As promised, here's a story to highlight how two qualities in a human being which can lead them to achieve almost any goal. The beginning dialogue between Guru & Shishya, is my own creation, rest is a story I once saw in a movie (sorry can't remember the name 😅). @anexcommie
On to the story without further ado.

A Shishya asked his Guru - 'wht qualities shud I cultivate to lead a happy life?'

Guru smiled at him and said - 'O, Shishya of mine! U only need to hv two qualities.
@gary_agg @hathyogi1 @_Aadishaktii @CosmosSanatan @sambhashan_in
Determination to follow the path of Dharma and Faith tht it'll help lead u a happy life.'

Shishya was confused and Guru looking at his Shishya said, 'let me tell u a story, tht will clear things for u' and narrated below story.

Once Bhagwan Shiva and Maa Paravati were conversing in their abode - Kailasa. Maa Parvati asked Bhagwan - 'Swami, it's a known fact tht Ganga-snān liberates one from their pāpa, isn't it?'

Bhagwan replied - 'Yes, Devi. wht seems to hv confused u?'

@JumbuTweeple @SriRamya21
Maa Parvati - 'I was just thinking, with so many ppl visiting Varanasi and doing Ganga-snān, shudn't they b liberated from their pāpas? Why there's still so much misery?'

Bhagwan smiled and replied - 'Devi, I understand ur dilemma and ur concern for ur children. @Brihati_V
However, those ppl who do Ganga-snān miss an essential quality'

Maa Paravati was surprised and inquired - 'and wht might be tht quality, Swami?'

Bhagwan still smiling said - 'instead of me answering, let me show' and directed Maa's attention towards a leper (named X)...@shri_v
...sitting in a veranda of a house in Varanasi.

X continuously made fun of a Sadhu who's skin was wrinkled as reason for his strict tapā & once also Qed Sadhu's tapasya. The enraged Sadhu cursed X, tht he'll suffer a similar condition due to illness and...
...cud only be liberated if he does Ganga-snān. However, his curse also included tht anyone who helps him will incur all his pāpas and if X tries to hide this fact from ppl ready to help him, he'll never attain liberation from his sins.
@Mahender_Chem @VertigoWarrior @desi_thug1
Since then, X sought help from many ppl who're visiting Varanasi for Ganga-snān, but as soon as they heard his story, they refused to help. Not only refusing to help, ppl even started abusing him for making fun of tapasya and a Sadhu.

@ruchitweet @Bhaktirassagar @krithikasivasw
X was however determined to do Ganga-snān and kept on trying to seek help from anyone & everyone.

One day, a robber (let's call him Y) came along the way to Varanasi & happened to pass by the house X was staying. X called out to him and made the request. @Shudra_Sanatani
Y readily agreed to carry X for Ganga-snān. X however then told Y abt the other part of his curse. After hearing it Y started laughing loudly, he said 'Man, I used to be a robber and hv a lot of pāpa already, besides we're going for Ganga-snān,...
@PiousPrabhakar @shivkatyayni777
so my pāpas - including wht I inherit from u will be washed away and I'll be liberated.'

Bhagwan concluded to Maa Parvati tht this Faith is wht is missing from ppl doing Ganga-snān.

@shradxy @harshapatel2013 @Hamainsanghihu @rightwingchora @Poinnt_Blankk @mysql_sync
As adviced by Guru at the beginning of the story, we nowadays lack determination to carry on wht we're doing and tht leads to having no faith in our ability & our work.

So, choose a goal & be determined to achieve it while having faith in ur ability and Mahadev.

Sincere apologies, for the length of the thread and if there's any error in the in it 🙏🏻

Have a good evening!
