Title: Miracles Do Happen
Post by: Subramanian.R on January 27, 2009, 09:57:43 AM
Mr. M.L. Bhatt was a brahmin by birth but had no leanings towards
spritual side.  In Bombay, in the year 1947, he happened to attend the Golden Jubilee Celebrations of Bhagavan Ramana.  People were
talking abot the Madrasi God Ramana!  The word Ramana got planted in him somewhere there and then and grew within him.  In 1953,
he visited Ahmedabad and there in his friend's office, he saw a small exhibition of religious books. There he saw six small books on Bhagavan Ramana.  He purchased all of them and read it over and over again.  He felt an electric charge developing within him. He purchased further books in Delhi regarding Ramana.  He loved reading the books to his friend for hours. 

He decided to fix his faith totally on Bhagavan Ramana and he felt His Presence several times in the next few years and once he wrote a poem immediately.  At the age of 47, he resigned his job owing to some misunderstanding.  He did not try for a fresh job and trusting that Bhagavan Ramana would help him in finding a job within 30 days, he simply continued the mental remembrance of Him everyday and kept quiet.  On the 30th day, he was offered a better job by someone who came to his house.  He simply thanked the Master and reinforced his faith on Him!
