Like King Brahmadatta, I was touched by the monkey chief’s sacrifice and wisdom. For me, this lovely story was a powerful reminder that joy and meaning in my life come not through satisfying desires, but through offering loving service and kindness to others. Reading the story, I remembered times in my life when offering to others has taken me from feeling uneasy, like Brahmadatta, to feeling deeply happy. The story has already inspired me today to choose loving actions.
Thank you, Gurumayi.

The selfless action of the monkey chief reminded me that, for me, the highest good of all is to serve with the well-being of others foremost in my mind. This is of utmost importance to me, and I have faith that this kind of action has a beneficial impact that can be far-reaching.
I also understood from the story that, when I align with the guidance and protection extended to me through the Guru’s grace, these blessings continue to extend through me to my loved ones and the world around me.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for your grace.
