Once lived a hermit in forest. He was quiet famous and people used to visit him. One day hermit wanted to do something for people but didn’t had any money so he decided to go to king for help.
Hermit was welcomed to the palace. When hermit came, king was busy doing his prayers. Hermit sat in the prayer hall at the corner where king was doing his prayer.
Hermit heard king praying, “O Lord, give me money.. give me riches..” and so on..
After hearing hermit got up to leave but as hermit was leaving, king signed him to wait.
After prayer was over King said to hermit, “You came to see me.. yet you are leaving without saying anything? Why??”
Hermit replied, “Your majesty, Now i understand that i need not to trouble you about it.. I must leave now..”
King insisted hermit to stay and tell me reason to come. Hermit said, “Your majesty, I came here to ask you for money.. but now i must leave..”
King replied, “Then why are you going without money??”
Hermit replied, “When i saw you praying i found that you were too a beggar.. you were praying to God for riches and money. There upon i thought to my self.. Why should i beg to a beggar himself?? If i have to beg than let me Beg of God..”
