Anecdote Of The Week: Are You Aware That The Universal Law Of Karma Is Always In Effect?

"A lion was awakened from sleep by a mouse running across his face. With a terrible roar, the lion seized the mouse with his paw and was about to kill him.

'Oh please,' the mouse begged. 'Spare my life! I will be sure to repay your kindness.'

The King of Beasts was so amused at the thought of a mouse being able to help him that he let the frightened creature go.

Shortly afterward the lion fell into a trap set by some hunters and was hopelessly caught in a net of strong ropes. In his misery the lion roared so loudly that all the beasts in the forest heard him.

The mouse recognized the roar of his former captor and ran th the place where the lion lay trapped. At once the mouse began to gnaw the ropes with his teeth. He gnawed rope after rope until at last the lion was free.

'Thank you,' said the grateful lion.'" -From ,"Aesop's Fables"
