Jagadguru #SriSri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamiji


Jagadguru #SriSri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamiji: Sri Adi Shankaracharya Bhagavatpada has emphasized everyone must have steadfast devotion to God, shed pride and unwarranted desires, and cultivate the attitude of compassion. It would be wrong to expect to follow these teachings when one does not practice it himself. The Jagadguru pointed out many in the present days, unfortunately, are examples of the saying, “स्वयं नष्टः, परान् नाशयति” (one who has wrought doom upon himself, and then brings doom to others). The Jagadguru stated that one must instead strive to be an example of the saying, “स्वयं तीर्णः परांस्तारयति” (one who has crossed the ocean of Samsaara thus fulfilling life’s purpose, and help others to do the same).
