Their was one boy. He was very clever. He had many talent. He knew how to shoot arrow, He learned to make beautiful home.
So, whenever he returned to home he used to talk to people and say with Pride that no one in the world who could match me. I know that much which is impossible for any person to know.
Bhagavaan Gautam Buddha saw him and decided to teach him a lesson. They took a appearance of an old man and with a begging bowl in his hand came to him.
The boy asked "Who are you?"
Buddha said: "I am a man who has control over himself."
The boy did not understand his point.
He said, "what do you mean?"
Buddha said: "Some men knows how to shoot the arrow, then some know how to sail a boat, some knows to make a beautiful home. But the wise man knows how to Rule over the himself."
The boy he did not understand anything, then asked: "What do you mean by rule over yourself?"
Buddha said: If someone is full of his praise and he does not becomes happy or he is hurt still he does not become upset. He has a control over himself. Such a man is not proudy of his skills.
Buddha's words had such an impact on the child that he completely stopped boasting that day.
Every man God has given his specialty someone. But the person should not pride themselves on. An arrogant person is suffering more victims. Remember ...
For every ego their is a mountain in this world. When there's a big mountain to his ego, he is immersed in misery.
Your Pride tells you that you are not in control. And he does not know to rule over himself.
