Miracles Do Happen
« on: January 14, 2009, 11:01:17 AM »
Sri Sundaram Arya (later Sadhu Trivenigiri Swami) was one of the early
devotees of Bhagavan Ramana.  He was a great Skanda Bhakta. Once
when he was in the shrine of Skanda in Tiruchendur, he prayed intently
to Him to give him spiritual guidance.  He immediately heard the following
words from the sanctum sanctoru.  " Regard all women as Valli Herself,
(the consort of Skanda). Regard all women as your Mother."  Further,
he hear: "Here I am a God who does not speak. Go to Tiruvannamalai.
There I am talking, walking God!"

He came back home and soon a friend of Sundaram gave him Tamil biography of Bhagavan Ramana, written by Suddhanta Bharati, titled
Sri Ramana Vijayam.  He read with immense devotion and was waiting
for an opportunity to go to Tiruvannamalai.  His mother who was quite
sick passed away soon. Before her death, she had told Sundaram:  "I see the Lord of the Hill before me.  He points out you and wants you to be handed over to Him. He says you are His servant."

Sundaram came to Bhagavan Ramana in 1933.  He took sannyasa in the same year.  Bhagavan Ramana explained to him, the Hrudya Vidya.  He
also told him to go to Kavyakanta Ganapati Sastri for further details.

He assisted the Asramam for a number of years in kitchen work and he had several meaningul words from Bhagavan Ramana's lips. He says
that His each talk to him was an upadesa.   He also took up giripradakshina for 48 days continuously.
