"One of us"

Major Chadwick (Sadhu Arunachala) came to Bhagavan in 1935 and stayed until Bhagavan's mahasamadhi in 1950.

On this day (April 17), in 1962, Sadhu Arunachala passed away.

“I felt the tremendous peace of his presence, his graciousness. It was not as though I were meeting him for the first time. It seemed that I had always known him, though I had not been conscious of it at the time. Now I know.” ~ Sadhu Arunachala

Sri Bhagavan has said, “Chadwick was with us before, he was one of us. He had some desire to be born in the West, and that he has now fulfilled.”

~ quotes from Bhagavan, A Pictorial Biography

(I could not find a photo of Sadhu Arunachala on the internet -- if anyone has one to post, please do!)
