Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi said:
"They say that I am dying, but i am not going away. Where could i go? I am here."1
When his devotees complained that he was abandoning them, he replied:
"You attach too much importance to the body"2
"The Guru is not in the physical form. So contact will remain even after his physical form vanishes."3
Sri Bhagavan declared that one who has obtained the grace of Guru would never be abandoned.
