Poverty of Spirit

Posted: March 4, 2014 in Short Stories

A poor man asked the Buddha,
“Why am I so poor?”

The Buddha said, “you do not learn to give.”

So the poor man said, “If I’m not having anything?”

Buddha said: “You have a few things,
The Face, which can give a smile;
Mouth, you can praise or comfort others;
The Heart, it can open up to others;
Eyes, who can look the other with the eyes of goodness;
Body, which can be used to help others.”

So, actually we are not poor at all, poverty of spirit is the real poverty.
