The Lazy Man
A Lazy man was sleeping under a rayan tree. A small rayan fell
on his chest. However, he was too lazy to put the fruit into
his mouth. He waited for someone to pass by. After a while he
saw a camel rider in the distance. So he shouted, ''Camel rider,
The camel rider thought to himself, ''The poor man might be
ill and may want to drink some water or need other help.'' So
he stopped his camel and walked half a field over to the lazy
man. He asked, ''What can I do?'' Remaining lying down the lazy
man said, ''A rayan has fallen on my chest, kindly put it into
my mouth!'' The camel rider became cross. He said, ''I got off
my camel and walked across half a field to you. And this is
the only reason you called me for?'' He strode off very angry.
The lazy man called after him, ''You're a very lazy fellow!
All you had to do was put the rayan in my mouth.''
The lazy man had only to put the rayan into his mouth and yet
he called somebody else. How can such a person get ahead in
life? Satsang can be compared to the rayan fruit falling on
our chest. Shedding laziness, we should take full benefit of
