Rich Fool(Luke 12:16-21)
Once upon a time there was a certain rich man who had a very big farm.
There was a great harvest that year and his workers gathered lots of grain.-"How blessed I am! I am Rich!"-exclaimed this rich man.Suddenly one of his workers came to him:- "Sir, you've had such a good harvest. Can you spare a few bags of grain for our families?"-"No, I have to keep all I have for myself!"He thinks:-"But what shall I do? The harvest was so great that I have no room to store it in my barns.-Oh, no!! I may have to give some away!-Aha! I know what I'll do! …-I will pull down my old barns...-...and I will build bigger  barns!.... -I will say to my soul,"Soul, you have many riches stored up for many years.

Story of Eklavya
When Guru teaches his disciples he teaches them equally. That knowledge which he imparts to them is like clear water, whatever color you mix in it, water becomes of the same color. So the weapons are the same - Gadaa, or bow or sword, but when they are in different disciples' hands they take a different meaning, such as Gadaa is same, but when Bheem will take it, it will have different meaning, but when Duryodhan will take it, it will have a completely different meaning. Then what Guru can do?

One day a child named Eklavya came to Drone and requested him to be his Guru for archery. Drone asked him - "Who are you?" Eklavya siaid - "I am Eklavya, the son of Hiranyadhanu, the king of Nishaad." Drone wouldn't take him as his disciple because he was not a Kshatriya, so he said - "Dear child, I cannot take you as my disciple because I am teaching to these Kshatriya princes. I lik…

The Young man who sold the dead mouse
Once on a time when Brahmadatta was reigning in Benares in Kasi,
the Bodhisatta was born into the Treasurer's family, and growing up, was made Treasurer, being called Treasurer Little.
A wise and clever man was he, with a keen eye for signs and omens.
One day on his way to wait upon the king, he came on a dead mouse lying on the road ; ]
and, taking note of the position of the stars at that moment,
he said, "Any decent young fellow with his wits about him has only to pick that mouse up, and he might start a business and keep a wife." 
His words were overheard by a young man of good family but reduced  circumstances,
who said to himself, "That's a man who has always got a reason for what he says."
And accordingly he picked up the mouse, which he sold for a farthing at a tavern
for their cat.

With the farthing he got molasses and took drinking water in a water- pot.

Story 1. A Lesson from Disabled People

Once, a visitor was being shown around a leper colony in India. The colony was built to provide a shelter for those people who were poor and had various physical disabilities. At noon a gong (a metal disk that produces a sound when hit with a hammer) sounded to gather the inhabitants for the midday meal. People came from all parts of the compound to the dining hall. Suddenly, everyone started laughing at seeing two young men; one riding on the other's back, pretending to be a horse and a rider. They were having lots of fun. As the visitor watched, he was told that the man who carried his friend was blind, and the man being carried was lame (who couldn't walk). The one who couldn't see used his feet; the one who couldn't walk used his eyes. Together they helped each other and reached their destination.Let us use each other's strengths to make up for the weaknesses of oth…

Akbar and Birbal
Story 1 - Question for Question

One day Akbar asked Birbal, "Birbal, can you tell me how many bangles are on your wife's hand?"  Birbal said, "No, Huzoor, I cannot."  "You cannot. Although everyday you see her hand, still you cannot tell how many bangles are on her hand. How is that?" said Akbar.
Birbal said, "Let's go to the garden, Your Majesty. And I will tell you "How is that" and they both went to the garden. They both went down a small staircase which led to the garden. After reaching in the garden Birbal asked, "You daily climb up and down this small staircase, could you tell how many steps it has?"
Akbar smiled and then changed the subject.
