Krishna, Shankara, Dayananda,
Krishna, Shankara, Dayananda and Vivekananda
are all worthy of admiration.
We should always be ever-ready to embrace the good qualities of others and avoid
their faults or shortcomings. No one is perfect, and to think anyone is perfect
only means we are holding on to an image. We do NOT need to imagine anyone is
perfect when we worship the one Supreme Being who is One Without a Second, and
Who is always absolutely flawless.
Krishna was a perfected Yogi;
Adi Shankara was a genius and an accomplished Yogi; Maharishi Dayananda was also
a genius and an accomplished Yogi and also a Maharishi.
All of us can learn from
the actions they did and the actions they did not do; from the things they said
and refrained from saying. However, when all is said and done, what will matter
the most is what we have realized (actualized) in our own lives. This realization
will come from direct experience, which can only come from direct practice.
