Miracles Do Happen
« on: December 27, 2008, 09:40:01 AM »
Once Bhagavan Ramana, Mastan Swami, Perumal Swami, Akhilandamma
and a few others had planned to go to the summit of the Hills.  Desur
Akhilandamma had brought on that morning food as bhiksha to be
served to Bhagavan Ramana.  After climbing 3/4th of the distance,
when they had come to Seven Springs, Bhagavan, Perumal Swami,
Mastan Swami decided to stay back at the Seven Springs.  Akhilandamma
left the bhiksha food there, and proceeded to the summit.  While coming
back, she lost her way and was in total confusion and fear as to how
to reach the Seven Springs.  Bhiksha food was also at Seven Springs
and Bhagavan Ramana and others had to be served.  In a few moment,
she heard some voices calling Desuramma, Desuramma...!  Bhagavan
Ramana had asked a few persons to caller her name, since He had
doubt that Akhilandamma had lost her way.  On hearing the sounds,
and guessing the correct route down to Seven Springs, Akhilandamma
reached Seven Springs safely and served food for all the persons!
Desuramma was wondering for a long time,   about the sounds of her name, that made her to find the way and this was arranged by Bhagavan Ramana, sitting at the Seven Springs, and knowing fully that Desuramma
had trouble in finding her way down to the Seven Springs!
