Bhagavan and Lakshmi

When devotees of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi inquired as to how to identify a jnani (Self-realized one) Bhagavan's response was that it is one who has equanimity in all situations and compassion for all living beings, including animals, birds, and insects.

The Cow Lakshmi
On Friday, the fifth of Ani, in the year
Sarvadhari, the twelfth day of the waxing moon,
under the asterism Visakha, the cow Lakshmi
attained mukti.
