Echo

Just read this story on my Facebook Memories. It’s so true. Let’s hear Echoes of love,compassion,courage,wisdom and never say die attitude.

A son and his father were walking on the mountains.
Suddenly, his son falls, hurts himself and screams:
” AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!”
To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain:
” AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!”
Curious, he yells: ” Who are you” He receives the answer: ” Who are you”
Angered at the response, he screams: ” Coward!” He receives the answer: ” Coward!”
He looks to his father and asks: ” What’s going on”
The father smiles and says: ” My son, pay attention.”
And then he screams to the mountain: ” I admire you!”
The voice answers: ” I admire you!”
Again the man screams: “You are a champion!” The voice answers: ” You are a champion!”
The boy is surprised, but does not understand. Then the father explains: ” People call this ECHO, but really this is LIFE.
It gives you back everything you say or do. Our life is simply a reflection of our actions.
If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart.
If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence.
This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life ; Life will give you back everything you have given to
it.”
YOUR LIFE IS NOT A COINCIDENCE. IT’S A
REFLECTION OF YOU ACTION ! 
No one in this world is pure and perfect. If you avoid people for their mistakes, you will be alone in this world .So judge less and love more.

World always say – Find good people & leave bad ones.
But God says, Find the good in people and ignore the bad in them. Because No one is born perfect.!

What goes around, Comes Around

​People ask me why do good, when all we receive is bad.. Here is the answer?
A 6 yr old boy was in the market with his 4 yr old sister. Suddenly the boy found that his sister was lagging behind.
He stopped and looked back. His sister was standing in front of a toy shop and was watching something with great interest.
The boy went back to her and asked, “Do you want something ?” The sister pointed at the doll. The boy held her hand and like a responsible elder brother, gave that doll to her. The sister was very very happy…
The shopkeeper was watching everything and getting amused to see the matured behaviour of the boy…
Now the boy came to the counter and asked the shopkeeper, “What is the cost of this doll, Sir !”
The shopkeeper was a cool man and had experienced the odds of life. So he asked the boy with a lot of love & affection, “Well, What can you pay ?”
The boy took out all the shells that he had collected from sea shore, from his pocket and gave them to the shopkeeper. The shopkeeper took the shells and started counting as if he were counting the currency. Then he looked at the boy.The boy asked him worriedly, “Is it less?”
The shopkeeper said,” No,No… These are more than the cost. So I will return the remaining.” Saying so,he kept only 4 shells with him and returned the remaining.
The boy, very happily kept those shells back in his pocket and went away with his sister.
A servant in that shop got very surprised watching all these. He asked his master, “Sir ! You gave away such a costly doll just for 4 shells ???”
The shopkeeper said with a smile, “Well, for us these are mere shells.

But for that boy, these shells are very precious. And at this age he does not understand what money is, but when he will grow up, he definitely will. And when he would remember that he purchased a doll with the Shells instead of Money, he will remember me and think that world is full of Good people.

It will help him develop a positive attitude and he too in turn will feel motivated to be Good.”
Mind Mantra – 

Whatever emotion you infuse into the world, it will further spread. If you do good, goodness will spread. If you do bad, negativity will spread.

Realize you are a very powerful source of energy. 

Your good or bad will come back to you magnified. Not in the ways you want it, and probably not in the ways you can understand it. But it will come back.
Do Good Anyway  😊😊

The Monastery

​One day, a young boy came into the monastery and asked the Chief Monk, to give him some work and also food.
The Chief Monk asked him: What have you read? What work can you do? What do you know?
The boy replied: I have not read in school. I have no proficiency in any work excepting some stray jobs like washing food plates,cleaning up the cottage etc., I do not know anything else.
The Chief Monk asked Are you sure you do not know anything else?
The young boy replied: Oh, yes, Sir, now I remember.

I can play good Chess
The Chief Monk said: Oh that’s good. Now I shall test you in your game.

He asked another monk to come with chess board and coins and asked a table to be placed so that the game could start.
Before start of the game, the Chief Monk said: Now see, I have a sword on my hand. If any one is defeated, his nose will be severed
The boy became nervous. However, without any other way to go, he agreed.
The game started. Initially, the boy made some mistakes in moves. His position on the board became almost hopeless.
He then concentrated completely on the game and improved the position to a winning level. 
Then he looked at the monk sitting opposite and playing. He was not quite nervous but obviously disturbed a little.
The boy then thought, 

“I am a useless fellow in life. Nothing will change the world if I lose the game and lose my nose.
But this monk, is well read person, doing meditation and is sure to attain Buddha Hood Why should he lose?
So the young boy deliberately made a wrong move, so that the monk sitting opposite could take advantage and win the game !
The Chief Monk suddenly flashed his sword on the table. All the coins flew into different directions.
He then said: The game is over. Oh boy you are IN. You will be with us in the monastery hereafter.
The boy did not understand.
The Chief Monk explained: 

“I did not ask you to play chess to find out your caliber in the game. But I was looking for two essential qualities that are necessary for Self realization.
One is *Maha Prajna*. The Great Awareness. I found that in you. When your game became positionally bad, you put your entire concentration and attention on the game and improved your game.

This is Maha Prajna.

 

The second is *Maha Karuna* – The Great Compassion. I found that also in you. When your opponent was about to lose the game, you looked at him with great compassion and deliberately made a wrong mistake so that he could win.
These two qualities are adequate to do sadhana and make the life *Meaningful*.

*YOU ARE IN.*
Life isn’t about winning or losing there is nothing to win and nothing to lose.
You can at best enjoy or suffer your limited time called *Life* but enjoyment or suffering is also only a figment of your imagination.
Going beyond enjoyment, suffering, winning or losing is the path that few choose to walk.
Win or Lose… Let’s have a great life🙏
