Siva working for a Harjan
« on: June 12, 2009, 02:03:00 PM »
On the morning of 27th January 1946, Bhagavan Ramana
was reading Dinamani and coming across an article there
on the temple at Perur [near Coimbatore], read it out to us
and said: "It is news to me.  We do not hear of this in the
life of Sundaramoorthy or in the Periya Puranam.  But it
may be in the Sthala Puranam." 

This is the story:  On a particular day in the year, the God
and the Goddess are taken out in to an adjoining field and
the festival of the God and Goddess transplanting seedlings
on behalf of a devotee, is celebrated, in memory of the fact,
that one day Sundaramoorthy Swamigal entered the Perur
temple and found to his dismay that neither God nor Goddess
was there and that on searching for them he found them in
a field working at transplanting for this devotee, a Harijan.
