru, Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi.
In this book, the story of Alagammal’s spiritual journey has been told for the first time in the form of a narrative, a katha. The facts and dates are historical. The portrayal of her life’s journey is the humble attempt of the author to depict the pain and struggle of a young mother and widow whose destiny it was to lose much on the human level and yet to gain the ultimate release from the cycle of birth and death at the end of her earthly existence. This is the story of the journey of a soul from individual to universal motherhood.
Sri Ramanasramam is very happy to commemorate this historical event with the publication of Alagammal’s Journey, A Sadhana Katha.
