Budda Concept

“Jumping at several small opportunities may get us there

more quickly than waiting for one big one to come along.”

One day Buddha was walking through a village. A very angry and rude
young man came up and began insulting him. "You have no right teaching
others," he shouted. "You are as stupid as everyone else. You are
nothing but a fake."

Buddha was not upset by these insults. Instead he asked the young man
"Tell me, if you buy a gift for someone, and that person does not take
it, to whom does the gift belong?"

The man was surprised to be asked such a strange question and answered,
"It would belong to me, because I bought the gift."

The Buddha smiled and said, "That is correct. And it is exactly the
same with your anger. If you become angry with me and I do not get
insulted, then the anger falls back on you. You are then the only one
who becomes unhappy, not me. All you have done is hurt yourself."

If you are right then there is no need to get angry
And if you are wrong then you don't have any right to get angry.

Patience with family is love,
Patience with others is respect,
Patience with self is confidence, and
Patience with GOD is faith.

Never Think Hard about PAST,
It brings Tears...
Don't Think more about FUTURE,
It brings Fears...
Live this Moment with a Smile,
It brings Cheers.!!!!

Never Judge Anyone By Your Own Yardstick

A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called for an
urgent surgery. He answered the call asap, changed his clothes and
went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy's father going
and coming in the hall waiting for the doctor.
Once seeing him, the dad yelled:
"Why did you take all this time to come? Don't you know that my son's
life is in danger? Don't you have the sense of responsibility?"

The doctor smiled and said:
"I am sorry, I wasn't in the hospital and I came the fastest I could
after receiving the call...... And now, I wish you calm down so that I
can do my work"

"Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you
calm down? If your son dies now what will you do??" said the father

The doctor smiled again and replied: "I will say Glory be to God and
give thanks.

"Giving advises when we're not concerned is so easy" Murmured the father.

The surgery took some hours after which the doctor came out happy.
Praise God, your son is saved!" And without waiting for the father's
reply he carried on his way running. "If you have any questions, ask
the nurse, please!"

"Why is he so arrogant? He couldn't wait for some minutes so that I
ask about my son's state" Commented the father when he saw the nurse
minutes after the doctor left.
The nurse answered, tears coming down her face: "His son died
yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him
for your son's surgery. And now that he saved your son's life, he left
running to finish his son's burial."

Never think you have a bigger problem than the next person, never
judge anyone by your own yardstick...because you never know how their
life is and what they're going through :).
