Miracles Do Happen
« on: January 13, 2009, 08:31:05 AM »
Sri M.G. Shankmukham, was from a family of great Siva devotees
and he was initiated into Siva pooja right from his seventh year.
His father was a police officer in Tiruchengode.  Shanmukham grew
up with interest in religion and philosophy and he was studying in
college in Tiruchengode.  His father was transferred to Tiruvannamalai
and he rushed to Tiruvannamalai to see Bhagavan Ramana when He
was in the Hills.  His father had already told Shanmukham about Bhagavan Ramana. 

Shanmukham had a fracture earlier on his right hand elbow and his
hand become crooked after surgery.  In order to hide that, he used
to wear full sleeves always. The pain was still there on his hand.
When he went to meet Bhagavan Ramana, He asked as a first question,
"How is your hand?"  Shanmukham was awestruck and knew immediately that Bhagavan Ramana was a great Jnani, who knows everything!

Later, after a couple of years, his father was transferred to Vellore.
The entire family including Shanmukham did not want to move out
of Tiruvannamalai.  Shanmukhma went to Bhagavan Ramana and told
Him  about his father's transfer and the need to leave Tiruvannamalai
shortly.  Bhagavan Ramana looked at him and smiled.  He did not say anything.  Within a couple of days, his father's transfer was cancelled and his father was continuing to work in Tiruvannamalai for more years!
