The rains of Grace
« on: January 27, 2010, 09:28:06 AM »
Once the cousin sister of Mirza Ali, the then Dewan of Mysore
and Mrs. Talyarkhan were going round the Hill.  They were talking
about Bhagavan Ramana.  Suddenly Mrs. Talyarkhan said:  I have
been with Him for quite some time now.  Still I am not able to
convince myself that He is the Guru, the Reality, who can give
me liberation.  Then she added:  Now, it is red hot in Tiruvannamalai.
If, as per our Parsi belief, if rains could come down now, I shall
believe Him totally.  Within a few minutes, there was a sudden
downpower, a heavy rain, unusual in Tiruvannamalai at that season!

Both the ladies got fully drenched.  Their cheeks were drenched in
tears of ananda.  They completed the circumambulation with wet
clothes and returned to the Hall with tearful eyes and prostrated
before Him.  Bhagavan Ramana smiled at them:  "Oh, is the down-
pour quite heavy? and looked at them meaningfully!

Arunachala Siva.
