Beware What is Wished

Story-day is for cultural exploration, puraanas and parables and finding out about leading lights in spiritual philosophy.

Today, a simple tale…

The Kites and the Swans

The kites of olden times, as well as the Swans, had the privilege
of song.  But having heard the neigh of the horse, they were so
enchanted with the sound, that they tried to imitate it; and, in
trying to neigh, they forgot how to sing. 

The desire for imaginary benefits often involves the loss of present blessings. 


  1. 'Distant valleys look green' for people.They don't count the blessings they have.Better to be satisfied with our possessions,at the same time trial for achievable things should continue. Short and sweet description.

  2. Ah yes, ancient aphorisms hold such truths 'watch what you wish for, indeed' ~ gorgeous Swan photo ~ Happy Day to you ~ ^_^
