Miracles Do Happen
« on: January 23, 2009, 09:53:49 AM »
Voltheim-Ostram was a  German Baron, who had read about
Theosophy and also a small pamphlet by Paul Brunton on Bhagavan
Ramana Maharshi.  He came to the Asrmam in 1935.

In the Hall, during a talk Bhagavan went into samadhi.  The
German was still occupied with writing down what the Maharshi
had previously said, when Bhagavan Ramana suddenly looked
at him.  The both looked into each other's eyes. The German could
not say how long.  He went over to an almost bodiless and equally
spaceless condition, in which even normal time lost its importance.
He had a physical feeling of widening and weightlessness as if
one would consciously observe one's own falling asleep or having
a dream!  This state, which developed further, was accompanied
by an increasing awareness, which is only to be described as  an
enlargement and an 'awakening' in an extraordinary stage of
consciousness, of a rare logical clarity of thought.. It was a feeling
of an unimaginable state of equilibrium of his whole being.

Voltheim-Ostrau was able to see the shining body of the Maharshi,
whenever he put himself in touch with Him, in meditation and this continued even after the Maharshi's Maha Nirvana!
