Lin Piao used to absent himself from classes very often.

One day the principal of the college made up his mind to expel him.

So he sent for the young man.

Lin arrived just as the principal was about to go for lunch.

“Is this the time to come!” said the principal, sternly.

“Forgive me, Sir,” said Lin, “but I got to college very late today.

You see, I found a lump of gold in our field.”

“A lump of gold!” said the principal, his eyes popping out.

“Oh, what are you going to do with it?”

“I decided to build a palatial house, buy several acres of land and several head of cattle,” said the student.

“I also decided to give you a small sum for the trouble you have taken in educating me.”

The principal was pleased and invited Lin to eat with him.

The young man ate ravenously but the principal hardly touched his food.

He was wondering how much Lin would give him and if it would be enough to buy that small paddy field he had always wanted.

“I hope you’ve kept the gold in a safe place,” he said, suddenly coming out of his reverie.

“I never got a chance to do that,” said Lin. “It disappeared the moment my mother shook me awake.”

“What!” screamed the principal. “You mean it was all a dream?!”

The young man nodded.

The principal controlled himself with a great effort of will.

“I’m happy you remembered me in your dream,” he said, finally. “I hope you remember me when you really get some gold. Now please leave.”

It was only when the young man had left that the principal remembered why he had sent for him.


In this kaliyuga, Rules change according to the situation. If one finds any benefits from a source, he shows more attachment to that source. If he finds that there is nothing in that source, he deserts it immediately.

Kaliyuga is full of Selfsh people. The people change the rules and customs for selfish reasons.

So, Aim to escape from this selfish material life and get the asylum of Krishna without wasting the time.
