Swami Suresananda - 2
« on: May 07, 2009, 04:30:47 PM »
Certain worldly constraints compelled Sri Damodaran Nair to return
to Palakkad.  Yet his mind stayed with Bhagavan and he continued
off and on to charge his battery by coming to the spiritual presence
of Bhagavan Ramana.  After his return, he spent his days in sadhana.
Now he had a vision of two divine personages and a row of books in a dream.  In September 1947, he started Sri Vijnana Ramaneeyam Library, by obtaining a dilapidated building that belonged to Theosophical Society, near the Government Victoria College, Palakkad.  By this time, Sri Nair came to be called as Vakil Swami,
by the townsmen. During the initial stages, this spiritual centre had functioned in a rented building where Bhagavad Gita classes were held. Later, he purchased some land and constructed a prayer hall and puja room in Bhagavan's name, at the heart of Palakkad itself.

During one of his visits, Mr. Nair translated Ramana Chatvarimsat into Malayalam.  Bhagavan Ramana asked him to recite the same, by calling him, "Vakeel Swami!"  With this inspiration, Swamiji
translated Upadesa Saram and Gita Saram.  He also made Malayalam poems containing the teachings of Bhagavan Ramana.

Once while in the Asramam, Vakil Swami had a high fever and the
doctor had prescribed some medicines.  Swami Satyananda who was nursing him, told that if the matter is made known to Bhagavan, his fever would subside.  He went promptly and reported the matter to Bhagavan Ramana.  This indeed happened!  Vakil Swami's temperature came down and he became well again.  This event
proved that just one 'thought' by Bhagavan Ramana could work miracles.

Once when Vakil Swami was climbing up to Skandasramam.  He saw Bhagavan Ramana coming from opposite direction and wanted to come back with Him.  Bhagavan said:  "Why should you climb down now? Go up, as you had planned."  Vakil Swami felt that these words meant a lot of spiritual content, to avoid sluggishness and indecision in one's spiritual matters.
