Bhagavan & Madhavan (Attendant)
« on: August 06, 2010, 04:31:49 PM »
One day the attendant Madhavan was binding a book. A devotee wanted a book from the library. Bhagavan asked Madhavan to get it saying, "You do my work; I will do your work," And Bhagavan took the book and went on with the binding while Madhavan got the library book.

What great teaching and how much simpler can it get? We should all do what Bhagavan asks us to do, he will take care of our work. I pray i get such wisdom. Even casual movements of Bhagavans' body also signifies some teaching i feel!

Salutations to Sri Ramana

Madhavan is said to have taken rebirth as a white peacock.  This white peacock was donated by Baroda Maharani and it was living
in the Asramam.  Many devotees said that the peacock was
formerly Madhavan in the earlier birth. This was due to the fact, that the peacock would often sit on the bookshelf and peck at the books, as if it was arranging the books, as Madhavan used to do.  Bhagavan
Ramana also called the peacock:  Madhava!
