Miracles Do Happen
« on: December 28, 2008, 10:19:21 AM »
Balarama Reddiyar came to Bhagavan Ramana after spending several
months in Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry and after taking the written
permission from Aurobindo and the Mother, he came down to Tiruvannamalai.  He had high regard for Aurobindo's yoga marga, but
preferred the self enquiry, hence the reason for his coming to Tiruvannamalai.  In 1936, he went to the Hills and chose a steep path
to go to the summit.  After some distance, he got stuck on a huge rock.
On the one side there was a dangerous valley.  The wind was blowing
heavily.  His footwear was also slipping slowly.  He became afraid of the
consequences of a sure death. He closed his eyes and prayed to Bhagavan
Ramana, Aurobindo and the Mother.  After about ten minutes, he opened
his eyes and looked on his left.  There were some plants, which were
jutting out of the rock!  He held them in his hand tightly and crossed
over to a safe place quickly.  He did not reveal about the incident to anyone back in the Asramam.  He quietly sat down for his dinner and went to his
place.  He knew pretty well that Bhagavan Ramana had saved him from
such a dangerous situation!
