“One day, Shakrendra, while talking in the assembly of gods, stated, ‘There is no person braver, more courageous, and stronger than Prince Varhaman.’ A skeptic god jokingly said that Shakrendra was exaggerating and he proceeded to test Prince Vardhaman.” “The god who had come to test Vardhaman also joined the group in the disguise of a boy. He transformed himself into a giant. With the Prince on his back, the god flew in the sky. But the Prince was undaunted, hit the giant with his mighty fist.” Now, Indra wanted to test Him as well. Now, in the school. “The Brahman asked some complex questions on grammar. The teacher could not reply. Little Vardhaman, without hesitating, gave correct and appropriate answers. The teacher stared dumbfounded at the little boy. The Brahman smiled and said, ‘You are not aware that sun of knowledge of this era is present before your very eyes as Prince Vardhaman. He is the future Lord Mahavir Swami, the omniscient.’” The more determined you are to help humankind or help all beings, the more tests you will have to undergo. And not everyone passes the test. That’s why we don’t have many Masters. Because some tests are very, very severe, above human endurance and intellect and capacity.
