THE MOST AMAZING THING ON EARTH
When once Brahma asked the sage Narada, what was the most amazing thing he noticed on earth, Narada replied, "The most amazing thing I saw was this" the dying and weeping over the dead. Those who are themselves nearing death every moment are weeping over those who have died, as if their weeping has any effect, either to revive the dead or prevent their own death! Brahma asked him to tell another. Narada said, "Another amazing thing is: Everyone fears the consequences of sin, but goes on singing nevertheless! Everyone craves for the consequence of Punya (meritorious acts), but everyone is reluctant to do any meritorious act!"
