story – The freedom fighter was Acharya Vinoba Bhave’s mother Rukmini Bai. His mother was a very liberal-minded woman. She used to keep needy students in her house. They also used to make their own food and drink arrangements, as well as any help they could get.
Rukmini Bai never discriminated between her children and the needy children living at home. Rukmini Bai never distinguished herself. She used to give fresh and hot food to all the children everyday. The cold, remaining stale loaves were not fed to any student.
One day Vinoba said to his mother, ‘Mother, I always hear from you that God is one. Resides within everyone That is why no one should be discriminated against, but I have seen, mother, you discriminate. You give very fresh loaves to the students whom you have kept in the house, but when the loaves are left, stale, then you give those loaves to me. Why such discrimination? ‘
Mother said to her son, ‘Son, you are right. I do discrimination because I still have attachment. I see the divine in those children, but you see only my son. The day I start seeing the divine in you, from that day you will also get hot and fresh loaves. ‘
Learning – A mother through her son has given us this message that every human has divine, but we discriminate, it is ours and it is alien. One should try to remove this discrimination. When we understand that there is God in every human being, then our dealings with others will change. We will deal with humans in the same way that we do with God.
