Dear Balaji,

You are mistaken. Though Sri Bhagavan or God is within, people who are not in advanced stage need an external presence.
If Christ is in heart, why should Christians go to Church on Sundays? If Allah is in heart, why should Muslims, go to mosques
on Fridays and go for Haj Pilgrimage? The external presence is essential for beginners. 

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Hari,

Name is superior to form. Name takes you the Namelss Self. Please go through Tiruchuzhiyal Padigam of Sri Muruganar.

Dear Ravi,

Yes, Sri Bhagavan said that He had to tell a lie that He had to attend a special class on
Electricity and then left for Tiruvannamalai. In this context, He quoted Tiruvalluvar saying:
Even the false hood is like a truth, if such false hood can produce blemishless good.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Balaji,

Both the stories are true. In regard to the second story, it did happen to Sri Bhagavan. He has translated the relevant verses
from Arunachala Mahatmayam, in Tamizh.  There are seven verses, which are available in the small booklet that contains
Arunachala Stuti Panchakam.  The Cave, the Arunagiri Siddha and all the treasures have been mentioned in Verse 3. Suzanne
who went to the Cave at night, had also had such experiences.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Hari,

It is Bhagavan who had come as unknown guide, or it may be Arunachala Himself. Sri Bhagavan, though not interested in
Siddhis, used siddhic powers occasionally. He went to (!) Tiruvottiyur where Kavyakanta was suffering from acute pain
on the crown with Kundalini reaching the crown.

Dear Hari,

Chagnalal Yogi incident is to prove that a Brahma Jnani does not want to possess anything that will create jealousy to
others. It also proves that He does not want to possess anything that is more than what He has already got.

Dear Balaji,

The story of squirrels:

Yes. These squirrels would eat only cashew nuts and not pea nuts! And that too, only when Sri Bhagavan gives them!

Dear Balaji,

The story of Rajapalayam Ramani Ammal is again a wonderful story. She is a childhood widow, confined to her house and one
day a girl from neighborhood gave her a book which contained the photo of Sri Bhagavan. She was attracted by His smile in
the photo and came to Tiruvannamalai without telling anyone but the girl.

Arunachala Siva.

Quote
Rajapalayam Ramani Ammal

Interviewer: To my knowledge I haven't done anything good and I also wonder, along with you, how Bhagavan has gathered us here.

Ramani Ammal: I can't say that I have ever done anything bad. From my childhood I didn't know what is good and what is bad either. But doing good or bad has nothing to do with our coming to Bhagavan's Presence. It is only by his grace that we are filled with his glorious Presence.

Om Namo Bhagavathe Sri Ramanaya

Dear Balaji,

Thank You Very much for this story! I love it! And it contains great wisdom in it.
Love

Dear Jewell,

Sri Bhagavan has said : Self Inquiry may or may not take you to Self Realization.
                                      Self Inquiry plus grace will surely take you Self Realization.
                                      Many times Grace alone will take you Self Realization.

Grace is all important.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Balaji,

It is not a Sadhu, but an urchin who urinated on the back of Sri Bhagavan.

A Sadhu made green chilli paste and applied it on Sri Bhagavan stating that it will produce good concentration!
Sri Bhagavan said: The chilli paste was hard for some time then the whole body became cool!

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Subramanian sir,

Yes,absolutely true! The Grace is what makes us do self inquiry,or devotion,or anything else,in the first place. When i think about that it is really silly. We think we are doing anything,and the truth is God is doing everything for us.
Love
