Rajapalayam Ramani Amma
« on: October 25, 2009, 05:17:48 PM »
Rajapalayam Ramani Amma, a young widow, from an orthodox
non-Brahmin family was a timid lady right from young age,
not even coming to the outer portals of the house, due to her
widowhood as well as timidity.  She was reading Srimad Bhagavad
Gita but wihout understanding anything.  One day a friend of her
gave the Tamil biography of Bhagavan Ramana, Sri Ramana
Vijayam (Sri Suddhanda Bharati).   As soon as she touched the
book, she lost all body consciousness!  With some difficulty,
she returned to the house from the gates, after receiving the
book.  She sat on the cot and started opening the book, saw
Bhagavan Ramana's picture inside and again had a loss of body

With the help of an old widow, she came to Bhagavan Ramana,
to Tiruvannamalai.  She went into the outer meadow, near
the Iluppai Tree, and asked someone where was Bhagavan
Ramana.  Bhagavan Ramana came but she saw only a thick
column of light.  Jyoti Darsanam!  A few seconds later, she
saw His form, in body.  She remembered the dream of Siva
Linga, that she had many times in the recent past.

She knew that she had finally arrived!

Arunachala Siva.
