The author has presented a nice and useful thread about the useless things in life. My comprehension of them is as follows:
1. The first point is that parents constantly try their best to provide their child a better and happier life without consideration of what circumstances they are going through. In return, if the same children do not support their parents when their parents truly need them, then they should be persuaded that they do not have any children.
2. We have seen that many times we eat excess food and even many times we throw away food. This is simply because we are full. Many people are very fond of food and always eat their favorite food, otherwise tantrums. If a situation arises that a person is starving and does not have food, then even a small piece of bread for him will not be less than a tasty meal. At this time, every banquet in front of this piece of bread will be useless for him.
3.Only drinkable or potable water can quench thirst. If somebody is swimming in the expensive swimming pool, then the water there is useless for the person to quench his thirst.
4.This point is stating that if the wife is too expensive, then most of the income will not be utilized properly. Due to a lack of reserves, if there is any difficulty arises in the future then the family has to live a life of poverty. Therefore, if the wife does not realize that bad times may come, cannot support her husband at that moment of scarcity. If the wife knows that poverty might hit then she always saves some money out of the income which will serve the family in the time of crisis.
5.How can a king who cannot control his anger do justice? An angry person can neither hear the problem nor take any appropriate judgment. Such a king will take the country like a plight. Therefore, such a king is worthless.
6. The relationship between Guru and disciple is very deep. If a disciple cannot follow the Guru's command, such a disciple is useless. In such a situation there is no scope for development.
7. If one consciously atones for his sin, he can be forgiven. On the other hand, if someone washes his sins with holy water and sins again, then that holy water is of no use.
