There was an old fort on top of a hill. Most of the people, in
the town nearby, did not know much about it. Some were
curious to know what lay beyond the fort. They began to
climb it. It was a difficult task. Many of the climbers got
tired and returned home midway. Only a few with
determination conquered it.

On the top, they were thrilled to see a beautiful world. It was
a kingdom of happiness. It was a land of golden palaces
decorated with precious stones. It was a land free from pain,
poverty, disease, death and old age. There was no hatred,
jealousy or fear and people were very happy.

Some of the climbers were so fascinated with this paradise
that they did not want to return home. They jumped down
the fort and began to live in the happy land.

Some others wanted to inform their people about the land of
happiness. So, they screamed at the top of their voices about
the glories of this golden world. Then, they also jumped down
to live in the happy land.

Only one brave and kind person returned home. He spoke to
the people about the wonder world beyond the fort. He helped
many to scale the heights and reach the golden world.

What is this story about the town, the kingdom and the fort?

The town is the everyday material life which we lead. The
kingdom of happiness is the life of the Âtman. Ignorance is
the fort.

Many do not have the will to conquer this fort, while many of
us try to do so and fail. Those who conquer it, experience the
blissful world of the soul and gain liberation. Only a selfless
Sadhguru, who has experienced that bliss, takes pity on fellow
beings and comes back to lead them to the kingdom of
happiness. Through compassion and words of wisdom he
shows the way to the bliss of Âtman.

    Once Great looked Town looks dead..
    Once beautiful looked Fort looks ugly..
    Once ugly looked Fort looks attractive..
    The slippery looked fort has many paths which are not slippery..
    In those many nonslippery paths, there is a wide and beautiful path, Adi Shankaracharya is smiling showing climbing with everyone – big happiness lights are glowing..
    The happiness water that was tasted in the measure of a spoon in Town that too on few occasions.. looks like climbing the Fort other side is an Ocean of happiness. Forever – there is ocean, there is rain, there is happiness.
    .
    Blessed are those who jumped down the fort..
    Touched by those who screamed at the top of their voices..
    Want to be blessed and touched by that one kind person whose heart is an Ocean filled with kind..
    Sadguru, Bless us that braveness, Bless us that braveness, Bless us that braveness, let this SatKama echo in our heart crores and crores of times..
