Once a king said to his minister, “Let me answer these four questions. The one who is not here, the second one – there is no here, the third one – who is not here and is not there, the fourth – who is also here Ho and there too. “
The minister asked for two days to reply. After two days, he appeared in the court with four persons and said, “Rajan! Our scriptures present the concept of heaven and hell according to good deeds and their fruits. This first person is corrupt, it is wrong. Although working here looks happy and prosperous, but it will not be there in heaven. The other person is a Sadgrihastha. It lives here honestly. The person is definitely suffering, but it will definitely be there. The third person is a beggar, it is a dependent. It is neither happy here nor there will be happy. This fourth person is a Danveer Seth, who is using his wealth to others. Is also doing well and is happy. It is also happy here due to its generous behavior and its place is also safe there due to good deeds. “
Acharya started imparting methodical teaching of archery to Drona princes. Arjuna was a favorite disciple of Dronacharya due to Arjuna being very talented and gurus in those princes. Dronacharya also had a special affection for his son Ashwatthama, so in archery he was also a pioneer among all the princes, but Arjuna was more talented than Ashwatthama. One night, when all the disciples were eating in the Guru’s ashram, the lamp suddenly extinguished due to the breeze. Arjuna saw that even when it is dark, he takes the mouthful of food to his mouth. From this incident he came to understand that more practice than light is required for aiming and he started practicing shooting in the darkness of night. Guru Drona was very pleased with his practice. He trained Arjuna in the use of weapons like mace, tomar, sword etc. along with archery.
At the same time, Eklavya, son of Nishad named Hiranya Dhanu, also came to Dronacharya’s ashram for the purpose of learning archery, but Dronacharya did not accept him as his disciple due to being of inferior varna. Frustrated, Eklavya went to the forest. He made an idol of Dronacharya and started practicing archery by considering that idol as Guru. He became very adept at archery within a short period of time doing spiritual practice.
One day the prince along with Guru Drona went to the same forest for hunting, where Ekalavya was practicing archery by building an ashram. The dog of the princes wandered and reached Eklavya’s ashram. He started screaming on seeing Eklavya. Angry, Eklavya drove his dog and filled his mouth with arrows. Ekalavya fired arrows with the skill that the dog did not get any kind of injury, but his barking stopped due to the arrows being tied.
When the dog returned, when Arjuna saw that skill of archery, he said to Dronacharya, “O Gurudev! With the skill that the arrows are fired in the mouth of this dog, it seems that there is someone bigger than me. . ” Taking all his disciples, Dronacharya came to Eklavya and asked, “O Watts! Have you run this arrow?” On accepting Ekalavya, he again asked, “Who is going to teach you archery?” Ekalavya replied, “Gurudev! I have learned archery by accepting you as my guru.” Having said this, he stood before his idol of Dronacharya.
Dronacharya did not want anyone to become an archer bigger than Arjuna. He said to Eklavya, “If I am your Guru, then you must give me Gurudakshina.” Ekalavya said, “Gurudev! I am ready to give whatever you ask for as a Gurudakshina.” On this, Dronacharya asked Eklavya for his right hand thumb as Gurudakshina. Eklavya gladly gave his thumb. In this way Eklavya became unable to bow with his hand, then started practicing bow riding with his feet.

It was famous about a person that he never gets angry. There are some people who think only bad things. One of such people decided to detach the unsuspecting gentleman and got engaged in his work. He formed a group of such people and said to the servant of that gentleman, if you can provoke your master then you will be rewarded. The servant got ready. He knew that his master did not like the shrinking bed at all. So he did not make the bed right that night.
In the morning, Swami told the servant only that the bed was fine yesterday.
The servant made an excuse and said that I had forgotten to fix.
The servant did not forget, so how did it improve? Therefore, the bed was not well laid on the second, third and fourth days.
Then Swami said to the servant that you are bored with the work of fixing the bed and want this nature of mine to be released. No problem. Now I am getting used to sleeping on a shrink bed.
Now not only the servant but those rascals too gave up.
