RAMANA MAHARISHI

One L. H. Humphreys came.
And met Maharishi three times.
He worked in the Police Department,
Later on, he became a Catholic Priest.

His dialogue with Maharishi he sent
To one of his friends at London,
Which got published in the newspaper,
''International Psychic Gazette.''

When Humphreys wanted to do
Some service to this world,
Ramana said, “Help yourself first.
Are you not part of this world?

“Know that you’re the world.
World isn’t different from you.
The fact is, by helping yourself,
You’re helping this world.”

After this Humphreys asked
“Whether it is possible
For us to do miracles
Like Krishna and Jesus?”

He replied, “Did they realize
When they did all such miracles
Against nature their action was?
Humphreys simply said, “No”

Maharishi was very particular
About self inquiry by one,
“Who am I,” rather than
Outward show by anyone.

A retired army officer then
Major Chadwick, came from Spain.
In the name of ‘Sadhu Arunachala,’
For 25 years, he served Ramana.

He wrote a book with a title,
“A Sadhu’s Thoughts,” well.
Its contents are very clear,
To go through by any reader.

In 1938, Madam Pascaline Mallet,
A French Lady, with her friends, met
Ramana Maharishi and then wrote
A book titled, “Turn Eastward.”

In 1940, an American Lady came.
About her experience with him,
And on her return, a letter she wrote
That she laid her soul under his feet.
