About the Book

Unique as fingerprints is every story of emotion, precious is the value of every moral in proportion.

Deep and vast like the sea is the world of senses five. Where emotions rise like bobbles in the wide and varied sky of life.

Valuable and steady is our inside as our outside shall fade away, sensible is he who can make the real from the fake.

Tending the heart of virtues, illumining the sense of senses, blooming the petals of the soul, is Essence of hundred senses.

These enriching stories comprise the essential nectar of life, sustaining us with their sweetness, yet acting as the bee of enlightenment whose sharp sting awakens our soul.

They are useful like the legendary kamdhenu and life-nourishing like the potent sanjivini.

In times of tension, collision and fragmentation these erudite stories help restore vigour, vitality and sagacity thereby, renewing our life, cleansing our soul and adding beauty to our emotions.

Thus, this book is the elixir of life that must be read, contemplated and absorbed.


Everyone has an existence in this world but only a few have towering personalities. Existence is gained easily but the personality has to be developed over a period of time. Many factors come into play in the development of the personality but good company and good literature are foremost. Good advice, good thought and good company help us to develop a character and a positive attitude necessary to face adverse situations in life. This disposition transforms selfishness into selfless service and sacrifice. Negative thoughts are eliminated and lofty thoughts begin to flow easily enabling us to instil good virtues. These not only provide us immense strength but also form a solid base from which emanates an amiable personality.

Human life revolves around virtues. Virtues are both inborn and inculcated. Inborn virtues result from past deeds whereas inculcated virtues are the product of one’s present behaviour. A spiritual and ethical environment reinforce good virtues. Good stories admirably help to create this environment. The morals conveyed through these stories are quite easily transformed into virtues.

In the present book, we have adopted the method of storytelling to reiterate the morals inherent in the traditional set-up if life. Philosophers’ sayings and quotations have a permanent effect. The pointed messages contained in them leave a lasting impression on the human mind. Brevity and meaningfulness characterize such quotes and stories. These quotes and stories loaded with wisdom and derived from age-old experience, mythology, historical events and natural laws tend to become universally accepted.

In this book, we have put together moral and attitude-building stores. These legends have been told briefly with some facts being stated explicitly. The essence has been given preference over the presentation of the stories. In each story the essentials emerge at the end like the small quantity of milk. The striking and important facts make the stories not only readable and unforgettable but adorable as well; thereby bringing an effect in every wake of life.

Just as massive aircraft, rockets and machines consist of many small parts, quotes and sayings proven by several short stories form the basis of a great life. These tales of wisdom embody the ideals of numerous sages and narrate inspiring events from the lives of devotees, scholars and illustrious kings. Virtues like politeness, truthfulness, fearlessness, justice, bravery, compassion, tolerance and dutifulness from the essence of these stores. These tales are characterized by their ability to influence human beings genuinely in an interesting and positive manner delightfully tickling all the five senses.

We thank all the enlightened souls whose indeals, writings, guidance and blessings, directly or indirectly have helped in researching, modifying, writing and editing these stories.

May these hundred inspiring stories illuminate the lives of all human beings ethically, socially and personally. We hope that they will be the reader’s friend, philosopher and guide.

These stories have been earlier published in the book Sau Baton Ki Ek Baat in Hindi. Mrs Mridu Pradip Jain was entrusted with the English translation. Maitri charitable foundation undertook the work of transforming Sau Baaton Ki Ek Baat into Essence of Hundred Senses. This organization has been publishing books on Life’s philosophy written by us in Hindi and English. Maitri Charitable Foundation has been publishing books on Life by the Sadhvi Yugal.
