Success Mantra: To be successful, remove the burden of suffering as soon as possible.
For a time, a great sage lived in a village. People brought their problems with them and the sage used to guide them. One day a person came to the sage and asked a question from the sage. He asked the sage, Gurudev, I want to know what is the secret to always be happy? The sage told him that you come with me in the jungle, I tell you the secret of being happy.
By saying this, the sage and the person started walking towards the forest. On the way, the sage picked up a big stone and told the person to grab it and walk. The person picked up the stone and started walking along the sage to the forest. After some time the person started having pain in his hands but he kept quiet and continued. But when a lot of time passed and he suffer from the pain, he told the sage that he is suffering from pain. So the sage said that put this stone down. The person felt great relief after keeping the stone down.
Only then the sage said that this is the secret to be happy. Then the person said I did not understand. So the sage said, if you want to be happy then learn to put the painful stone down quickly as soon as possible.
