Pearls of Wisdom : A Word of Encouragement – Series of discourse by H.H. Srimajjagadguru Shankaracharya SriSri Raghaveshwara Bharathi Mahaswamiji

Sri Samsthana

A person who was working in a company in the U.S. was entangled in some internal dispute and was subsequently dismissed from service.  With a heavy heart he returned home and informed his wife about the incident.


His wife told him-
“Please don’t worry.  Whatever happens is for our own good.”


The husband asked her-
“what will be the means of our livelihood now?”


The wife brought some money she had saved secretly and gave it to her husband and said-
“This money will take care of our needs.”
And, since he writes good articles, she motivated him to continue that hobby and write good books.


The man was inspired by his wife’s words of encouragement. He put in a lot of effort and published several novels and became rich and famous.


One word of encouragement at times of difficulties and distress can work wonders in someone’s life.


Let us be such people who bring about a transformation in some one’s life.
