The Grace of the Guru
« on: October 23, 2008, 05:32:23 PM »
Suri Nagamma's sister in law, was a very weak lady and several
times, when she wanted to do circumambulation of the Hills, Suri
Nagamma advised her against it.  In 1949, once when she had come
to Tiruvannamalai, she was very much interested to complete it and
even her husband (Suri Nagamma's brother) did not object to that.

That time, Suri Nagamma did not accompany them and the lady
went with some other people, with a car following for her help.
Bhagavan was of course telling Suri Nagamma in the Old Hall:
"They must have gone to Gautama Asrama. They must have
reached that place.  They must have reached this place."  Around
10 am, everyone including the lady retruned safe.  Suri Nagamma
was greatly relieved.

In the evening, Visvanatha Swami came to Suri Nagamma and told
her:  Your sister in law has not only gone for circumambulation but
also visited Skandasramam.  How true it is when they have said:
"Mookam karothi vachalam, bungkum langyathe girim.."* 

"With Guru's Grace, even a dumb shall speak and a lame shall climb
the mountain!  These words have been rendered true today in
Bhagavan's Presence!" 

* Srimad Bhagavatam
