The Child is father of the man
« on: July 19, 2009, 12:55:51 PM »
Once Nochur Venkataraman was invited to a primary school
in Thrissur, Kerala to speak about Bhagavan Ramana.  He went
to a class of small children.  He asked one of them:  Who are you?
'I am Hari'.  How do you know that you are Hari?  'My mother tells
me!'  Then suddenly rains started pouring.  The lights went off.
The windows and doors were closed.  It was quite dark.  Then,
Nochur Venkataraman asked the same child:  Who you are you?
Hari replied: ' I am Hari.'  How do you know you are Hari, your
mother is not here.  It is quite dark.  The child replied with all
coolness:  'I am feeling my Presence!' 

Nochur then told Hari:  "Yes. You are the Presence. The Presence
is God.  We are all God.  And this is what Bhagavan Ramana told
all of us.  We are God."    The Brahma-Upadesam began for the

Arunachala Siva.
