Incidents related to Bhagavan & Lakshmi The Cow
Arunachalam Pillai told Bhagavan Ramana: “I have for a long time been thinking of presenting Bhagavan with a cow. I am now in a position to do so. I have brought it after a good deal of trouble by boat and train. Please keep it, Swami.”
Bhagavan told him: “You have done your duty in presenting it to us. Who is there to look after it? Please keep it with you on our behalf.”
The owner of the cow replied: “I will not take it away even if you cut my throat.”
Hearing this Ramanatha Brahmachari was piqued and said with great zest that he himself would look after the cow.
“All right. Hang it round your own neck!” Bhagavan Ramana said.
As the calf came to the Asramam on a Friday, it was named Lakshmi.
