Miracles Do Happen
« on: January 04, 2009, 09:49:20 AM »
Kavyakanta Ganapati Sastri went to Tiruvotriyur, a small town near
Chennai, (today it is part of Chennai Metropolis) to pray to Sri
Tripura Sundari.  He went there also to a small Ganapati temple, and
sang one of the verses of Uma Sahasram.  A sincere Sanskrit student
was observing this and then went to Ganapati Sastri and prostrated
to him.  The boy also asked Sastri to take him as his disciple!  The
student is none other than the famous Kapali Sastri, who wrote Sri
Ramana Gita Bhashya and Sad Darsana Bhashya!

Ganapati Sastri was doing penance in the Ganapati temple for 18 days.
On the afternoon of the eighteenth day, he became quite tired and
could not even sit on the floor.  He therefore lied down and was doing
mediation in savasana.  He felt that if Bhagavan Ramana could be beside
him, if would be so nice and comforting.  Suddenly, Bhagavan Ramana
appeared before him.  He held His one hand on Ganapati Sastri's head
and another hand on his Heart.  Ganapati Sastri could feel the divine
waves of Grace spreading all over his body.  He wanted to hold Bhagavan's
feet and do pranams.  But he could not do so for some time.  After sometime, he got up and looked for Bhagavan Ramana.  Oh, Bhagavan
Ramana was not to be seen!  Ganapati Sastri, thanked Bhagavan Ramana
profusely and pursued his work vigorously.

Bhagavan Ramana Himself has confirmed this trip to Tiruvotriyur in His
subtle body to help Ganapati Sastri.
