Mahidasa was denied the privilege of sitting in the lap of his father. Itara, the mother, who was perhaps from the potter community noticed the sad plight of her son and prayed to her Ista Devata I e, Goddess Earth, who appeared in a divine form, placed Mahidasa in a celestial seat and imparted unrivalled Wisdom.
Thus was born, out of the potter Mahidasa, the Proletarian Rsi, the Sage of the Labourers, and Son of the soil Seer Aitareya, who attained God-hood and authored this scripture of the common-man, and sang the song of Hindu culture form a hut of the slum.
Even the creator is not free to create a world as He likes. We with our actions-known and unknown, conscious and unconscious-are making the blue-prints of our future. The Lord is but a contractor who executes our plans, as we give it to Him, asserts Svami Chinmayananda.
