While scripture can be potent medicine for the disease of samsara, spiritual stories are like delicious sweets giving us a direct and effortless taste of sublime spiritual truths.
Ramana Maharshi was a master chef who provided a divine feast for his devotees. Timeless parables and epic tales came alive with his gracious words and inimitable dramatizations.
“Such was the attraction of these stories,” said Kunju Swami, “that when we heard Sri Bhagavan beginning a story, even if we had heard it numerous times before, we would literally stop whatever we were doing and run to his side to hear it again!”
May the seeker find both inspiration and guidance, entertainment and enlightenment in these classic stories as retold by our beloved Sadguru.
