Miracles Do Happen
« on: April 20, 2009, 04:07:45 PM »
In 1943 (or 1944), Dr. Jesudasan, known as Peria Annan (the
Chinna Annan being Dr. Paton), accompanied by Dr. Raja went to
Sri Ramanasramam to have darshan of Bhagavan Ramana.

Peria Annan who was a highly qualified doctor, and who had done
his medical studies in Edinburgh, wanted to serve the poor.  At
the same time, he had a deep spiritual longing, and spent long
hours in prayer, meditation, and reading the scriptures.  Some
accused this odd sannyasi doctor of not giving his full attention
to medical work and wasting his expert talents.   He himself was
disturbed about this seeming dichotomy in his life.

He went to the Old Hall and sat in silence before the Maharshi
amidst several devotees.  Solemn silence prevailed and after
some fifteen minutes, Peria Annan ventured to speak out and
seek Bhagavan's guidance.  Smiling, the Maharshi said:  " Some
call Me a lazy fellow.  Do what hyou feel like doing."

Peria Annan realized in a flash that there was no real dichotomy
in his life.
