Miracles Do Happen
« on: April 06, 2009, 12:49:38 PM »
Once, when Sri Bhagavan was going for His usual stroll on the Hill,
everyone suddenly saw a dove falling at His Feet, half-stunned. When they looked ahead, there was a boy who had hit the bird with a stone
and was now standing trembling.

Sri Bhagavan seeing the boy and turning to the devotees following
Him said:  "If two annas* were available, his hunger would subside."
On hearing this, one of them ran down to the Asramam, took two
annas and rushed back to where Sri Bhagavan was attending to the

At Sri Bhagavan's request the two annas were given to the boy who
was very pleased and left.  The bird was still  stunned.  Then Sri
Bhagavan said:  "If someone bring grapes, and if the grape juice is poured over the head of the bird, it should recover."

At that moment, a devotee, not seeing Sri Bhagavan in the Old Hall, was coming up the Hill searching for Him, with grapes as his offering!  Seeing him with grapes in his hands, Sri Bhagavan exclaimed, "The
grapes have arrived!"

Squeezing the grapes on the bird's head, Sri Bhagavan watched and
waited to reaction.  Slowly the dove started to regain consciousness
and after some time, it flew away!
