2019-28 - Be the lion, not the wolf...

Once a young man left his village to meditate below a tree in a nearby jungle. He used to come back to his village twice a day for food.

One day, he noticed that there was a paralysed wolf near the tree, and a lion came to feed it every day. He thought that there is a message in this that he should not leave the place of meditation for getting food. Someone will get food for him as it is being done for the wolf. So, he stopped going to the village for food.

After few days he began screaming in pain of hunger as nobody brought food for him. One wise man saw him screaming and asked  what had happened to him. The young man told him about the message he received from the wolf, getting fed by the lion. The wise man told him that there was definately a message, but you chose to be a wolf instead of lion.

The message was that instead of sitting here like the wolf, you should go and help others like the lion, you will get your share of peace and happiness.
