Miracles Do Happen
« on: January 22, 2009, 09:52:20 AM »
In February 1936, Mr. S.S. Cohan arrived at Sri Ramanasramam.
He was invited by one of the inmates and he went to the Hall.  He
was quite nervous and he could not even untie his shoe laces properly that he tore them.  When someone asked him, whether he had brought any fruits to Bhagavan Ramana, he suddenly remembered about them, but could not locate the keys of his suitcases!  He was ushered into the dining hall, where he could sit near Bhagavan Ramana and Bhagavan was looking at him!  In fact
He waited till he consumed half an iddli.  Then Cohen got a room and he placed his luggages there.  Still the keys were missing and he could not change his dress and he could not get the fruits for Bhagavan!  He rushed back to the Hall  and sat before Bhagavan in a dazed condition.  Joy and Peace suffused his being!  He had a delightful sense of purity at the mere proximity of Bhagavan Ramana.

With in a few minutes, keys just fell on his lap.  He was astounded.
The attendant told him, that he rushed to the station, thinking Cohen might have left the keys in the station.  There the station master gave the keys saying that after the train had stopped, and when a new passenger got in, he found the keys on the berth, got down hurriedly from the train to hand over the keys to the station master!
The station master in turn, trusting that the keys belonged to some foreigner who had just then alighted, was waiting for someone who could come and claim it.  The attendant took the keys and had given to Cohen!

Cohen believed that the series of miracles that happened within a period of ninety minutes, was due to the entrancing personality of
Bhagavan Ramana!
