Once, a lady-devotee, was going around and telling people in
Tiruvannamalai, that she had been given Mantropadesa by
Bhagavan Ramana and He had instructed her to give those
'mantras' to various people. She also did this Mantropadeasa
to various persons and was getting offerings of "pada pooja",
money, silk sarees etc!  Some devotees developed suspicion
about this mantropadesa business and reported to Bhagavan Ramana.
He said:  I do not know anything.  I have not given mantropadesa
to anyone.

Those devotees wanted to go to that lady and others to call the bluff.
Bhagavan Ramana told them, "Do not do all those things.  Then
she will say that I had given mantropadesa through my subtle body.
Then her devotees would come to me to verify whether I had given
any mantropadesa through my subtle body.  Why all these troubles.
Just be silent."

It is quite well known that Bhagavan Ramana called nobody as His
disciple and none was given any mantropadesa.  All are His devotees
