Self-Appraisal

A little boy went into a drug store, reached for a soda carton and
pulled it over to the telephone. He climbed onto the carton so that
he could reach the buttons on the phone and proceeded to punch in
seven digits. The store-owner observed and listened to the
conversation:

The boy asked, "Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?

The woman replied, "I already have someone to cut my lawn. ""Lady, I
will cut your lawn for half the price of the person who cuts your
lawn now." replied boy.

The woman responded that she was very satisfied with the person who
was presently cutting her lawn. The little boy found more perseverance
and offered,

"Lady, I'll even sweep your curb and your sidewalk, so on Sunday
you will have the prettiest lawn in all of North Palm beach, Florida.
"Again the woman answered in the negative. With a smile on his face,
the little boy replaced the receiver.

The store-owner, who was listening to all this, walked over to the
boy and said, "Son... I like your attitude; I like that positive
spirit and would like to offer you a job.

"The little boy replied, "No thanks, I was just checking my
performance with the job I already have. I am the one who is working
for that lady, I was talking to!"

Ramo Vigrahavan Dharmah

A great verse from Ramayana: आहार निद्रा भय मैथुनं च  सामान्यमेतत् पशुभिर्नराणाम् । धर्मो हि तेषामधिको विशेष:  धर्मेण हीनाः पशुभिः समानाः ॥ AhAra-nidrA-bhaya-maithunam cha samAnam_etat_pashubhir_narANAm | dharmo hi teShAm adhiko visheSho dharmeNa hInAH pashubhiH samAnAH|| Eating, Sleep, Fear and Sex ; these habits are common between human beings and animals. It is the Dharma which is the special quality of the human beings. Without the Dharma, they are similar to the animals.  Rama is The Embodiment Of Dharma.  Maaricha, while speaking to Ravana- (Aranya Kandam 37-13): रामो विग्रहवान् धर्मः साधुः सत्य पराक्रमः | राजा सर्वस्य लोकस्य देवानाम् इव वासवः || ३-३७-१३|| raamo vigrahavaan dharmaH saadhuH satya paraakramaH | raajaa sarvasya lokasya devaanaam iva vaasavaH || 3-37-13 "Rama is the embodiment of righteousness, he is an equable person with truthfulness as his valour, and as with Indra to all gods he is the king of entire world.

Story about Samsara from Vidura in Maha Bharatha

From Sri Maha Bharatham - 11th Maha Parva (Stri Parva) - Jalapradanika Sub Parva - 5th Chapter "Dhritarashtra said, ‘Tell me in detail everything about the ways of that intelligence by which this wilderness of duties may be safely covered.’ "Vidura said, ‘Having bowed down to the Self-create, I will obey thy behest by telling thee how the great sages speak of the wilderness of life. A certain  brahmana,  living in the great world, found himself on one occasion in a large inaccessible forest teeming with beasts of prey. It abounded on every side with lions and other animals looking like elephants, all of which were engaged in roaring aloud. Such was the aspect of that forest that Yama himself would take fright at it. Beholding the forest, the heart of the  brahmana  became exceedingly agitated. His hair stood on end, and other signs of fear manifested themselves, O scorcher of foes! Entering it, he began to run hither and thither, casting his eyes on every point of
