Guru shows the way to see God
(Based on a meaningful face book post .My thanks to that author who wrote it)
One very learned person went to a guru and told,
“I have learnt several religions of world but ,
I am not knowing which of them would lead me to God?”
And the Guru took him to the bank of a very big river.
Then Guru told him , “The answer to your question ,
Is in the other shore and so if you want to learn the answer,
Build a boat yourself , go to the other shore .”
And the learned person started building boats.
The guru pointed out mistakes and problems in each boat he built,
And due to great anxiety to know the answer , he did not bother about them,
Took a boat and reached the other shore and soon he found,
That there is nothing or nobody in the other shore to give him the answer.
When he returned back and shouted at the Guru , he replied,
“A little while ago , you were greatly enthused to know the answer,
And did not give any importance to the boat by which you travelled.
Just like that all relegions would take you to God, provided you have enthusiasm”
Has it not been told in our great religion that,
Just like rain water everywhere reaches the sea ultimately,
All the religions of the world do lead to Lord Kesava,
And I feel all that you need is faith and enthusiasm
