Miracles Do Happen
« on: February 14, 2010, 10:27:22 AM »
On the 17th June, Sri R. Narayana Iyer told Bhagavan Ramana,
of his vain efforts on matrimonial alliance for his eldest daughter
and said that he would make no further attempts unless he
received a specific direction from Bhagavan Ramana. 

Just at that moment, the mail brought a journal named Progress.
Bhagavan read out its motto, "You can succeed if you know
the power that is in you," and said that here was the reply to
Narayana Iyer.  The latter regarding it as a clear token of Bhagavan's
Grace, took up at once a new proposal and succeeded this time.

Another devotee Sri Basavaraju Sitapati said one day:  "Bhagavan!
I am starting tomorrow."  Bhagavan simply replied:  "Why today's
leave-taking for tomorrow?  Let tomorrow take care of itself."
It turned out that Sri Sitapati Rao could not start the next day.
The next morning Bhagavan, seeing him, coout a joke saying:
"Yes, Sitapati Rao is right.  He will go not today but some tomorrow!"  Having learned the lesson of these incidents, I never
afterwards went to take leave of Bhagavan until the last moment.
