Laugh your way to Enlightenment / Moksha / Nirvana

The laughing Buddha or Hotel was a great zen master and legend has a great story which is so inspirational for all of us. The jolly good saint that he was used to go from one place to the other. He went to the Town Square and soon people gathered around him. He was so funny looking and always smiling that people used to crowd around him. He would then distribute sweets and small toys to all children who had gathered around him. Then keep his bag down, look to the sky and just start laughing. He used to laugh madly and he was not interested whether others laughed or not. Soon his laughter used to be contagious and all who had gathered would start to laugh. The whole town used to laugh and laugh. After sometime he would pick the bag, which he had kept down, smile to all, and go to the next town. All his life he did only this action and it was said that many people attained Nirvana, enlightenment just through this process. Hence he was called as the laughing Buddha because Buddha is someone who is enlightened and laughter was his unique method. Never before him or never after him such a simple aspect was used to achieve what all humans strive for Moksha or enlightenment.

He is called as the Laughing Buddha. Now let us understand the significance of his name. Buddha is anyone who is enlightened, merged with Oneness with existence or one who has attained Nirvana. And the beauty of his method was Laughter. The most precious amp; ultimate purpose of this very life is Nirvana or Moksha, and what better way to achieve than through Laughter. I think no one in this whole of humanity has ever discovered a more simpler path than the Laughing Buddha.

So just laugh your way to Enlightenment. Now you would wonder how only through Laughter one can achieve the biggest spiritual purpose of life. Read in the next blog the power of laughter
