078 – Two Shlokas

“Under the shade of the Banyan tree, the old guru and the young disciple are seated. The Guru is not saying anything, but the questions and doubts of the disciple are getting cleared one by one.” Swami Satyananda said that when he sat with Swami Sivanananda this happened to him. The questions ceased and the intellect eased. A man who is really great does not know he is great. He is humble because he is practicing or acting with humility.

“The finest qualities of our nature like the bloom on fruits can be preserved only by the most delicate handling, yet we do not trust ourselves nor one another thus tenderly.” Henry David Thoreau. He was a naturalist and was deeply influenced by oriental philosophy. If we were to become aware of the feelings of others constantly we would be able to change ourselves and thus view the world with love and compassion.
