Story about Master !!
For the first time in his life he was sitting co
close to the master. It has been hardly some
months, after he came into the space surrounding
the master. There was a big crowd surrounding the
master. He was looking at the master, wondering
at his wisdom. But he never called himself a
disciple of the master. He was not even attached
to him. It was the ability of the master as a
powerful orator and his immense knowledge that
attracted him. He did not even believe in God.
His life, the path traversed by him was not
filled with flowers, but thorns. Even when he was
listening to the master, he was in his own world.
His mind was as usual traveling through the
miseries that he underwent. His principles were
based on his experienced. He had a strong point
in not believing in the God. "If a woman has to
sell her body for earning bread for her family,
if a child has to become a thief just for
quenching thirst and hunger, and if it is the
decision of god, then that god is not mine." He
could find logics only communism and rationalism.
He saw intelligent children suffering to earn
higher education, for they were not having
economical support. At the same time he saw his
friends climbing up the ladders only because the
pockets of their father was heavy. God acted
funny in his life. So there was no other option
for him to go away from the God, and all the
so-called masters. He hated them. He was even
rude to his loving parents, they were not having
any answer to his questions, and his mother cried
a lot for she was not able to bear his rude
The Earth has orbited the sun for many years; the
wisdom of this master has pulled him near to the
master. His mind was wandering. Suddenly he woke
up, the master was standing right in front of
him. He carried a microphone, a cordless one, in
his hand. He looked at the master, and the master
looked into his eyes. There was a naughty smile
on the master's face.
What happened? Do you have any problem?" the
master asked. He did not tell anything. No words
came out of his vocal chords. He wanted to ask
many questions, including the sufferings, and
credibility of the so-called God. But he could
not utter a word. He was astonished to see the
master so close, and to hear him asking this
question. At last he managed to tell the master
"No, No Problem".
The master moved ahead. Three steps. The master
stopped. Master looked at him. There was the same
smile on the master's face. "Have you seen
Diamonds?" The crowd shouted. "Yes", but he kept
quiet. He wondered, "Why the master is looking at
my face and asking this?" Master asked again "Why
diamonds are so special, tell". So many answers
came at a time from the disciple folk.
"They are very strong!"
"They shine even at night!"
"Beautiful females wear them on their ornaments,
even Aishwarya Rai!!"
"They are rare"
"They are very costly"
There were so many answers. Master asked. "Do you
know that the diamond is carbon? The same carbon
with which charcoal.koyla. is made of."
"Yes. There is some difference in the chemical
structure", some learned disciple made it clear.
"Yes, that charcoal, the carbon was hidden under
the stones, under the earth for years before it
became the diamond. The charcoal had undergone
years of chemical changes, pressures, heat, cold,
for years. a lot of sufferings. at last the
diamond was evolved.", he was wondering at the
master's words. "Where is he going? What is
diamond and charcoal? . bu** ****
Then one day the charcoal became a stone, paTHar.
Many people saw it. But they did not understand
that it was a special stone. They just overlooked
it. One day one man who was a diamond merchant
saw that stone. He just took it to his lab. He
started cutting it into shape, filing it,
polishing it and again suffering time for the
stone. at last it started to shine. The diamond!!
"The master looked at his face, with the same
smile. Were his eyes filled now??? He was
intelligent; he smelled something in the master's
words. "Do you know how much suffering that
charcoal, koyla, has undergone to evolve into the
strong diamond?" still the masters' eyes were on
"When sufferings come to our path, we curse
everybody, even the God, the master. But know
that those sufferings are given to you to make
him stronger and stronger. like a diamond. He
want to make you strong, for he loves you so
much." The master again looked at him. This time
his eyes were filled.
He had never seen that ex-pression in his life
before. The master's eyes talked to him
everything. He saw the endless sky of love in the
master's eyes. The master's hands waved in the
air. "You are a diamond. You will be made
stronger.stronger. " The master continued. "Know
that you all are special. I never collect
ordinary stones; I collect diamonds and pearls."
master walked ahead taking his mind along with.
He understood that it was the end. He told to his
mind." Here is your master.the God you were
searching for. The source of the unconditional
love. your own existence. yourself." He folded
his hands, with tears in eyes.
The garbage that he was carrying in his mind was
carried away by his master, his own master.
Without him telling anything, without uttering a
word, his mind was cleansed. He walked out and
immediately made a telephone call to his loving
mother."forgive me for all those disrespectful
words that I uttered to you. I was ignorant. I
was lost. but now I am found. by my master." his
words were trembling. his mother was silent..
My Friend, this is master, the guru. It is not
you who are selecting the master. He is selecting
you. You need not to tell anything to him. He
knows everything. You need not to open your mind
before him; your mind is an open book for him.
Personalize him; he is your divine. Nobody else
in this planet can give you what he gives. His
love is endless, everlasting, in this life and
next lives. Be in that love.
