Once Chinnaswami got very cross with me and I felt quite nervous about it. I could not eat my dinner and the next morning, feeling unreconciled and yet hungry, I told Bhagavan, who was preparing rice cakes, that I was in a hurry to go to town as some pupils were waiting for me.

"The cat is out of the bag," said Bhagavan. "Today is Sunday and there is no teaching work for you. Come, I have prepared a special sambar for breakfast and I shall make you taste it. Take your seat."

So saying, he brought a leaf, spread it before me, heaped it with iddilies and sambar and, sitting by my side, started cutting jokes and telling funny stories to make me forget my woes. How great was Bhagavan's compassion!

T.K. Sundaresa Iyer was a life-time bonded slave for Bhagavan
Ramana.  As Manikkavachakar said in Tiruvachakam: "I do not
know who I am really is.  I do not know the day and night.  My
mind is not there with me.  I am mad.  Siva of Tiruperundurai
has enslaved me and tied me to His golden feet!"

Once the Head Master of the school, had to send a person to
fetch him from the Asramam, and Head Master himself was
standing at the gate of the school to find out whether Iyer
had arrived, since it was time to start the class!

Arunachala Siva.
