How to run towards a problem - a short story

Have you heard of a saint and dog story anytime? This story has inspired many minds. It has induced strength and also ways to overcome problems.

Once a saint came to Himalayas. He wanted to visit all the temples there and collect information. Not only he visited temples, he used to collect history about the temples. He also had appointed a personal assistant and guider for this activity. Once the saint and his assistant went to a big temple. When the saint approached towards the temple big gates, he observed huge dogs tied to each gate. The dogs were looking like beasts and seem to look like having the strength of tiger. A very strong chain was used to tie them to the gates. The saint looking at the dogs took his steps back. His assistant informed him not to worry as the dogs are tied to the gates.

But the dogs kept barking continuously on seeing them. It started pulling out the chain desperately to get released from the chain. Their red eyes even turned red now. Anyone who would see these dogs would have definitely felt afraid. The assistant replied, “Sir, these are hunting dogs. If these find anyone, these they will encroach and rip them apart. But you don’t worry – they are tied to the gates with strong chains, they will not be able to come out”

The saint and his assistant entered into the temple and started their way towards the temple shrine. They suddenly heard some people voice saying “Oh, Oh my god . be careful , run , run !! “. The saint turned back hearing this and saw the dogs had somehow broke the chains and were running towards them at a rapid pace!! The dogs were sprinting like cheetahs while they headed towards the saint and seemed to encroach in no time.

At this moment, the saint started running. He started running putting his full efforts and strength. He did not run away from the dogs , but instead towards the dogs!! Guess what happened at this moment?

The dogs went by a surprise looking at the saint running towards them and run into confusion. Then went back to the gates where they were tied earlier. The watchman later tied the dogs with chains back to the gates.

The assistant who was seeing all this was astonished and asked the saint why he did like that. The saint replied – “In our life all our problems are like these dogs, if we run from them they will not leave us and be always behind creating issues, but once we face them and start running over them, they go out”

Most of us in our life spend most of our time fearing to something. When problems come, we may fear when we may lose out. Hence we always try to run away from problems. If we realize the above story, we understand the solution is not from running away from problems but instead facing them with full strength!

Bounce back like a ball – an inspiring short story of Terry Fox

In our life, during failures,  disgrace, if physically down – most of them loose confidence and give up. Those never became leaders in the society. Only few of them accept & turn the negative part as an opportunity to come up as successful beings. Mahatma Gandhi was pushed out of the train twice, but still he bounced back and used it as tool for freedom struggle. One such inspiration is from the life of Terry Fox.

Terry Fox during his young days at college was a very good sprinter. He also had interest in many other outdoor games. He was dreaming to perform one day at Olympics. Once he experienced knee pain and diagnosed the same at a hospital. The doctor after performing the diagnosis, informed Terry - knee was affected with Cancer. Terry was just 21 years at this time, with full of dreams & was shell shocked  when doctor informed they have to cut his legs till knees cap to avoid cancer cells spreading the whole body. He underwent the operation and got his one leg cut till knee cap.

Terry’s sprinting dream came to a standstill & was little depressed. His coach approached him & consoled “Terry , you have just lost one leg. If you have a determined heart & goal - you can still achieve what you want”. Fox felt it right. He decided to collect fund for free treatment of cancer patients who were suffering just like him. He decided to put on an artificial leg – and travel from one point of Canada to another as an marathon event to raise fund of 1 lakh US dollars . He named this event as the “Terry Fox’s Marathon of hope”. The doctors were against this step & did not support Terry. However he got support from his college friend.
The run started the next day. Terry fixed an artificial leg and started the marathon run. Initially the artificial leg was very painful. Terry withstood the pain and continued the run, he used to cover 30 miles a day. Initially nobody noticed, but later after 10 days – terry started developing pain in the knees and it started bleeding slowly. But still terry knotted a bandage cloth & continued the run.  The TV , press channels started following up and terry was the news among people. One day he got an opportunity to meet the prime minister of the country. The prime minister asked Terry about his purpose for the run. Terry replied “Till I met you , my aim was to raise 1 lakh US dollars fund , but now my enthusiasm is still developed and I shall continue to run till 10 lakh US dollars are raised”. The minister did not show much interest in these words. Terry kept running. Day by day, terry became popular all over the country , and funds were raised from all ends.
Cancer is his leg had developed and spread to most of his body including his lungs now. The doctors advised terry to stop the run and warned he has less days of life now. Terry then replied – “Oh , I have less time now & should run still faster then , I need to collect dollar from each people of the county and raise 20 lakh US dollars” and continued the run. On the day when the funds were raised , he collapsed  & was admitted to hospital. He was a hero by that time & the funds raised had reached the cancer hospital. When the doctors informed Terry will not be able to stand also , a young guy approached Terry and asked “What to do now ?”. Terry with the same spirit replied “You run behalf of me , Also Include others in the run”. Many people were inspired by these words and participated in the marathon run to create awareness about cancer. After few days , Terry died. His name remained legendary in the history.

When a ball is thrown on the ground , it bounces back to our hands and still higher depending on the force we throw the ball. When a rubber ball has that capacity, why we humans who has larger amount of power collapse fearing failure? Are we incapable to bounce back unlike a ball ?

Hope you enjoyed the story . Pass on this message to your loved and dearest ones if worth.

