We all know, the lion is the King of the jungle. Once a lion was fast asleep when a little mouse ran up and down on him.

This awakened the lion. He was angry and caught the mouse with his huge paw. Then he opened his big mouth to swallow him.

“Please forgive me, O King of jungle”, criedthe little mouse.” I shall never forget your kindness.

I may be small but who knows, someday I may turn out to be some kind of help to you.”The lion laughed and took pity and set the mouse free.

A few days later, the lion got caught in a hunter’s net.He roared but in vain.The little mouse heard and ran towards the lion.Immediately the mouse started cutting the net with its tiny teeth.

Soon the lion was free and thanked the littlemouse.Thereafter, they became friends.

The Fox And The Pheasant

One moonlight evening as the master fox was taking his usual stroll in the woods. he saw a number of Pheasants perched quite out of his reach on a limb of a tall old tree. The Fox was very cunning and he got an idea to get the settles.

The Sly Fox soon found a bright patch of moonlight where the pheasants could see him clearly then.he raised herself up on his hind leg and began a wild dance first. He whirled around and round like a top. Then he hopped up and down cutting all sorts of strange capers.

The pheasant stared guilty. they hardly dared blink for fear of losing him out of their sight. A single instant now the Fox made as it climbed a tree.

Now we fell over and lay still playing dead.and the next instant he was hopping on all fours, his back in the air and his bushy tail shaking. so that it seemed to throw out silver sparks in the moonlight.

By this time the poor bird’s heads were in a world. and when the Fox began his performance all over again so days did they become that they lost their hold on the limb.and fell down one by one to the Fox.

Moral: remember this too much attention to danger may cause us to fall victim to it.


The Ant and The Grasshopper

One beautiful summer day a lazy grasshopper was sitting and enjoying the Sun. Just as he did every day then a hard-working ant passed by bearing along with great effort an ear of corn.

That he was talking to his nest why don’t you come and chat with me ask the grasshopper instead of working all day?

 I am saving food for the winter season, said the ant. I think you should do the same: what will you eat when the weather gets cold and how will you feed your hungry household. The grasshopper laughed and said you are always in such a hurry.

Hi, do you always work and worry? why bother about the winter now said the grasshopper we have got plenty of food at present. but the ant was very wide and didn’t pay attention to the grasshoppers words. He continued to work hard and stored enough food for the winter. the winter came sooner than expected.

The grasshopper couldn’t even find a place to stay and anything to eat. He went to the ants house and begged him for food and shelters. I’m sorry but I can’t help you, the ant said. I only have room and food for my family.

So go and find help somewhere else. I should have followed the ant’s example the grasshopper said sadly. 

Moral: There’s a time for work and there’s a time for play if you play during the time you were supposed to work. Then be ready to face the consequences.



A long long time ago, two brother frogs lived in a marsh! They had enough water to drink, and they played around merrily! But one summer it got so harsh that the marsh dried up! The two frogs had no water to drink, so they left in search of another place to live!

They looked water everywhere, and they traveled for days and days. Just as they were about to give up hope, by and by they came upon a well!

The younger foolish brother hopped on the well to get a better look.

The bottom of the well was pitch black, and he couldn’t see anything!“This looks like a nice place” said the little frog“Lets jump in and settle here!”The older brother with a wiser head on his shoulders replied, “Not so fast my brother.

Supposing this well dried up like the marsh, how would we get out—“But before the older and wiser brother could finish his sentence, the younger foolish brother leaped into the well without thinking.

With a great thud,the frog hit the bottom of the well.When he looked around,he found no water!

And there was no way to escape either. Then the younger foolish brother thought, “I should have listened to my brother, and looked before I leaped” “Now I’m stuck here, with no means to escape.”


How Can I Calm My Mind? 

Once upon a time a disciple asked his master, how can I calm my mind?

The master said I am too busy to talk to you right.now, why not consult your first Dharma

brother he did as he was told and asked the same question.

The first thought my brother said I have a headache, I can’t talk now why not talk to the second Dharma brother. but the second Dharma brother said I have a stomachache why don’t you just go and talk to our Dharma master.

So he went back to his master and complained nobody told me anything nobody gave me any

answers. but the master said to him reprovingly you really are a stupid fool.everybody has been giving you the answer.

Because of this, the disciple reached enlightenment you see in life in your life. no one else can solve your problems, for you, it is your mind.you have to engage in an inner conversation

and understanding of your will, of your desires, of your mind power and of all the existence that we live in play with your thoughts.

Think about everything contemplate you. don’t need assistance from anyone else, because all the truth of the world lies within you in your heart and your mind.



Once upon a time a little girl lived in a small very simple poor house on a hill.and as she grew she would play in the small garden and as she grew .She was able to see over the garden fence and across the valley to a wonderful house high on the hill this house had golden windows.

 so golden and shining that the little girl would dream of how magical.it would be to grow up and live in a house with golden windows instead of an ordinary house like hers and although.she loved her parents and her family.

 She yearned to live in such a golden house and dreamt all day about how wonderful and exciting. it must feel to live there,when she got to an age where she gained enough skill and sensibility to go outside.

 her garden fence she asked her,

mother if she could go for a bike ride outside the gate and down the lane after pleading with her mother. Finally allowed her to go insisting that she kept close to the house and then wander too far.

The day was beautiful and the little girl knew exactly where she was heading down the lane and across the valley. She rode her bike until she got to the gate of the golden house across on the other hill. as she dismounted her bike and leant it against the gate post. She focused on the path that led to the house and then on the house itself and was so disappointed.

 as she realized all the windows were plain and rather dirty reflecting nothing other than the sad neglect of the house that stood there licked. she was so sad she didn’t go any further and turned around heartbroken.

 as she remounted her bike she glanced up and saw a sight to amaze her there across the way on her side of the valley was a little house and its windows glistened golden as the sun shone on her little home.

 she realized that she had been living in her golden house and all the love and care she found there was what made her home the golden house everything .she dreamed was right there in front of our nose you see in life in your life.

 if you are looking for a golden house the house with the golden windows don’t look across the road look at your own house where you are living.
