How much wealth you may need?
« on: March 14, 2009, 03:56:18 PM »
Man's desire for wealth is limitless.  Saint Tayumanavar says:  "Even
if one is given to rule the entire land, he would desire to conquer the oceans!"  Once a devotee prayed to Siva intently for wealth.  Siva
appeared before him and asked: What do you want?"  He answered.
Then Siva pointed his index finger towards the house.  The whole house turned into a golden palace!  The Siva entered his house.  What more do you want?"  The devotee grinned and showed the wooden cupboards, steel cupboards, stainless steel vessels, etc.,  Siva waved
his index finger towards these objects.  All turned into gold.  The
devotee was still grinning at him expectedly!  Siva was amused, and he asked him:  "Anything else?"  He said unashamedly:  "I want your index finger!"

Siva already lost half his body to Uma.  If someone asked him the index finger... What is the end?  He disappeared!

Arunachala Siva.
