Imitate the tiger not the fox.

Narada the Hindu sage was on a pilgrimage to the temple of Lord Vishnu. He was given hospitality one night in the hut of a childless couple. Before he set out again the man said to Narada,

“You are going to worship Vishnu. Tell him to give me a child.”

Narada said to the Lord, “Be merciful to that man and give him a child.”

The Lord replied, with an air of finality, “It is not in the destiny of that man to have children.”

So Narada performed his devotions and went back home. Five years later he was on pilgrimage again and was again given shelter by the hospitable couple- This time two little children were playing at the door of the hut. “Whose children are these?” said Narada.

“Mine,” said the man. Narada was intrigued. The man went on, “After you left us, five years ago, a sanyasi came to our village. We put him up for the night and next day, before he departed, he blessed my wife and me... and these are the fruits of his blessing.”

When Narada got to the temple next day, he shouted from the forecourt, “Did you not tell me it was not in the destiny of that man to have children? He has two!”

The Lord laughed aloud when he heard this. “That must be the doing of a saint,” he said. “Saints have the power to change destiny!”

As they discovered at a wedding feast in Cana when the mother of Jesus got him to work a miracle before his destiny allowed it.

A man walking through the forest saw a fox that had lost its legs and wondered how it lived. Then he saw a tiger come with game in its mouth. The tiger had his fill and left the rest for the fox.

The next day too God sent, the tiger to feed the fox.

The man began to wonder at God’s greatness and thought. “I too shall lie in a corner trusting the Lord to give me ail I need.”

He did this for a month, and was almost at death’s door when he heard a Voice that said, “O you who are on the path of error, open your eyes to the Truth! Imitate the tiger not the fox.”

On the street I saw a naked child, hungry and shivering in the cold. I became angry and said to God, “Why do you allow this? Why don’t you do something?” God did not reply.

That night he said, quite suddenly, “I certainly did something. I made you.”
