Miracles do happen
« on: November 07, 2008, 11:36:20 AM »
The days of miracles are not yet over.  Miracles do happen. 
Several miracles which do happen even today, to the devotees
who have surrendered to Bhagavan Ramana, have been narrated
by T.R. Natarjan, in his book, "Continuing Miracles" published by
Sri Ramana Maharshi Centre for Learning, Bangalore.  Miracles did
happen during Bhagavan Ramana's days in His body in Tiruvannamalai
also.  On such miracles, Bhagavan Ramana did adopt one of the
following stances:

1. Miracles are done by Arunachala, the Siva.

2. He did not own up any miracles.

3. His Grace is ever flowing.

4. Each devotee should be a fit vessel  to take that Grace.

5. He does not know anything!

Devaraja Mudaliar quotes two such miracles, about which he knew
very well or he was the first hand witness to such events.  The
first is the case of Jagadeesvara Sastri, a Sanskrit scholar and a
great devotee of Bhagavan.  He became seriously ill and the doctors
had lost hope.  He came to Bhagafvan and chanted his Sanskrit
slokas where in he said:  "I cannot accept your theory that Prarabdha
must be experienced.  You should intervene and cancel my Prarabdha."
So saying, he stayed with Bhagavan Ramana without leaving the
Asram.  He was miraculously cured.  Another instance is that of
Ranga Iyer, a class mate of Bhagavan Ramana.  On being advised
by someone that his astrological indications foretell some serious periods, he chose to stay with Bhagavan Ramana,  after telling Him about that.
Bhagavan Ramana heard that and said, "All right, you stay with me."
He took care of him meticulously.  Even when Ranga Iyer had to go
to the town for some work or to the Railway Station to see off someone,  Bhagavan Ramana had told him not to remain outside for long and to
come to the Asram before nightfall.  Ranga Iyer did accordingly and
he took leave of Bhagavan Ramana only after that 'period' was over!
