ಜಗದ್ಗುರು ಶಂಕರಾಚಾರ್ಯ ಮಹಾಸಂಸ್ಥಾನಮ್-
Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all the others, including Love.
One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, soall repaired their boats and left.
Love wanted to persevere until the last possible moment.
When the island was almost sinking, Love decided to ask for help.
Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said “Richness, can youtake me with you?” Richness answered, “No, I can’t. There is a lot ofsilver in my boat. There is no place here for you.”
Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautifulvessel. “Vanity, please help me!” “I can’t help you Love. You are all wetand might damage my boat,” Vanity answered.
Sadness was close by so Love asked for help, “Sadness, let me go withyou.” “Oh….Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself.”
Happiness passed by Love too, but she was so happy that she did not evenhear when Love called her!
Suddenly there was a voice, “Come Love, I will take you.”
It was an elder.Love felt so blessed and overjoyed that he even forgot to ask the elder hisname.When they arrived at dry land, the elder went his own way.
Love realizing how much he owed the elder, asked Knowledge, another elder.
“Who helped me?” “It was Time,
” Knowledge answered. “Time?
” asked Love. “But why did Time help me?”
Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered,
“Because, only Time is capable of understanding how great Love is.” …….
LIKE WISE WE TO TAKE TIME TO REALIZE THE SAME LOVE WHICH STAY IN OURSELF.. RATHER SEARCHING FOR IT HERE AND THERE..
