Lady and the Needle

One old lady lost a needle in the house,
but she was searching for it outside
in the moonlight.
One man asked her:
“O lady, what are you searching here?”
She replied: I lost a needle in the house;
there is darkness inside;
so I am searching for the needle here.”

Worldly people are like this old lady.
They are searching for happiness in the object,
where real happiness does not exist.

Look within; control the mind;
you will find the object of your quest in your own Atman.
