1n On #GaneshaChaturthi I want you to ponder on why we celebrate & worship the elephant. On one hand they’re the cutest, smartest & most affable animals you’ll meet. OTOH they are fearsome when angry & quick to attack. No natural predator dares mess with them
2n This shows you that calmness & affability are great qualities when you’re strong & requires frequent demonstrations of strength. This is something India has forgotten & we use our passivity to hide our weakness. Nobody respects the weak. Now look at the elephant’s trunk
3n it is an exquisite tool - blunt enough to uproot a tree & yet delicate enough to pick & tear a single blade of grass. It has power, yet it has the wisdom to use this wisely and appropriately. In that sense the elephant is the distillate of Shankaracharya’s VivekaChudamani
