Sri Ram Teaches Parashuram the Important Lesson of Afforestation

Sri Ram and Parashuram once met at Panchavadi during Sri Ram’s exile period. Sri Ram was watering plants in the forest when Parashuram arrived. During their talk, Sri Ram inquired what Parashuram was doing. Parashuram said that he was clearing the forests in the neighbouring region and building ashrams and villages. On hearing it, Sri Ram just smiled. Parashuram then bid adieu to Sri Ram. While returning home, Parashuram met a few learned people.

Lakshmana Sharma Sayings

Mind is only thoughts. The more easily you can be without thoughts, the nearer you are to a direct experience of Self. To make the mind die you must deprive it of thoughts. Humble righteousness is nine-tenths of the Egoless State. The religious man always thinks that his zeal for making converts is a virtue. It is not a virtue at all, but a vice because this zeal is due to his egoism. The amount of grace which one receives is proportional to the degree to which one surrenders. If you surrender completely, then you will receive enough grace to realize the Self. Lakshmana Sharma – an ardent follower of Sri Ramana Maharishi
