Never judge too quickly, see the total picture.


There was a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn not to judge things too quickly. So he sent them each on a quest, in turn, to go and look at a pear tree that was a great distance away.

The first son went in the winter, the second in the spring, the third in summer and the fourth son in the fall.

When they had all gone and come back, he called them together to describe what they had seen.

The first son said that the tree was ugly, bent and twisted.

The second son said, no, that it was covered with green buds and full of promise.

The third son disagreed; he said it was laden with blossoms that smelled so sweet and looked so beautiful. It was the most graceful thing he had ever seen.

The last son disagreed with all of them. He said it was ripe and drooping with fruit - full of life and fulfillment.

The man then explained to his sons that they were all right, because they had each seen but only one season in the tree's life.

He told them that you cannot judge a tree, or a person by only one season, and that the essence of who they are and the pleasure, joy, and love that comes from that life can only be measured at the end, when all the seasons are up!


Onecan never judge the lives of others, because each person knows onlyhis pain and renunciation. It's one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but its another to think that yours is the only path.

When one is able to resist the temptation to judge others, he can see them as teachers of forgiveness in his life, reminding him that one can only have peace of mind when he forgives rather than judge.

The secret of attraction is to love yourself. Attractive people judge neither themselves nor others. They are open to gestures of love. They thing about love and express their love in every action. They know that love is not a mere sentiment but the ultimate truth at the heart of the universe.

Dont judge anyone too quickly. Love, forgive and forget.

Hari Om!!


Never Explain Yourself To Anybody
Becoz the person who likes you dosent need it
And the person who dislikes you wont believe it.
