Brahma Jnani acts as a mother - 2
« on: January 09, 2010, 12:56:25 PM »
The ghost of atheism once started dancing wildly even in Tiruvannamalai, where Bhagavan resided.

A group of Vedic scholars who were interested in protecting the eternal religion (Sanatana Dharma) approached Bhagavan. One of
the foremost Vedic scholars was their leader.

They bowed to Him, saying , "The Vedic religion has been firmly
rooted in this land of Bharata (India) since time immemorial.  It
has been nurtured by Maharshis themselves since ancient times.
This is the reason why each one of the sub-groups  of the Vedic
religion has a Maharshi as the initiator of that line.  This ancient
Vedic tree is now being shaken by the hurricane of atheism. It
must be firmly re-established by all possible means.  You, who
belong to the clan of the ancient rishis should offer your support
to this endeavour."

Bhagavan replied:  "Certainly!  By all means do this, but do not
involve me in it."

He thus freed Himself from their hold.  However, taking Bhagavan's
reply as His blessings for their endeavour, the group left satisfied.
