THE POWER OF ILLUSION.. WHAT'S IT LIKE?


  • “We miss each other dear! The college days were so interesting. Can never forget all those precious moments.. I promise.. We may be parting today but our friendship never fades and grows ever stronger in the days coming!”
Saying thus the young man bid bye to his bosom friend tears rolling down his cheeks and they soon parted..

Days passed.. The friend got into a company whose Management in a short time deputed him for higher studies. The young man too joined another company..

  • “Dear! Your company bosses appear to be highly encouraging. Best of luck!”
He wished his friend on the the eve of his deputation..

A few years passed. The friend had grown to the Manager's level in his company. The young man, not so young by then continued to be at lower level..
  • “Congrats on your promotion, dear! Your company seems to be quite good. Here, I find no such encouragement!”
Were his comments on the day of the friend's promotion. Some more years passed..

The friend had shot up to the Senior Position in his organization..
  • “Congrats on your achievement. Best of luck! I'm OK!”
Were the few words from the then man who could become just a Manager. Soon, a day was there when the talk around went thus..

“You know! Mr______ has been appointed as Deputy Chief of our company! He is the first outsider directly coming to the higher post. Seems to be very smart guy. So quickly had grown to this position!”


The man already knew that it was his friend only. He subsequently met him and said
  • "Congratulations!"
Along with others. By that time he was only a Deputy Chief in his dept..

“They both were Classmates!”

Some one was commenting..

In a year, the friend became the GM of the company and the man could become max the Head of his Dept. One fine day, some one heard him talking softly in the ears of one of his colleagues..

  • “Dear! You know.. Our new GM.. Difficult to deal with him, Yaar.. He points out on everything. We might have been class mates but that doesn't mean, we were close friends. These people, when they come to power quickly forget that long ago...........”
From distance, the famous Epic Story was heard being narrated loud on the loud speakers by a scholar to a congregation of devoted audience..

"Sage Narada once asked Lord Krishna,

'What is Illusion?'

The Lord smiled and said,

'I will tell you.. Can you get me some water from one of the houses in distance?'

The Sage immediately went there, an attraction there soon held Him and further involvement led Him permanently into a series of activities endlessly over years..

One day suddenly a certain disaster struck, He in no time became utterly helpless and miserable losing everything and was in total in tears..

Suddenly a kind hand touched Him. As He looked up, He saw Lord Krishna smilingly saying,

'Dear! Where is the water?'"

  7. With our thoughts we create our own illusions and refuse to see the truth. Both the stories succinctly convey the message.
