Ramana Maharshi suggests to Eat without thinking of the ego

Talk 228.

At lunch a visitor from Nellore asked the Master for a tiny bit of food (prasad) from His dish.

M.: Eat without thinking of the ego. Then what you eat becomes Bhagavan’s prasad.

After lunch the Master continued humorously: “If I had given you one morsel from my plate, each one would ask for a morsel too.

What will be left for me if I distribute the whole plate to others?


So you see that it is not devotion. There is no significance in eating a morsel from my plate. Be a true devotee.”
