Women’s day

Post is uploaded from WhatsApp message so credit goes to unknown writer.

When I heard the story of the Gautam Buddha, my question was always about his wife and son that he left behind…this write-up by Vikram Bhattacharya touches that part of the story

.
.
.
He left her in the middle of the night, the very night their son was born.
.
.
When she heard the news
she was naturally devastated.
.
.
Yet, she did not complain but her
life lost all meaning.
.
.
The only reason for her to live now was her son. She wanted him to grow up to be a man that the world would look up to.
.
.
Her friends and relatives came
around and asked her to forget
about the man who had left her
and start life all over again.
.
.
They asked her to marry again
but she refused. She was young
& beautiful & suitors queued up
outside her door, but she refused each one of them.
.
.
.
Then one fine day He came back !
.
.
He stood in front of her and she could hardly remember him as the man who had left her.
.
.
“They call you the Buddha now….” she said to him gently.
.
.
“I hear they do,” he answered in
a measured, calm fashion.
.
.
“What does the word mean?” she inquired further…
.
.
.
“I think it means the enlightened one, a knower,” he replied…..
.
.
.

She smiled and then a silence.
.
.
.
“I suppose we have both learned something. Your lessons O Buddha, will make the world richer in spirit, but my lesson will unfortunately remain largely unknown.” She reflected deeply….
.
.
.
.
“ And what lesson is that ? ” The Buddha probed.
.
.
.
Her eyes sparkled with unshed tears,
.
.
“That a courageous woman does not need anyone to complete her…..
.
.
.
.
SHE IS COMPLETE ON HER OWN”
.
.
Saluting the spirit of womanhood
Happy Women’s day
