"... Bhagavan Himself was very active and did all sorts of work. He stitched leaves, He made kamandalams, He perfected staffs, He assisted in the kitchen, grinding, preparing pastes, cutting vegetables and actual cooking. He acted as a mid-wife to dogs and monkeys. And he did all this without the least attachment and did it all perfectly. The proof of one's doing the actions without attachment is that one feels that it is the Lord who uses one to get things done and done so well. His whole being says: 'The supreme has done these things through me'. Such humility is the mark of spiritual maturity."

~ Sri Sadhu Natanananda describing Sri Bhagavan's teachings to V. Ganesan (from "Beloved Ramana")
