It is one of the most difficult things to listen—to listen to the communist, to the socialist, to the congressman, to the capitalist, to anybody, to your wife, to your children, to your neighbor, to the bus conductor, to the bird—just to listen.
It is only when you listen without the idea, without thought, that you are directly in contact; and being in contact, you will understand whether what he is saying is true or false; you do not have to discuss.
1. He always told the people to do their work on their own without depending on others.
2. He was a freedom fighter but differed from other freedom fighters because of his Determination.
3. He never gave up and he never lost hope, even when his struggle met with failure.
4. He didn't let go of his belief in non-violence. 5. What he preached he first practiced. 6. He never asked anyone to do anything, but showed everyone how to do it. 7. He showed simple living and high thinking. 8. He did not believe in wars and conflicts as solutions. 9. He was also dedicated and considered all work to be important. 10. What inspired people to follow Gandhiji is his Courage and Confidence. He never hesitated to be on the path of truth and needed no one to support him. 11. He knew for certain that he was doing the right thing. When we do the right we need not have any fear. 12. Gandhiji practiced simplicity. He was fearless in speaking the truth and he practiced non-violent methods to put across his point of view. 13. Gandhiji never told people to follow him or regard himself as a leader. He never intended to lead but he choose to follow. 14.Seek the Truth and it will set you free. This is the principle of Gandhiji.
"Live for an ideal, and that one ideal alone. Let it be so great, so strong, that there may be nothing else left in the mind; no place for anything else, no time for anything else." - swami Vivekananda
Wow. Had a great 'Hanuman Jayanthi'(birthday day of lord hanuman).
I went to temple at 11. The temple was embellishing at that time and the God is being anointing by the priest. Well, I met my friend Ranjith, Bhaskar,
Mahesh after a long time at temple. This time I missed the anointing ceremony.
But we embellished the temple with flags of Hanuman, wreath the doors of the
temple and actively participated in temple activities.
So it’s being the hanuman jayanthi so many people
from different areas had came to the temple. The temple was crowded by so many devotees. No one is idle. Everyone
is busy in some work of temple. Some are helping the priest. Some are busy at decorating
the temple. Some are helping at the 'Anna Prasad' (Food presented to the
god or blest by a priest and then distributed in the temple) section. The temple
was filled with fragrance of devotion, love and reverence.
Mean while the priest completed Ornamenting the Lord Hanuman.
The priest praised the Lord hanuman with the sacred hymns of Veda. Everyone
prostrated towards Lord Hanuman. Then went to take Anna Prasad and
then returned home at 2:30. This time hanuman
jayanthi has filled us with a great pleasure, satisfaction and devotion.
