Once upon a time, a Raven was very unhappy with his life. One day he started crying while sitting on a branch of a tree.

Unhappy Raven

A monk was sitting under a tree. Just then the crow’s cry fell on the monk’s cheek. The Monk raised his head and saw that, A Raven was crying. So, the monk asked him, what’s the matter, my friend, why are you crying?

The raven said, Oh! Wise one, I am very upset with my life. No one Loves me. People shoo me away in disgrace. No one gives me anything to eat everyone hates me. Death is better than such a life.

Hearing the raven Monk’s heart was filled with compassion. He said to the Raven, “My friend, we should learn to be happy in whatever condition we are in”. But the Raven did not understand the wisdom of the monk and kept on crying.

Then the monk said, don’t be upset, “Tell me, what do you want to be”. I can make you that with my mantra. Raven became happy and said, “Oh! Blessed one, if you want to do me a favor, please make me a swan”. The monk said ok I will make you a swan. But first, go to Swan and asked him whether he is happy with his life or not. You go and find out till then I wait for you here.

Raven Meet with Swan

Raven Happily flew away to meet Swan. He saw a swan swimming in a pond. He went to Swan and said how beautiful you are, you are as white as milk. Everyone loves you you must be the happiest bird in the world. Swan said to the Raven with a sad heart No my friend I am not happy. There are so many beautiful colors in the world, but I don’t have any color white is nothing a color. I think a parrot must be the happiest bird in the world. He is so colorful.

Hearing this the Raven flew away from there and reached the parrot. He said to the parrot Oh parrot you are so colorful and beautiful. You must be the happiest bird in the world. The parrot said to the Raven with a sad heart No my friend I am not happy. You see people keep parrots in cages. I am always afraid that someone may hold me and lock me in a cage. I think a peacock is the happiest bird in this world. He is also much more colorful than me.

Hearing this the Raven flew around looking for a peacock. After searching for a long time. He finally got a peacock which was in a cage in a zoo. The Raven Approached the peacock and said, “Dear Peacock you are so beautiful, every day thousands of people come to see you. I think you must be the happiest bird on the planet”. The peacock replied sadly. He said, “I always thought that I was the most beautiful and happy bird on the planet but because of my beauty I am entrapped in this zoo.

Raven Meet with Peacock. Who is Happy?

The peacock took a deep sigh and said I am not happy my friend. The Raven was surprised to hear this from the peacock he asked him if you are not happy then whom do you think is the happiest bird in the world?

The peacock said I have examined the zoo very carefully and I have realized that you, the Raven is the only bird not kept in the cage. People don’t try to catch you and entrap you in the cages so I wish if I were a raven I could happily roam everywhere and I would be free.

Hearing this, the raven flew away from there and that day for the first time he was feeling happy to be a raven. He returned to that monk and said, “Oh wise one, I do not want to be anything else. I am fine what I am.

If you see our lives we will find that this is our problem too. We make unnecessary comparison with others and then becomes sad and unhappy. You should learn to be happy with what you have instead of looking at what you don’t have.

There will always be someone who will have more or less than you have.  A person who is satisfied with what he or she has is the happiest person in the world.
