Ramawami Pillai Day - 14.01.2010 (4)
« on: January 14, 2010, 09:55:44 AM »
There is no detailed account about Ramaswami Pillai in David
Godman's Power of the Presence.  There are a few instances
related to him, in Arunachala's Ramana, Boundless Ocean of
Grace volumes.

Once a party came to have darshan of Bhagavan Ramana.  On their
way, their motor-car met with a minor accident, where an old lady
was badly bruised.  They could not much help the situation.  They
admitted her into a nearby dispensary and left some money for the
expenses and proceeded.  As soon as they came to Bhagavan Ramana, they narrated this incident.  Bhagavan Ramana was not
quite happy about the visitors' indifference, but did not say anything.

He must have given some instructions to Ramaswami Pillai.  Sri
Pillai rushed to the hospital in his cycle, checked up with the doctors and came to know that the old lady's bruises were not serious and
she had been given necessary cleaning up of the injuries, along
with medication and she had been discharged.  Sri Pillai became
peaceful.  He rushed back in cycle.  He informed Bhagavan Ramana and also the 'visitors' concerned, who had a sigh of relief.  He
had bicycled  about 20 miles in about 2 hours and he was quite
tired but did not show any indication of his pain in his legs and

On a similar occasion, as there was already some delay to proceed
to the station and catch the train, the visitors quickly took leave
of Bhagavan Ramana and left the Asramam.  The evening supper
consisting of Tiruchuzhi dosas, could not be taken by them.  Bhagavan Ramana asked Ramaswami Pillai to take the packet of
Tiruchuzhi dosas and go to the station to deliver it to the visitors
if possible.

Sri Pillai rushed to the station and to his relief found that the train
had not yet then left.  He checked up for the compartment quickly
and handed over the packet of Tiruchuzhi dosas.   The visitors
joyfully accepted the gift of Bhagavan Ramana.  Sri Pillai also
became very happy and reported the incident when he had returned
to the Asramam.
