RAMANA MAHARSHI

'Arunachala'

Who ever -knew that this boy would become a saint some day? But many of the important events in life come about by chance. Venkataramana became a saint How did it come about?

When the boy was sixteen years old, one day a guest came to the house of Subba lyer. He was asked where he came from. He replied, "From Arunachala." The word attracted Venkataramana'

curiosity. He asked: "Was it from Arunachala you came? Where is it?" The guest replied: Tiruvannamalai itself is Arunachala."

Something attracted the boy. He made up his mind then and there that he should visit Arunachala once. One of the Tamil poems that he had read was Kulothunga's 'Periya Purana'. The stories relating to Shaiva saints narrated in it left a deep impression on his mind. The example of those saints produced a strange effect on the Wart and mind of the boy. 'How I wish that I could also become one like them!' so he yearned. From that very day he commenced solitary, silent meditation on God.
