My Mom told me this Story !!!

Dear elder brother,

Your story of the king with a strong faith in God was quite inspiring. Let me tell you another story of a king,  which teaches us to maintain equanimity in all situations.

Once upon a time, a king was cutting a sugarcane stick with a knife. While cutting the stick, his fingers got badly severed so that blood started oozing out. On this, his diwan commented, " Whatever God does, does for good." On hearng this, the King angrily  said to the diwan, "What good will I beget  by severing my fingers?", "Get out my Kingdom and never show your face again." The diwan left the court before telling to the king that "Even my removal might be the will of God and whatever He does is for our betterment."

After a few days of this incident, the king went for hunting in the forest. While he was busy hunting, few Bhils (forest dwelling tribals) captured him and tied him up for sacrificing him to their deity. While they were busy bathing him before the sacrifice, they noticed that his fingers were badly severed. Seeing this,they talked among themselves that "Only a human being who is perfect in bodily features be offered to the deity, so let us abandon this person." Heaving a sigh of relief, the king returned to his kingdom. Sleeping on his bed, the words of his diwan ringed in his mind  " Whatever God does, does for good." The next morning, he ordered his servants to send the diwan back to the court.

The king gave diwan a warm reception. He related to the diwan, as to what happened the previous day. He later asked the  diwan, "But what good did you beget when I dismissed you ?"  The diwan replied wittily, "If you had not dismissed me then, being a diwan, I would have gone hunting with you in the forest. Since your fingers were badly severed, the Bhils would have allowed you to go,  but leaving me for the sacrifice." "Thus, I got saved because of my dismissal by you..."

Hearing these words of wisdom of his diwan, the king rewarded him generously.

When I am faced by harsh dualities of life, I always remember this story. It immediately energises me. Similarly, it can energise everyone else...

Warm Regards,

Veeral Gandhi
