Life is a journey of ecstasy

  1. 1. (: [J‘: ':. (:-‘: ‘”fi(i"‘ T ' [1 ’»«ii‘( cs; .< git I i in| ; i|| cum
  2. 2. {A house owner is found to be unhappy. He is very much annoyed by sleepless nights. But his pet dog is very happy. It sleeps snugly. Though the house owner possesses a lot of money, all kinds of movable and immovable properties and innumerable relatives, he has lost his peace of mind and happiness. But a dog that depends on others and doesn't possess any such properties and comforts is very happy. How is it possible? "Has the man committed more and greater sin than the dog? " This thought pierces our heart. If we start thinkin a fact flashes.
  3. 3. The pet dog doesn't ask for salary every month. It "doesn't beg for food throughout its life. It doesn't boast that it is virtuous and mighty. It doesn't search for an umbrella when it rains or for a blanket during winter season. It doesn't save the food for tomorrow. It doesn't think, "For whom do we serve or why should we serve for him? " It barks at the thief when at home or on the road side. The dog discharges its duty without expecting anyone's command. Generally animals fight among themselves for food and for breeding. Apart from this, the dogs do not feel jealous of other dogs. They don't take revenge on other dogs or they do not involve in any treacherous activities.
  4. 4. The man doesn't realize his nature. He acts as a virtuous 1man for the sake of his needs, additional comforts and pride. He derives a kind of pleasure when he accumulates properties by cheating others, when he marries a beautiful girl, when he accumulates materials that others do not have, when others feel jealous of his luxurious life, when others praise him that no one is greater than him. Man has a wrong notion that it is joyous to accumulate properties by cheating others, it is joyous to marry a beautiful girl, it is joyous to accumulate materials that others do not have, it is joyous to make others feel jealous of his luxurious life, it is joyous to hear others praise him that no one is greater than him, it is joyous to be highly qualified and it is joyous to be a higher official etc. As man has implanted the wrong notions, he has failed to understand the power of real joy and pleasure.
  5. 5. jlf we attain anything based on faults and lies the same will not last longer. The above mentioned joys and pleasures attained by false assumptions will get away from us very soon. Alright! Which is the real pleasure’? It is not possible to point out any one in particular. But it is possible to say that it is one of the pleasures. Yesterday evening casually a song was heard in the FM Radio. The song went on mentioning about joys and pleasures and it ended mentioning ''It is joyous to shed tears for others". It is selfish to cry for ourselves. It is selfless to cry for others. That only sows the seed of joy in the mind.
  6. 6. Not disturbing others is a pleasure for us and others. Ourjoy is i‘-snatched from us without our knowledge when we trouble others and destroy their peace of mind. We fail to feel the same. Vallalar withered whenever he happened to see the withered crop. The life of those who have the tendency of vallalar will always be filled with joy. Selfless service is also a kind of prayer. When we help others and when we are affectionate and obedient, there exists a healthy atmosphere. Thereby we'll get the gentle breeze which will shower the joyful cooling effect on us and others. When do we derive real pleasure? When we lead a contented life, when we act with a good aim, when we meet with a noble religious sage who wishes happiness to all, when we come across the people and leaders who rendertheir selfless service to the Nation, when we come across people who respect humanity and who love and respect all kinds of living creatures and take efforts to eradicate their troubles and finally when we get the acquaintance of people who treat the human beings equivalent to Gods and Goddesses ourjoy is multiplied.
  7. 7. ,People who renounced the worldly pleasures could get the real pleasure whereas the people who were ambitious to get gold, money, car, name and fame etc. , could not get the same. Lord Buddha could not get the real pleasure though he had a luxurious palace, a number of servants, delicious food, virtuous wife, children etc. But he could attain the enlightenment only under the Bhodhi tree. Many sages and saints who live in the hills, mountains and caves have enjoyed the fruit of real pleasure. How?
  8. 8. »Think over a little my dear brothers and sisters! Our life started in the Union of our parents. We can attain the ecstasy only at the holy feet of the God. This life of ours is a happy journey from delight to ecstasy. All the best! May God bless you all abundanfly! Courtesy: Dinamalar Pengal Malar (Ladies special) 29-10-2011
