Beauty Is World's Biggest Glory

Once a philosopher read that, "Beauty is world's biggest glory. Worship, knowledge, deeds and servicing are trivial ways for the attainment of God. In reality beauty is the only correct way." He further read, "A person can attain God only in the natural beauty of the environment which is enclosed with beautiful mountain ranges, where the rivers flow in their innocence, where there is purity in the ambiance." Since his own house was in the desert so after reading this the philosopher left his house in the search of beauty. For a long time he stayed in the midst of the mesmerising beauty of nature surrounded with mountains and rivers. Then one day he returned back to his home but only after a few days he felt weary and he prepared to move out again.

Seeing this a local saint asked him, "Where are you going now?" The philosopher replied, "I am going away from here, to a place where I can find beauty which can give peace to my heart and soul." Saint asked, "Till today you have wandered in the search of beauty but how much did you contribute in the creation of beauty? You kept running away from your own house and land, one day God will ask you that even after seeing my numerous beautiful creations why didn't you make any effort to beautify one less beautiful place? Have you ever thought that planting a flower plant or growing some grass can even make this desert look beautiful. You only think about your personal welfare." These words touched philosopher's heart and he stayed back and made his contributions in the creation of beauty there and earned self-satisfaction.

Moral: True happiness lies in social welfare. Happiness is incomplete if we alone are happy and others are unhappy.
