story – An old man had great faith in Gautama Buddha. One day his young son died. That son was the only support for the old woman. Unhappily she reached Buddha.
The old woman said to the Buddha, ‘You bring my dead son alive.’ The woman thought that Buddha could do it. Because of his attachment to his son, the woman made this request to the Buddha.
Buddha listened to the woman, understood and for some time they started thinking. Buddha wanted people to get a message in the times ahead of this event. He told the old lady, ‘I will do this, but you have to bring a handful of mustard seeds from a house where no one has ever died. Bring a handful of mustard seeds from the family who have not seen the sorrow of death.
The woman thought, ‘This is a very simple task. You have to bring only a handful of mustard seeds.
The old woman had not even thought what the second thing Buddha said, what it meant. Wherever the woman used to go, she would say honestly, “If no one has ever died in your house, give a handful of mustard seeds.”
The answer to all the people of the village is that death has taken place. It was also very painful and some people have been in their old age, some have been untimely, but have died.
When similar answers were being received from all the houses, the woman understood that the Buddha had sent me thinking something. By the time she returned to the Buddha, she knew that one day death was to come. His grief should not be celebrated for a long time.
Learning – When a dear person in a family dies, most people blame God and their fate. Everyone has to die. That is why one should not grieve for a very long time after death, the present life starts to deteriorate.
