Miracles Do Happen
« on: November 19, 2008, 01:36:32 PM »
Once, one Ramaswami Pillai, who was reading in Tiruvannamalai,
who was spiritual by nature, was going to Bhagavan Ramana often
in the Hills and Bhagavan Ramana by His 'looks' was always flowing
His grace upon him.  Later he went to Madras for college studies,
but was visiting Bhagavan Ramana whenever he was in Tiruvannamalai.
Once he went at the night and Bhagavan Ramana was alone with a
few devotees. Ramaswami Pillai chanted Sri Arunachala Akshara Mana
Malai.  It was around 8 pm and Pillai had to take leave.  At that time,
rains started pouring.  Bhagavan Ramana asked him, whether he should
eat something.  He added that they do not eat at night, so Pillai also
had to fast, since there is nothing at the cave to eat.  Suddenly Ramanatha
Brahmachari came with some sweet pongal and half a coconut.  Bhagavan
said: Ramanatha, boil some water and pour the sweet pongal and coconut
descicated, and we shall make a sweet gruel and drink by sharing.  Pillai
was quite happy.  Again around 9 pm, two students came in the torrential
rain.  They were from Coimbatore.  They said that they have come to see
Him, on their way back to Coimbatore after the educational tour.  They
had brought a large packet of sweet candies and plenty of plantains!
Bhagavan said:  "O we have sweet candies and plantains too.  Mix
these also in the gruel and serve.  Pillai and others had a sumptuous
supper!  Bhavgvan Ramana said:  "O Pillai, I was fasting for the last
364 days without eating at night. In your presence, I am breaking the
night time fasting tonight!"  He also took the gruel and became quite
pleased with the developements.  Pillai became doubly happy since
he was responsible for Bhagavan Ramana's gruelling one session
for 1 year, being broken at that night!

Arunachala Siva.
