Source Salt from a House Who Hasn't Seen Death

This Youtube shares 4 stories of Lord Buddha, I like to elaborate to you one of the story which I particularly like.

During Buddha's time, a woman brought a dead baby and requested Lord Buddha to revive the child.

Buddha said he would do what was necessary, however, he would need a vital ingredient to bring about the resurrection.

Lord Buddha requested the woman to source salt from a house who has never seen death. The woman went through house by house, started with great joy, but to no end she could find such a house.

At the end of the day, she went back kneeling in front of Lord Buddha and said that she understood the lesson - she is not the only person in the world who have suffered the loss of a loved one.

The moral of the story: Everyone has to go through pain in their life - pain, loss, depression are part of life.

Be grateful today and always be compassionate to others and try to understand the pain of others - everybody has problems in life.
