Below is a most Beautiful incident in the life of Jagadguru Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati Swamigal or Maha Periyavaal who was the 68th Jagadguru in the Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam..

A family went to have the darshan of Maha Periyavaal. Along with them, they took one of their family friends who lived in the USA for some decades. The friend did not have any great faith in our religion, system and especially the monks wearing the saffron; he went along with him with utterly non-interested to meet Him. He was under the impression that Maha Periyavaal was a fundamentalist, an uneducated monk. This NRI had no great respect at all for Him. Not only that, he uttered such inauspicious things about Him, 'what does He know? Does He know English?'.

There was a big throng of devotees at the Mutt and the family was standing in a decent distance from Him. As usual, Maha Periyavaal saw this family with His graceful eyes, and called all of them near to Him.

They all went near Him, the friend too.

After all the usual courteous enquiry towards the family, the Master looked at the NRI friend and asked about his details, including his name, whereabouts, his predecessors, where he is working etc etc.

Then He asked, 'you are born in India, and you know Tamil; your wife was also born in India and should know the mother tongue. When you two converse will it be in Tamil or English?'

The friend replied 'We never use Tamil at home, we use only English. The same goes for the kids also.'

Then Maha Periyavaal asked, 'before speaking, you may have to think and conceive the sentence. Is the thought process in Tamil or English?'

The friend replied, 'That too in English only'.

Some minutes later, an old lady came to have Maha Periyavaal Darshan.

Maha Periyavaal looked at the NRI person and said, 'This old lady is now very poor, but once upon a time she was very rich. But even after she lost all the materialistic wealth her devotion towards the Mutt, Acharya and me has never changed even a bit. Could you please tell me what is the English word which will describe this unflinching devotion, which can't be changed by external situations? I would like to know.'

The man was flummoxed. He thought and thought for a while but did not know that word.

Maha Periyaval smiled and told him, 'please take your time and let me know'.

Even after some time, he could not come up with the required word.

Then Swamiji said, 'Can I suggest one word? Could you please confirm whether the same can convey this meaning? EQUIPOISED'.

The man was spellbound and fell on Maha Periyavaal's Feet to Pardon him for his ego..

                        A collection of beautiful quotes

Life itself is but the shadow of death, and souls departed but the shadows of the living.

Though it be in the power of the weakest arm to take away life, it is not in the strongest to deprive us of death.

Where life is more terrible than death,it is then the truest valour to want to live.

Be able to be alone. Lose not the advantage of solitude, and the society of thyself.

All things are artificial, for nature is the art of God.

As reason is a rebel to faith, so passion is a rebel to reason.

In the transmission of human culture, people always attempt to replicate, to pass on to the next generation the skills and values of the parents, but the attempt always fails because cultural transmission is geared to learning, not DNA.

Old Jungle Sayings



The following are some of the Old Jungle Sayings that have become a tradition in Phantom comics. A story cannot be a Phantom story without these sayings appearing more than once in a while. These sayings are in many ways responsible for the mystifying aura seen in Phantom stories.



Sayings about the Phantom:

        The Phantom is rough with rough-necks.

        When the Phantom is rough, he is very rough.

        The Phantom has a thousand eyes and a thousand ears.

        Call the Phantom anywhere, and he will hear.

        Go into the jungle and call: the Phantom hears.

        The Phantom can be a dozen places at once.

        The Phantom moves as silently as a fog.

        The Phantom moves as silently as the jungle cat.

        The Phantom moves on cat's paws.

        Great cat is quick, the Phantom is quicker.

        The Phantom moves faster than a great cat, with the power of a charging bull elephant.

        The Phantom strikes like a thunderbolt but moves softer than a stalking great cat.

        When the Phantom strikes, lightning stands still.

        The Phantom moves faster than lightning flash.

        The Phantom moves faster than the eye can see.

        As for shooting, the Phantom can knock the flea off the ear of a warthog at 100 paces without hurting the beast.

        The Phantom has the strength of ten tigers.

        Phantom made of rock.

        When the jungle sleeps, the Phantom wakes.

        There are times when the Phantom leaves the jungle and walks the streets of the town like an ordinary man.

        You never find the Phantom, he finds you.

        When the Phantom asks, you answer.

        No man can refuse the voice of the Phantom.

        The Phantom freezes your blood, makes cowards out of strong men.

        The voice of the Phantom turns blood into ice.

        The voice of the angry Phantom freezes a tiger's blood.

        When the Phantom is angry, tiger's blood chills.

        When the Phantom is angry, the lion trembles.

        When the Phantom is angry, the jungle shakes.

        When the Phantom is angry, his blows sound like thunder.

        The Phantom's fists dart like a bee, hit like a bull elephant.

        The Phantom's steel hands can break men like straws.

        When the Phantom scares them, they stay scared.

        Better to stare into the tiger's eyes than into the cold eyes of the angry Phantom.

        The Phantom's fury is like a volcanic explosion.

        Furious Phantom is a sight to behold.

        Pirates to Phantom, like red flag to bull.

        Only a fool crosses the Phantom.

        Never take aim at the Phantom.

        The Phantom has the wisdom of elephants.

        The Phantom is a man of few words but wiser than Solomon.

        Where the Phantom is, the law's long arm reaches even to the halls of princes.

        The Phantom will never refuse a challenge.

        The Phantom's life is a lonely one.

        In China it is said, man who looks on Phantom's naked face must surely die.

        He who sees the Phantom's face, dies a horrible death.

        Man saw Phantom's face, flesh fell out of the man's bones, all at once.

You either like it or you don't like it.
There is no in-between.
This is a Western world concept.
 
"Adjusting" is a lovely term we often use.
It implies you don't like it on the inside, but you pretend to like it on the outside...to keep the outside world in harmony.
But is the inside world in harmony? Only you can tell.
This is essentially a part of our Indian culture.
 
Now what happens when both these worlds meet?
 
Isn't it strange when we see an Indian being able to easily get rid of his Indian accent, change his Indian clothing, "modify" his Indian values...but he is unable to get rid of that classical "Indian nod"?
It comes as a reflex in the most desperate situations.
 
Indian nod? What "Indian nod"?
Any Westerner would instantly tell you.
It is that particular headshake Indians use in a wobble (or bobble) manner...often accompanied by a silent smile.
The headshake is a mixture of a nod and a shake.
 
The Westerner would ask "I am confused. Is he saying "yes"? Or is he saying "no"? Or is he saying "I don't know"?
The answer is often translated, "He is saying he totally agrees with you...he is very happy with what you are doing...see - he is even smiling on the outsideSmile too"
And the Westerner walks away happily.
But we Indians who just translated those words know better, don't we?
Most likely, the Indian man to please him had smiled, but on the inside...he probably would have walked away with an Confused expression in his mind.
Is this called "adjusting"?
Is this an Indian concept in the Western world?
 
Hard to tell, because I am an eye witness to this incident.

This is my personal favourite Phantom saying.
It spooked me every time I read the comics or I watched the cartoons as a little kid.
I was so scared I wouldn't want to turn off the lights when I slept at night!
 
I love how an imaginary character or tale can be so powerful and yet so scary at the same time...
I especially love a child's innocent fear towards such characters.
Even fear in its purest, innocent form of a child reacting to such stories is a joy to watch.
 
And now I'm grown-up.
 
Aren't grown-ups so boring?

snippet from a converstion between chaplin and einstien

Albert Einstein said, "What I admire most about your art, is its universality. You do not say a word, and yet ... the world understands you."
 
- "It's true", replied Chaplin, "But your fame is even greater: The world admires you, when nobody understands you."
