A person went to a saint. ”I am unlucky. I don’t have anything. It’s better to die than to live such a life.” The saint said, “Do you have any idea of the things you have? If not then I’ll give you. What are you willing to take in return of your one arm, one leg and one eye? I am ready to give 100 gold coins for each of the parts.” The person said, “I can’t give them, how will I live without them?” The saint said, “Fool, you already have property worth crores, then also you are crying for having nothing”.
There are many such people who don’t recognize their true worth and consider themselves unlucky. They realize when some enlightened one teaches them lesson.
