A story from Mahabharata
Once Arjuna asked Krishna-
Madhav.. What is this ‘successful life’?
Krishna took Arjuna to fly kites.
Arjuna was watching Krishna carefully flying a kite.
After a while Arjuna said-
Madhav.. Because of this thread, the kite is not able to move freely and upwards, should we break it? It will go higher.
Krishna broke the thread..
The kite went up a little more and then came down after waving and fell at a distant unknown place…
Then Krishna explained the philosophy of life to Arjuna.
Parth.. ‘The height we are at in life..
We often feel that certain things to which we are tied are preventing us from going higher; like :
And we want to be free from them…
In fact, these are the threads – which keep us at that height.
‘Without these threads we will go up once, but later we will have the same fate that happened to a kite without thread…’
“So, if you want to remain on the top in life, then never break your relationship with these threads.”
The height attained by successful balance of thread and kite-like attachment is called ‘successful life..”
