The Abode of God
One day, an old lion felt hungry. Being unable to hunt, he thought of a plan and started limping. A monkey sitting on a tree saw him and asked, “Why are you limping”
At this the lion replied, “I have committed many sins in my life. Now I am old and want to repent for them. I am walking carefully so that I might not kill any ant on the way.”
The monkey came down from the tree to meet the noble lion. The lion at once caught hold of him. But the monkey was very clever. He suddenly started laughing.
When the lion asked the reason for laughing, the monkey said, “One who will laugh at this moment will go to the abode of god.” The lion himself at once started laughing.
The monkey got an opportunity and immediately climbed the tree. The lion repented for his foolishness.
