Devotees: Hanuman

                                                                  Q. Recently I read this quote attributed to Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura purported to be published in the Harmonist (Sri Sajjana Tosani, Interview with Professor Johans, head of the Department of Philosophy, St. Xaviers College):

                                                                  Q. I always thought that the spiritual and dharmic role of a person is to be calm and never get angry, under any circumstance, and sacrifice one's own life before resorting to violence. However, in the Mahabharata, Krishna keeps saying so many times that it is a coward that backs down from a war. At the same time, He says that war is inevitable when all other options are exhausted. However, I don't understand this because whenever He says this, the war is referring to protecting one's honor.

                                                                  Q. I would like to really understand what humility is. Can you please explain the same to me?
