An intelligent youth attached to ShriMaharaj, returned from travelling abroad on a scholarship. When he met ShriMaharaj, ShriMaharaj said, "What unusual thing did you see there ?" The youth said, "Maharaj, I saw the lean­ing tower of Pisa. Upon this ShriMaharaj said, "You had to go abroad to see these three wonders. I have seen three wonders right here. Everyone is acquainted with their own 'self. One stays with him one's entire life. But one does not understand his essence; this is the first wonder. Ev­eryone applies the mind for conducting all affairs of ev­eryday life. Whether it is pleasure or pain, man experi­ences it with the help of his mind. Despite this, the mind is not under anyone's control; this is the second wonder. And everyone complains every instant that wordly life is devoid af happiness, but no one is prepared to leave it; this is the third wonder."
