Story of Namdev and the Dog

Sant Namdev was one of the pillars of the Bhakti cult that developed around the worship of Bhagavan Vitthal of Pandarpur in Maharashtra during the middle ages. Story of Namdev and the dog symbolically shows that he was a personification of compassion.

Legend has it that once when Sant Namdev had sat down for his routine meal of Dal Roti with a dash of ghee to go with it, all of a sudden; a dog appeared and, snatching a roti, ran away.

Namdev got up hurriedly and, grabbing the small container holding the ghee, ran after the dog, hailing it, “O Lord! How will you eat the dry roti all by itself? Please take this ghee with it!

Sant Namdev, who saw God in everything, including the dog, ran after Him. The sweetness with which he addressed the canine and the compassion behind his action reveals the sensitivity of evolved souls, who see creation as an extension of themselves.

Take care of your thoughts and desires – Dada J P Vaswani

Often times, we pay scant attention to our thoughts. But thoughts are forces. Thoughts survive and have forms and colours: and they cling to us. They are never lost. A thought may have the form of an angel or a demon, depending upon its contents. If I think a thought of peace, good-will, love, service, purity, prayer, it will stick to me, wearing the form of an angel. If I think a thought of hatred, jealousy, envy, resentment, ill-will, greed, lust, it will stick to me, wearing the form of a demon.
Each one of us has around himself these forms – angelic or demoniac – depending upon the type of thoughts he thinks.
Take care of your thoughts and desires, your impulses and emotions, your feelings and fancies. With them you are building your own life, your hell or your heaven. You are the builder of your own fate, the architect of your destiny. No one – other than you – is to blame for your present condition. You have built it with your own thoughts and desires generated in the near or d…
