Enjoy Multiple Lives in Each Moment

On a beautiful Summer evening, Lord Vishnu mischievously asks his friend, ” Hey Narad, Can you go through the city with this pot filled with ghee (liquid purified butter) without spilling a single drop?” Naradji, in a light mood himself, picks up the pot, very carefully goes down the steps of the palace, and very cautiously finishes the tour of the city and proudly puts the pot on the table in front of the Lord.

“What did you see in the city, Narad? Were the kids playing? Was there a fragrance in the air? Did you hear the music near the park?” Lord asked. “Are you kidding me?” Naradji retorted in disbelief, “All my attention was fixated on the ghee, my Lord.”

In life, we too are preoccupied with irrational anxieties that we end up wasting our precious moments. What can we do about this? How can we change this? Answer is simple. Learn Mindfulness; be fully present in this moment, do not worry about the future, do not lament the past. Just be totally immersed in the present moment!


We need to experience each moment with openness, honesty, and with curiosity. We need to be pleasantly aware of our physical sensations, our emotions, and our intellect. We need to be fully aware of the feelings of others without any expectation, bias or prejudgement. We need to explore nature with curiosity and openness. In short, we need to be fully present in each moment. We need to find these lives buried in each moment. If we practice mindfulness, we will find a multitude of lives in each moment. If we do not, our whole life will feel like a fleeting moment.

“When I went to bed, I was 18. When I woke up, I was 81!” One of my patients recently shared this with me. Let us make sure this does not happen to us. Let us make a habit of being fully present in each moment. Let us cherish every moment.
