Since childhood, stories attract me the most, my grandma 👵 used to tell a story before I sleep 😴, with time grandma completed her human life and she left us with her blessings and lots of love ❤ she often tell us the story of all variety the story which affected me the most was a story related to Buddha the story is;
One day Buddha was passing by a village many of his devotees came across to see him and ask him for salvation from their life troubles, Buddha answered each of them with a pleasant smile on his face.
There was a women who lost her only child recently, due to some disease, she came in front of Buddha, and described her immense pain and sorrow and asked if somehow he could make his child alive again, as he was only hope for this poor lady.
Buddha thought for a while and replied, ok mother! I can bring life to your son but I have one small condition which you need to fulfill.
The lady replied with a joy while quickly wiping her tears yes!! I will do whatever you say.
Buddha said I need a handful of rice 🍚 just make sure that you bring the rice from the home 🏠 where no one had died.
Hearing this, lady quickly rushed to the nearby houses asking for a handful of rice, she got more than as she demanded, suddenly she reminded the condition to the owner of the house, owner replied no! Few years back we lost our daughter, the lady became sad and moved to another house.
The lady ransacked each and every house of the village but she could not find a single home where no one died, now the lady had no clues what to do, she sat in the sidewalk thought about it consciously, she had a smile on her face, she went near to Buddha bowed down folded her hands and thanked Buddha, Buddha greeted her with a smile the lady became a monk now perhaps she came to know the reality of life and Buddha taught this life lesson in a unique way.
When I heard this story I was just 8-9 year old kid I thought Buddha did wrong he should have bring her kid alive, but as I grew up I found Buddha a greatest philosopher of all time a divine entity in true sense.
We can’t find a single soul who hasn’t suffered in this life, so stop complaining and blaming, accept your pain and move on that’s life that is how it goes on…