The difference in true faces – Nirvana - a great short story

This is one of the unforgettable stories which, one should not forget also. His name was Kurt Donald Cobain . He was born in 1967 Feb 20th in Aberdeen, America. He was influenced with Music right from birth as his family members were music lovers and had created similar environment at home. One does not know whether music was present from his genes or was influenced from his family environment. He used to be happy always and sing well. Also he used to learn playing many instruments. 

He was very fond of Guitar. But when he was 7 years old , he got separated from his parents. His father married another lady , while his mother had an affair with her boy friend . This separation had a great impact on Cobain’s mind & he was struggling inside his heart without having love from his parents. His life took a different turn from here. He started developing bad habits at school and was depressed. He also quit Christianity and adopted Buddhism & Jainism. But his music kept him going to some extent.

Following his love to Buddhism , he created a team the infamous Nirvana  group of music in 1986. This also made him to reach new heights of success in very less time. His first album “The Bleach” was very famous among mass. He was very famous among the mass during 1990 s. His album “Never Mind” created a sensation among the teens. He got engaged with Curtney Luv , his assistant singer and later got married. The couple later had Francis , a beautiful baby.

What would happen to a man when he had reached the heights of such success at the age of 27 . Just Imagine . But something strange happened in Coben’s life. He started taking drugs , alcoholic . He also once attempted for suicide. He was admitted to a special hospital to remove this addiction from drugs. He somehow used to escape from the hospital and roamed around. Later without informing anyone , he moved to this bungalow in Seattle  and stayed alone. On 1994 Apr 5th , he shot a bullet to his head and died. He had written one long death note.

He had mentioned – “ I have received huge praises in my life from people. The craze which my fans had about me was astonishing and I was afraid also. I was always thinking whether I am pretending with a different face towards them to get praises from them. I started thinking I am a sinner. More my glory increased outside , I started feeling the emptiness inside my heart. I was not able to reduce this gap of my different faces . This cannot stay long , should not stay long , The prettiness , glory shown outside may not increase one’s internal happiness” .

This story creates a thought inside our heart also isin't it ? When we stand in front of a mirror , only we alone know what we are really inside and outside. When the difference in this inside & outside faces develops, we start losing our happiness slowly pretending differently outside than what we are really inside.  To be happy we should always aim to reduce this gap. This is essential too

Hope you enjoyed reading this story. Let’s strive towards maintaining a single face , to maintain no difference what we are really inside & outside , lead our life with truth & happiness - and show how unique we are to this world. Open up towards Nirvana!!

The value of a cereal grain – A short story from saint’s Thiruvalluvar Thirukkural

To write an epic like Ramayana , Bhagavad Gita , Thirukkural  etc is a predominant task.  Epics not only introduce us to spiritual values, but also teaches rules of life and make man realize them. It is only possible for great wise people to create such epics. In this world many epic stories have stood and followed as culture by many communities. Among them Thirukkural is one of the famous epic written by great Tamil poet Thiruvalluvar. Just like a painter takes care of minute aspects while creating a canvas image , these poets consolidate their experience and incidents around them and make those reach the people which serve as valuable treasure of teachings. One such incident in Maha kavi Thiruvalluvar life , teaches us a valuable lesson and makes us to think deeper.

Vasuki , Thiruvalluvar’s wife was very much devoted to him ( Pathivrathe) , she used to support him in all his spiritual acts and deeds. When she was aged and old , she succumbed with some disease. Slowly she came to knew this disease was reducing her life and she may die soon.  Once she called Thiruvalluvar , made him to sit beside her and asked – “Swamy , I am very lucky to be wife of you. I am not sure how I have been useful to you or contributed to achieve your goals success. But I am satisfied with my efforts. I may not live for more time now. I have learnt from you not to fear death and get depressed. I am not worried about death. But my mind always had one doubt , I cannot withstand keeping it further with me . Can I ask that doubt ?” . Thiruvalluvar was surprised and asked her doubt. She replied – “Since marriage, when I joined your family , you had given me an order to keep one pin and one Shanka (conch shell) beside the food served on banana leaf without fail. I had not asked the reason for this and kept following for 20 years. But you never used them. Many times I had thought of asking about its secret , but was fearing you. Can I know the reason behind this? “

Thiruvalluvar consoled his wife and replied “Vasuki , I am very lucky to have you as my wife. You are  so devoted towards me. I am very thankful to you in this regard. The answer to your doubt is very simple. In our food, the cereal grain is a tool for our growth and life. We should treat it with respect. While having food If any one cereal grain goes out of my banana leaf and falls on the ground , my intention was to use a pin to slowly pick the cereal from the ground , clean it with the water present in conch shell and put it back on the banana leaf so that I can eat it. The reason why I did not use this is, till now not even once you have spilled cereals on floor while serving food, you had taken such proper care. You had served me with great care and responsibility”. By saying this Thiruvalluvar is not only consoling his wife but also teaches a lesson for us.

The above story makes one realize, If we know the efforts put by our farmers behind the production of one cereal grain till it reaches our meal plate, then we know its value and may not waste food during serving or leave behind after our course of meal. Leaving behind or wasting a cereal grain is like not paying /respecting dues to the farmer’s sweat efforts.

Hope you have enjoyed this story. Remember to share this wise story and educate others not to waste even single grain of food and make good use of it to the needed.
