“A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.”
~Albert Einstein


              


It was time for the monsoon rains to begin and a very old man was digging holes in his garden.


"What are you doing ?" his neighbour asked.


"Planting mango trees," was the reply.


"Do you expect to eat mangoes from those trees?"


"No.I won't live long enough for that.....but others will.It occurred to me the other day that all my life I have enjoyed mangoes planted by other people.This is my way of showing them my gratitude." 
          ~ Anthony de Mello





“The value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is capable of receiving.”
~Albert Einstein


P.S: What if, we choose to go about life with a greater degree of gratitude for everyone known and unknown who has contributed to our lives?
What if,we could live with a greater understanding that the future generations could benefit from our invaluable contributions?????
What if, we could all live our lives with greater awareness that the choices that we make or not in every moment of everyday has the power to affect eternity???????
Namaste,
Bhagya
