Tales of WISDOM



👉Tales of WISDOM 💁💁 It is very popular that Swami Vivekananda gave a speech in Chicago, USA that the religious leaders of the world were stunned by his knowledge, understanding and wisdom. But another Indian was so enamored of foreigners with his knowledge that he was invited to teach as a distinguished scholar at Manchester and the University of London. This great educationist was Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. Who later also became the President of India. It is on his birthday (5 September) that Teachers' Day is celebrated.

In some cases, he was invited to lecture on Indian philosophy in America, UK etc. He explained religion in such a way that, influenced by his knowledge, in 1929–30 he was called to take up the post of principal at Manchester College.

Hearing his speech in London University on comparative study of religions, the famous philosopher Bertrant Russell had said- 'I have never heard such a good speech, such a wonderful interpretation before in my life. Hearing his lectures, another Western scholar HN Spalling was so impressed that he established a Chair on the subject of Religion and Ethics at Oxford University and invited Dr. Radhakrishnan to embellish it.

When Dr. Radhakrishnan returned from Oxford University to Calcutta in 1939, Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya requested him to become the Chancellor of the Banaras Hindu University. At first he expressed his inability to come to Banaras but Malaviyaji knew that only a superior person like Dr. Radhakrishnan could honor the vice-chancellor of the Banaras Hindu University. He urged again and again. Ultimately, Dr. Radhakrishnan said yes and he became the Vice Chancellor of the Banaras Hindu University, the then Institute of Best Studies in India.


Tales of WISDOM


His statement became very famous all over the world that just giving information is not education. The intellectual leanings of the person and his democratic spirit also have great importance. These things make a person a responsible citizen. The goal of education is to have a sense of dedication to knowledge and a tendency to continue learning. It is a process that imparts both knowledge and skills to the person and paves the way to use them in life. The aim of education is to develop compassion, love and superior traditions. 

Later, despite becoming President, he remained a teacher and, whenever he got time, continued to teach children like an ordinary teacher.

He got useful tips for his spiritual exertions and was grateful. Once Ram Teerth made a resolve to go to Badrinath on foot, not by traditional trail,but through the most difficult path on

Tales of WISDOM


 As the name denotes , this route was always in shade because the sun rays could not penetrate tall trees and dense forests. Narayan Swami and another local companion tried to dissuade Ram Teerth and told him about the trials and tribulations that would stare them on that trail but the saint was unmoved."We are travellers of a divine mission.Why should we be timid?" said he with a grin.

                    They commenced the arduous trek. On the first day, they covered a distance of 25Kms. Towards late evening, they were dead tired. It was decided to spend the night in a cave. But the cave was too narrow and there was not room enough for three persons. They looked far and wide. There, at some distance, they saw a small hut of a shepherd. They sent the local man to the shepherd with a request for shelter. He went and said,"Eh, we want to stay with you for this night. Make arrangements." The shepherd refused. "Sorry, no room." That man returned with a long face. Now Narayan Swami went and addressed the shepherd thus:"You refused to accommodate us for one night. That is bad. We are saints." The shepherd replied: "So what? I have no room in this hut. You can go farther and try elsewhere."Narayan returned with dejection writ on his face.

                     Now Ram Teerth decided to go himself. He greeted the shepherd. "Pranam , dear son. You are so nice. God is ever with you because you are a man of God. Will you be kind enough to let us spend some hours with you and listen to your stories during the night?"

                   The shepherd smiled and said with folded hands, "With great pleasure, Sir. I am your slave."
