Compassion

Posted in Uncategorized by K P Ramachandran on May 30, 2013

All religions proclaim that a portion of our income should be utilized for others welfare. Pure love is a willingness to give without a thought of receiving any thing in return. Here I recollect the story told by Tagore. A beggar returned home one day without any thing. In his sleep, he saw the King of Kings coming to him on a golden chariot. He was so happy and thought that all his bad days are over. But, to his dismay he saw that the King,  instead of giving him any thing, was stretching his hands for alms. Thinking of his misfortune he gave one grain from his bag to the King. The next day morning while emptying the bag for the day’s begging he saw that one grain was of gold. He wept for his unwillingness to give more. Winston Churchill told once that ” we make a living by what we get ; we make a life by what we give. ”  

Happiness

Make others happy is actually one’s Dharma. The real happiness comes when we make others happy. Oscar Wilde  once wrote that  “some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go”. In fact the US Declaration of independence proclaims that all citizens have a right  to ” the pursuit of happiness “. In fact, we all work  and earn ultimately for happiness only. It is also our duty to make others happy. As Helen Keller told  ” No one should consume happiness without producing it “. Unless we abandon the vices like greed and hatred we cannot enjoy real happiness and also to give happiness to others. Are you happy and gave happiness to others ?
