SOMETIMES WHEN ONE SUGGESTS AN ELDER OF A CHANGE WHICH WOULD BE BENEFICIAL TO HIM OR HER, HE OR SHE MAY NOT EFFECTIVELY CHANGE THEIR STAND DUE TO...
- THE ELDER IS AGED, HE OR SHE IS NOT ABLE TO REGISTER IT PROPERLY FOR IMPLEMENTATION..... MAY BE ABSENT MINDED DUE TO AGE....
-THE ELDER FEELS THAT IT WILL NOT BE BENEFICIAL OR CONVENIENT FROM HIS OR HER POINT OF VIEW.....
-JUST AN ELEMENT OF STUBBORNNESS.....

A RARE STORY ON SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY, THE GREAT AVADHOOTHA AND ONE OF THE MASTERS OF OUR DATTA PARAMPARA....
SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY, NEAR AHOBILAM VISITED SRI HARI UPADHYAYA'S HOUSE, A BRAHMIN....
THE BRAHMIN WAS DOING SHRARDHA KARMA TO HIS FATHER.... SO SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY SAT OUTSIDE HIS HOUSE.....
THE BRAHMINS WHO HAD COME TO TAKE PART IN THE SHRARDHA KARMA OF SRI HARI UPADHYAYA'S FATHER REFUSED TO TAKE FOOD, UNLESS SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY LEFT THE PLACE....
SRI HARI CAME WITH FOLDED HANDS AND TEARS IN HIS EYES SAID TO THE DIVINE MASTER......'OH LORD.... YOU LOOK LIKE A BRAHMA TEJASWI..... I DO NOT KNOW WHO YOU ARE, BUT I AM ABLE TO GATHER THAT YOU ARE A SANYASI..... I AM PERFORMING MY FATHER'S YEARLY SHRARDHA.... THE BRAHMINS WHO HAVE COME TO EAT THE FOOD ARE REFUSING TO EAT, UNLESS YOU LEAVE THE PLACE..... ON ONE SIDE IT IS THE SHRARDHA KARMA OF MY FATHER AND ON THE OTHER SIDE I FEEL BAD THAT I AM NOT ABLE TO OFFER 'BIKSHA' TO A SANYASI..I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO NOW?'....
SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY SMILED AND SAID...'DON'T WORRY.... I WILL LEAVE THE PLACE AS DESIRED BY THE BRAHMINS....PLEASE PERFORM THE SHRARDHA KARMA OF YOUR FATHER DILIGENTLY'....
SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY LEFT THE PLACE.....
THE SHRARDHA KARMA WAS OVER..... THE BRAHMINS LEFT THE HOME..... SRI HARI UPADHYAYA WAS DEEPLY THINKING OF SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY.....
AS HE WAS THINKING, SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY CAME TO SRI HARI'S RESIDENCE.... SRI HARI WAS VERY HAPPY, FELL AT THE FEET OF THE LORD....
SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY SAID....'NOW WHAT EVER YOU OFFER, I WILL HAVE IT AS BIKSHA'.....
SRI HARI SAID....'OH LORD, THERE IS SOME FOOD WHICH IS LEFT OVER WHICH I HAD OFFERED TO THE BRAHMINS'..
SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY SAID...'I WILL TAKE THEM AS THE 'BIKSHA' WHICH YOU WANTED TO OFFER ME WHEN I CAME IN THE MORNING.....
SRI HARI UPADHYAYA AND HIS WIFE CLEANED THE FEET OF THE LORD AND INVITED HIM TO PARTAKE THE FOOD...
AS SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY SAT AND WAS TAKING THE FOOD, SRI HARI SAW HIS FATHER SITTING AND TAKING THE FOOD.... HE RUBBED HIS EYES A COUPLE OF TIMES AND ASKED HIS WIFE AS TO WHO WAS TAKING THE FOOD....
HIS WIFE URMILA SAID, 'MY FATHER IN LAW IS TAKING THE FOOD'.....
AFTER TAKING THE FOOD, THE COUPLE PROSTRATED SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY..... IN A YEAR'S TIME SRI HARI UPADHYAYA AND URMILA, WHO WERE CHILDLESS FOR 20 YEARS AFTER MARRIAGE, WERE BLESSED WITH A SON....
OM SRI NRUSIMHA SARSWATHYAI NAMAHA....
OM SRI DATTATREYAYA NAMAHA....

CAN WE BURN OUR EGO, SELF PITY, POSSESSIVENESS, JEALOUSY, ANGER, HATRED, GREED WHICH WE HAVE POSSESSED AS AN OLD MATERIAL OF THE PAST IN THE BON FIRE OF BHOGI AND BE BORN AS A NEW PERSON ON MAKARA SANKARATHI?.....
JOYOUS MAKARA SANKARATHI TO ALL OF YOU....

IF YOU HAVE COME TO ME, THINKING THAT YOUR PROBLEMS WILL BE SOLVED, THEN YOU ARE SADLY MISTAKEN..... IN FACT IT MAY INCREASE.... I AM NOT A PROBLEM SOLVER.... I JUST PRAY TO GOD BECAUSE OF LORD'S GRACE AND MY MASTERS GRACE ON ME.... I JUST PRAY FOR ALL, IRRESPECTIVE OF ANY RELIGIOUS, RACIAL, SEX, CASTE AND CREED TO WHICH YOU MAY BELONG TO...I HAVE NO BIAS OR PREJUDICE OR ILL WILL WITH ANY ONE.....
I ASK LORD TO SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS OR AT LEAST GIVE STRENGTH TO FACE AND FIGHT IT OUT..... NOTHING MORE THAN THAT,  I DO.... SO IF YOU HAVE COME TO ME THINKING THAT I AM A PROBLEM SOLVER, THEN BETTER  PACK OFF, BEFORE YOU BECOME DISAPPOINTED WITH ME OR OUR SYSTEM....... IF ANY ONE FROM MY LARGE FAMILY HAS MISINFORMED YOU ABOUT MY ABILITY, IT IS BETTER YOU ARE CAUTIONED NOT TO FALL A PREY TO SUCH PEOPLE'S WORDS.... AS A TEAM WE ARE BLESSED BY THE LORD TO PRAY FOR EVERY ONE'S WELFARE AND THERE IS NOTHING MORE THAN THAT....

IF YOU START MOVING CLOSE TO PEOPLE, THEY TOO WILL START MOVING CLOSER TO YOU.... THERE IS NO POINT LATER BLAMING THE OTHER FOR HAVING TAKEN YOU FOR GRANTED... SO AT THE OUTSET ITSELF BE CHOSY IN DECIDING WITH WHOM TO BE CLOSE....

MASTER ALONE CAN UNDERSTAND YOUR FEELINGS THE WAY YOU FEEL..... IF HE CANNOT , THEN HE IS NOT YOUR MASTER....
