THE GREAT MEN FOREVER ARE GREAT!


  • When the disciples wanted to help out the Great Sage who was affected with the terminal disease in His advanced age, the Great Personality smiled and said, "As long as my hand moves, let it alone do the work.... Only when it stops moving, you can help me out!" confirming the Truth in the world that it's ever the best one does the basic work by himself / herself as much as possible whatever be the situation around....
  • Whenever the Great Man was praised even a bit, He used to feel instantly restless.... He continued to search and find out Himself any mistake He was doing and bring out the same in front of others to stress the fact that He was not that Great and then alone used to be at peace confirming the fact in life that yielding to praise in our life is an eternal trap and the sooner one comes out of that and start accepting own mistakes, the better....
  • The Great Saint used to live almost out side openly.... When questioned on that, He used to reply, "I still live in my home.... The Sky is my roof, the Hills around are my walls, the Earth is my floor and the Way in front is the door...." confirming gently the fact that differences and divisions forever lead to pain alone ultimately and it is better to see Unity in diversity as much as possible.....
  • When the disciples were not happy with a man of ill-repute visiting the Ashram regularly, the Great Saint said, "I see this man daily coming to this place in time, himself well dressed and groomed and sits thru' full time paying all the attention.... None of you are doing that as I see you all daily.... Why don't you learn these good habits of him and implement?" confirming the fact that it's ever good for one to see as much good in others as possible and carry that respect for the man instead of resorting to the easy path of criticizing bringing out the man's defects....
  • When the disciple having found his Master moving suspiciously towards bushes and followed him only to find out that He went to there to answer the Nature's Call, could no more keep his act of doubting his own Master and revealed it to Him asking him to punish him for the misdeed, the Master smiled and said, "Never leave this doubting and do not spare even me in that....Then alone you will truly progress in the Path of Spirituality!" confirming the fact that searching, questioning and thus finding out is the right way of living in every sphere of activity including in the Path of Spirituality without an exception....
  • When two disciples were sent to two people to collect from them the pending dues to the Ashram with two exactly opposite instructions and the puzzled other disciples asked the Master for giving those totally opposite instructions to both of them, the Master smiled and said, "One man is soft and that 's why I told him.... Be tough, raise your voice and demand the money.... The other man is a rough in his nature, that's why I told him the opposite.... Go soft, talk less and demand the money.... Here, the force in getting money in both cases finally would be the same!" confirming the very much needed Art of Management in every situation of life....
  • When the Contemporary Philosopher happened to praise a foreign made item compared to His own country made one and a disciple from the audience pointed out that Patriotism was missing in the Great Man's words, the Spiritual Master smiled and said, "Please tell me if I am wrong here.... According to you which item is really superior in functionality at the back of individual Technologies with the Product Manufacturers?" confirming the fact that all emotional talk should end when the Scientific Temper is truly 'ON'....
  • When the Great Man was asked the question, "If a man and your son exactly in the same need seek your help, whom do you help first", He said that if everything was identical, He would help His son first.... And when pointed out that being a Great Personality how could He show partiality like that, the Great Man said with all firmness, "Given equal situation, I have more duty towards my son than to the other man!" confirming the fact that discharge of family responsibilities honestly to the core forever is the sacred activity in front of all and there a Great Man like Him too was no exception!
The Great Men of the Earth thus forever told in a practical way what is truly good to every one at their own level and never expected any one to do more leaving their ordained duties which the system around often speaks of.... That's why they forever are our Guide, Worthy of Worship and ultimately to say the True Divine Incarnations on the Earth to Establishment Dharma and Peace!
