“Why do you make so many errors? If you make so, make silly mistakes then how will you bagged an award?” My father scolded me while correcting an official letter drafted and typed by me.
I looked up from my laptop screen and boldly told him, “Papa, you are a genius who has won numerous awards and I am an average IQ person. You still have a burning desire to win more awards and I have no desire to win any award. I have only one desire i.e., to do charity and I am happy with that.” After that, he never scolded me at least for an award despite he handed over a huge sum of money for my charity work.
On a spiritual path, I do not have any desire for attainment of Siddhis i.e., psychic, magical powers or supernatural abilities to have clairvoyance, levitation, bilocation, becoming as small as an atom, materialization, and having access to memories from past lives. I have a tiny desire that I never had any negative thoughts towards my Guru Om Swamiji. And I am happy with that.
Today is 11th day of fasting. With that devouring chole bhature becomes a big wish in my life! ;)

You are too, very generous as your father. It matches with the quote of paramahsan yogananda where he said, "To have “charity” is to have the love of a million mothers in your heart, no prejudices of race, color or class, and the ever-ready willingness to spread the light of friendly service to all." Indeed you have you a love of million mothers in your heart. Jai Sri Hari :)ReplyDelete
