A returned gift from Lord buddha


    a returned gift from Lord buddha

    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.!!!!
