metamorphosis


metamorphosis

सम्पत्सु महतां चित्तं भवेदुत्पल कोमळम्
आपत्सु च महाशैल शिला संधातकर्कशम्


when having a comfortable and hassle free life, the great men have a heart as soft and a lotus (they are kind, considerate, enjoy  fine arts and distribute their wealth for all great purposes)

but when the danger strikes, the same heart becomes so hard that even the pounding from the greatest and biggest mountains will not break it ( it is not that they give up their benevolent ways but they muster everything at their disposal to brace themselves to meet the danger on the face  in the toughest way possible..not giving themselves up to despondency.)
