Miracles Do Happen

G. Ramaswami Pillai says:

After coming to Bhagavan Ramana, I never missed the Mahadeepam
(lighting of the Beacon on top of Arunachala), even once.  Once in
1930s, I was held up in Chidambaram just before Mahadeepam. I
tried to reach Tiruvannamalai either by train or by bus, but owning to heavy rains and floods, none of them were being run.  My anxiety to reach Arunachala was such that I decided to walk the whole distance.  But lo, when I cam to a bridge over a river on the way,
I found it had been washed away.

I returned disappointed and spent the night cyring.  Then I had a vivid vision, which was definitely not a dream, for I had not slept.
I saw the Holy Hill clearly and the bright tongues of flame leaping up from the kindled beacon.  I was thrilled. It was the very night of
Mahadeepam. Arunachala Ramana had showered His grace on His
devotee who was miles away from Arunachala at the time!  Such is the glory of Arunachala Ramana!
