Lesson from a snake
« on: February 21, 2010, 08:36:33 AM »
At Skandashram a peacock would follow Bhagavan everywhere. One day a huge black cobra appeared in the Ashram and the peacock attacked it fiercely. The cobra spread its hood and the two natural enemies were poised for a fight to the death, when Bhagavan came quite near the cobra and said, “Why did you come here? That peacock will kill you. Better go away at once”. The cobra immediately lowered its hood and slithered away.

Perhaps, we have a lot to learn from this snake, like how it so humbly obeyed Bhagavan's orders implicitly, without thinking or questioning like us - (I)
