DAYANANDA SARASWATHI

The Sanyasi Who Knew No Fear

Dayananda was a fearless sanyasi Whatever he believed to be the truth he spoke out without fear. Once a priest Shulbred by name, threatened him saying, "It you criticize Christianity, you will have to go to jail.' Dayananda, replied at once, "My friend, was not Jesus Christ crucified for speaking the truth? But I fear no one to speak the truth."

Dayananda used to point out flaws in other religions as he pointed out the flaws in Hinduism. Because of this, he had to incur the wrath of the followers of other religions several times. While he was giving a discourse at a Jodhpur meeting, the relative of a Diwan there placed his hand on the sword and said,

"Be careful, don't criticize our religion." The Diwan even said, "You should be cut to pieces."

Dayananda said, "I shall point out defects wherever I find them. I am not a rabbit to be frightened by the cries of jackals like you;" and he pin-pointed the flaws in his religion, too.
