Reality of world
Prernamurti Shriji in this video unveils the reality of this world through a story of King Bharatri. King Bharatri was an ascetic. His wife was very beautiful. He wrote ‘ Shringar Shataka’ containing 100 shloka on the beauty of women looking at his wife.Bharatri was generously ruling over his kingdom. Once a saint came to his kingdom. He gave king an eternal fruit and told – “I want you to eat this eternal fruit since you are the only one deserving it. After eating this fruit, you will always remain young and happy. But dear king, you are overindulged in the sense pleasures. When you will come to know the reality of this, you will become very sad. “
But Bharatri failed to understand what saint indicated. He gave the eternal fruit to his wife thinking that he will be happy if his wife remains young and healthy forever. His wife gave that fruit to minister, her lover, thinking that if minister remains young she will be happy. Minister in turn was loving a prostitute. He gave that fruit to prostitute for his happiness and not for any benefit of prostitute. Prostitute though that if she eats that fruit, she will remain young forever and increase her sins. So she though that one who lives for the welfare of others deserves this fruit and gave it to Bharatri.
King Bharatri was shocked to see that fruit with prostitute. It was an eye-opener for him. When he came to know that prostitute got the fruit from minister and minster got it from his wife, his Vairagya (renunciation from sense pleasures) was aroused. He was ashamed of himself thinking that he is loving his wife who is loving someone else who in turn is loving someone else. Is this the reality of world???Then he understood what that saint wanted to convey about the reality of this worldthrough the eternal fruit. He then wrote Vairagya Shataka which today also devotees read to attain enlightenment.
So to summarize, when you will come to know the reality of Indriyas (senses), the reality of this world; you will understand that nobody loves you. Everybody loves themselves only. Nobody can love you more than you yourself can because you yourselfare the source of eternal happiness…!!
