From the Mahabharata: about the family
- Dear all,
The following words are from the Mahabharata videos I have been
watching last year. I made copies for my colleagues and left one for
mysself next to my desk.
I love these words and I am reading them from time to time. I would
like to share them today with you all.
"A family is like a garland.Just like every flower is separate in a
garland, every person is separate. Just like a thread holds the
garland together. Without the thread no garland can be made, nor a
family. But this does not mean, that the thread is all important. A
garland is neither flowers nor thread. It is the combination of the
two. In a good family the unifying bond is invisible. This thread
should remain invisible, the garland should be visible. The family
should be visible. Every flower in the garland can be different in
color and scent. This enhances the beauty of the garland. But the
colors and scents should not clash. They should be properly balanced.
The same applies to the family. If ambitions clash, the garland is to
blame. This is what happens in Hastinapur..."
With a oneness-heart
