An inspiring story of Lord Rama and a squirrel

When lord Rama was building a bridge with rocks to go to Lanka to resque Sita, his wife. The king of Lanka, Ravana has disguised as a beggar and kidnapped mother Sita.

The big powerful monkey soldiers of Sugrib along with hanuman were carrying rocks of thousand kilos and building the Setu or bridge. There was also a squirrel which is carrying small pebbles of hundred grams each. All the monkey soldiers laughed at the squirrel at his so little amount of contribution. But the squirrel did not bother and carried on.

At one moment Lord Rama noticed the squirrel which was laughed and make fun by the soldiers. He call the squirrel and patted its back. And he declared that , ” Every little contribution matters. The squirrel is doing more than the monkey soldiers were doing.” At this the soldiers were very surprised as they clearly carrying more weighted rocks for the bridge.

Then with a smile the Lord replied, ” Look, you soldiers can carry much more weight than you are now carrying which is only 30% of your capacity. But the squirrel can carry only fifty grams, he is carrying but hundred grams. 200% of his capacity. Then who is doing more work? And only with these small pebbles we can fill the gapes between the big rocks, so every contribution matters.”

Motivation and inspiration

Inspirational Story, motivational story, success

Life is what we make it. It is nothing less and nothing more. Imagination is the main force behind every innovation and creativity. Today, in the twenty first century we have an unlimited opportunity to cultivate and give physical reality to our imagination. How wondrous thing, the imagination is. Whatever thing you may imagine in the world today, it is only a reality of tomorrow. There is nothing simply impossible now a day. Look at the discoveries like mobile, internet, and aeroplane! What about the renowned scientist Albert Einstein and his discovery of theory of relativity! These are only some small examples of the power of imagination.

                                                               Today, our limitation to thrive limits to the use and development of our imagination. Our mind is still not fully developed and we have just learnt to use our imagination. There is lot to learn and imagine the unimaginable things which will be a reality for the coming days. Look at the billion dollar empire built by J. K. Rowling, the author of ‘Harry potter’. She did not work hard physically but everything she done is a mental work of imagination. It came to her in her in a train visit through imagination. What an imagination can’t do!

                                                               DESIRE, is the thing which is the most important faculty for you to understand in order to imagine. What is your desire? Do you want to acquire tremendous wealth? Are you going to be the next bestseller or business tycoon? It only depends upon your desire which will compel you to use imagination. Desire is thought impulse! Thought impulses are forms of energy. This is the same energy the nature use to create this earth and every material form of this universe, including the body and brain in which the thought impulses function.

                                                               The entire universe is consists of two elements- matter and energy as far science has been able to determine. And through the combination of energy and matter, everything is created which we can understand for stars, asteroids and even himself, the human race.

                                                                Nature has a secret. It has a secret through which we can grow and success in our life no matter what comes against us. The ‘secret’ is but not a ‘secret’. Nature itself advertises it openly which we can find in every blade of grass and everything it builds around us.

                                                               Imagine how a tiny cell so small that it is very hard to look even with naked eyes, slowly converted into the HUMAN being now reading this post. So, the conversion of desire into its physical equivalent is, certainly, no more miraculous! Therefore, imagine the things you desire to acquire. Imagine which no one has imagined before. Cultivate it with desire and patience and there will be no stopping for you to achieve success.

The true sacrifice that will shock your conscience

Inspirational stories, Motivational stories

What is sacrifice mean to you? what is the most important thing you will sacrifice for others? Sacrifice brings happiness, pure happiness and a state of peaceful mind. Here is a story of complete self-sacrifice to enlighten you…

                                                                                  After the battle of Kurushetra five Pandava brothers performed a great sacrifice and made very large gifts to the poor. all people expressed amazement at the greatness and richness of sacrifice, and said that such a sacrifice the world had never seen before. But, after the ceremony, there came a little mongoose; half his body was golden and the other half was brown; and he began to roll on the sacrificial hall. He said to those around, ” You are all liars; this is no sacrifice.”  “What!” they exclaimed, “you say this is no sacrifice; do you not know how money and jewels were poured out to the poor and everyone became rich and happy? This is the most wonderful sacrifice any man ever performed.” But the mongoose said, “There was once a little village, and in it there dwelt a poor Brahmin with his wife, his son, and his son’s wife. They were very poor and lived on small gifts made  to them for preaching and teaching.

                                                                                There came in that land a three years’ famine, and the poor Brahmin suffered more than ever. At last when the family had starved for days, the father luckily could brought little barley flour, which he had been fortunate enough to obtain, and he divided it into four parts, one for each member of the family. They prepared it for their meal, and just they were about to eat there was a knock at the door. The father opened it, and there stood a guest. Now in India a guest is a sacred person; he is a God for the time being, and must be treated as such. So the poor Brahmin said, ‘Come in, sir, you are welcome.’ He set before the guest his own portion of food, which the guest quickly ate and said, Oh sir you have killed me; I have been starving for ten days, and this little bit has but increased my hunger.’ Then the wife said to her husband, ‘give him my share’; but the husband said ‘not so.’  The wife however insisted , saying, ‘ Here is a poor man and it is our duty as householders to see that he is fed, and it is my duty as wife to give him my portion, seeing that you have no more to offer him.’ Then she gave her portion to the guest,z which he ate, and said he was still burning with hunger. So the son said, ‘Take my portion also, it is the duty of a son to help his father to fulfill his obligations.’  The guest ate that, but remained still unsatisfied; so the son’s wife gave him her portion also. That was sufficient, and the guest departed, blessing them. That night those four people died of starvation.

                                                                                                         The mongoose continued, a few granules of that flour had fallen on the floor, and when I rolled my body on them, half of it became golden, as you see. Since then I have been travelling all over the world, hoping to find another sacrifice like that, but nowhere have I found one; nowhere else the other half of my body been turned into gold. That is why I say this is no sacrifice.”
