Gaze of a Jnani
« on: February 07, 2009, 12:21:38 PM »
Major Chadwick said to Bhagavan Ramana, on 1st February 1936:

"It is said that one look of a Mahatma is enough, that idols, pilgrimages, etc., are not so effective. I have been here for three
months, but I do not know how I have been benefited by the look
of the Maharshi.

Bhagavan Ramana:  The look has a purifiying effect.  Purification cannot be visualized.  Just a piece of coal takes long to be ignited,
a piece of charcoal takes a short time and a mass of gunpowder
is instantaneously ignited, so it is with grades of men coming in
contact with the Maharshi.

(Bhagavan Ramana has already said in Who am I?:  Those who fall in the grace of Guru will be defnitely benefited and will never be forsaken, as the deer that has fallen into the jaws of a tiger cannot survive....)
