When Bhagavan Ramana was living at Skandasramam, I was once alone with him, sitting on the steps leading up to the Asramam. A man came to the gate with his family and stopped there and called out to me.
I went to see what this man wanted. The man asked me to go and ask the Swami (Bhagavan Ramana) whether he and his family could approach Bhagavan and receive his Darshan (Darshan means to be in presence of the Divine or a great saint).
I was surprised at the request and asked the man, “Why do you ask permission?”
He replied, “We are Untouchables.”
