The devotee who witnessed Bhagavan Ramana’s effortless and Natural Sense of equality and his treating all beings alike including animals, Birds and Plants have expressed their sense of wonder and have affirmed that they had not seen such an instance elsewhere in their lives.

In Bhagavan's days, his Ashram was like an Ancient Rishi Ashram where birds and Animals lived fearlessly and in friendship. Lakshmi, the cow, would not enter the newly built goshala on the opening day without Bhagavan entering it first; so she went to the Old Hall to fetch him. On the hills Bhagavan would arbitrate between two warring Monkey groups.

Kamala, the dog, would take a newcomer to the Ashram for Giripradakshina, when told by Bhagavan. When a sparrow's nest was disturbed, she would come, chirp and complain to Bhagavan.

Madhava the white Peacock was trained by Bhagavan to be a strict vegetarian; he stopped eating worms. Bhagavan was their Guide and Friend. He showered Grace and Compassion on them. They in turn reciprocated with a Love and faith, which the humans would envy.

There are so many incidents of Bhagavan's Relationship with animals which inspire us to respect the entire Creation of the Lord without Discrimination and to surrender totally to Sadguru Ramana Bhagavan.
