The inspiration for this topic is the story of King Prithu from Shrimad Bhagwat, a Hindu religious scripture. King Prithu did a lot of penance and as a result God appeared before him. God asked him to ask a boon. The King requested to get 10,000 ears to hear God’s praises and Satsang. Satsang is defined as company with an assembly of persons who listen to, talk about, and assimilate the truth.
The orator, Satish Sharma, who was explaining this story mentioned that we all hear things that we either remember or forget. If we hear with our two ears, we may forget but if we hear with all our 10,000 ears we will remember.
As I reflected on it, what have I heard with 10,000 ears? I know harsh words are up there! Those, I wish I would have heard with just two ears to forgive and forget. On the other hand, I wish I would have paid even more attention and heard the scriptures with 10,000 ears. I am sure that would help me experience Him.
What have you heard with your 10,000 ears?
And my mind
To keep it in
