Enjoyment, A real meaning!


I often hear some of my friends talking about ‘Enjoying Life’. For most of them the connotation of which is having late night parties, noisy outings, spending on fashionable clothes and showing off. I wonder whether such activities indeed give enjoyment to a person or real enjoyment/happiness lies in having a sober and meaningful life with a desire to help the needy. I feel that for people like us who are fortunate enough not to be worrying about the basic hygienic needs of life, enjoyment lies in paying back to the Society in whatever small measures one can. As Sikh Scriptures (Gurbani) aptly puts it.

” ਘਾਲ ਖਾਏ ਕਿਛ ਹਥੋਂ ਦੇ, ਨਾਨਕ ਰਾਹ ਪਛਾਣੇ ਸੇ ”
Ghaal Khaa-ay Kichh Hathahun Day-ay, Nanak Rah Pachhaneh Se (Page 1245 Shri Guru Granth Sahib)
“One who eats by earnings from hard work and donates part of it, Recognizes the True path.”

Have an enjoyable day and a meaningful life.
