Miracles Do Happen
« on: February 18, 2009, 11:05:37 AM »
Once in 1930, Kapali Sastri went to the Asramam, along with S.P. Pandit, his disciple and a great Aurobindo follower.  This visit was
Kapali Sastri's earlier visit and not the later one where he submitted
his Sri Ramana Gita Bhashya to Bhagavan Ramana.  During this visit Bhagavan Ramana asked Kapali Sastri to correct the Sanskrit version
of perhaps, Sad Darsanam, of Lakshmana Sarma.  Kapali could go about only with two verses and there were many corrections to be made in the remaining 38 verses. Time was not adequate as per his travel plans.  In the evening, Bhagavan Ramana came to the Hall and asked Kapali Sastri to resume the work.  It was amazing that he could complete all the work within two or three hours! 

Later, S.P. Pandit, told Kapali Sastri that it was a magnificent sight
to see the Maharshi sitting with His blazing eyes transfixed on Kapali Sastri all the while. He added that the Maharshi's face and head
looked inordinately large during that time!  At the end, Bhagavan
Ramana asked Kapali Sastri, with an exclamation of joy,: "So it is finished?" Kapali Sastri replied: "Yes. But the last verse does not come off in this particular metre." Bhagavan Ramana further queried: "Does not come in that metre?" and again sank into silence.  Within a moment, a strong upward movement gushed up from beneath the navel, somewhere from the root of the spine, and involunatarily a verse came out from Kapali Sastri like a cry from his mouth!  It was a verse in the required metre!
