Success Story of Gautam Buddha

Once Gautam Buddha was passing through a village with his monks. People were upset due to lack of water system in that village. The people of the village had to go long distances to fetch water. There was a huge ground near the village, in which many small pits were dug. To satisfy his curiosity, a monk asked Gautam Buddha, what is the use of so many pits dug in this village ground?

Buddha smilingly replied to his monk that,  Dear monk, there is a water problem in this village, that is why the villagers have dug these small pits in search of water. On hearing this, the monk started searching for water in those pits, but he could not find even a drop of water.

Then he tells Gautam Buddha that there is no water in these pits. Gautam Buddha says, do you see the crowd of people there? All of them are going away from the village towards a river to fetch water. On this the monk asks, is there no water at all in the land of this village?

Gautam Buddha says- There is water, but there is no one in the village who can find water. The monk does not understand the words of Buddha. Then Gautam Buddha says, the people of the village have made so many pits in the ground in search of water. But despite this they did not get water.

Do you know why? The reason for this is that hard work has not been done at the right place to solve the problem. If the people of the village, instead of making many different pits, had done only one pit in the right direction, which was equal to hundred pits, then they would have definitely got water.

Learning- From this story related to Gautam Buddha, we get to learn that, in the same way the human mind also runs in hundred directions. But if work is done by concentrating the mind in one direction, then the goal can definitely be reached and success can also be achieved. The reason for failure is the wandering of the mind.
