story – A king used to visit Lord Mahavir Swami. They tried to give Mahavir precious jewelery and other gifts. But, every time Swamiji used to say to the king, drop them. The king obeyed them and they used to drop things back there.
This went on for many days. One day the king said to his minister, ‘I take such precious things to be given to Mahavir Swami, but why do they tell all things to fall there? I also come down with those things. I am a king, I want to give them an offering, but they are not keeping any value of my things. I do not understand why Swamiji is doing this.
The minister was very intelligent. He said, ‘You go empty handed this time. Do not go with anything. Then let’s see what they say to fall. ‘ The king liked the minister’s words.
The next time the king left empty-handed, Mahavir Swami said, “Now drop yourself.” The king did not understand how to lower himself? ‘ He told Mahavir, ‘I don’t understand your words. Why are you asking for things to fall every day? ‘
Mahavir Swami said, ‘You are the king. You think you can win anyone by giving things. If I asked you to make yourself fall, it means that what happens in us is in the form of ego. I want to say that drop your ego and then stand here.
The king understood that he should not take pride in front of the guru.
Learning God makes Guru a medium to break the pride of humans. Gurus know that ego hurts in the future. This is such an evil, which presently brings happiness on display, but it can ruin everything.
