Story of Demon Madhu – The City of Mathura is named after This Demon

The city of Mathura associated with Sri Krishna is named after demon Madhu. The story of demon Madhu is mentioned in the Uttara Khanda of the Ramayana. He lived during the Kritya Yuga and was renowned for his Dharma. This righteous Daitya was the son of Lola and was an ardent devotee of Shiva.
Madhu had a very good relationship with Devas – the celestial beings. He also respected Saints and ruled his kingdom following Dharma. All the subjects in his kingdom lead a peaceful and prosperous life.
His intense austerity and piety earned him the favor of Shiva. Mahadev Shiva blessed Madhu with a trident. The powerful trident could reduce all of whom that tried to harm Madhu.
The city of Mathura was founded by this demon Madhu.
But Madhu had an Adharmic son named Lavana. After the death of Madhu, the trident was passed on to his wicked son. He started harassing Devas, saints and other living beings with it. Saints appealed to Bhagvan Sri Ram to find a solution. Shatrughna, brother of Sri Ra…

Faith in ourselves will do everything – Swami Vivekananda

You know but little of that which is within you. For behind you is the ocean of infinite power and blessedness.
Let a man go down as low as possible; there must come a time when out of sheer desperation he will take an upward curve and will learn to have faith in himself. But it is better for us that we should know it from the very first. Why should we have all these bitter experiences in order to gain faith in ourselves? We can see that all the difference between man and man is owing to the existence or non-existence of faith in himself. Faith in ourselves will do everything. I have experienced it in my own life, and am still doing so; and as I grow older that faith is becoming stronger and stronger.
