About Me

ABOUT ME

I believe I'm easygoing, sometimes shy and I am definitely retarded. I'm not really a night guy, what I like to do the most is to read a kickass book, listen to some kickass music - Bob Marley is the man! -, ride my bike, go hiking, get lost somewhere..

If you want to know, this is a very important story to me:

One of the stories of the Hindu mithology is about the time when Vishnu (One of the most powerful gods) descended from his heaven as a dwarf avatar called Vamana to help other gods to restore their authority, as it had been taken by Mahabali.

the story of King Mahabali is that he was a generous man and engaged in severe austerities and penance and won the praise of the world. This praise, from his courtiers and others, led him to think of himself as the greatest person in the world. He believed he could help anyone donating whatever they asked. Eventhough benevolent, he became pompous of his activities and forgot that he was only a human.

This was a test to see if you are really interested in me and actually reading my profile instead of just "shooting" couchsurf request to everybody. To show that you have read all of this, write down in your request "I like to move it move it". And if you want to know the rest of the story, here it is:

Vamana, the dwarf avatar of Vishnu, went to the king Mahabali to make a simple request: the space of three paces of land. Mahabali, seing that Vamana was a dwarf with such little legs consented, against the warning of his guru.

Vamana then revealed his identity and enlarged to gigantic proportions to stride over the three worlds. He stepped from heaven to earth with the first step, from earth to the netherworld with the second. With only two steps Vishnu covered the whole universe and King Mahabali realized that he wouldn't be able to fulfill his promise, so he offered his own head for the third pace. Vishnu then placed his foot and gave the king immortality for his humility.

PHILOSOPHY

I was going to write "who eats with the mouth shut, eats twice", but I think I'll just keep my mouth shut.
