Devdutt Pattanaik Quotes

Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Within infinite myths lies the Eternal Truth Who sees it all? Varuna has but a thousand eyes Indra, a hundred And I, only two.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Refusal to accept the flow of the world is the root of all misery.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “There is no such thing as an objective interpretation.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “We are not rational creatures who feel; we are emotional creatures who rationalize.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Mythology is a subjective truth. Every culture imagines life a certain way.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “In Greek mythology, the hero wants to be great, but the very concept does not exist in the Indian vocabulary. Yet it has become the global template. And it’s a template that won’t fit in India.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Life is like a river. You can struggle to change its course but ultimately it will go its own way. Bathe.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Arjuna, you have control over your action alone, not the fruits of your action. So do not be drawn to expectation, or inaction.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Neither Sita nor Ram let the forest erode their values. Wherever they go, they hold on to the principles of dharma. They may have left Ayodhya, but Ayodhya never leaves them.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Every human creates his own imagined version of the world, and of himself. Every human is therefore Brahma, creator of his own aham. Aham Brahmasmi, I am Brahma. Tat tvam asi, so are you. We knot our imagination with fear to create aham. Tapasya and yagna are two tools that can help us unknot the mind, outgrow fear and discover atma, our true self.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “If you don’t have imagination, you stop being human; animals don’t have imagination; Alzheimer’s is the death of imagination.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Draupadi learns that both vengeance and justice come at a price. Krishna asks her to forgive and let go. It is difficult. He holds her in his arms and gives her strength. Life is difficult and people are imperfect. Unable to cope with the vagaries of this world, everyone makes mistakes. True love is the ability to love people despite their mistakes.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Ramkrishna Paramhansa, the nineteenth-century Bengali mystic, said that the essence of The Gita can be deciphered simply by reversing the syllables that constitute Gita. So Gita, or gi-ta, becomes ta-gi, or tyagi, which means ’one who lets go of possessions.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Fear is a constant, and faith is a choice. Fear comes from karma, from faith arises dharma.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “In time, Radha became a goddess in her own right, the symbol of sacrifice, surrender and unconditional love.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Dharma is about exchange, about giving and receiving, It is about outgrowing animal instincts, outgrowing fear, discovering the ability to feed others, comfort others, enable others to find meaning.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “The crown could go to a person with the most talent. But how could ‘most talent’ be determined? So Indian society settled on age.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Mythology is a vast body of knowledge that has not been tapped.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Through her, the Ramayan reminds us that even a victim can be a winner if he or she refuses to surrender to the circumstance.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Brahmins were essentially transmitters and stewards of Vedic hymns and rituals, not its interpreters or owners. Over time, however, they used their exalted position to dominate society and claim entitlements. It was an irony of history that those who carried knowledge of how to expand the mind failed to expand their own minds, and chose the common path of domination instead.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “In Hinduism, dharma means realizing our potential: changing ourselves into the best we theoretically can be. What is that? Humans.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “From imagination comes our vision of the world, our vision of our future, and most importantly our vision of ourselves, who we are and what we want to be.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Krishna offers Arjuna two things: what he is and what he has. Arjuna chooses what Krishna is. Duryodhana is happy with what Krishna has. This divide between him and his, me and mine, what one is and what one has, is the difference between seeking the soul and being satisfied with matter.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “No event is spontaneous; it is the result of many past events. This is karma. The events in your life are the result of your past deeds, performed in this lifetime or the ones before. You alone are responsible for it.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “The Kamasutra warns that conception with women on top can alter the sexuality of the children conceived.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “As per some Vedic marriage rites, a woman is first given in marriage to the romantic moon-god, Chandra, then to the highly sensual Gandharva named Vishwavasu, then to the fire-god, Agni, who cleanses and purifies all things, and finally to her human husband. Thus, the ‘four men’ quota is exhausted. Clearly this was an attempt of society to prevent Hindu women from remarrying.