Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi healing a pigeon
« on: April 24, 2010, 11:46:01 AM »
Bhagavan always became concerned if any of the animals in his vicinity were injured or discomfited in any way. I was once walking with Bhagavan on the hill in the early morning when a pigeon fell in front of us. It had been attacked by a bigger bird and its head was severely injured. Bhagavan asked me to pick it up and bring it back to the ashram. When we got back to the hall, Bhagavan put it on his lap and massaged the injury with castor oil. From time to time he would also gently blow on the wound. The bird made no objection to this because it was either in a state of shock or unconscious.

After Bhagavan's treatment the pigeon made a speedy and almost miraculous recovery. It flew away without exhibiting any signs of the serious injury it had recently suffered.
