The Final Hour - 2
« on: March 12, 2010, 11:18:17 AM »
While Mr. Cohen thus saw the light in the midst of darkness, Mr.
Chadwick, saw life in the face of death.

He had been admitted in the C.M.C. Hospital, Vellore.  His tongue
had swollen so much that it filled the entire mouth, preventing him
from even making noises.  The doctors put questions to him and he
could not reply.  His end was nearing.  A few devotees from the
Asramam went to Vellore to see him and comfort him. 

Surprisingly, he started speaking to them:  "Today is Easter!",
he said.  When it was pointed out to him that Easter was a few
days hence, he clearly answered them, in his usual loud clear
voice:  "Yes!  I know.  But for me, today is Easter!"

Yes!  That was the day of resurrection for this Ramana-devotee.
Who spoke those words, but the Spirit within?
