Should we follow: ''Satyam Bruyat Priyam Bruyat Na Bruyat Satyam Apriyam''?I think most of us have heard the following story:
A king got his horoscope made. He showed it to an astrologer and asked him about his future. The astrologer checked the books of astrology and said: O King, all your relatives will die before you; you will perform their last rites''. The king became furious. He was very attached to his relatives and could not tolerate such prediction. He ordered the astrologer to be imprisoned.
Then the king consulted another astrologer. This astrologer was tactful. He found that the previous astrologer's prediction was correct. But he heard the fate of his predecessor. So, he said: 'O Mighty King, you have a very long life. You will live longer than all of your relatives''. The king was very pleased and honoured the astrologer.
That is the reason our elders have advised: ''Satyam Bruyat Priyam Bruyat Na Bruyat Satyam Apriyam''. But unfortunately I could not follow their valuable advice most of the time, which has been causing unnecessary trouble and tussle with others.
Do the Members follow this advice in their day-to-day life? Please furnish your opinion.
