A king announced in his kingdom that a photo contest would be held in the country and the title would be "Picture of Peace". The artist who creates the best picture will be awarded valuable prizes and honors. Most of the painters of the country participated in this competition and created a 'picture of peace' according to their own understanding.
When all the pictures were put up for exhibition, Bad Shah decided to see all the pictures himself. Out of all the pictures, the king liked only two pictures but had to choose only one picture for the prize. The first picture was of a calm lake. This lake was presented as a mirror. The lake was surrounded by green mountains. An open blue sky was shown above, in which clouds like cotton cheeks were visible. Everyone who saw this picture would say that this picture can be a true representation of peace and tranquility. Surely the king will choose him and the reward will go to this artist.

In the second picture, there were mountains too, but dry rocks and hoofed ravines, and dull mountains were shown. A very gloomy sky was shown above these mountains which were pouring heavy rain. The thunder of the clouds made it more terrifying. On one side of these mountains, the waterfall was flowing very loudly and there was no peace anywhere. But behind this noisy waterfall, small bushes had grown in the rock where a river had made its nest, and between the rocky rocks, the terrifying sky, and the noisy waterfall, that river was very comfortable and peaceful. He was sitting in the nest.
Which picture do you think should get the prize?
The king chose the second picture as the prize. Because according to the king, peace and tranquility are not what is with the situation (meaning where there are no problems, no difficulties, no problems), but peace and tranquility are where all these problems and difficulties are. May your heart be at peace even in the midst of all of them. Life is hard, it's not always fair.

Life is not always the way we want it to be, in which there is no pain, no work, all the time there is happiness and contentment, there is no peace. The reality is the opposite.

A teacher has said: The world will never devote itself to making us happy.
We can deal with all these pains and sufferings by adopting a constructive approach. The fun is when we accept all these realities of life and make our situation better. If life is not fair, it does not mean at all that it cannot be good, profitable, and joyful. Living a full life with all these problems is not the right life. Suku in Waman is actually called the inner state.
