Miracles Do Happen
« on: December 15, 2008, 11:04:31 AM »
Sampoornammal, hailed from a village very near to Tiruchuzhi.  She
became a widow, very early in life and she was living in sorrow and
misery.  She came to Tiruvannamalai, offered to cook in the Asram,
when the regular kitchen assistant was away, and thus she became
a regular kitchen assistant.  Bhagavan Ramana had praised her many
times saying that her cooking was like His Mother's!

Once she and another lady by name Subbalakshmiamma, went well
before day break to do giri pradakshina.  They had to pass through
a jungle and they became afraid due to darkness and snakes and
panthers.  They soon saw strange blue light in front of them. The led
them in the Hills, upto day break and suddenly disappeared!

Another day, they noticed a man walking behind them.  They stopped to
give way to him, but he too stopped.  When they proceeded further,
he followed!  They were alarmed and were chanting, Arunachala!
Arunachala!  The man said suddenly:  Yes, Arunachala is our only
refuge.  Keep your mind always on him constantly.   It is His light
that fills all space!  The women were wonderstruck and they thought
that since they had been talking about worldly matters, it was a
reminder of Bhagavan Ramana not to talk such uselsss things but
to think of Arunachala! After a few minutes, when they looked back,
the man was not there!
