Oh, is it you?
« on: January 15, 2010, 09:06:37 AM »
One afternoon, an old widow, about 60 years old, came with a
group of women into the Old Hall, prostrated to Bhagavan Ramana
and stood for sometime.  Bhagavan Ramana looked at her and
exclaimed:  "Oh, Is it you?"  The old lady became very shy and
simply rushed out of the Old Hall.

Bhagavan then told the devotees:  Do you know who she is?
Her family and my family were living in Tiruchuzhi in the same
house in two portions.  I used to go into our kitchen and help
my mother in some odd jobs in cooking. Amma used to say
that this girl would be married to me!  However, this girl's
mother used to say:  "O, How can I marry my daughter to this
boy, who always wears a codpiece and help his mother in cooking
like a female?"

Bhagavan continued:  "Thank God, I did not marry her. There was
no marriage in my life.  Otherwise, what would have happened to
me now?"     

The devotees laughed heartily, about the hidden meaning in
Bhagavan Ramana's words!

Arunachala Siva.
