Dear Children of this Holy Nation -
Third Talk - 14
Sacrificing oneself for the good of others has always been considered as a great virtue in Hinduism. One of the greatest examples in the Puranas is that of king Rantideva. He was the son
of Sankriti and belonged to the Chandravamsha or Lunar race. He had performed many Yajnas or Vedic sacrifices. Once he was doing severe austerities in a forest along with his family. As a
part of this, he fasted for 48 days. on the 49th day he received divine food, just enough for him and his family.
As the family was getting ready to partake of the food, a few hungry guests came one after the other. Rantideva gave away all the food including the meagre drinking water. Then these guests, who were none other than the Trimurtis— Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva—appeared before him as they were well pleased and asked what boon he wished. Rantideva paid them humble obeisance, but did not ask for any boon! The Gods then blessed him and his family with the highest spiritual wisdom.
