A Living GOD to millions on this earth
If only 0.0001 % of us living on this planet earth can be like Narayanan , this world would be a different story. Stop thinking of any new Narayanan and become ONE yourself and start doing just 10% of what he does.

I'm so touched
What a wonderful person. Thanks for sharing this video with us… This man, Narayanan Krishnan is indeed blessed for bring blessings to others… I'm so touched...
I was in India in Dec 2010 until early Jan 2011 and saw many poverty stricken people... This is truly a consolation.

One Important Fact...
... that needs emphasizing: this man is a Brahmin. He was raised to believe that these people should never even be touched, much less helped in so personal a manner. I merely wished to remark on this to point out just how extraordinarily special this man's rachmanus is.

The point of life
What an inspiration! This man literally broke the bonds of his cultures caste system to care and give to other people. He recognized a need and DID something about it!
Thank you Aish for highlighting this man and his mission.

May we learn to give like he is giving! A smile to others is a good way to start!

About time Indians start looking inward to start bringing change to their society, eradicating the caste system that ostrecizes one group for their colour and heritage.
Indians pride themselves in their intelligence but they have a long way to go with their prejudices and corruptions in the government. They have space mission while the people are starving.Indians who have accumulated wealth across the globe can help their own very easily. They can learn from this noble man.

Wow! What a Tzadik!
This man is a tzadik on earth!! What an incredible human being and an inspiration to us all! We should all aspire to be even 1/4 of what he is. This brought tears to my eyes and Aish should definitely write more about him! G-D bless you, Mr. Krishnan! For sure you will be sitting on G-D's shoulders in The World to Come!

This Man is a Saint
To make it his life's mission to care for the homeless, hungry, forgotten with such love is so beautiful. May HaShem bless the the work of his hands! What an example for us all.

the kind in mankind
/this man is blessed. This is beautiful. There is no "other". Perhaps it takes a profound journey of soul to come full circle, individually ad collectively to what we all should know, that we are here to care for each other. That the meaning of life is within what we do, in small and big ways to reach out. And that our reach should extend into the universe, into our beautiful environment, to those who are suffering wherever they might be.
This is beautiful. It's not enough to talk the walk. What we all need to do, is ACT, and ACT now. This is how we save the world. And, paradoxically the world has been saved, again and again, by such ongoing acts of loving kindness. If you have save one life, so it is said, you have saved a universe.
And so we must keep on doing this, again and again and again.
It's the motive force in why?
