Geeta Maa's Sanyasa - compared to renunciation of Bhuddha
I remember that Mahatma Budha also did the same action and became a Sanyasi renunciating the kingdom, wealth and home life. In both case there might be a difference of the degree, but there is no difference of the kind. In action and decision of Geeta Maa to renunciate and leave home life as might as that of the Lord Budha himself.
Mahatma Budha had rightly said to Ashoka, O Ashoka despite of being the mighty king , despite of your limitless wealth and Great kingdom, you are quite a poor man, you are quite empty within yourself - your innerself, you can offer nothing to me, you are simply a beggar king, whereas after renunciating the kingdom am only a beggar in the eyes of the people. But despite of being a Bhikhshuk I am also prosperous within myself and I can grant you every thing that you ask me. In that sense I am the most properous beggar.
And Ashok was so much impressed by this that he laid down his sword in the feet of Lord Bhuddha and became his disciple. Later on what Ashok did for the spread of Bhudhism is well known to everybody who has read his history.
Only the great men and great minds can take great decisions. When they have to decide, they became as tough as the thunderbolt. But when they are kind, benevolent and merciful their hearts asre as delicate as the finest flowers. That is the quality of the gentlemen.
By and by what the Swamiji used to say came to be realized. After Geea Maa shifted her head quaters to the temple, the construction of the temple work progressed by leaps and bounds. Many people became devotees of the temple and worked day and night for the development of the temple on all the fronts.
