10 Second President

[Our guest blogger gives us an interesting analogy on Lakh Choraasi (840,000 births we go through before getting a human form). This is a first in a series of post the will explore this topic]

Congratulations, you are now President of the United States of America.

10 seconds later -

OK you are done, you are back to being you.

What did you accomplish? What did you achieve? What were your high points? What were your low points? How does it feel?

That's it. That's what human life is like. Say we were to live 100 years (let's take an optimistic view), we would get to be President for approximately 10 seconds. That is the equivalent of having human form - after 8.4 million births. This is Samsara - a reality that is equally expounded throughout Hindu Sanatan Dharma and beyond).

And today, we not only have we overcome our arduous odyssey and washed ashore to this unique birth not only as a human being but also as a bhakta of our True Guru who is here to guide us in our, relatively, short time here! Let's make the most of our last little bit.
