Miracles Do Happen
« on: January 05, 2009, 10:13:52 AM »
Muruganar came to Bhagavan Ramana sometime in 1923. He started
staying with Him permanently after a few years, when his mother
had passed away.

Once Muruganar was sitting in the Old Hall.  Oneday, one ardent
devotee of Lord Subrahmanya came to Bhagavan Ramana and prostrated
before Him.  He then told Bhagavan Ramana with heavy heart that he
had been chanting Subrahmanya mantra, for the previous 10 years
and that he had not yet been favoured by the Lord's darshan.  Bhagavan
asked the devotee:  Is it so? Muruganar who was hearing this complaint told the devotee with great excitement:  Look, your mantras have paid
dividends today.  Whom do you think, is the one who is sitting before you?

The devotee was a little awed and keeping his eyes wide open, he looked
at Bhagavan Ramana once more for a few seconds.  Then, he started
shedding uncontrollable tears and with excitement exclaimed:  Yes,
yes. My mantras have paid me rewards to day.  My favourite deity has
shown Him today!  He became convinced that Bhagavan Ramana was
Subrahmanya after this experience!
