Miracles Do Happen
« on: January 21, 2009, 12:42:51 PM »
One, Sadhuram took Swami Ramadas for the darshan of Bhagavan
Ramana Maharshi, in Tiruvannamalai.  He found Bhagavan Ramana as a calm youth, and in his large eyes, a passionless look of tenderness which cast a spell of peace and joy on all those who came to him. Swami Ramadas was also overjoyed that that Bhagavan knew English.  He addressed Him thus: "Maharaj, here stands before Thee a humble slave.  Have pity on him. His only prayers to Thee is to give him Thy blessing."

Bhagavan Ramana turned His beautiful eyes towards Ramadas and looked intently for a few minutes into his eyes, as though he was pouring into Ramadas his blessing through those orbs, then shook His head to indicate that He had blesssed him.  A thrill of inexpressible joy coursed through Ramadas, his whole body quivering like a leaf in the breeze.

Ramadas then chose one of the caves in the Hills and meditated on Sri Rama for about a month.  The bliss and joy came to be permenent, like a torrent rushing downhill till it finds the placid level of a limpid, purling stream.

Swami Ramadas wrote in Vision magazine later:  It is the Maharshi who made the awakening permanent in Ramadas.
