It is said that of all the experiences in life, the loss of a child is the worst pain that can be inflicted on anyone.
There is a very interesting story of a Realized man. He got married to a wonder lady and was extremely happy with life. He was enjoying his life with his wife tremendously, and they had a son. Seeing such a lovely kid, he was totally besotted by him. He would play with him day and night and love him beyond anything. When the son was 5 he died in a sudden accident. His wife was inconsolable, and the world was shocked. They would come for condolence and see this person smiling and happy. So people asked him – “Aren’t you sad about the passing away of your son?”. He would tell them – well, when he wasn’t in my life, I was very happy. When he came he brought a lot of happiness with him too. I gave all that I could to him in his life. And he gave me all the love that he could give me in my life. I feel there wasn’t anything more I or he could do for each other. Now, he is gone out of my life I am still as happy as I was before he came into my life.
