Find Satisfaction
Find Satisfaction

I would like to share one of my favorite stories. Long back, there was a beggar in a city named Shibu. He wished to get a pair of shoes. Every morning, he prayed to God to get it. A few years later, he realized God was not taking his problem seriously. He tried to arrange some money to fulfill his wish. But He failed. He started complaining to God. He used to murmur, “You are giving a lot of money, big houses, and costly cars to people. Can’t you give me a pair of shoes?” But God did not respond to his prayers. Shibu was crying over spilled milk and spending his days sadly. One day, he was begging on the city road and crossed the path of another beggar who did not have legs. Seeing his smiling face and the way he moved forward using his hip, Shibu became ambivalent. He ran to the temple and thanked God. He said to God, “It’s fine that I don’t have shoes, but I have my legs to walk”. 

How To Find Satisfaction?

In my teenage years, my grandmother advised me to always be satisfied.

I asked her, “I don’t have a boyfriend or money, how will I be satisfied?”.

She replied, “while growing up, you will find it yourself”.

I noticed when I have ice cream I become happy. Not only ice cream, burgers, pizza, soda, cake, and chocolate also contributed to increasing my happiness and satisfaction. To hold my happiness for a long, I preferred to keep those in my daily snacks. My parents snatched my happiness when I became 75 kg before even eighteen years. I stopped eating junk food, but I was addicted to being a satisfied person.

The Quest

In my mind, I had thought that if I got a job and earned money, I will be happy for the rest of my life. I started preparing hard and got a job in a Govt. office. It gave me a lot of satisfaction. After a few months, I realized regardless I work with diligence I’ll get my salary until retirement at 60. The enormous bubble burst after seeing the dirty politics in the office. I left the job.

I called my grandma and asked, “How will I be satisfied? It is not possible.”

She replied, “Be patient. You will find it yourself.”

Later, I planned to get married to a good person. It happened exactly the way I wanted. Now I am spending all my time doing household work. You all are intelligent, to guess my satisfaction. 

The Change

Finally, to get satisfaction, I started doing sleeping meditation. One day, our maid, Moli, told me her daughter is a talented student, but she is weak in math. She started crying that she could not arrange private tuition for her daughter. Later, I thought, if I spend an hour and give tuition to Moli’s daughter, I can use my intellect. Definitely, they will get some help and who knows, I may have a good time as well. I told Moli to send her daughter to our home. I started teaching Moli’s daughter in my extra time for free. The number of students is increasing every month.

Today I can firmly say that I am thrilled and satisfied. Actually, I learned to be satisfied. I stopped searching for happiness and satisfaction in objects and people. Now I do things being in a happy state.


Each of us has problems in our daily life. All of us have many reasons to be happy as well. If we always pay attention to our weaknesses, and problems, no matter how much we achieve, we will remain unhappy and unsatisfied. Pamper yourself. Never compare with others. Be proud of every minor improvement.

After trying many things and spending many years, I realized, no material things can give us satisfaction. When we do something unconditionally for other people, we will get happiness and satisfaction automatically.

Don’t be sad about what you don’t have. Take care of what you have. Expand and raise your hand to help others. Especially in this pandemic (covid-19) situation, the world needs your contribution. I am wishing all of you to do excellent in your life and others’ lives too. Be happy, be satisfied. I am sure one day you will find it yourself.
