If you dig a well by the side of the sea, you will get only brine water. If you dig a well near the Ganga, you will get pure water of the Ganga itself. When you have got the pure water of the Ganga flowing nearby, why do you waste your energy, time and money by digging wells here and there? There is no need for any other well anywhere. God is like the Ganga. Be near God and be dear to Him and enjoy Bliss.
