Miracles Do Happen
« on: January 30, 2009, 10:32:52 AM »
Vaikunta Vasan, came to Bhagavan Ramana, in 1940, just a few
days before his wedding!  He did several oddjobs and was also
one of the assistants in construction work.  Pleased with his work,
Sarvadikari posted him to attend on Bhagavan in the Hall.  Even
though he was in the Hall and was observing many talking to
Bhagavan Ramana, he talked to him, on his own accord, only once.
One day, he asked Bhagavan: "How is the mind to be subdued?"
Bhagavan Ramana graciously replied: "Look within where the
mind is!"

After that there was no need for him to think of anything else.
Bhagavan was God for him.

Later, one day, when it was about 9 O' clock at night, when
Bhagavan walked towards the Hill, a little beyond the Asramam
boundary, he went along with Him.  There was a sand between
Bhagavan and him, who had gone further up in order to ease
Himself.  Then, Vaikunta Vasan suddenly heard the sound of wooden sandals moving nearer and nearer towards them, and passing on!
There was no one to be seen, despite the sound made by the wooden sandals.  Vaikunta Vasan was awestrcuk.  He had heard from Bhagavan about the Siddhas living on Arunachala.  He began to sweat!  When Bhagavan came near him, He looked at him and said: "So you too heard it!"
