Sabari the great devotee of Rama

Lord Rama was a very great man. People loved him a lot. They gave him whatever he wanted and took care of him. There was an old lady called Sabari who lived in the Dandakaranya Forest. She was a great devotee of Rama. Rama in search of Sita reached the house of Sabari. Sabari was thrilled to see Rama. She wanted to give him food. The only food that was available to her was wild fruits. She was not sure whether a particular fruit was sour or sweet. But she did not want to give any sour fruit to Rama. So she ate a part of the fruit which she plucked, threw away all the sour ones. She thus offered half eaten fruits to Rama. Rama loved her a lot for her great devotion and blessed her.
