The Sunday Class

Yesterday was Sunday and as usual I went on to attend my one of the most important classes on better living. The topic was the phases of life a spiritual man goes through in his life. As the topic is broad, so for this class we discussed only a portion of it. The lessons are taken from the holy book of Sikhs, “Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji”.

Here was one point in the discussion which I liked the most.  That was, we all went to school, right? In schools there are many facilities available to students. There are good classrooms, water for drinking, we take lunch over there and do many more things. But, what is the actual reason for which we go to school?

The answer is simple. We go to school for learning. We don’t go there for sitting in classrooms or drinking water or for lunch. Same is with our earth. The almighty has provided us with a beautiful environment for our needs. They are for our uses only. No one is going to take it away with them when they leave the world. We are not here to take advantage of nature. We are born for some reason. There is a purpose of our life. The world is set in an auto-cycle. People wake up early in the morning, get ready for their work in hurry and go to their respective works. Their whole day is spent like this in hurry doing many things that they think are the most important in their life. They come home tired and sleep. They don’t get the chance to think that what is the actual reason, we are here. Many are born who are bought in the auto-cycle and many die leaving. No one actually thinks about the purpose of life leaving some.

This is the only the first stage when a man thinks about the purpose of life and step  towards spirituality. The world is like a guesthouse for us. We come here one day and leaves on the other. So it’s our kind duty to keep the house clean and clear. The authority, that is the almighty, the owner of the guesthouse is doing his duty but keeping it clean as far as possible but the guests are not. It does not look good. So whenever you do something harmful to the nature, think that you are a guest here and if a guest does something bad in the guesthouse, he is not allowed to enter again. It’s our duty to keep it clean.

At last we all have to go. Who so ever came here, surely went back.
