AMBAREESHA

When reason is blinded...

Even sages and learned men sometimes have their reason blinded. Whatever one might be, one should always be alert. When one loses one's wisdom, one might commit any blunder. Narada and Parvata were sages and learned men. Even they, overtaken by desire, tried to cheat and insult each other. Sages of such eminence thoughtlessly tried to harm others. Man should always be alert, keep his mind controlled, and do things thoughtfully.

With purity of heart and unshaken faith in the right path he had taken to,Ambareesha deserved to be called the noblest. Do you remember the words of Vishnu to Durvaasa?" Strength comes from penance and knowledge. It should be used for doing well to others. If it is misused for satisfying one's ego or for harming others, the harm will turn back upon the user him.'

Durvaasa was no ordinary person. As the story itself reveals, his penance and spiritual power were astonishing. But even he, a great sage, because of his short temper and hasty nature, had to undergo suffering. At last he was to be saved only by Ambareesha. In spite of all these happenings, Ambareesha's mindremained immaculate and free from anger and hatred ' Thus we see the virtues such as purity of heart, devotion to God, and faithfulness shine forth in the story of Ambareesha.
