Ahalya Story in Ramayana

The story of Ahalya, wife of Gautama Rishi, is an important episode in the epic Ramayana. Ahalya story happens during the exile period of Sri Ram and is found in the Bala Kanda. Bhagavan Sri Ram touches a stone near the Ashram of Gautama Rishi and it suddenly turns into a woman. This was Ahalya who was cursed by her husband to become a stone.

Indra, the king of demigods, was infatuated by the beauty of Ahalya. He attempted to seduce her by taking the form of Gautama Rishi. Ahalya did not stop the advances of Indra, although Ahalya knew that it was not her husband who was approaching her.

Swami Vivekananda – Wise Words

As the spider throws her web out of herself and draws it in, even so this universe is thrown out and drawn in by God.
By the establishment of truthfulness the Yogi gets the power of attaining for himself and others the fruits of work without the works. When this power of truth will be established with you, then even in dream you will never tell an untruth. You will be true in thought, word and deed. Whatever you say will be truth. You may say to a man, ‘Be blessed,’ and that man will be blessed. If a man is disease, and you say to him, ‘Be thou cured,’ and he will be cured immediately.
I will compare truth a corrosive substance of infinite power. It burns its way in wherever it falls – in soft substance at once, hard granite slowly, but I must.
