Manushya – The Human

“Manushya” in Sanskrit refers to Human. “Manas” – which means Mind, “Iisha” – meaning master. A master of the mind. All living beings have four basic survival needs: Hunger, Rest, Protection, and Reproduction. Both man and animal share this in common. Additionally the human race has evolved to express “civility” – Kindness. Compassion. Consideration. Respect. Politeness. He can also express the opposite. All of which corresponds to the “worldly” aspect of survival.

What distinguishes Manushya or human from the rest of the animal kingdom? His ability to cultivate the Mind. One who spends his entire life responding to his survival needs, is animal. Where do you stand?
