7. JAIN STORY

 

KESARI

King Vijayachandra was the ruler of Kamrup city. In the same city, there lived a merchant named Sanghdatta, who had a son called Kesari. The merchant was known for his honesty, but his son was not. He was a thief. The merchant tried hard to change him, but he could not succeed. He was so fed up with his son's habit, that he gave up on him. The merchant went to the king and brought this matter to his attention.

He said, ‘I am ashamed that my son is like that. Please, you take care of him, because I do not want to have anything to do with him.’ The king called the son and asked him to leave his kingdom. Kesari left the town. While crossing the forest, he saw a water tank. He drank some water and sat down to rest. All of a sudden, he saw a man descending from the sky.
