You may have seen this, or other clips of this rare hero's work circulating around the internet, Facebook and CNN. His name is Narayan Krishnan. He has been at this for a quite a while now (since 2002), and has fed, cared for, and freely given of himself to the needy in his community every single day since then..
He was 20 years old with everything going for him. He had even passed up a lucrative job in Switzerland as a chef when he had an experience that he calls his "defining moment"..
As he puts it:
In June 2002, Krishnan witnessed his life-changing event - He saw an old man suffering from acute hunger and eating his own human waste. As the old man ate the food given to him, he held Krishnan's hand, giving the very real sensation of a powerful energy. This triggered an experience of inner happiness and fulfillment Krishnan had never felt before.
Since then he has worked tirelessly and without a break, serving 1.5 million meals to the hungry, destitute, uncared for, mentally ill, elderly, sick, and helpless folks in his community. And not only food, but love. Clothing. Hair cuts and shaves. And dignity.
Anyways, his videos are out in full force again this holiday season as they always are this time of year.
This man is a true hero if ever there was one. One line he says that gets me everytime is;
"Just give". "Feel the joy of giving"..it's so simple and yet so true.
