- Two Britishers were doing evil of saints in front of Swami Vivekananda, the British felt that this monk does not know English.
story – Once Swami Vivekananda was traveling by train. They were sitting in the first class compartment. Two Englishmen came and sat near him. When the British saw Vivekananda, he wondered how a monk could sit in this box.
The British were thinking that he is a saint, he will not be educated enough. We would not even know our language. Both Englishmen started doing evil of saints and saints in their language. He was saying, ‘These people who become monks, roam in the first class compartment on the money of others, these people are a burden on the earth.’ They were constantly doing evil to the sages, because they were believing that this sage is not able to understand our point, it would not be English.
When the train stopped at a station, the guard came there and Vivekanandji spoke to the guard in English. Seeing this, both British were shocked, they felt that it is speaking fluent English. He started getting embarrassed.
Both the British came to know that they were Swami Vivekananda. Both of them apologized to Swamiji and asked, ‘You know the English language, we were constantly doing evil to you, so you didn’t say anything to us. Why, so?’
Swamiji said, ‘While listening to their language while in contact with people like you, I greatly benefit from their response, my stamina and strength are enhanced. You have your own thoughts, you have revealed. My own decision is that I should not give up patience. If I were angry with you, the loss would be yours, not mine.
Learning When someone does our evil, then our patience is tested realistically. The power to bear bad things saves us from many problems.
