Miracles Do Happen
« on: December 18, 2008, 09:20:16 AM »
In the early days of the Asramam, an untouchable used to stand
near the well and accompany Bhagavan Ramana whenver he would
go up the Hills.  One day Bhagavan Ramana called him near and
said: Go on repating 'Siva, Siva'.  It was very unusual for an untouchable,
who never had even entered the Hall, to be called to receive this kind of
initiation.  He could never have secured it without Bhagavan Ramana's
infinite Grace.  After that, the man disappeared. 

Once a sannyasi came and stayed in the Asramam for three weeks.
On the last day, he came near Bhagavan and said: Swami!  I am
satisfied in every way with my stay in the Asramam.  Now I pray,
fill my heart.  Bhagavan Ramana got up and held the sannyasin's
hands.  They stood thus for a long time.  Then the sannyasi prostrated
before Bhagavan Ramana and said:  "Now I am blessed!"  With that
he departed.  Thus would Bhagavan give enlightenment with a word,
a look, a touch or in deep silence.
