👉 Transformation of Ashok, Angulimal and Shraddhananda

🔶 The Divine blessing comes in the form of a motivation for following the noble path. The blessing manifests itself in the form of a radical transformation in a persons, nature, likings, and attitudes.

🔷 Emperor Ashok conquered the great kingdom of Kalinga at the cost of large scale violence. The success obtained through bloodshed and destruction did not give him peace of mind. Buddha's preaching transformed Ashok totally. From a blood-thirsty lusty king he became the messenger of love and peace and donated all his wealth for the mission of spreading the spiritual way of life.

🔶 Angulimal was a cruel dacoit, who used to rob people, cut off their fingers and wore garlands made of his victims' fingers. When Budha's divine love showered upon him, there was an amazing change. Angulimal became Buddha's disciple and devoted himself to the cause of spreading spirituality.

🔷 As a youth Swami Shraddhananda was following the dirty path of promiscuity. He was also addicted to gambling, alcohol and meat. He was a spoilt son of a police officer. One night he returned home very late from a prostitute and started vomiting. His wife was a very pious lady. She washed him, changed his clothes and put him to bed. When he woke up he asked her, "Did you have your dinner?" The pious wife replied, "As my husband I see the image of God in you. How can I eat without offering you dinner first?" This incident shook him from inside, that night he completely transformed and eventually became a great divine leader of the Arya Samaj.
