Miracles Do Happen
« on: February 28, 2009, 09:01:35 AM »
R. Narayana Iyer, kitchen colleague of G.V. Subbaramaiah decided to
celebrate his daughter's marriage, but the plan was sudden.   There were hardly two or three days left.  No arrangements had been made.  Sunday was the marriage, and till previous Thursday, marriage was not even finalized.  He got worried.  He prayed to Bhagavan Ramana and wrote a letter of saranagati with tears trickling from his eyes.  From that moment the burden was lifted.  Then, he went to Tiruvannamalai only to find that he had no work.
Cooks, vessels, provisions, in fact, every detail had been arranged
and everything went off very well.  It was wonderful.  The nerve-racking suspense, frantic efforts at the last moment, and the frenzied wanderings looked like a dream afterwards.  Narayana Iyer only chanted and chanted like a mantra, the words given by Bhagavan Ramana:  "You will succeed if you know the Power that is in you."

I am not sure this is a miracle. But I think it is an example of people wishing to have results when practicing something (anything). Sometimes they record happening which seem related to their practice - sometimes they record nothing of this kind. Still they remember only the first. They need results, confirmation, as they live entirely in their ego. What a shame!
