It’s Strange isn’t it?


Isn’t it strange how a 20 rupee note seems like such a large amount when we donate it to temple or feed a hungry with food,
but such a small amount when we go shopping?

Isn’t it strange how 2 hours seem so long when we are at Temple,
and how short they seem when we are watching a good movie?

Isn’t it strange that we can’t find a word to say when we are praying,
but we have no trouble thinking what to talk about with a friend?

Isn’t it strange how difficult and boring it is to read one chapter of the Bhagwad Gita,
but how easy it is to read 100 pages of a popular novel ?

Isn’t it strange how everyone wants front-row-tickets to concerts or games,
but they do whatever is possible to sit at the last row in Satsang?

Isn’t it strange how we need to know about an event for Temple 2-3 weeks before the day so we can include it in our agenda,
but we can adjust it for other events in the last minute?

Isn’t it strange how difficult it is to learn a fact about God to share it with others,
but how easy it is to learn, understand, extend and repeat gossip?

Isn’t it strange how we believe everything that magazines and newspapers say,
but we question the words in the Bhagwad Gita?

Isn’t it strange how we send jokes in e-mails and they are forwarded right away,
but when we are going to send messages about God, we think about it twice before we share it with others?

  1. સરસ વાત
    …પણ વ્યહવારમા જોવા મળે છે કે તમે રાજકારણ અને ધર્મને ચર્ચામા ન લાવો તો સંબંધ વધુ સારા રહે છે!
