Dear Ravi,

Yes. Sri Bhagavan's samatvam is something which cannot be described.  He treated everyone, even animals and birds,
alike.  One one Westerner,  a lady had come to have darshan of Sri Bhagavan.  Being not from India, she could not squat
like Indians do, on the floor. She went and placing her back on the wall, was stretching her legs.  The attendant at that time
saw this and went and told her not to stretch the legs, against elders and sadhus,  since it is a form of disrespect.

Sri Bhagavan saw this and started squatting on the sofa!  With His rheumatic legs, it was very difficult and painful and still
He did it. The attendant told Sri Bhagavan to stretch His legs as usual, apologetically.  Bhagavan said: How can there be one
rule for me and a different rule for all others?  She is not from India and she is not used to squat on the floor like us.  You have
gone to her and told her not to stretch.

I believe on that day, Sri Bhagavan was squatting on the sofa up to evening!

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Balaji,

Vallimalai Sacchidananda Swamigal was following both Sri Bhagavan and also Sri Seshadri Swmigal, though latter, he considered him
as a Guru. Once Valliimalai Swamigal and a few others were doing giri pradakshina in the middle route on the Hills. Sri Bhagavan was
also there.  Swamigal sang Vedichi Kavalan Vahuppu (the Song on Muruga who is the consort of huntress (vedichi) Valli.  In that song,
the refrain was Vedichi Kavalane, Vedichi Kavalane... after each stanza. Some Telugu devotees did not understand the verse.
What is this Kavalane?, they were wondering. kavalane in Telugu means, what is that you want? 

Sri Bhagavan understood their predicament and asked: Emi kavalane? enthenthu kavalane?  What is it that you want? How much
you all want?  The devotees in their hungry mood said, Idli Kavalene, Vadai kavalane...coffee kavalane... We want idli, vadai and coffee.

Soon, as they walked further, from the other side one devotee had been coming with a basket-ful of idlis and vadas and two or three
flasks of hot hot coffee!  They all thanked him and sat and had these nice breakfast!

Arunachala Siva.
