There was a King, who had no son. He tried for long time but still he had no child. One day, King’s advisor went to a Tantrik (Occultist) to seek help. Tantrik gave suggestion that if a boy is sacrificed then a boy will be born to king and queen.
An announcement was made in kingdom, anyone who will give his son to King for sacrifice, will be given loads of gold in return.
There was family in his kingdom which had many children and was very poor. Among them was one boy who would not make much contribution in household work because he spend most of his time attending satsang of saints.
Hearing the King’s announcement, family thought why not give that child to the king for sacrifice and get money in exchange. So, child was given to the King and as promised, King gave his family a lot of money in exchange for the child.
Soon, preparations were made to sacrifice the child by tantrik.
On day of sacrifice, King was also present at place were sacrifice was to be done. Before rituals began, King asked child, “What is your last wish?”
Child said, “Can i get bags of sand.”
King ordered his servant to fulfill boy last wish. As asked servants bought bags of sand to boy.
Boy took bags of sand and one by one made four heaps of sand. Then boy broke three heaps of sand and sat down with his hands folded in front of fourth heap of sand and said to King, “Do whatever you want to do now..”
Seeing all this tantirk got scared and asked boy, “First tell me what have you done and why?”
King also asked same question to boy.
Boy said, “The first heap of sand represented my relation with my parents. It was their duty to protect me but they didn’t follow their duty and sold me for money. So i broke it.
Second heap was for my relatives. They should have asked my parents to stop but they didn’t. So i broke it too.
Third heap, O King, was yours because it was King’s duty to protect the subjects of his kingdom but here King himself is trying to sacrifice me, so i broke this heap too.”
Saying this boy got silent.
King asked, “What’s last heap for?”
Boy replied, “Fourth heap belongs to my God. Now, only and only i trust my God. So, here i am sitting in front of it.”
On hearing boy’s answer King was shaken from inside.
He thought, “It is not known whether a son will be born to me even after the child is sacrificed. So why not make this child my own son? This child is so sensible and devotee of God. Where else can i get a child as good as him.”
After much thought, King made a decision. He adopted that boy and declared him prince of the kingdom.
