Wealth Of Tranquility


Good looks :

Recently I read an article in TOI “Good looks = not guilty”. This article tells how we judge people according to their looks. We have often supported to the good looking actors, even if they are the part of any criminal activity. There is one Hindi saying, which is also mentioned in TOI article :

“Pehle darshan dhari, phir gun vichari”

This saying fits in present scenarios, good looks (or good packaging) partially conceal the flaws. But this is the superficial way of winning hearts. If we talk about things, packaging will not work if the product is not good, quality always matter. The same way anyone can get the primary attention with the help of good looks  but to convert this attention to interest person should have qualities like honesty, kindheartedness..

Wealth :

If anyone says, “Money doesn’t matter” then either he is rich or he is lying or he came to know the real meaning of life (saint). We can’t deny the fact it is the one of the basic needs for life. But more money makes us more greedy, greed that is never ending. Until we lose something precious during this journey of getting more money like peace of mind, the company of loved ones or health, we never stop chasing it. The moment we feel this chase is worthless, we get the real wealth of tranquility.

This post is written for Indispire : Why is the world so focused on physical assets- bank-balance, material-possessions, external beauty/body/cleavage…? What’s the value of good thoughts, clear heart, inner beauty & values like honesty, discipline etc. today? What is important to you?#TreasuredAssets

  1. A foru thought! Making an impression first time with good looks is easy but sustaining that impression for long is not very easy. Excess of anything is bad and so is the truth with scarcity. That’s why Buddha advocated Middle Path – a balanced way to get the wealth of tranquility or eternal bliss.

  2. The looks and the wealth decides too many things in our life, and people will continue to judge others on the same. I wouldn’t think that it will change anytime soon, even as we can hope against it.


  3. that’s true.. I don’t know about others but for me it matters to some extent only.. A person can be good looking up to certain age and no body can assure that wealth (of money) will always stay with them.. u know life is like roller coaster ride.. no one can predict the future.. so judging people on basis of wealth and looks is completely foolishness
