    • Kisa Gotami was deeply saddened by the death of her son, and she went from door to door asking for help.
    • Someone told her to talk to the Buddha, Sakyamuni, who then asked her to procure a handful of mustard seeds.
    • This gave hope to Gotami that her son might be revived.
    • However, the condition imposed by Sakyamuni was that the seeds must be brought from a house where no one has lost a loved one to death.
    • The search for Kisa Gotami made her realize that sorrows are a part of life and that one can find peace only by accepting them.

    How did Kisa Gotami realise the truth?

    • The Buddha asked Kisa if she had found a house where no one had lost a loved one, but Kisa was unable to find any such house.
    • She noticed the flickering lights of the city and realized that people’s lives are like these lights – they rise and then disappear.
    • In this way, she came to realise that life and death are natural processes.
