Am I not here to look after you?
(Cow) Lakshmi just could not spend a day without seeking Bhagavan's company sometime or other during the course of the day. One day she came to the hall, went straight to Bhagavan and literally wept on Bhagavan's shoulders. For half-an-hour Bhagavan kept consoling her, saying:
'Why are you so woe-begone, dear mother? Am I not here to look after you?'
and so on, till she was pacified.
--Venkatakrishnayya remembers (p 101, UY)
5. Escape this blame! Why didst Thou then recall Thyself to me? How can I leave Thee now, O Arunachala?
