The Wisdom of Guruvanand

As long as we do not forgive others, they occupy rent free space in our mind.

Attitude does not care where it has been shaped or formed. Once shaped, once formed, it will either create you or destroy you.

Be a reason for someone’s happiness; not only a part of it. Be a part of someone’s sadness, never a reason for it.

Do not wait to do right and then make a decision. Make a decision and then make it right.

Faith is I know I will get what I want. Faith is not that I will get when I want

About Brahmarishis

In Hinduism, a Brahmarishi (compound of ‘Brahma’ and ‘Rishi’) is a member of the highest class of Rishis (seers or sages), especially those credited with the composition of the hymns in the Rigveda. A Brahmarishi is a sage who has understood the meaning of Brahman or has attained the highest divine knowledge (‘Brahmajnana’). Below him are the Maharishis (Great Rishis).

The Saptarishis created out of Brahma’s thoughts are perfect ‘Brahmarishis.’ They are often cited on a par with the Devas in power and piety in the Puranas.

Bhrigu, Angiras, Atri, Vishwamitra, Kashyapa, Vasishta, and Shandilya are the seven Brahmarishis.
