::- STRANGE IS THE DELUSION
OF IGNORANCE -::
::- AS THE SON, SO THE FATHER -::


Two friends were conversing. One said “Women always criticize their husbands and that is not good.” The second one said, “Look at me. My husband is lazy stupid and talkative, but I never decry him.”
Even while saying that which should not be said, some people do not realise what they are doing. This is the delusion of ignorance.


 


A gardener saw a boy stealing mangoes. He said “Get down! I will take you to your father.
Where is he?”
“Look here. The man on that mango tree is my father.”
If the father is treading the path of wrong doing, what is the surprise in finding the son following suit? Sons follow their father’s footsteps.


::- LOOK INTO WORDS -::
 

::-THE RESULT OF SUPER INTELLIGENCE -::


Said the mother to her son, “son, you are the light of my life.” “Then why do you switch on the lights at night, “asked the son.
The person who understands only the word, not its inner meaning or its essence turns sense into nonsense.


 
Near the town was a beautiful garden. It had a notice which read- PLUCKING FLOWERS IS PROHIBITED. A little child came there and pulled some saplings from their roots. The gardener saw and admonished him, “What are you doing? Can you not read this notice.”
“I have read all that is written, “said the boy. “It is written here that I should not pluck flowers. I have not plucked them. You are blaming me unnecessarily.
Those who argue logically and work only with their brain may follow rules in letter but not in spirit... therefore they impede progress.


::- LETHARGY- THE BIGGEST ENEMY -::
 

::-THE GARB OF WEAKNESS-::

Once during the rainy season, the guru and his pupil were sleeping. Turning to his side, the guru told his student, “Go outside and see if it is raining.”
The lazy pupil reluctant to get up suggested that they touch the dog and see. “If he is wet it must be raining and if he is dry, it must have stopped raining, “he said.
After sometime the guru said, “”Son, it is will into the night. I am not able to sleep. The light of the lamp is disturbing me, go put it off,”
Cover your face with your cloth. Then the light will not disturd you and you will be able to sleep will.”
After sometine, a strong gush of wind blew the door open. The teacher said, “Get up! Go, close the door, it is cold.” The pupil, in his sleep, stretched his leg and pushed the door shut. But another gust of wind threwit open again. “Fasten the latch, “said the guru.
“ I have done three jobs, why do you not do one too?” Lethargy is the greatest enemy. This one thing is enough to swerve one away from duty.
 
The father told the son, “You have failed in history. Looks like you did not study with concentration.”
The son answered, “Father, the examiner asks questions of that time period when I was not even born.”
It is easy to accept one’s failures. When this trait combines with ignorance, what cannot happen. Lack of humility, insubordination, indiscipline, disrespect, and indifference to duty are same of the attributes that begin to take shape.

::- TALKATIVENESS-::
 

::-THE VALUE OF REFLECTION-::

A student said, “My mother is so learned that she can talk on any subject.”
Another said, “My mother keeps talking all the time even without a subject.” Lose talk has many forms. Not to talk at all is not good. To talk too much is also not good. The best is controlled and deliberate speech.





 
The artist made the portrait of a beautiful woman. After sometime the picture was placed in an exhibition. A rich man bought it for ten thousand rupees. He was coming out with it when he saw a poor woman begging. The man shooed her away. The woman looked at the picture in his hand and asked, “How much was it for?”
“Ten thousand rupees.”
She heaved a big sigh and said, “ Amazing! Amazing! The original is begging to live while the reflection gets sold for ten thousand!”
This world is engrossed in reflections. Here the value of an echo is greater than that of the original sound. The value of the reflection greater than the original. Who can express the beggar woman’s feelings?
::- UNTRUTH, THE SEED OF CRIME -::
 
::- THE SECRET OF BIRTH -::

The judge asked the criminal, “Now you are in the court of justice. Speak the truth and no the untruth- where does the one who speak the truth go and where does the one who is untruthful
The criminal replied, “The one who tells lies he goes to hell and the one who tells the truth goes to jail.”
Crime and lies are inseparable. If speech is truthful then crime gets distanced automatically crime flourishes in false speech.



 
The son asked the father, “Father, where were you born?” “In the capital of Tamil Nadu, in Chennai.”
Where was my mother born?”
“In Mumbai town.”
“Where was I born?”
“In Ahmedabad”
“Tow did you, me, all of us come together?” The on who does not know the secret of birth asks such amusing questions. The one who has understood the esoteric secrets of birth will ask more intense questions.
