The 108 Names of Sri Bhagavan (Ramana Ashtothara 11-14) Original Sanskrit by Sri Viswanatha Swami and English Translation & Commentary by Professor K. Swaminathan

11.  Kamaniya sucharitrah: Charming person of excellent behaviour.

[As a child, comely to behold, bright-eyed, sweet of speech and ever smiling, Bhagavan was a great favourite of the whole neighbourhood].

Om Kamaniya sucharitraya namah.

12.    Sahayamba sahayavan: One who enjoyed the help of Mother divine, the helper of all.

[Sahayamba is the name of the goddess of Tiruchuzhi. Once as a child Bhagavan left his house in a huff and ran off to the temple opposite and sat in front of the Mother’s image. In a moment he was not only calmed but felt a thrill of joy profound].

Om Sahayamba sahayavate namah.

13.  Sonachala mahálina manasah: One whose mind was merged in the effulgence of Arunachala.

[From childhood Bhagavan was haunted by the name, the light, the glory of Arunachala].

Om Sonachala mahálina manasaya namah.

14.     Swarnahastakah: Gold-handed.

[Dextrous in deed, victorious in games, lucky in every task he undertook, Bhagavan turned whatever he touched into the gold of Awareness and Bliss. Compare the epithet Hiranyabahu for Siva.

Om Svarnahastakaya namah.
