"What empire are you going to capture?"
« on: April 17, 2010, 12:03:43 PM »
Once some devotees brought  lot of mangoes to Bhagavan
Ramana and placed them on the stool in front of Him.  Suddenly
a monkey came.  Bhagavan Ramana looked at the monkey
intensely.  The monkey also came near to the tray of mangoes
but did not touch them and was looking at Bhagavan Ramana
for quite some ten minutes.  The devotees were watching this
with great suspense.

Ten minutes passed.  The still monkey, slowly extended its hand
and touched one mango!  Bhagavan Ramana smiled and said:

"Aday! Aday!  Why are you moving?  What empire are you going
to capture?"
