A story about Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi's Impact


 A man once boarded the wrong train and ended up in Tamil Nadu near Arunachala in Tamil Nadu, a holy pilgrim site that has moved many a seer and saint. He was told by a lot of people to go visit the site and meet a man named Ramana Maharshi. 

The man, an avowed communist and atheist, had always baulked at the idea of religion. However, since he had heard so much by then, he decided to go and meet him. 

The minute he stepped into the ashram of Bhagavan, he could not control his emotions. Something took over him. Meeting Maharshi he did not know what happened to him. Bhagavan said nothing, and yet he was impacted heavily by the meet. His whole outlook to spirituality and religion changed in a minute. 

He took Bahgavan's blessing and returned home to Kerala. Took up Sannyas and started to work for society.

That man later became famous as Swami Chinmayananda, the founder of the Chinmaya Mission.
