Miracles Do Happen
« on: December 09, 2008, 10:00:04 AM »
T.K. Sundaresa Iyer, in May 1933, on his 36th birthday, after bath
and usual prayers, sat in Bhagavan Ramana's presence in a pensive
mood, thinking within himself that he had not experience of the Real
as yet and prayed to Bhagavan Ramana that he should have on that
special day the touch of His Grace.  Handing over a slip of paper a Tamil
song where in he had mentioned these thoughts, to Bhagavan Ramana,
he prostrated before Him. 

Bhagavan Ramana bade him to sit down and gazed steadily at him.
All of a sudden, Iyer lost his body-consciousness and was absorbed
in Maharshi.  He was turned inward, and the voice of Bhagavan bade
him see whatever he had desired.  He felt that he could have the darshan
of Rama, his life would have been fruitful.  He had immediately had
darshan of Rama, with Sita, Lakshmana, Bharata, Satrughna and Hanuman!  The ecstazy of the vision was beyond description!  He
simply sat on, without knowing that Bhagavan Ramana was gazing at
him.  Two hours might have passed in pin drop silence, lost in vision,
Sundaresa Iyer continued to sit, till the vision vanished.  He prostrated
at the feet of Bhagavan Ramana, with tears of ecstazy in his eyes and
his hairs stood on end.  To Bhagavan Ramana's enquiry, he replied
that he had vision of Sri Rama!

Bhagavan Ramana then asked him to fetch a book of Sri Dakshinamoorthy Ashtottaram.  He showed him the fifth name from the last, which said:
Om Yogi Pattarabhiramaya Namaha.  Bhagavan said:  Rama is Dakshinamoorthy and Dakshinamoorthy is Rama.  He continued:
You, know where Ayodhya is?  It is in the Sun, according to Vedas.
Arunachala is the Sun, Ashtachakrapuri, with eight corners and
is also navadvara devanam Purayodhya, with nine gates, (Ayodhya is).
Lord Arunachala is Rama as well as Dakshinamoorthy.  One need not
go the Sun to see Ayodhya or Rama, it is here and now!
