The following is taken from a Sanskrit Shloka. (A Shloka is a couplet or a small poem in Sanskrit)
A Destroyer is always considered as mightier than everyone else; however, a Savior is even more great than a destroyer — this has been explained so well here.
Once Prince Siddhartha (Gautam Buddha) was walking around the royal garden. Suddenly a wounded swan fell to the ground where Prince Siddhartha was standing. The heart of the kind Prince bled for the bird. He ran forward and picked up the swan.He pulled out the arrow that had pierced the delicate body of the bird and treated the swan.
Just then Prince Devdatta, who was cousin brother of Prince Siddhartha, arrived there. He very rudely demanded that the swan was his and it should be handed over to him. Prince Siddhartha refused to give the petrified bird.
Both the princes could not resolve the argument and they went to the King and each represented his case. Then the king ordered that the swan should be set free. Whoever he goes to, the swan would be his. The swan of course chose Prince Siddhartha, that is, the man who later attained Enlightenment and came to be known as Gautam Buddha.
This is a great example that proves – Kindness, mercy and love gives you infinite power; a power that is far more greater and nobler than all the might in the world.
