Story of Indra and the Bird with Mystic Powers

Story of Indra and the bird who refused to leave the tree on which it had made its abode is found in the Anusasana Parva, Chapter 5, of Mahabharata. A hunter once went hunting with poisoned arrows. One of his arrows hit a big tree and the powerful poison dried up the whole tree.

In the hollow of the trunk of the tree, there lived a bird with mystic powers. It did not leave the tree, which had been its home since birth.

One day Indra approached the bird in the guise of saint. However, the bird easily identified Indra by its mystic power.

Indra advised the bird to leave the tree and find a suitable residence as the tree could fall anytime. The bird did not accept his advice.
Indra was pleased at the bird’s loyalty and gratitude towards the tree. Therefore, he took the bird along with him to heaven.

The gist of all worship is to be pure and to do good to others – Swami Vivekananda

This is the gist of all worship — to be pure and to do good to others. He who sees Shiva in the poor, in the weak, and in the diseased, really worships Shiva; and if he sees Shiva only in the image, his worship is but preliminary. He who has served and helped one poor man seeing Shiva in him, without thinking of his caste, or creed, or race, or anything, with him Shiva is more pleased than with the man who sees Him only in temples.
Look upon every man, woman, and every one as God. You cannot help anyone, you can only serve: serve the children of the Lord, serve the Lord Himself, if you have the privilege. If the Lord grants that you can help any one of his children, blessed you are; do not think too much of yourselves. Blessed you are that that privilege was given to you when others had it not. Do it only as a worship. – Swami Vivekananda
