The young boy Ramana (not Sri Bhagavan) who died due to snake sting came alive on Sri Bhagavan's touch.

Does anybody have this story to post into ramana stories thread ? Or maybe it's there but I missed it.

Thanks.

Dear right2be,

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Nagaraj,

This is what Mastan reported to Kunju Swami in 1914, after his first visit to Sri Bhagavan:

When I came to Sri Bhagavan, He was seated like a rock.....(His unwavering gaze) filled with grace, compassion and steady
wisdom. I stood by His side. After giving me a look, He opened the gate of my Heart, and I was also established in His State.
I stood like that for eight hours, absolutely with no fatigue, but filled with total absorption and peace. Sri Bhagavan in those days
used to open our Heart with a simple gracious look.  And it transformed us. There was no need for any questions since He made us
by His look, like Himself.

Sri Bhagavan also mentioned this to Viswantha Swami later,

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Nagaraj,

Yes. By this act, Sri Bhagavan demonstrated what is a nishkamya karma.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Nagaraj,

Yes. Our worldly game is over, we can't reach spirituality.

Dear Nagaraj,

Yes. The boy should be one of the most fortunate persons to touch Sri Bhagavan's feet. As I could remember only
Annamalai Swami and a few others had that fortune.

Arunachala Siva.

Sir, yes, even among the close very direct devotees as well, only rare ones got this rare blessing. Indeed, they are blessed.

मनश्चेन्न लग्नं गुरोरंघ्रिपद्मे ततः किं ततः किं ततः किं ततः किम् ।।

Manaschenna lagnam Gurorangri padme, Thatha kim Thathah Kim, Thathah kim Thathah kim

If the mind does not remain at the Lotus feet of Guru, What is the use? What is the use? What is the use!!

Dear Nagaraj,

Nice story. The old day who cursed Him not to roam around the Hill is definitely Arunachala or Unnamulai. Sri
Bhagavan stopped going to the Hill, summa,  excepting for giri pradakshina or for a stroll after break fast or
lunch.

On another occasion, when He was not that hungry, He wanted to fast for the whole day. But it so happened
in the Hill, seven so called grass pickers came after one another in  one hour's gap and fed Him with some food
and delicacies. Sri Bhagavan thought: Oh, this is also Arunachala's sport. He ate all those given by those seven
cooly girls and came with full stomach to the asramam.

The surprising thing is these seven ladies who are supposed to pick dry grass had their baskets empty!

Kunju Swami says sapta  kanyas were only seven attendants of
Devi!

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Swayam,

Nice story about that Krishna Bhakta. I think he is Krishna Premi, a Westerner who got himself converted to Vaishnavism.
He went to the Hill and was playing with Krishana. Viswantha Swami had to go and bring him for lunch.

Arunachala Siva.

Om Namo Bhagavate Sri Ramanaya

A so-called 'enlightened man,' who took himself for Sri Krishna, came
for the darshan of Ramana Maharshi, wearing clothes like Krishna.

The Maharshi appeared to take him very seriously and treated
this `enlightened one' as Krishna himself.
He even arranged for one of his attendants to give special treatment
to him, like one making puja to an idol of Krishna with all the
worshiping items, etc.

The 'enlightened one' was very pleased and went out.

All the disciples who were there protested against the Maharshi's
treatment of this pseudo-Krishna, saying that it was not proper for
him to treat that man in this manner.


Sri Ramana silenced them all by saying:

ALL OF YOU HERE ARE TAKING YOURSELF FOR MISTER X OR MISTER Y, SO WHAT
IS WRONG WITH THIS ONE TAKING HIMSELF FOR SRI KRISHNA???

Om Namo Bhagavate Sri Ramanaya

Dear Swayam,

Very interesting and,somehow, funny story! Thank You for sharing it!

Love

Dear Jewell,

Yes. It is true. That Krishna Bhakta's name is Krishna Premi. He is actually a Westerner who converted himself into
Vaishnavism.

The remaining part of the story: Krishna Premi went to the Hill and in a Cave, he was playing with Krishna for a long time.
It was late for dinner. Sri Bhagavan did not want anyone to go without food. So He asked Viswanatha Swami togo to
the Hill and fetch him. Viswanatha Swami said: Sri Krishna has long back gone to His place. He is not here in Gokulam.
He is already there in Asramam (meaning Sri Bhagavan) and He wants you to come quickly and have dinner with Him.

Krishna Premi then came down to take dinner and he was sitting near Sri Bhagavan and eating food!

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Balaji,

Varanasi Subbalakshmi Ammal was related to Muruganar or from the same place. Once when aviyal was prepared,
Sri Bhagavan told - We are all eating here nicely. There Muruganar has gone for bhiksha. Why don't someone take one
cup of aviyal to him. Then Subbalakshi Ammal took a cup of aviyal and went to the road, calling Sambamurti! Sambamurti!
That was the original name of Muruganar. Muruganar was at the Sri Dakshinamurti Temple. He saw Subbalakshi Ammal
and stopped. He then took the aviyal cup. Then with tearful eyes, he said: Bhagavan prasadam. Bhagavan prasadam and
relished it. He came back without bhiksha back to the Asramam and cried uncontrollably.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Balaji,

Sri Bhagavan here nicely explained how we give very little to god and want him to give everything to us.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Balaji,

Sri Bhagavan's soothing words made GVS mind melt and he forgot all the dukhkam  of his wife demise. In fact, he
had named one of his daughers as Azagammal!

Arunachala Siva.
