After Prithviraj Chauhan death ,the brave and patriot Rana Pratap also tried to fight the invaders till he could but that did not last.
Shivaji maharaj changed Indian history and did what no one could imagine at that time. He escaped from the prison of the Mughal Emperor himself, to become the ruler of a kingdom devoted to Dharma and the service of the people.
He Dedicated himself to Dharma. He matched cunning against cunning, courage against courage; he was one of The Wisest rulers And One of the Greatest Generals. For his foresight of establishment of one of the first large scale naval presence he is referred to as the "Father of Indian Navy".
त्यागका अर्थ वस्तुओंके त्यागसे नहीं है अपितु उनके प्रति आसक्तियों से है |
आरंभ में गुरु शिष्य के पास जो भी वस्तु है उसका त्याग करवाते हैं | और जब आसक्ति नष्ट हो जाती है तब उन्हें भरपूर देते हैं |
चूंकि छत्रपति शिवाजी महाराज को राज्य के प्रति आसक्ति नहीं थी अतः श्रीगुरु के चरणों में अर्पित की हुई राज्य, उनके श्री गुरुने उन्हें पुनः दे दी |
Sacrifice does not mean giving away all of one's belongings.
Rather It is getting rid of one's attachment to them.
In the beginning, the Guru makes the disciple sacrifice the objects in his possession.
Finally, when the attachment ceases, He showers him with plenty.
Since Shivaji Maharaj had no attachment for the kingdom,
he had offered it to Samarth Ramdas Swami
the Swamiji returned it to him.