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Through Karna, Vyasa reiterates that our knowledge of the world is imperfect based on perceptions and false information. We are surrounded by Kuntis who hide the truth in fear. We are surrounded by Karnas, villains who are actually brothers.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Lakshmi massages Vishnu’s feet. Is this male domination? Kali stands on Shiva’s chest. Is this female domination? Shiva is half a woman. Is this gender equality? Why then is Shakti never half a man?”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “The Ramayana has never been a tale of Ram’s life. It is a tale of how Ram lived for others. By retelling his tale, storytellers hope to inspire themselves and others to live as Ram did.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Mighty brawn is no match for a nimble brain. Let.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “This is complete, that is complete, from completeness comes completeness, when completeness is added or subtracted, it still remains complete.’ This.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Even perfection is a myth. There is no evidence of a perfect world, a perfect man or a perfect family anywhere on earth. Perfection, be it Rama Rajya or Camelot, exists only in mythology. Yet everyone craves for it. This craving inspires art, establishes empires, sparks revolutions and motivates leaders. Such is the power of myth.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Impatience is the enemy of wisdom; it propels us to jump conclusions, judge and condemn, rather than understand.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Vedas are the earliest sacred scriptures of Hinduism and are full of abstract hymns containing esoteric concepts. The Puranas were written later and use stories and characters to make those esoteric concepts more accessible.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Shiva becomes the destroyer, acquiring strength and inspiration from his consort Shakti, who is both Gauri, radiant goddess of eroticism, and Kali, dark goddess of extermination.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Krishna’s son, Samba, is portrayed in the scriptures as an irresponsible lout, perhaps to inform us that the child of a great man need not be a great man; greatness is not transmitted through the generations. Every man ultimately makes or destroys his own legacy.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “In nature, the strong overpower the weak in order to improve their chances of survival. But in culture, the strong must protect the weak. That is dharma.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Neither death nor wisdom has a full stop. There are only commas-no destinations, only waiting rooms.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “There is great joy in satisfying oneself,’ said Hanuman. ‘But there is greater joy when we satisfy ourselves by satisfying others. Still greater joy when we do not need satisfaction. And even more joy, when despite not needing satisfaction, we provide satisfaction to others.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Your suffering was repayment for the karmic debt incurred then.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “The ego is the product of imagination. It is how a human being sees himself or herself. It makes humans demand special status in nature and culture. Nature does not care for this self-image of human beings. Culture, which is a man-made creation, attempts to accommodate it.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Hanuman has no issues being Angad’s follower. This is Hanuman’s personality – always a team player, ever willing to serve, with absolutely no desire to dominate.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “We knot our imagination to fear to creat aham. Tapasya and yagna are two tools that can help us unknot the mind, outgrow fear and discover atma, our true self.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Thus while Ganesha helps devotees move from south to north, Kartikeya himself moves from north to south for the benefi t of devotees. While as Ganesha tempers materialistic cravings with spiritual insight, Murugan tempers his martial attitude with divine grace and romantic emotions. Thus the Goddess helps Shiva connect with humanity through her two sons.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “The point of existence in this dynamic, ever-changing world then was not to aspire or achieve, but to introspect.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Taken psychologically, the idea of rebirth is about having multiple opportunities to break the cycle of fear and find meaning, without ‘consuming’ anyone.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Kali is the forest. She is wild. Gauri is the garden. She is domestic. Kali stays outside the house. Gauri comes inside the house. That is why what is outside is scary and what is inside is not.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Destiny and desire, karma and kama, are the two forces that propel the world. Destiny is a reaction, an obligation that follows an action. Desire is an aspiration that forces the world to transform in a particular way. Destiny creates fate. Desire is based on free will. We have the freedom to accept life as it is or to make it the way we want it to be. That is what makes us Manavas or humans.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “As Indra’s wife, Lakshmi is known as Sachi and Indra is known as Sachin.”
Devdutt Pattanaik Quote: “Yagna is the outer journey, while yoga is the inner journey that Arjuna has to undertake.”
