So long as a man clinging hard to the transitory objects of life, he can never know true peace and happiness. This is exemplified the story of the crow and the piece of bread.

Once a crow got somehow a piece of bread. With the bread in its peak, it wanted to fly to a tree, and sitting on its branch, make a quiet meal of it. But a number of other crows pursued this crow to wrest the bread out of it. The crow with the bread flew with all its speeds in order to escape from the clutches of the others. It flew and flew hotly pursued by other crows, in all directions to save the bread in its beak. This went on for two or three hours.

The crow with the bread was dead tired as a result of its continuous flying and felt it would be well to drop the drop the piece of bread which was picked by another crow, which in turn was pursued by the other two crows. The first crow, having thrown away the piece of bread, flew to the branch of a tree and sitting under its cool shade, attained perfect rest and tranquillity.


Peace truly comes when we give up desire for the perishable things of the world.

Moral: Give up desires to gain peace.
