Magical Tree 11 – Come out of foolishness

यदा किञ्चिज्ञोऽहं द्विप इव मदान्धः समभवं
तदा सर्वज्ञोऽस्मीत्यभवदवलिप्तं मम मनः ।
यदा किञ्चित् किञ्चित् बुधजनसकाशादवगतं
तदा मूर्खोऽस्मीति ज्वर इव मदो मे व्यपगतः

When I had little knowledge I was blind with conceit like a rutty elephant.  I thought I was knowing everything and my vanity was great. Then gradually, by virtue of my association with wise men, i realised that knowledge was a vast ocean.  My intoxication vanished like a fever and I realized that I was really a fool.

In my words : Every person whom i meet ..knows something which am not aware of ….which means no one person is a completely learned man ….everytime we learn something it opens a door to another ocean of knowledge room…If we ever feel that we are more educated , wise , learned then it means we have simply closed the learning door of our brain….It is utter foolishness if someone behaves rudely thinking that he is the most learned person because what we have learnt is just a drop and what we are yet to learn is a ocean…..

I learnt to learn from every person atleast one lesson and especially to be in the group of wise men who can lead me from the well of ignorance to path of knowledge – did you ?

  1. saha nav avatu, saha nau bhunaktu, saha viryam karavavahi: tejasvi nav adhitam astu: ma vidvisavahai; aum santih, santih, santih

    – May He protect us both; may He be pleased with us both; may we work together with vigor; may our study make us illumined; may there be no dislike between us. Aum, peace, peace, peace.
