Miracles Do Happen
« on: February 26, 2009, 09:01:23 AM »
Sri Munuswamy, who was grazing goats and lambs and was living a livelihood with small income.  One day one of the lambs was missing and he went in search for it. Bhagavan Ramana who was at that time, in the Hill met him and said:  Your lamb has been taken away by
Annamalaiyar, Arunachala.  Later it was found to have been killed by some wild animals.

Munuswamy and his son Natesan then worked for the construction of Mother's Temple.  Annamalai Swami was the chief.  They used to bring granite stones from nearby places.  Once when Bhagavan Ramana was coming down the hill from Skandasramam, Natesan
prostrated to Him.   Bhagavan tapped his shoulder and enquired about him. He used to pull the punkah in the Hall.  Once he was asked to get in and clean up the well.  He did his best to complete this task.  Chinnaswami used to beat him if Natesan did not do the work properly.  Once when he had beaten a monkey, Bhagavan said that it would hurt the monkey as much as he would be hurt by others.   

During later years, Natesan served Sri Balaram Reddiar.  When Reddiar was very sick, he called Natesan, "dey, Natesa!" and then he passed away.

They also serve who stand and wait.
