#AdiShankaracharya Math, Shringeri in #Karnataka

A young Adi Shankara traversed across the western ghats searching for a place to set up an ashram for his disciples. He reached present day Shringeri besides river Tunga after walking for miles.

#India The midday sun was at its scorching best! On the bank of the river, was a snake, with its hood raised over a frog. It appeared as if the snake was about to devour the frog, but a closer look revealed that the snake was, in fact, protecting the frog from the harsh sun!

10 lessons I learn from #Ganesha! A thread!

Small Eyes!

#1: No matter what the obstacles in life, they should never cloud our vision, the aims should never dwindle, those hopes that harness our dreams should never die.

@BharatTemples_ @rightwingchora Large Ears!

#2: Keep ears open to the realities of life and listen to your inner voice. Listening makes us humble in a way that we develop the ability to accept cases put forward by others.
