Kindness Is Manliness In Man and Femininity In A Woman

William Wordsworth, in one of his poems, listed acts of Kindness and Love as the best of a good man’s life.  Of what avail is one’s life sans kindness to the world around…of what avail is one’s life that does not care for the man next and the world around, that does not feel the pain of his fellow beings…it is time for man to introspect, to inculcate the value and thus set himself free, for man alone holds the key for his freedom, writes Ms. Jullie Chaudhuri… read more »

With Two Teeth

Does Bhagawan require a letter to get tuned to a devotee’s problem? Answer is a firm “No”. All knowing God that Bhagawan is, He does not require a letter from a devotee to get to know his problem. Letter to Swami was this modern-day Avatar’s uniqueness, yet another sign of His supreme munificence. Before the letter reaches Him, even before the letter is written, our Bhagawan knows the contents in a devotee’s heart. Prof. N. Kasturi writes how he personally witnessed such an incident inside the interview room proving Bhagawan’s omniscience. Extracted from Sanathana Sarathi June 1960.
