Apology To Hornets

ramanamaharshiOne day when Bhagavan was climbing the Hill he knocked against a hornets’ nest and was attacked and very badly stung on the leg and thigh. He felt remorse for having disturbed them. Asked why he met with such harsh treatment for what had happened accidentally, he replied as follows:“When I was stung by hornets in revenge Upon the leg until it was inflamed, Although it was by chance I stepped upon Their nest, constructed in a leafy bush, What kind of mind is his if he does not At least repent for doing such a wrong?”Sri Ramana Maharshi
