Thought for the Day

Diamonds lying somewhere, not discovered, not recognized, not known are cast away, are useless. Similarly, the potentialities of the human birth have to be realized, have to be known, and then put to use. So man is distinguished by the powers of the intellect. We call him Manava, one who exercises Manisha. And what is Manisha? Manisha is that which leads him to prosperity without increasing his bondages. That is the Manisha, that is the cleverness. - PP Swamiji Shri Ishwarananda Giri
