Gratitude for God’s Gifts–Giving Thanks

By Giriraj Swami

Story of Dadhichi Rishi

Rishis and sadhus perform tapas for the benefit of mankind and all creation. They tolerate hardships and insults without any thought of personal gain. One such rishi was Dadhichi. He willingly offered his body to save the devas.
Once a Brahmin named Vrutra became the head of the demons. He gave up his dharma – duty – of doing good to others. Instead he turned to violence and began to battle with the devas. Hence, he became known as Vrutrasur. ‘Asur’ means demon. He began to win.…
