Interesting thought …

I was at the Gurudwara (from wikipedia – A Gurdwara (Punjabi: ਗੁਰਦੁਆਰਾ, gurdu’ārā or ਗੁਰਦਵਾਰਾ, gurdvārā), meaning “the doorway to the Guru”, is the Sikh place of worship and may be referred to as a Sikh temple. The most famous and the holiest gurdwara is the Harmandir Sahib in Amritsar, in northern India. ) Bangla Sahib on Ashok Road, New Delhi.

A lady at there had a very interesting thought for a little boy. After the ritual of bowing before the ‘Guru Granth Sahibji‘ this kid was waiting for his turn to drink ‘Amrit‘ (The Nectar of Immortality). This fellow was so tired of waiting that he said – “Ab mere ko pani pilao”. The lady very softly said, “Beta paani samajh ke piyoge to paani ka kaam karega, amrit samajh ke piyoge to amrit ka kaam karega”.
Translation: If you have it thinking it’s water, it will just quench your thirst, If you drink it thinking that this is the ‘Nectar of Immortality’ it will act like so!

Very interesting insight I thought.
