One evening Gautam Buddha was speaking to his disciples. This was his routine every evening sermon.


After the sermon, as always, he said to his disciples, ”Now, go; and before going to sleep, don’t forget your real work.”


Now, that real work was not just feeling happy because they have knowledge from Buddha. That real work was meditation.


That night one thief was listening from a distance. One prostitute was listening too for she had heard glorious things about Buddha.


The thief thought, ”My God, this man is amazing. He is saying ‘Before going to sleep, don’t forget to do your work.

He is encouraging me to steal. It is time, I must go.”


The prostitute was puzzled, ”I am sitting so far away. How on earth did Buddha recognize me?

How did he know what work I do? How did he understand that my work starts in the night?”


The thief went to steal.
The prostitute went to her work.
The sannyasins went to meditate.


Buddha had said only one thing: ”Don’t forget the work,” but the interpretation was different.


What people say does not decide anything for you. Their word cannot decide anything for you. 

It is ALWAYS YOU who decides what the world’s communication says to you. Isn’t it?


Now go ahead and type your answer to me. Tell me what did this LSM mean to you?


With love, prayers, and exceptional wishes,


Change your thoughts. Change your life.

    Hi Naren,

    The sermon was meant for the disciples, not for the thief and the prostitute.

    The thief and the prostitute overheard the words of Buddha, without knowing his teaching. So they lost the context of the words of Buddha and picked up the meaning as per their perception.

    Do not construe or interpret unless you grasp the full context. This is my takeaway from this LSM.

    Happy Day 😃

    Today’s LSM for me is :
    Just do what I think is right and needful, irrespective of others’ opinion.

    Thank You Narenji 🙏🏻🤗
