One very simple incident of life occurred in
life of a Hindu saint! While taking Bath along a swollen river the saint noticed a crab float by! Immediately he
pounced on the crab and picked it up in his hand! He wanted to save the life of the crab. No sooner the crab was
out of water (struggling for life) he bit the hand of the saint.
The saint jerked his hand and the crab again fell into the flooded river. The saint again picked the crab and again
the crab bit the saint in the hand. The crab again fell down into the swollen river. The third time when he picked
the crab in his hand... a commoner... one from the masses passed by! He minutely observed what the saint was
In his exasperation he asked of the saint...
why he wanted to give life to a crab that was biting him again and again! The quote given by the saint surprised
this laborer. He could not believe his ears.
The saint said, when an ordinary insect... a
small animal the size of a crab could not leave his habit of biting again and again... how could he... a human
being... a saintly figure abandon his desire to save one again and again! The saint told... as a human being he
was only carrying out his duty towards all living beings!
As per the saint... it was in the habit of
crab to bite anything and it was for the saint to forgive one... save one again and again! Such a quote about
life cannot be found anywhere else other than Hinduism scriptures! The art of forgiveness... the art of
forgiving one forever is easy to preach... but difficult to practice!

past... even if we paid $1 million per second... why brood over past and mar our future!
Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism says... unless we
buried our past behind... we could not live the present meaningfully! To live the present... to enjoy our
day-to-day life... we have to bury the past... no matter what the results. The past can only be forgotten if we
forgive one and all. Forgiveness is a means to close the past forever!
To preach forgiveness is easy... to practice
very difficult! But if we have to get out of the rut of life... we have to forgive those who ill treated us in
past. We practically had no other alternative. Forgiving people does not mean becoming friends again. We need
not maintain the past relationship if we want to.
Forgiveness practically is a one-way path. If we forgive someone... does not necessarily mean the other has
World over millions of people lived life of
bondage... bonded by affiliations of past! The sooner we forget the past... better for all! By remembering

Manifesting life truly meant taking charge
of destiny forever. As per Bhagavad Gita quotes on life... we are the absolute master and controller of destiny!
