He showed people that there was no necessity to leave the family and become a Sannyasin to lead a divine life of purity and sanctity.

It is compassion, the most gracious of virtues, Which moves the world

The height of wisdom, it is said, Is not to return ill for ill.
Make foes of bowmen if you must, Never of penmen
