[Music] once a king called upon all of his wise men and asked them is there any mantra or any suggestion which works in every situation in every circumstances in every place and in every time in every joy every sorrow every defeat and every victory one answer for all questions something which can help me when none of you is available to advise me tell me is there any mantra all the wise men were puzzled by the king's question they thought and thought after a lengthy discussion and old wise man suggested something which appealed to all of them they went to the king and gave him something written on a paper with the condition that the king was not to see it out of curiosity only in extreme danger when the king finds himself alone and there seems to be no way only then he can see it the king put the paper under his diamond ring some time later the neighbor's king attacked his kingdom king and his army fought bravely but lost the battle the king had to flee on his horse the enemies were following him getting closer and closer suddenly the king found himself standing at the end of the road that road was not going anywhere underneath there was a rocky valley 1000 feet deep if he jumped into it he would be finished and he could not return because it was a small road the sound of enemies horses was approaching fast the king became restless there seemed to be no way then suddenly he saw the diamond in his ring shining in the sun and he remembered the message hidden in the ring he opened the diamond ring and read the message the message was this two shall pass the king read it and again read it suddenly something struck him yes this two shall pass he said to himself only a few days ago i was enjoying my kingdom i was the mightiest of all the kings yet today the kingdom and all my pleasures have gone i am here trying to escape from enemies like those days of luxuries have gone this day of danger two will pass and a calmness came on his face he kept standing there the place where he was standing was full of natural beauty he had never known that such a beautiful place was also a part of his kingdom the revelation of the message had a great effect on him he relaxed and forgot about those following him after a few minutes he realized that the noise of the horses and the enemies coming was receding they moved into some other part of the mountain and were nowhere near him the king was very brave he reorganized his army and fought again he defeated the enemy and regained his empire when he returned to the empire after victory he was deceived with much fanfare the whole capital was rejoicing in the victory everyone was in a festive mood flowers were being showered on king from every house from every corner people were dancing and singing for a moment king said to himself i am one of the bravest and greatest kings it is not easy to defeat me with all the reception and celebration he saw an ego emerging in him suddenly the diamond of his drink flashed in the sunlight and reminded him of the message he opened it and read it again there was written this two shall pass he became silent his face went through a total change from the egoist he moved to a state of utter humbleness he thought that if these two shall pass then it is not yours the defeat was not yours the victory is not yours you are just a watcher everything passes by we are witness of all this we are the perceivers life comes and goes happiness comes and goes sorrow comes hand goes all these moments will pass away therefore i should not get attached with all this [Music] if we see in our lives and silently evaluate it we will find that this two shall pass think of the moments of joy and victory in your life think of the moments of sorrow and defeat are they permanent no they all come and pass away life just passes away there is nothing permanent in this world everything changes accept the law of change think over it from your own perspective you have seen all the changes you have survived all setbacks all defeats and all sorrows all have passed away the problems in the present they too will pass away because nothing remains forever joy and sorrow are the two faces of the same coin they both will pass away you are just a witness to change experience it understand it and whenever you are going through difficult time in your life always remember that these two shall pass [Music] you
