Miracles Do Happen
« on: December 10, 2008, 10:24:57 AM »
Sri Ramana Padananda, was a broker who was travelling all over India.
He came to know of Bhagavan Ramana, when he was in Kashmir. 
He came to see Bhagavan Ramana, when he was in Madras, in January
1928.  Bhagavan Ramana's mighty impersonality attracted him very much
and he started seeing Him again and again, more frequently.  He was
the one who later went to Malaya, Ceylong, Burma and other foreign
countries and spread Bhagavan's name, through bhajans, discourses,
processions etc., Wherever he went, he installed Bhagavan Ramana's

Once, he was in Gokarnam, and he was trying to meditate in a small
Siva temple.  He could not concentrate and he became frustrated. 
He was pursuing the enquriy Who am I? and suddenly he felt that his
body became exactly like that of Bhagavan Ramana, as it appears in
the photograph in the book Self Realization, of B.V. Narasimha Swami!
He fell into a trance and did not know how long he had remained in that
exalted state!  When he regained consciousness, he wrote to Bhagavan
Ramana.  He then immediately proceeded to Tiruvannamalai.  Bhagavan
Ramana asked:  Two days hence is Sivarathri.  You could have spent the
time in Gokarnam.  How come you are here?"  He replied:  Bhagavan
Ramana is Siva.  I have therefore come for your Darshan!"

He is the person who obtained a specially made easy chair for Bhagavan
Ramana, with a foot rest facility, so that He could sit on that and watch
the Hills from the Asram grounds during Deepam festival!
