Stand out from the crowd by introducing yourself to the world in a DIGITAL WAY  - eProfileZ



Once a priest decided to teach a lesson to the villagers. He placed 1 jar, and 3 boxes each containing big stones, pebbles and sand respectively. First he took 2 big stones and put them in the jar, and asked the villagers whether the jar was full. They all agreed that the jar was full. Then he took the pebbles from the next box and  put them into the jar. He again asked whether the jar is full to which the villagers again agreed. Now the priest took the third box and poured the sand into the jar, he again asked whether the jar is full or not. The villagers answered more affirmatively this time.

The priest told the villagers that the stones symbolize the two most important things of life, i.e. aim and objective. Enlightenment is the aim in life and attainment of perfection is the path of the objective. Life can be full only with this aim and objective. One must pursue the ultimate aim through progressive achievement of the objectives, failing which life becomes full of suffering with endless craving amidst everything.

The pebbles represent our possessions like job, wealth, house, spouse, children etc. These may be necessary but should be comfortably accommodated in life along with the big stones.

The sand represents our unending pursuits for enjoyment, like eating, drinking and being merry. They can find room in life even if it is filled with bigger issues.

At the end the priest summarizes that if sand or pebbles would have filled the jar first then there wouldn’t have been any space left for the big stones, so we should never give priority to the sand or the pebbles over the big stones.
