Miracles Do Happen
« on: December 29, 2008, 10:56:00 AM »
Once the Secretary of the Governor of Pondicherry, came to see
Bhagavan Ramana, along with some of his office staff. He had come
to the Asramam, with a long list of questions in French.  He submitted
the questions to Bhagavan Ramana and sat near Him.  Since the questions
were in French, Bhagavan asked Balarama Reddiyar to go through them.
Since those were written in tough pedantic French  Balarama Reddiyar
found them difficult to translate them into Tamil and tell Bhagavan.  He
said:  Bhagavan!  These questions are in tough language.  Bhagavan
then said:  Do not bother, tell me the purport and that is adequate.
Then Balarama Reddiyar narrated those questions and added:  He
wants the answer experientially and not merely as spoken words.

Bhagavan Ramana sat quiet for a moment.  Then He looked intently at
the questioner for about thirty seconds!  The man's body shook vigorously.
Then the body rocked.  He then said in a trembling voice: "O Bhagavan.
I do not want.  Not now.  Please, Bhagavan, not now!"

Balarama Reddiyar also stood speechlessly!
