Bapu and Gopu were thickest friends. On the salary day both went to a Hotel and enjoyed their Tiffin there. Then both went outside and Bapu told Gopu that there was a Purana [Divinely] lecture by a Swamiji at temple and he invited his friend to join with him.
But Gopu refused and wants to go to a prostitute house and he invited Gopu to come with him. But Bapu refused to join with him and went to the “Purana” lecture at the temple.
After going to prostitute house and after some time Gopu fell disgusted with the place he went, and telling himself, “it is a very shameful act on me. My friend is listening to the lecture of the Sacred Swamiji in the temple and sees I am in a worst place. I am not fit to be the devotee of God”.
Bapu who was hearing the Purana lecture of Swamiji in the temple also become disgusted, and telling himself “I am a fool in attending this lecture; my friend has gone to a place where he is having a cheerful time. I have not listened to his words; I am a very unlucky fellow”.
The mind of man may be different. But men are judged by manners. For a man the meat is essential like that his manners are more essential.
We must learn from this that the Lord looks into a man’s real Heart only. These stories are told by Great Saints to explain the truth about God and to cultivate the people to follow the correct foot steps in their life. So even by Heart, we should not cultivate bad habits and we must follow correct principle in Life.
Sin is the root of sorrow.
