Miracles Do Happen
« on: January 24, 2009, 10:02:14 AM »
Thippirajapuram Balasubramanian hails from that village near
Thanjavur.  His whole family was devoted to Bhagavan Ramana.
In the year 1934, when Balasubramanian was only six years old,
he went to Bhagavan Ramana with his father and met Him.  As
a young boy he asked Bhagavan Ramana: "Bhagavan!  You should
grant me the boon that I should not die and get whatever I want.
Also kindly tell me whether You are an incarnation of Dakshinamoorthy or Subrahmanya!"  Bhagavan Ramana caught hold of his hand and walked with him, and smilingly said: "All this,
you will learn from your father by and by."  Then He turned to Balu's
father and said: "Your son is very smart." Further he had a doubt about the existence of heaven and hell but was too shy to ask Bhagavan about this. To his suprise, Bhagavan Ramana answered
the same question, put forth to Him, by another devotee. He said:
"Whether there is a hell or a heaven, it is you who are going to experience it.  Find out, who that experiences heaven or hell."

Balasubramanian's father had a photograph taken with Bhagavan
Ramana, along with his family.  Again, once Balu's sister and aunt went for giripradakshina , and after sometime, finding that they were alone, they got frightened.  Suddenly, someone came up and accompanied them till they completed the circumambulation and reached the town. When they turned to thank the companion, he
had disappeared!
