A Reflected Glory


A Reflected Glory
          It is a nature that a person who has lack of ability to rely on himself prefers to express that his parents are rich, powerful or he came from a high family of such and such in society whilst he hates to mention that his life is negative of face downing situation or down-trodden circumstance. Such a one is useless to not only himself, but for his respective environment as if a thorn which impales into the body. Instead of declaring what is my father or something like this, one should try to say bravely as well as proudly what am I? It is clear that he is not his father, yet he himself. For the time being, there is a exception that one in most cases has to depend on others due to complex being of a man since he was born.
          Inadequate one likes better to stand steeping on other foot. It is a great miserable one would not perform anything for the sake of both himself and others. On one occasion the Buddha expounds that “Sabbaṃ paravasaṃ dukkhaṃ, sabbaṃ issariyaṃ sukhaṃ: All subjection to another is painful; all sovereignty is bless” (Udāna Pāḷi). We all have to confess that the above mention is absolutely true with our own respective experience in day to day life. Nonetheless we cannot neglect the good fortunes of others whom live comfortably in life even oneself, yet we also accept the factual condition of oneself that he is nothing but himself.
          Prince Siddhattha is one of the most fortunate one in the world, for he acquires everything he wish by the supporting of his father. If he would not have been seen the nature of life or depended on his father, there would not happened greatest changing in the world. Well, he was gifted one or genius, and accordingly I may not apply here in this case to ordinary people like us. Let’s try to find out the logical reasoning, on the other, in our day we have to see the famous ones in respective fields of politic, economic, social and education. Their generation however could not inherit of their father or masters etc. as equal status or more. It is hardly and rarely happened to see the same situation of generation to generation. As the above said one is nothing but himself and he therefore would not be famous his ancestors. But he can surely maintain their dignity by his own ability because everybody possesses respective talent of which he can create glory like his pioneers. Because of shirking responsibility, one would not preserve the credit of former people. It is not sound situation on future to the respective country when her nation grows in the cradle of the opportunist and one who has no sense of obligation.
          Everyone possesses golden opportunity to gain success in life without mentioning what their parents are, but taking proper supporting from them as well as his respective environment. It is noticed that “a person in vain tries to carry out the worthless tasks”. On the other hand, it is mentioned that man is the most powerful one in the world and we human accordingly are the mightiest one that the rest who can upgrade not only oneself but others by cultivating of own energies positively. We truly claim that we are not reflected glory in no way as a result.
