Miracles do happen
« on: November 16, 2008, 10:19:44 AM »
When Bhagavan Ramana was in the Hills, there was during some
time acute water shortage.  Tiruvannamalai is itself a hot town,
with some rains during two months that is October and November
and there would be water shortage in many years.  Since there
was such a shortage, Bhagavan Ramana and Pazhaniswami and
others had to go far away for bath and natural calls and it was
quite taxing.  When Pazhaniswami and others were sulking, Bhagavan
Ramana kept quiet as usual.  Suddenly, in the afternoon, there was
thunder and lightning and rains poured for hours.  The entire area
around Virpakshi Cave was flooded.  Rocks and boulders rolled
down from their places.  Suddenly after the rains, a stream appeared
near Virupakshi Cave and water facility became plenty after that!
Everyone with Bhagavan Ramana became quite happy. 

Even today Tiruvannamalai has got water problem and many wells
and tanks dry up often.  But the two large wells in Sri Ramanasramam,
are always perennial, with plenty of water!  The Ramana Tirtham and
Azhagamma Tirtham, are these two wells.  The first one is to the left
of Ramanesvsara Mahalingam Temple and another is to the right of
Matrubhutesvarar Temple.

This Hills which is only heat and effulgence, is also the hills of
waterfalls and streams.  This idea has been brought about by
Bhagavan Ramana in His Arunachala Padigam, (actually eleven
and not ten verses on Arunachala) Verse 1, starting,

Karunaiyal Ennai Anda Nee Enakku Katchi Thangarulilai Enral....

(Source:  Arunachala's Ramana, Boundless Ocean of Grace, Volume 1,
Sri Ramansramam, Tiruvannamalai.)
Arunachala Siva.

Dear Subramanian,
                         Once a devotee wanted to construct small building in the present Andhrasramam site and asked permission of Bhagawan.
Bhagawan asked about water facility and the devotee said he has no idea about it.Then Bhagawan personally inspected the site and asked for
site plan.In the site plan Bhagawan marked a small dot with pencil and told the devotee to dig a well for water there at that spot.To the surprise of the devotee water
is found at a very superficial level and the speciality of the well is that even if all wells in Tiruvannamalai are dried up this well is always full of water
and people from very long distance even now come here to fetch water from.As you say miracles do happen.

Dear Dr. Raju,

I am happy to learn about this incident, which is a news for me.
Bhagavan Ramana is not only a water diviner but also the diviner
of the Self within us!

Arunachala Siva.
