The Saint and the Scorpian
Once there lived a saint. He was very kind with others. One day he wanted to
visit a temple to offer his prayers. He started to walk from his place. After a very long walk he felt very tired and thirsty. He wanted to drink water and he was searching for.He saw a small river nearby. He was happy. He went there and when he was about to drink water, he saw a scorpian in the water, struggling for its life. He wanted to save its life. He atonce tried to bring it out. While he was taking it out, the scorpian stang him and again fell into the water.
Again he tried the same thing and the scorpian again did the same.The same happened many times. A passerby who was watching all the actions, asked why he was again and again trying to save it dispite of its stinging. The saint answered that the small animal scorpian is always sticking of its quality of stinging, and why should I change my quality. He further said that stinging is the habit of the scorpian and saving other's life is my habit.
From this story we understand that we should always help others, even if they are bad.
