You Brought Yourself! By T. K. Sundaresa Iyer

Whenever I went up the hill to see Bhagavan Ramana, I used to buy something to eat and take it with me as an offering.

One day I had no money. I stood before Bhagavan in a dejected mood and said: “This poor man has brought nothing.”

Bhagavan looked at me enquiringly and remarked: “Why you brought the main thing. All else is unimportant.”

I wondered, not knowing what I brought.

“Don’t you understand? You brought yourself,” laughed Bhagavan!
