THE TEST


A woman is tested
When she has got nothig with her.

A man is tested
When he has got everythig with him.

Have you ever been tested?
I have not been!

    How beautiful it is to see a pearl in two shell! I think the Test here is in reference with content and self discepline of the soul. A woman is tested when she has nothing with her. How she manages to retain her calmness and purity of the soul is a test to her as many of them struggle in between. Whereas a man, when he has everything with him, his soul tends to deteriorate seeing the luxury and tries to decieve himself. The test for him to overcome such distractions and to complete the Purushartha.

    For believers it is a matter of test by God and for others, its a matter of test of morality and generally accepted values.

    A twisting write sir. Gives way to a number of interpretations! (Report) Reply

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
